The Past, Present, Future of the Wearable Medical Device.
Che-Wei (Johnny) Lin (Department of BioMedical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University)


Due to growth of the aging population and rising of the medical cost, healthcare needs become more and hospital stays become shorter. Based on this trend, importance of ambulatory health monitoring gets more attentions nowadays, and wearable medical devices are suitable for ambulatory health monitoring. Technology advances have lead the miniaturization in the size of integrated circuits (including micro-controller unit, sensor unit, and wireless transmission unit) and the reduction of power consumption. These facts open up great opportunities for developing wearable medical devices. The presentation “The past, present, future of the wearable medical device” will share our developing experiences on wrist-worn wearable medical device for detection purposes. Detection purposes of the wearable devices development mainly focuses on the hardware/software system integration and signal processing algorithm design. We will also share our field trial results of employing wearable medical device in the health promotion of chronic disease patients. Recently, many wearable medical devices for prediction/alert purposes have been developed. Asthma alert function is important to that a patient to take medicine in an appropriate timing. Implantable wearable medical device will be the future trend, the last part of this presentation will briefly introduce our NFC-based implantable blood pressure monitoring system.
