As consumers increasingly embrace the more affordable nature of wearable devices – choosing to monitor their own health and wellbeing with gadgets such as FitBit or Jawbone – it is no surprise that the wearable device market is set to grow to £25 billion by 2019 (1). However, this wearable technology has also been widely adopted by other markets, and none more so than by the healthcare industry, which reportedly earned revenues of $5.1 billion in 2015, according to a recent report by Frost and Sullivan (2).

One way to do this is via digital technology and mobile health (5).
