Abstract

In India rising threat of non-communicable diseases, increasing old age population, deteriorating food habits, poor doctor-patient ratio and low public interest in preventive health instruments causes a foremost loss to economy and country. Internet of Things based remote wearable sensors and the integrated cloud platform enable the healthcare providers and patients to work proactively on an analysis of vitals captured remotely with the help of wearable medical devices. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) refers to the worldwide network of interconnected medical devices and applications. On the clinical lateral, IoMT is being used to monitor a patient’s vitals (temperature, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure, respiration, ECG/EEG/EMG, etc.) and raise timely alarms. It is also being used for continuous monitoring of vitals and remotely assisting physicians with intuitive dashboards. It is surprising that despite of major benefits of applications mentioned above, IoT based health Start-ups are not performing well. This paper aims to accumulate the present and nascent literature on medical wearable’s devices from Industry, IoT India Congress Report, ASSOCHAM Report, Innovation Industries Conclaves, IEEE and various global researches. This is an original paper and holds significance as less of literature is available on Remote Connected Care Medical Wearable Technology in published domain. It will provide a robust literature review for future researchers.
