What if wearables not only sensed the needs of the body, but acted on them, by delivering interventions such as micropulses, heating and cooling, and more? As the market for wearables explodes and customers simultaneously get more protective of their data (and their physical, on-body space), the wearables of the future will need to do more than just monitor & report, taking on advanced capabilities that drive positive outcomes. Founders, designers, and physicians have a shared responsibility to create technology that will improve people's lives. In this panel we will discuss the potential of wearables to shape the future of proactive healthcare; first by highlighting the intimate access wearables have to personal data, then diving deeper into the challenge of designing user/patient-centric devices, and finally acknowledging the market potential for proactive wearables.
