Debate over medical grade vs consumer wearables

Wearable devices are driving a revolution in the medical space but the key is accurate data, which means medical grade devices, a digital health conference has heard.

Founder and CEO of Melbourne-based technology company dorsaVi Andrew Ronchi told The Digital Health Show Conference in Sydney on Friday that wearables were changing healthcare largely because consumers were calling for it.

Mr Ronchi, a physiotherapist with a PhD in Computer and Systems Engineering, and his organisation have developed a suite of wearable sensor technologies to measure and interpret human movement for the rehabilitation, occupational health and safety and elite sports markets.
