Wearable Sensor-Monitoring Technology Could Change Preventative Medicine Forever

The second in my three part series on Future Tech stories coming out of Engadget Expand features wearable devices which use sensors to monitor the user.

Wearable devices are making headlines from a watch perspective but the ability to check your emails or tweet out from your wrist is just the tip of the iceberg.

In this article, I showcase some of the wearable tech available in the near future which will monitor and analyze our everyday health whether it be our physical or our emotional state. 

Toronto-based InteraXon CEO, Ariel Garten, presented her headband, Muse, which monitors brainwaves which can tell a lot about who you are and help you get to where you want to be. 

Scanadu and MC10 - other leaders in this space, joined Garten on a discussion on when we will see these devices take on mass adoption and what the impact of democratizing medical information means for the overall profession / industry.
