when you hear nowadays the term of intelligent devices, what do you think?
Smart phones, things for young people, modern technological trends?
I admit that until recently I thought about relatively similar things until I started to inquire more about the subject and saw that reality was different.
Now companies are investing in research and development of new technologies such as bracelets, glasses, lenses and clothes that achieve intercommunication among each other and make it possible to monitor your body.
With these devices we can have a better control over the signals emitted by our organism and in such a way we can receive signals that can alert about any change that could bring unwanted consequences.
It is true that many of these devices are developed for fitness and that for all its applications and new functionalities the largest audience is young people, but a new market is emerging: the elderly.
Companies have seen great uptrend in aging worldwide so, why not cover this market?
Why only young people when there are a biggest population of older people than young people in much of the world? Why let this market escape?
These companies are looking forward and are taking out new devices designed for the elderly, such as bracelets and smart watches.
Many may think that 'that' is not for them, but nothing is further from the truth as these technologies are made to help us on a day to day basis.
Currently with the growing obesity, transgenic foods reaching more prominence every day, the predominance of sugar in almost anything we eat makes that our body does not always respond as we wish.
The stress that we can live at certain stages of our life makes that different symptoms or diseases appear when until then they weren’t unknown to us. Our heart beats can accelerate or go very slowly which could cause Tachycardia or Bradycardia.
Both consequences can have devastating repercussions if we are not able to control them.
The sedentary lifestyle is another of the great evils that affects us mainly in advanced ages which makes physical inactivity the 4th cause of death in the world.
It is that we get used to the little physical activity either by a monotonous life, conformity with your comfort zone or simply the lack of motivation and joy.
So ... Why not to get control over what we eat, what we do while at the same time we monitor the signals that our body sends us?
This could prevent future diseases or injuries by recognizing various factors of our body as well as improve our physical condition through the control of them.
OK perfect!! We are already attentive to our pulse, we lead a more active life either walking or exercising.
But ... is that really what our body needs? Or at least the 'dose' we require? Remember, if it is bad to do too little, it is also bad doing more than what we can.
Only our doctor could tell us the right levels but what happens if it is difficult for us to reach our doctor?. Would not it be appropriate if he can tell us about our routines and our procedures no matter how far away we are each other?
On the other hand ... wouldn’t we feel much better if we could make our children aware of our health even in the distance?
Well today they have created a solution for all these approaches described above.
Wristbands and smart watches have been invented that keep you updated all day of all signals sent by your body.
In addition, the information on your cell phone bracelets and smart watches can be sent to your doctor through your cell phone and then he can track your health and can provide better care.
You can also be aware of the health of your children / grandchildren or another family member since all this information can be monitored remotely through the mobile application.
These wristbands and smart watches have been thought to be simple and practical since many people do not have the experience or find it difficult to learn new things.
If it is in your body where you will live the rest of your life ... then ... why not take care of it?...
