An increase in lifestyle diseases continuously pushes patients to monitor their health status and avoid more serious medical complications, notes the report. Medical devices such as cardiac monitors are continuously gaining market share in the wireless portable medical device applications, add report authors.

In emerging economies, wireless portable devices could be seen as a leapfrog technology that allows healthcare systems to avoid investing in incremental improvements of existing medical devices, similar to the way in which mobile phones replaced further investment in aging, obsolete landline technology.

Segmented by technology, component, application, and geography, the report covers the full range of sensors that are used in medical diagnostic equipment along with the major applications of the wireless portable medical device market including monitoring, medical therapeutics, diagnosis, and fitness and wellness.
