Digital Health. Wearable Tech. Quantified Self. Curated.

Wearable tech.  Digital health.  Quantified self.  mHealth.  Connected home.  Internet of things.  However described, the phenomenon of using sensor technology to monitor, adapt, diagnose, gamify, and improve our health is in full swing at the Consumer Electronics Show.  As sensors become better and cheaper, signal processing becomes more sophisticated, and mobile technology becomes ubiquitous, the revolution in health and fitness will continue.  With this revolution comes the need for knowledge.  The knowledge to understand which technology can save one’s life; which gadgets are fun to have; and what is purely hype.  In the next days we will hear a lot about what’s happening in Las Vegas.  About brainwave headbands , heartbeat detecting watches, sleep monitoring gadgets, measuring babies’ vital signs, helping seniors age in place, and even ways to correct our posture, mood, and eating habits, through technology.  This intersection of science + technology + digital health is ApplySci’s raison d’etre. Our scientific committee leads our focus on the brain and neuro-technology, assistive technologies, and advances in monitoring the lungs, heart, diabetes, sleep, seniors, babies, and, of course, fitness – the key to wellness.   It is our pleasure, through our blog, conferences, and our soon to emerge from beta crowdfunding platform, to curate this movement.  To  apply science to change our world.

  1. This is an interesting area at an interesting time when science, technology, and digital health are converging at a dizzying pace. I am excited at the prospects.

    Wish you the best in your worthwhile endeavor.

  2. Asking questions are genuinely fastidious thing if you are not understanding something entirely, but this article gives fastidious
    understanding even.

  3. Superb post but I was wanting to know if
    you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could
    elaborate a little bit further. Many thanks!

  4. Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to
    give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your articles.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that
    deal with the same topics? Thank you!

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your
    next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  6. Greetings I am so excited I found your website, I really found you by mistake, while I was browsing on Bing
    for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like
    to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it
    all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also
    added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read
    more, Please do keep up the great work.

  7. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own weblog and was curious what all is required to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy
    so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

  8. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  9. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and
    amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  10. I hardly drop comments, however i did some searching
    and wound up here Digital Health. Wearable Tech. Quantified Self.

    Curated. | ApplySci DISCOVERIES. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be just me or does it look as if like some
    of the comments come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I’d like to follow
    everything new you have to post. Would you make a list of
    every one of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?

  11. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  12. Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this. I most
    certainly will send this article to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!
