The Consumer Electronic Show media event was a huge success with telemedicine trends making it big.

FREMONT, CA: According to a latest estimation presented by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), consumer technology revenue will hit an all-time high of more than 505 billion dollars, with the healthcare and fitness industry accounting for a large share of those earnings. Steve Koenig, vice president of research at CTA stated that telemedicine, for example, is one of those tech-powered services that is transforming how they offer healthcare not just in the United States, not just in Europe, but around the world. On Monday, 3 January, Koenig shared with the media his opening remarks at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The exhibition will be open to the public from 5 January to 7 January, 2022.

CTA statistics show that one out of every four persons has participated in a video meeting call for medical reasons in the last year. In the first three months of the COVID-19 pandemic, one out of every four older Americans had a virtual medical visit, according to data from the University of Michigan. Remote patient monitoring is gaining a lot more traction and is truly changing the form of care," Koenig added. Omron, an electronics manufacturer and CES exhibitor, has developed VitalSight, a remote patient monitoring device. It connects a clinical electronic health record to blood pressure monitors and weight scales.

Therapeutic gadgets like VitalSight, according to Koenig, have the potential to help millions of people around the world manage chronic diseases. Doctors may keep a close eye on their patients by sharing important health information in real time or at regular intervals. As part of the home health centre, connected workout equipment is becoming increasingly popular. According to a CTA report, sales of connected exercise equipment increased dramatically during the pandemic, producing approximately 3.8 billion dollars in revenue in 2021. As per CTA estimations, connected exercise equipment will expand by 17 percent in 2022, reaching roughly 4.5 billion dollars in revenue. This trend indicates that health-conscious consumers are finding it practical and convenient to exercise at home, even while gyms and workout classes are starting to reopen.
