Military Wearable Medical Device Market Growth & Trends

The Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the market for military wearable medical devices because wearable technologies could monitor, detect, and prevent the spread of the virus. The Covid-19 virus has indirectly increased the demand for wearable medical devices. According to the WHO guidelines, viral infection mainly spreads through the eyes, nose, and mouth and it is difficult to identify the virus during the initial days of contract. Hence, with the innovative technology, the individual can regularly check and monitor their body temperature, oxygen level, heart rate, and body performance so that if they found any negative result, then they can immediately take precautions and treatment.

As soldiers have to train and work in a rough and harsh environment, the wearable device they are carrying must be lightweight and must provide full information of the soldier’s health and performance. Many market players are developing and introducing such wearable devices, which can bear the toughest environment of the battlefield. With the help of the device, armed forces can track and monitor the sleep of every individual, circadian stability, and all physical activity so that they can make necessary changes for better results as per the data.

As per the soldier modernization program, the military has decided to opt for lightweight wearable devices as soldiers already have to carry heavy stuff with them and such devices can increase the speed of the movement. The devices should be easy to carry and made of the toughest material to adapt to the environment. These devices should result in the betterment of the overall performance of the individuals.
