Event Details: 

Over the past 2-3 years, there has been an influx of IoT products in Wellness and Health space. Product makers have usually aimed at addressing consumer needs directly, thus breaking the lengthy and traditional clinical trial, regulatory approval, physician prescription and insurance reimbursement cycle. The result is a much more rapid market validation, product iteration and user adoption path. At Healthy Bee we have been particularly interested in IoT Health Tech products for a healthy pregnancy and newborn care. Engineers around the world are creating innovative devices tackling problems ranging from fertility tracking, fetal development monitoring, to managing breastfeeding, safe sleeping, and early child development. In this talk, Jay will share observations and predictions for a new dimension that these smart products bring to the life of Baby Care.
