Wearable Technology Changing Healthcare

As I was looking for innovation in healthcare, I came across a company called Palarum that got my attention. Palarum is pushing the envelope of technology and innovation to significantly improve healthcare. In my research, I went to Patrick Baker who is a visionary and pioneer innovating at the intersection of wearables and technology. Robert Reiss: Can you share with us how new wearable technologies are helping to improve patient care? Patrick Baker: As a former chief nursing officer, I experienced firsthand the benefits and challenges of introducing new technologies that not only improve patient care but also improve the patient experience. This is especially true for SMART wearable technology. Wearable medical devices provide clinicians the ability to remotely monitor patients 24/7 in almost any setting. This is especially important as hospitals continue to expand their telehealth and “at home” care capabilities. Palarum - Patrick_1 Patrick Baker, CEO, Palarum CHRIS BAKER Reiss: An example of new wearable technology is Palarum’s PUP® Smart Sock. Can you share with us where it is currently being used and the impact it is having? Baker: A hospital stay is stressful, the PUP® Smart Sock enhances patient comfort and safety and is a tremendous benefit for healthcare providers, providing a convenient, easy-to-use, scalable remote patient monitoring solution. Eliminating the use of motion detection bed alerts, allows patients to move around in their bed uninhibited.
