Wearable technology is any smart technology device worn on the skin that measure and conveys biofeedback in the form of vital signs and ambient data. Wearable devices such as smart watches and activity trackers are a part of the Internet of Things, a system of interrelated computing devices, for example, connecting a user’s car with their home.
Wearable technology is useful for patients of various conditions. A noteworthy example of a patented piece of wearable technology includes the Wearable Technology for Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring, (https://patents.google.com/patent/US20170164878A1/en?q=wearable+tech&oq=wearable+tech), useful for patients diagnosed with Type I or Type II diabetes. Glucose monitoring, for example, may prevent dramatic fluctuations in blood sugar that can send a diabetic patient to the emergency room.
If you have invested significant time and resources into inventing a piece of wearable technology, it is in your best interest to protect your invention by means of a patent. Having worked with sophisticated inventions as both a software developer and an Intellectual Property attorney for over 25 years, Attorney Mark Terry (http://plusfirm.com/staff-member/mark-terry-esquire/) knows how important it is to take ownership of your inventions.
