Activity trackers are creeping their way into clinics...

February this year, 2014, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved two wrist worn trackers from a British company, Camntech. The devices are not connected to smartphones and are reported to be very accurate and are recommended for use in clinical trials. In July, 2014, dorsaVi, an Australian company obtained clearance for the ViMove sensor system, which is also intended to accurately track activity levels.

This is potentially great news for health professionals such as physiotherapists who can now gain insights into the activity levels of their patients on a day to day basis. This is information they never had access to before.
