Wear our health

I am especially excited about the medical wearables I think they have the opportunity to save lives and improve the quality of life for many of those that are suffering from long term chronic diseases. The challenge will be availability and whether insurance covers these devices and Medicare includes them in their plans, without that aspect their utility will be only available to those that are wealthy enough to buy and maintain these devices.
