Why are adults using health care devices?

Just a fun look at how people are using connected health devices from Internet Innovation Alliance…

It doesn’t actually say how many (or what percentage of) adults use a device for heath reasons but I think we could conservatively say a third do. I wore a Fitbit for years and I have to say for myself it did get me thinking about how to sneak in extra steps. So now I walk outside whenever I have a conference call. I’m getting exercise and I’m not distracted with my email. When I’m in a waiting room, I tend to pace. I park at the back of the lot.

It’s a little way that being online can make life a little better – for those who have access.
