How Have Body Sensors Evolved?

Read Transcript

I think the way it is today it's difficult because they are fairly intrusiveness and it's difficult to use, but I think as you are starting to as technology continues to evolve and they get smaller then that's when things will change. When the radiants continue to get smaller and everything gets better and battery life is a big issue when that gets better then everything is going to continue to evolve and take off because one of the things that people forget with health care is in the past, what we've always done is we've prescribed assuming that people are all very similar, so if you have diabetes here's what you need to do, and what we've learned, especially over the last few years is that, that's absolutely that's not the case everybody is totally unique, and so when you we're diagnosed with something, you were lumped into a bucket, but now you've got to get rid of those buckets and say okay, here is what's wrong with you now, you have to figure out with me what your program needs to be to manage this disease better, and everyone is different, people respond to different foods, people respond to different activities, people respond to different lifestyles, so you gotta figure out on your own, what are the things that really work.

And the only way you can figure that out is with that data, I did this, look what happened here, I did this, look what happened here, and it has to be real time, because it can't be like, I did this, this and this, and a month later I kind of went and looked at this and thought it didn't get any better okay, well that must be all be wrong.

Well, there is a lot going in between those conversations.
