Conventional Monitoring Technologies Pave Way for Connected Devices

Vital signs monitoring systems have gradually become an integral part of the modern-day healthcare landscape. Due to significant advancements in technology, vital signs monitoring systems are increasingly being used across hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, clinics, and homecare settings. Conventional technologies, which include adhesive and mechanical sensors for vital signs monitoring are gradually being replaced by cutting-edge connected devices, owing to improved patient safety and accuracy provided by the latter. Traditionally, in a majority of hospitals worldwide, nurses are taking charge of monitoring vital signs and documenting the results. However, due to the redundancy and time restraints of this process, the demand for vital signs monitoring systems is witnessing considerable growth.

Due to the shortcomings of conventional vital signs monitoring techniques, an array of vital signs monitoring devices, including electronic thermometer and pulse oximeter, among others, have been launched in the vital signs monitoring systems market. In the past few years, wearable health devices have gradually made their way into the global healthcare landscape and are increasingly being used for vital signs monitoring. At present, vital signs monitoring systems are being used in several applications, including diagnosis support, anomaly detection, and prevention of chronic health problems.

The growing prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide, surge in the geriatric population, and favorable reimbursement policies are some of the leading factors that are expected to boost the growth of the vital signs monitoring systems market during the forecast period. Thus, the global vital signs monitoring systems market is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 11.8 Bn by the end of 2027.
