wearable technology

For more than 40 years, our VELCRO® Brand solutions have transformed medical care and are now transforming health wearable technology. Our innovative thinking helps medical professionals and their patients each and every day.

Our mission is to create products that enable health professionals to deliver the highest quality patient care. That’s why our technology is transforming the world of wearable medical devices and health technology.

 

The Past, Present and Future of Wearable Technology

Over the last few years, the world of wearable technology has changed dramatically. As consumers become more accustomed to wearing connected devices, wearables have evolved from treatments, like eyeglasses, to diagnostic tools. Technology has increasingly shifted from fixing basic problems to monitoring and predicting more complex health concerns.

Consumers are surrounded by wearable diagnostic medical devices. A smartwatch on your wrist, blood pressure monitor and even EKG monitors are all designed to be easily integrated into a patient’s day-to-day life. Technology provides medical professionals and the user a real-time snapshot of health. To be useful, wearable devices must be comfortable, easy to use and most importantly, work well.

Around the world, Velcro Companies provides medical device manufacturers unbeatable innovation. We are uniquely positioned to help customers improve wearable technology and accelerate its use. This year has amplified the trend towards remote healthcare, or ‘telehealth.’ This makes wearable technology even more valuable as medical professionals have real-time access to accurate data that can improve care and save lives.
