New devices are being designed on an almost-weekly basis to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems. As just one example, several companies are trying to develop an effective monitor that would not only measure the impact of a collision in sports, but determine whether it caused a concussion or other injury.
