ABOUT THE WEARABLE WELLNESS TRACK
On the 22nd November, Thrive Wearables will be running a packed schedule of speakers and interactive panel discussions at the Giant Health Event, and will be opening the debate on what happens next as we reach a level of maturity and advancement in Wearable Technology. This shift is opening up enormous opportunities for industry-wide disruption and reformation and will usher in an exciting time for health and wellness technology innovation.
This year, Giant Health 2018 is adding an important new module to our annual festival of health tech innovation; the Wearables Wellness track, run by Thrive Wearables. Data is more crucial than ever in healthcare, and wearables provide a cost-effective and centralised source of data for the healthcare domain. The expanding global wearables market is fast becoming an essential aspect of healthcare, and GIANT Health 2018 is proud to be highlighting this with a valuable whole day conference programme.Barry Shrier
