The Internet of Things (IoT) offered a new world that is full of possibilities, especially for the healthcare industry.  With the help of IoT applications and the internet, even the most ordinary medical machines can capture valuable additional data, besides offering extra information on the symptoms as well as trends, thereby giving patients better control of their lives along with treatment.

•    Smart continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and insulin pens: A Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) is one of the best devices using IoT applications which helps the diabetics for making continuously monitoring of patients' blood glucose levels and that too for several days constantly, by capturing readings at intervals regularly. 

•    Medication Dispensing Device by Philips: Because of this device designed by Philips which makes the application of IoT, patients will stay safe from missing a dose of their medication anymore. It is a perfect device for elderly patients who due to age forget taking medicine on time.

•    UroSense by Future Path Medical: This device is by Future Path Medical and specially designed for catheterized patients. It helps in checking their actual body temperature as well as urine output.

•    REFLEX By Kinetic: The company designed a workplace wearable that is designed for the purpose of improving the level of worker safety via biofeedback. It is good for firms whose employees need to do work which involves bending, lifting and twisting. When a worker bends in the wrong posture it provides feedback with light vibration indicating improper movement which may lead to causing injury. 

Apart from the above IoT applications in healthcare, there are various other applications that are used for Heart Monitors Reporting, Medical Alert Systems, Ingestible Sensors, Wireless Sensors, and Tractable Inhalers.  You can search online to get more information about such valuable applications of IoT in healthcare.
