Portable defibrillators, stroke recovery devices and wearables are taking over CES.
Health tech always has a big presence at CES, and that's no different in 2020. Check out the best devices we've seen in the following slides and check back as we add more products throughout the week.
Neofect Smart Balance is a Dance Dance Revolution-like device for stroke victims to rehabilitate legs, balance and posture.
You can choose different games to help improve coordination and reduce damage that strokes can cause.
Mateo is a smart bathroom mat that tracks your weight, body composition and even posture.
Withing's latest smartwatch, the ScanWatch, has a one-lead electrocardiogram for checking for arrhythmia, measures blood oxygen levels and can continuously monitor for possible atrial fibrillation. It will also be able to check for sleep apnea.
Read more about the Withings ScanWatch.
Bisu is a smart urine test that tells you about your body and gives you advice. The at-home urine test can tell you about your hydration levels, electrolytes, dietary acid load (through pH levels) and ketones.
Out of Hong Kong, Glutrac promises to test your blood sugar levels without a finger prick -- it uses an algorithm instead. The tech is not ready for the US yet, but we could expect to see it in the next few years.
Kyocera is also working on technology that can also keep tabs on your blood glucose. Unlike Glutrac, this prototype device estimates carbohydrate metabolism by measuring pulse-wave patterns from a user's heartbeat. Kyocera plans to launch it in Japan this year, and it could eventually make its way to the US.
Heart Hero is a small, portable atrial defibrillator (AED) that can be used at home for sudden cardiac events. It uses AI technology to alert emergency services and detects heart rhythm to deem if shock if needed to save a life.
The MedWand is a small tool that has 10 different medical diagnostic functions that allow your doctor to examine you remotely. The device includes attachments for the heart, lungs, blood oxygen level, nose, throat, mouth and more.
Valencell Earbuds have sensors that can detect blood pressure in as little as 30 seconds and show the reading in real-time on the accompanying app.
