Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted practically all sectors and social functions worldwide, including the wearable patches market. However, the wearable patches market sustained this impact as the demand for continuous monitoring with reduced contact increased during the pandemic.

During this period of fast expansion, the industry has learned to be adaptable and versatile. The necessity to harness and use digital infrastructure for remote monitoring has been brought into stark relief by the COVID-19 outbreak. There is a need for further effective disease monitoring and detection of individual and public health, which might be facilitated by wearable sensors, as current viral testing and vaccines are less patient compliant. The application of this methodology toward predicting the probability of COVID-19 is still required, even though its value has been used to associate physiological measures with activities of daily existence and human performance. Users of wearable technology could receive alerts when changes in their parameters match those linked to COVID-19 when combined with predictive platforms.
