Apart from the package deal of seasonal and viral infections, the monsoons also bring with them a disruption of routine – be it the daily morning walks, your daily commute to work or usual eating patterns. This disruption of routine can cause a cascading domino effect on a number of lifestyle aspects, one among which can be the management of chronic health issues.
Fortunately, one of the silver linings of this pandemic has been an accelerated transformation in the healthcare space. Advancements in home-care or at-home solutions, have made self-checks easier and more accessible for an average person; notably at-home diagnostics and rapid COVID self-tests have gone a long way in helping put minds at ease or ensuring timely intervention when needed.
While, rainfall is unpredictable and its intensity can change in the blink of an eye, fluctuations of your blood glucose levels or heart beat can be a much more major cause for concern. Innovations like discreet bio-wearables and remote-monitoring technologies can bring some welcome relief in these unexpected situations.
On the one hand, contemporary state-of-the-art wearable glucose sensors can help keep a real-time check on glucose levels anytime and anywhere, without discomfort. And on the other hand, minimally invasive, Bluetooth enabled heart monitoring devices make remote check-ins with your doctor a seamless process. These mobile app linked devices, like an insertable cardiac monitor or pacemakers, deliver reports of the data gathered to your doctor so they can keep an eye on your heart no matter where you are, putting you in better control of your healthcare management.
