Mouser Electronics has published a new eBook in collaboration with Maxim Integrated, highlighting the future of wearable technology in healthcare.
In ‘Empowering Design Innovation for Healthcare Wearables’, subject matter experts from Maxim Integrated and Mouser provide in-depth technical explorations into the nuanced design and development of wearable devices, including challenges related to the power supply, sensor data, and accurate monitoring technology.
Wearable healthcare devices offer an important monitoring solution at a time when more and more patients struggle to access traditional face-to-face medical care.
A combination of technological innovation and advanced artificial intelligence has facilitated a new generation of wearable devices, allowing healthcare professionals to better respond to incoming patients using remotely collected data.
The new eBook from Maxim Integrated and Mouser features a combination of detailed technical walkthroughs, videos, and product information, providing engineers with the actionable knowledge required to begin developing wearable devices.
Maxim Integrated’s medical solutions include sensors, ICs, power supplies, and evaluation kits, providing the key components for the development of wearable healthcare devices such as rings, wristbands, patches, and earpieces.
‘Empowering Design Innovation for Healthcare Wearables’ includes convenient links and ordering information for 10 of the latest cutting-edge products from Maxim, including the MAX32630FTHR Pegasus rapid development platform. The MAX32630FTHR platform supports battery-optimized solutions for wearable devices through advanced power conversion and battery management.
The platform includes a variety of peripherals, offering a versatile solution for rapid proof-of-concept and development. Maxim Integrated’s MAXREFDES117 reference design is a low-power optical heart rate module that can be placed on a finger or earlobe to accurately detect heart rate. The minuscule board can be easily integrated into a range of wearable devices using either Arduino or embed platforms.
