From FitBit to Misfit, the market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically - and not just for personal fitness and wellness. New devices are being designed on an almost-weekly basis to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems. As just one example, several companies are trying to develop an effective monitor that would not only measure the impact of a collision in sports, but determine whether it caused a concussion or other injury. This infographic from Pathfinders Software of Chicago take a look at just how much we can wear these days to stay healthy.
