Medical wearables have already disrupted the health and wellness space, and this burgeoning category shows no sign of slowing down in the years ahead. According to Transparency Market Research, the global wearable medical devices market is projected to reach $29.6 billion by the end of 2026. It’s clear that consumers are continuing to use wearables to track their health—but what’s next for these devices?
Apollo Neuroscience, Inc. took wearables beyond sleep monitoring and heart rate variability (HRV) tracking. According to the company, Apollo is the first wearable that helps the body beat stress by rapidly restoring its natural equilibrium—resulting in better sleep, energy and more. Rather than just tracking your body, the company states that this device uses vibration to improve your recovery time from stress. Apollo claims that the device’s gentle vibration waves signal safety to the body and improve HRV through the sense of touch. It was originally developed by physicians and neuroscientists at the University of Pittsburgh.
