Wearables and Digital Biomarkers for Cardiovascular Diseases and Neuroscience

Wearable sensors are already part of everyday lives of many people. From tracking steps to heart rate, the technology has continuously advanced. In parallel, medical research is equally advancing the monitoring of medical data in a non-invasive way - and the prospect of using it not only for diagnostic, but even therapeutic purposes.
