The ability to monitor movement, position, processes, physical parameters, analytes, and orientation using low-cost electronics in a small package that self-attaches to the data source is opening up channels to information that were not previously attainable. Stakeholders – researchers, caregivers, individuals, consignees – are re-thinking fitness routines, therapeutic protocols, investigational project strategies, and business models to account for the coming availability of data that presents new opportunities for progress, improved outcomes, enlightenment, fulfillment, logistical optimization and enhanced understanding.
