Abstract

The Digital Catapult Centre brings together the UK’s brightest digital ideas, by programming targeted events for innovators. We also encourage serendipitous opportunities for startups and entrepreneurs to meet likeminded people through our programme of coffee mornings, digital breakfasts and meet ups. The Wearable Health: The Market Gap, part of our Digital Health Festival, looks at the innovative ways UK small businesses are using wearables to tackle health challenges, as well as the opportunities this growth market presents. With even conservative estimates predicting the wearables market to explode to hundreds of millions of units by 2025, we will discuss what businesses need to do next and the consumer pressures and fears they are already facing. We expect 80-100 people to attend the conference, including talks from key industry voices, award winning wearable organisations and tech pioneers trying to capitalise on this rapidly expanding market. Dr David Swann and Julia Meaton's keynote presentation describes project WAAA!, a 2015 UNICEF Wearable for Good Challenge finalist that seeks to reduce newborn mortality in low-resource settings through a low-cost wearable and APGAR education.
