RFID Wearables Remotely Monitor Seniors to Improve Care

Senior citizens comprise the world's fastest-growing population group. Within the next 50 years, their number is expected to double from the current 10% to 22% (700 million to 1.4 billion people). They present a growing challenge for healthcare, as seniors frequently suffer from chronic mental and physical diseases. They also require expensive medical care and ongoing monitoring. 90% of the nursing home beds are currently occupied by seniors and this number is expected to grow rapidly. However, the resources available for healthcare services are limited. This issue has triggered a requirement for technology-driven changes to current healthcare practices to provide better assistance. Such solutions help seniors to be more autonomous and self-reliant in taking care of their own health, which results in fewer hospital visits and better care management. [1] For seniors, falling can be a serious health risk. Each year, three million people are treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries and one out of four seniors has a serious fall, but there are options for preventing falls. One option is to use remote monitoring devices, such as radio frequency identification (RFID) wearables, to enable caregivers to be notified of falls. However, not all seniors feel comfortable using technology, because they don’t understand how to use it. Like those who came of age in the computer era move into their elder years, more seniors are gradually becoming more tech-savvy.

Eco-Friendly Inverter Controller Boards for Air Conditioners

The global air conditioning systems market size was USD 102.02 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 9.9% from 2019 to 2025. The rising number of auditoriums, hospitals, hotels, and multiplexes across the globe is anticipated to accelerate the market growth for air conditioning in the near future. Also, the increasing disposable incomes of individuals are expected to encourage the uptake of a variety of air conditioning systems. Rising inclination of consumers towards energy-efficient systems and the growing popularity of portable systems is expected to positively impact the air conditioning systems market growth as well.

2020 Global Growth of IoT Technology Implementation

Next year, the Internet of Things (IoT) market will grow to about $520B, more than twice the amount spent in 2017, which was $235B. IoT technology encompasses a set of advanced equipment, such as meters and sensors, along with network connectivity, smart devices, and software, that send data between machines and devices. This market is gaining

RFID Tags Specifically Designed for Gamma Sterilization

In today's world, we’re at odds with bacteria and viruses that can cause harm to both humans and animals. The gamma sterilization process uses Cobalt 60 radiation to kill microorganisms on a variety of different products. Processing with gamma irradiation yields quick turnaround time, easily penetrating packaging and product, and is ideal for many types of materials. The radioisotope cobalt 60 is the energy source for use in gamma irradiation sterilization with the irradiation process taking place in a specially designed cell. A key characteristic of gamma irradiation is high penetration capability. This enables moderately dense or sealed products to be processed with relative ease and facilitates the treatment of the palletized products.

High Demand for Wireless Gas Detection Sensors

By 2024, the wireless gas detection sensors market is projected to reach USD 1.4 billion from an estimated USD 1.0 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2019 to 2024. These sensors are used to measure the concentration of gases, such as nitrogen oxide. The development and implementation of new health and safety regulations across the globe, the increased adoption of gas sensors in HVAC systems and air quality monitors, and the rise in demand for gas sensors from critical industries are the major factors driving the growth of the gas sensors market.

Devices for New 5G Wireless Technology

In 2019, the telecom industry began shifting to 5G, which is based on the 5th generation of wireless communication standards. This technology uses digital cellular networks. Each covered service area is divided into small geographical areas, known as cells. Analog signals, representing images and sounds, are digitized in the telephone, converted by an analog to digital converter and transmitted as a stream

Global Electric Vehicle Market & Trends

By 2030, the global electric vehicle (EV) market size is projected to grow from an estimate of 3 million units to 27 million units at a CAGR of 21.1%. The increasing popularity of electric vehicles highlights significant efforts made jointly by various governments and automotive industry associations. Ambitious EV targets and policy support from governments have resulted in the lowering of EV costs. In addition, factors such as extended vehicle range and improvement in charging infrastructure have fueled the growth of the electric vehicle market globally.
