Today, the patient is no longer the passive object of a medical treatment performed on him by doctors, but a partner at eye level who takes responsibility for himself, makes decisions and actively shapes his own health. However, as medical laypersons they need support in several respects, both as patients and as healthy persons. Wearable, on-body or implanted devices can make significant contributions here, provide targeted and needs-oriented information, compensate for restrictions, for example due to disability and chronic diseases, and have a direct effect on the body and physiological processes as medical devices/medical technology.
But healthy living does not only affect older people. Adolescents must learn to take responsibility for their own health. This is challenging and becomes particularly difficult when psychological problems are added. On-body sensors can measure physiological parameters such as heart rate variability, respiratory rate or movement patterns and, based on these, bring elements of behavioral therapies into everyday life.
