Not only humanoid robots like Ameca were present at the CES 2022, because others also shone technological developments such as biowarables, completely focused on taking care of the health of its users in a comprehensive way to prevent different diseases.
During the technology fair, Abbott, responsible company, announced that it is working on the development of a new new category of biowearable consumer devices called Lingo, which is being designed to track key signals in the body, such as glucose, ketones, and lactate, to help people better understand their overall health and take action.
“Technology gives us the power to digitize, decentralize and democratize healthcare, create a shared language between you and your doctor, and put more control of your health in your hands, “said Robert B. Ford, president of the company.
These devices are designed to translate body language into actionable data, he explained, to help users track and measure their overall health and well-being. “The sensor technology is being designed to track key signals in the body like glucose, ketones and lactate, and it could also one day be used to track alcohol levels.”
They claim that this will allow people to have “A window in your body”, and access medical science at any time to know what the body says and needs at that moment, allowing to proactively manage health.
The company also noted that it is designing Lingo to measure other biomarkers beyond glucose in the future. “A ketone device is being developed to continuously track ketones, see how quickly you are entering ketosis, and understand exactly what is keeping you there by providing information on diet and weight loss.”
In addition to this, they are developing a biodegradable lactate product to track the continuous accumulation of the same during exercise, which can be used as an indicator of sports performance.
To the presentation of the development of the biowearable, joined by Tyrone Morris, a heart failure patient who was given six months to live, who shared his story of beating the odds with the help of three separate Abbott devices: HeartMate 3, CardioMEMS, and an implantable defibrillator. Today, Morris owns a food truck and barbecue catering business in Humble, Texas, where he specializes in low-sodium recipes.
