You stop… and with a flick of a finger, you instantly notify emergency responders of your situation and your location. At the same time, the notification alerts your doctor of the incident and sends your vital statistics. What enables all of this information to be gathered and transported to the right place is the combination of sensors and connectivity provided by the devices that make up the wearable Internet of Things.

Patients, too, demand a greater focus on wellness and preventive services. With the Internet at their fingertips, patients now feel a greater sense of empowerment and choice, and are driving the “consumerization of healthcare.” Today’s savvy patients seek providers who can turn the litany of available patient data into actionable, personalized insights, and help enable wellness outside the doctor’s office.

5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearable Devices

whitePaper | July 22, 2018

There is significant interest in new applications of wireless technology with particular focus on Fifth Generation (5G) mobile technology; the Internet of Things (IoT), also known as machine-to-machine (M2M) communications; and wearable devices. The GSMA has produced this publication to address questions related to exposure to radio frequency (RF) signals used by these networks and devices. Wireless networks and devices exchange information (eg, voice or data) via RF signals – a form of electromagnetic energy, also called electromagnetic fields (EMFs). RF signals are part of everyday life, emitted both by natural sources like the sun and the Earth, and by artificial sources such as: wireless networks, TV and broadcast radio.
