An ageing world population, increasing number of lifestyle-related diseases and rising healthcare cost has placed tremendous pressure on the global healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbated its dire and overstretched state. A shift in focus to early diagnosis and the prevention of diseases has fueled many innovations that empower more people to take charge of their own health. Of these, wearables and sensors have gained significant traction. With the availability of technologies such as miniaturisation and AI capabilities, wearables and health-tech sensors now have expanded functionalities for different health applications, including screening for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and more perse population segments.
