The healthcare and medical device industry is undergoing many changes due to growing global expenditures and increasing economic pressures. Segments such as wearable, portable healthcare and home healthcare options are growing more than other segments in the industry. Devices in these segments are becoming smaller, lighter and more efficient. These changes present unique challenges to designers.
