DALLAS, June 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research from Parks Associates finds 57% of UK consumers report having a chronic condition and 39% of these patients own at least one connected health or wellness device. The firm also reports 52% of households with children at home having at least one of these devices.
“The stand-out segments who own connected health devices are households with children and households who recently had children,” said , Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “In both cases, ownership of connected health devices is well above 50%. Given that households with babies and children frequently need to interact with the healthcare system, this makes them good targets for virtual and video consultation services.”
The research highlights the growing adoption of connected health and personal emergency products and examines the consumers who own these devices. It provides insights on consumers’ connected lifestyles, including their interest in virtual services, smart home applications, and independent living solutions. The research also identifies the needs of seniors, caregivers, and consumers with chronic conditions and identifies the assistive and independent living technologies that would best meet their needs.
