      Connected Health

      Consumers increasingly use electronics to monitor their health and well-being, and doctors and hospitals rely more on connected devices to monitor patients. The industry now faces the challenges of changing consumer behavior and technology convergence towards “Connected Healthcare”. Consumers want their healthcare and wellness devices to function similar to the electronics they use in their everyday lives, like smartphones. With Covestro’s expertise in Medical and Electronics we are here to help…

      Covestro is working with designers to create concepts for trends affecting the healthcare industry. In this case, the future connectivity of drug delivery devices is being visualized in a number of ways. We are considering:

      Legacy drug delivery devices that will need to be connected (to Healthcare providers, pharmacies, etc. via the Internet of Things) in the near future.

      Brand new devices that will have built-in connectivity.

      New connected drug delivery devices with form factors that are different from the traditional “pen” shape. Each concept serves to inspire the future of connected drug delivery and help visualize how life-enhancing materials from Covestro can bring designers’ ideas to reality.
