Cette tendance de fond arrive à point nommé alors qu'un nombre croissant d'individus souhaite adopter un mode de vie plus sain. Aux Etats-Unis, ce secteur en pleine expansion est évalué à 4 milliards d'euros. Il serait aussi important en Europe. La multiplication de ces accessoires high-tech sert à la fois de motivation, on peut constater ses progrès sur d'élégantes courbes graphiques par exemple, et de garde-fou pour éviter les excès. "Plus les gens peuvent se surveiller, mieux c'est, souligne le professeur Hervé Douard, cardiologue au CHU de Bordeaux (lire l'interview intégrale).

By 2017: 170M wearable wireless health and fitness devices In five years the number of wearable wireless health and fitness devices will hit 169.5 million, according to a report from ABI Research. That’s up from almost 21 million such devices last year. By 2017 the number of sports and fitness focused wearable wireless devices will still outnumber more health-focused ones, but not by much. ABI expects about 90 million wearable fitness devices to be in the market five years from now, which leaves about 80 million health-focused ones. The research firm partially attributes the predicted rise in the number of wearable fitness devices to the increasing number of mobile handset vendors, consumer electronics companies, and online service providers who have joined the market in recent months.

Your Body Is an API: 9 Gadgets for Tracking Health and Fitness | Gadget Lab The "quantified self": It's a lifestyle philosophy that says tracking one's own personal data -- calories burned, hours slept, miles run -- is the path to self-realization. All this data-tracking requires gadgets, and many innovative specimens were on display at CES 2012 last month.

Seth's Blog » quantified self movement Seth's Blog » quantified self movement Here is an excellent introduction to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for depression, centering on a Stanford psychiatrist named David Burns. I was especially interested in this: [Burns] currently draws from at least 15 schools of therapy, calling his methodology TEAM—for testing, empathy, agenda setting and methods. . . . Testing means requiring that patients complete a short mood survey before and after each therapy session.
Nike+ FuelBand : le bracelet pour calculer son activité physique Nike+ FuelBand : le bracelet pour calculer son activité physique Nike vient de présenter son nouveau bracelet nommé Nike+ FuelBand. Il s’agit d’un bracelet équipé d’un écran à LED grâce auquel l’utilisateur peut garder une trace de son activité physique journalière, et se fixer des objectifs à remplir. Le principe est donc simple : le bracelet est appairé en Bluetooth à un iPhone ou un iPod disposant de l’application Nike+, dans laquelle l’utilisateur entre ses objectifs, qui se présente sous la forme d’un certain nombre de points. Le bracelet est alors capable de calculer les mouvements de l’utilisateur, le nombre de pas ou encore les calories brulées, et peut ensuite les convertir en points pour prévenir que l’objectif quotidien a été atteint.
Take a moment to imagine what it would be like to live robustly to the ripe old age of 100 or more. You wouldn't die of any particular illness, and you wouldn't gradually waste away under the spell of some awful, enfeebling disease that began years or decades earlier. It may sound far-fetched, but it is possible to live a long, disease-free life. Most of the conditions that kill us, including cancer and heart disease, could be prevented or delayed by a new way of looking at and treating health. The end of illness is near.

The Quantified Self is, yes, a Movement. QS Meetups pop up everywhere in the world. There are already 45 Meetups worldwide, (22 in the US, 12 in Europe, then Tokyo, Beirut, Sydney, Rio,…). Yet QS is still very hard to explain to non-initiates. Problem is, “Quantified Self” is a vastly misleading label; by no way is it a description of the movement’s true meaning. I will hereunder expose 4 hidden aspects of what the Movement is really about. Blog — 4 Unknown Aspects of the Quantified Self Movement

As Smartphones Get Smarter, You May Get Healthier: How mHealth Can Bring Cheaper Health Care To All Photo by Dan Saelinger The average auto refractor--that clunky-looking device eye doctors use to pinpoint your prescription--weighs about 40 pounds, costs $10,000, and is virtually impossible to find in a rural village in the developing world. As a result, some half a billion people are living with vision problems, which make it tough to read and work.
I help build open source software tools that patients can use to have greater control and influence over their own healthcare (like the Direct Project and Your Doctors Advice). As as result, I’ve become quite familiar with other tools that do the same sorts of things. There is a community of patients who are deeply interested in the ways in which they can become more engaged and how they can specifically use technology to achieve this. This community calls themselves epatients. The epatient community asked me to write a short collection of resources for “becoming an epatient.” Epatients: The hackers of the healthcare world
