THE LATEST INNOVATIONS IN FITNESS TECHNOLOGY ARE TAKING CENTER STAGE THIS WEEK AT THE 2018 CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW IN LAS VEGAS.

AND INDUSTRY EXPERTS SAY MANY OF THESE PRODUCTS HAVE ONE MAJOR THING IN COMMON_BIG DATA.

SOUNDBITE (English) Robin Raskin, Living in Digital Times

"They've always had data about you. It's a big issue, data privacy versus the conveniences in your life, but people are starting to see the benefits of giving up privacy."

DOZENS OF COMPANIES ARE UTILIZING DATA COLLECTED FROM CONSUMERS FOR EVERYTHING FROM HELPING PEOPLE GET BETTER SLEEP…

SOUNDBITE (English) Roy Raymann, Sleep Core Labs

"We have 300 million nights of data so we know a lot about sleep."

TO ASSISTING STROKE PATIENTS WITH REHABILITATION.

SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Kim, NEOFECT Rehabilitation Solutions

"You actually use the smart glove, once you put it on, all of the motions that you're making with it is recognized by the software. / It actually is measurable. So now instead of saying your husband is better, now you can say you're husband has been making improvement by 20 degrees."

WHILE SOME PRODUCTS MAY SEEM MORE FRIVOLOUS, SUCH AS AN INFRARED MASSAGE BED OR A SMART SCALE,

OTHER COMPANIES BILL THEIR PRODUCTS AS POTENTIALLY LIFESAVING.

UPSOUND (English) Jeff Ray, Omron:

"This is the first wearable blood pressure monitor in the world."

HEALTH CARE COMPANIES ARE TEAMING UP WITH THE TECH INDUSTRY TO DEVELOP MORE PERSONALIZED PRODUCTS.

SOUNDBITE (English) Marc Briggs, United Healthcare

"Dexcom makes a continuous glucose monitor and we're partnering with them in a program around some of our senior population where we're using some of their great technology along with the data that we have at United Health Care and working to have our members have better information about their glucose levels and their ability to manage their diabetes."

SOUNDBITE (English) Jill Gilbert, Digital Health Industry Expert:

"I call it hyper-personalization of health care or medicine. / There are meaningful developments that are coming out of this industry. There are also some fun gadgets and things that help us stay on track."

EXPERTS PREDICT COMBINING THE LATEST TECH WITH ARTICIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WILL HELP A HOST OF PEOPLE AND PATIENTS, FROM BABIES TO SENIORS.
