Introduction: Wearable technologies are generally used in order to monitor physiological parameters and vital signs such as heart rate, respiratory rate, blood glucose, blood pressure and etc. With increasing rate of various diseases like heart attacks, cancer, neurological disorders and diabetes, the need for continuous and long-term monitoring of patients is felt more and wearable technologies can be used in health domain for continuous monitoring and instantaneously processing of patients’ information.
Methods: In this study, SID, Magiran, PubMed, ScienceDirect, IEEE and Springer databases were searched with the keyword of ”Usage of wearable sensors and technologies in health” in English sources and the Persian equivalent of “wearable technologies in health” as the keyword in Persian sources. All articles related to the application and features of wearable technologies in health were selected. Repetitive articles and those without full-text were excluded from the study.
Results: A total of 100 articles were found that after excluding repetitive and irrelevant articles, just 30 articles were studied. In this study, after examining the papers, general and medical applications of wearable technologies, physiological parameters that can be monitored as well as diseases that can be controlled by these technologies are completely explained.
Conclusion: Better understanding of wearable technologies application in health field has an undeniable impact on their advancement. Use of these systems plays an important role in improving the health of people.
Keywords: Application of wearable technologies, Monitoring of physiological parameters, Vital signs, Smart tools
