Abstract

There is a growing recognition in orthopedics of the use and benefit of SMART technology. SMART stands for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Re¬porting Technology. Recent clinical research [1- 3] has identified the value and benefits of wearable technology for various popula¬tions raising the question as to whether there may be beneficial use with individuals in treatment for orthopedic related conditions. Wear¬able SMART technology employs digital technologies to collect health data from individuals in one location, such as a patient’s home, and electronically transmit the information to health¬care providers in a different location for assessment, monitoring and compliance [4]. The orthopedic devices industry continues to be a promising area in the global medical technology area, and is expected to rank third in sales after cardiology and in-vitro diagnostics in the next decade. The growing number of orthopedic patients are aging and can benefit from SMART technology available for both their orthopedic injury as well as the collateral issues the aging population faces when adjusting to an orthopedic condition.
