From wearable wellness tracker to IVF prediction tests, these CES 2016 health innovations demonstrate an increasing demand for technology that can help doctors and patients manage their health in a more accurate way.

Some of the most popular CES 2016 health innovations consist of wearable devices that provide a hassle-free way to track diagnostic information. Unlike older medical technology, wearables give doctors the flexibility to monitor a patient's health and well being from afar. Some standout examples include a sticker-like device that can help doctors diagnose neurodegenerative disorders and a UV-tracking patch that helps consumers track their sun exposure.

Beyond medical-grade wearbles, CES 2016 also exhibited a number of consumer-friendly healthcare devices. These innovative devices include food scanning apps that help consumers avoid unhealthy foods, pregnancy-tracking devices for couples trying to conceive and portable heart monitors that provide real-time blood pressure readings. Each of these devices can be used at home to help consumers take control of their own health.
