Top 100 Health Trends in 2020

From Social Distancing Dresses to Walk-Through Sanitizers

— January 23, 2021 — Lifestyle
The 2020 health trends include an array of products that were created both before the COVID-19 pandemic, and in response to it—with everything from concept designs that would enable users to safely attend a concert, to apps that ensure they have sufficiently washed their hands included.

To reduce the amount of waste caused by the increased need for PPE among the general population, Bilio devised a protective face covering that uses a zero-waste knitting process. The unique manufacturing process allows Bilio to make its masks from a single piece of material, which incorporates different components.

As many have likely become hyperaware of how often they touch their face, the 'Immutouch' wearable was created to help users limit the spread of germs by keeping them aware of their personal habits. When it senses that the user is about to touch their face, it will send an alert.

For more health trends in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2021 Trend Report.
