From Sleep-Enhancing Senors to Heart-Tracking Arm Bands

 - Jan 16, 2017
In addition to catering to the many consumers who are trying to better their physical and mental well-being as a part of their New Year's resolutions, these CES health devices aim to improve life for athletes, those recovering from accidents and people living with disabilities.

The affordable prosthetic arms made by BrainRobotics are a great example of the latter. Bicheng Han, a Harvard Ph.D. and the founder of the brand, led the design team, which had the goal of ensuring as many people as possible would have access to its prosthetic arms. In addition to being more affordable, BrainRobotics' devices allow users to perform different gestures and grab objects with their adaptive smart grip technology.

Also featured in this grouping of CES health devices are the Hyundai exoskeletons, which are worn on the body to maximize its user's stability. The brand designed three different versions of the devices, with each made to improve its user's range of mobility in a specialized way.
