Top 100 Tech Ideas in September

From Predictive Social Media Aids to Artistic 4K Televisions

— September 27, 2017 — Tech
As the September 2017 tech trends highlight, gadgets are helping to improve the health and wellbeing of consumers in many different ways. Whether it is helping them make healthy food choices or reliving asthma symptoms so that they can breathe a little easier, it is clear that technology is improving lives in many ways.

One way in which technology is improving the health of consumers is by easing the symptoms of long-term conditions. For instance, Sonova's new custom hearing aid feature a discrete and high-quality design that makes them ideal for those with hearing loss. Similarly, the Aer Asthma Management System features smart puffers that provide users with extra information about the environment.

However, the September 2017 tech trends reveal that not all healthcare gadgets are designed to treat major illnesses. Indeed, many of these new devices simply help consumers make healthier choices in their day-to-day lives. One such example is the Fitbit Aria 2 Smart Scale, which syncs with health wearables to help consumers stay on top of their fitness goals.
