Quantified health was a key theme of CES 2024, with companies showcasing the future of tech-enabled disease prevention.
Monitoring living spaces, metabolic health startup Ultrahuman unveiled Home, an environmental health platform assessing temperature, humidity, light exposure, and air quality.
Wearable labs. Medical-grade devices want to diagnose disease. Pison Ready measures cognitive agility, EVOLVE MVMT’s ankle strap offers gait training, and Mojawa’s hearables translate biometrics into real-time training cues.
The smart ring wars are intensifying, with Movano, Lotus, Amazfit, and YogiFi chasing Oura.
Consumer-friendly CGM. Glucose monitoring is expanding beyond diabetes patients.
Manufacturers Abbott and Dexcom both released mini insulin pump-compatible CGMs. Abbott also launched its consumer Lingo device in the UK, while Dexcom readies Stelo, its metabolic health-focused series.
Sidestepping CGMs, January AI’s new app predicts glucose levels from food photos.
Takeaway: For better or worse, personal well-being—once left to intuition—now has a number value. But unless these innovations can collectively move the needle on public health, it’s inundation, not optimization.
