Latest Health Technology at CES 2020


  • MobileHelp Touch

    This updated Touch Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) builds upon the existing MobileHelp system by adding more interactive features. The core function remains the same, to inform emergency operators of an individual's location once they have pressed the emergency button (the operator then assesses the situation and contacts a neighbor, family member or emergency services based on need). In addition, the Touch system now includes the option to add reminders, a function for easy-to-use SMS and e-mailing, brain-stimulus games and activity tracking. The Company is also making a version that features MobileVitals, which allows patients to track vital signs using wireless health monitoring devices and send the data to their physician.

  • Willow Generation 3

    Willow claims that the third iteration of their breast pump is the first all-in-one, in-bra, quiet wearable pump. Moms using the device can pump directly into both a spill-proof milk bag and a reusable container. The Company also states that in testing, experienced Willow users who pumped ≥20 times and used Generation 3, pumped 20% more milk than with prior iterations. An additional 21mm sized flange is being added to the current size assortment, which is also compatible with Generation 2. Generation 3 will be available this Spring.

  • Colgate Plaqless Pro

    This electronic toothbrush uses different colored lights to inform the user which areas they should brush and when they can move on. The brush also connects via Bluetooth to the users phone, giving them a real-time view of their brushing. When finished, the user can see where they brushed and if a brushed area is truly clean. The Company claims the brush does this by detecting biofilm buildup on teeth. The Colgate Plaqless Pro won the CES award for Best of Innovation for Health and Beauty.

  • Ebb Sleeplessness Device

    This wearable device cools the forehead during sleep using a cooling algorithm that maintains an optimal temperature range during the night. The device was conceived by Ebb Therapeutics founder and CMO, Dr Eric Nofzinger. While Director of the Sleep Neuroimaging Research Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Dr Nofzinger discovered that when the forehead is cooled, brain activity decreases and the mind can relax.

  • Olive Smart Ear

    This hearing aid does not require a fitting; the user instead completes a 5 minute hearing test on their smartphone which customizes it to the user's own hearing. The Company has placed design at the core, stating that they want to “remove the stigma associated with impaired hearing with well-designed, functional, affordable wearables.”

  • Mateo Smart Bathroom Mat

    The Mateo bath mat uses artificial intelligence technology to provide users with a range of data, which the Company says includes weight, muscle, bone and fat mass, hydration, pressure footprint, balance and posture. The cover is interchangeable and can recognize each registered user of the mat through its 7000 dot-pressure mapping. Users can view their metrics and data via a phone app or a connected mirror.

  • Morari Medical Premature Ejaculation Treatment

    Morari Medical announced that they are developing a wearable solution to treat premature ejaculation. A finished product is due to be released in 2021. Until then, the Company has chosen CES 2020 to share an early stage prototype. The wearable uses neuromodulation to impact the communication between the brain and ejaculatory nerves. Morari Medical will be conducting a study to test the product in the first quarter of 2020.

  • OMRON HeartGuide and Complete

    OMRON is exhibiting 2 devices at this year’s CES. HeartGuide has the look and feel of a regular watch, but its sole purpose is to monitor the wearer’s blood pressure. HeartGuide is paired with the accompanying HeartAdvisor app. Complete is an at-home blood pressure monitor with EKG capability. The device uses an algorithm devised by AlivCor to improve detection of the possibility of atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, and tachycardia.

  • InBody 970

    The InBody 970 analyzes abdominal fat and total body water. The device is paired with a handheld abdominal fat assessment tool called the Yscope, which assesses waist circumference size, subcutaneous fat, and visceral fat. InBody claims that the depth of abdominal fat analysis is comparable to that of a CT scan. "Medical practitioners can now use the InBody 970 to measure and track important health indicators, like visceral fat, for real-time data that can improve treatment plans,” said Harry Yun, CEO of InBody USA. The InBody 970 was named a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honoree for design and engineering. The InBody 970 and Yscope is expected to be available in late 2020.

  • Whisk

    Whisk is a food artificial intelligence platform that helps tailor meals to specific diets. It lives on a person's refrigerator; the user enters their food preferences and location and Whisk provides recipe recommendations based on factors such as dietary restrictions and what ingredients are in season. When used in combination with the Samsung Family Hub with the ViewInside camera (Samsung NEXT acquired Whisk last year), the contents of the refrigerator are analyzed using AI-image recognition, after which the refrigerator recommends recipes that incorporate the available ingredients. Through their technology, the Company hopes to reduce food waste.

  • Cynergi Health VR in Detox

    Cynergi Health paired with Kyle ER & Hospital, in Kyle, TX, to use virtual reality in tandem with a traditional medication-assisted detox program to help patients with substance abuse disorders. The virtual reality transports users into a soothing environment and also gives prompts, such as ‘inhale for 3 seconds’, to help calm the patient. “So far, the combination has been successful in helping our patients,” said Harbir Singh, MD, MBA, FACEP, and CEO of Kyle ER & Hospital.

  • CareOS Poseidon Mirror

    This interactive bathroom mirror has facial recognition that keeps track of each user’s hygiene and a set of visual tests allow the user to keep track of changes in their vision. For children, there is hygiene gamification for washing and brushing teeth. The mirror has dual band Wifi 2.4 and 5GHz, bluetooth, and has the option of full HD of 4K display.
