By March 8, 2023March 14th, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Northeastern University’s new system for understanding & addressing ethics of wearables in healthcare. This technology offers a robust framework that enables the integration of ethics into data and AI strategies, ensuring that sensitive user data is handled and used to make informed, real-world decisions through sophisticated algorithms.

This technology can be used for virtual physical therapy, orthopedic chronic disease assessment, virtual emergency visits, athlete performance enhancement, and injury prevention. This technology has great potential, with the global telerehabilitation market projected to grow from $3.32 billion in 2019 to an estimated $9.13 billion by 2027.

Northeastern University’s system for understanding & addressing ethics of wearables in healthcare is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.).
