In medical and healthcare applications, sensors cover a variety of aspects from routine to critical patient measurements and more.

There are several different sensing techniques that specifically address well being and health monitoring. The increasing importance of sensors is noted by the 2012 market research report’s (World Sensors Market in Healthcare Applications 2012-2017) projection that sensors in healthcare applications will reach $13.11 billion by 2017. This analysis includes the use of temperature, pressure, chemical, flow, level, position, image and biosensors.

Many sensors are increasingly connected wirelessly to remote monitoring equipment. To participate in this exciting and growing area, sensor manufacturers strive to provide sensors that address the measurement requirements of healthcare applications better than previous products and, in many cases, other industrial applications benefit from these improvements as well.
