Study: 9% of consumer medical devices will rely on wireless component by 2016

While just 5% of consumer medical devices have a wireless component right now, that number will grow to 9% by 2016, according to a new study from IMS Research in the U.K. and highlighted by MobiHealthNews. By that time, IMS predicts most wireless-enabled consumer medical devices will use Bluetooth Smart technology, which consumes less power than classic Bluetooth. However, the report predicts that regulatory concerns will slow that transition. Story
