article imageTop innovations to track your health at CES 2018

By Karen Graham     Jan 10, 2018 in Technology
Health and fitness wearables are one of the hot subjects at this year's CES. The selection of innovative gadgets and apps is huge, and some of the most promising ones are innovating the health sector.
A number of well-known brands have made their mark this year at CES 2018 — like Johnson & Johnson, who made a surprising breakout in the 30-component Dow today, up 2.0 percent in more than twice its usual volume. The buy point is 144.45, while the 5.0 percent buy zone is capped at 151.67.
They also broke out at CES 2018, showcasing a host of cutting-edge technologies that address nearly every key aspect of well-being, from a contact lens designed to adapt to an individual's environment to a digital sleep coach that can help improve infant slumber.

BabyCenter
BabyCare's Parentype for new and expectant parents
We’re transforming healthcare from an industry focused on caring for the sick to one also inspired by keeping people well,” explains Sandi Peterson, Group Worldwide Chair, Johnson & Johnson.
BabyCenter has been a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies since 1997. This year, they have come out with Parentype — a digital quiz that helps new and expecting parents assess how they're doing on several measures of parental well-being.
“From years of research, we know that everyone handles being a parent differently, and what is easy for one parent might be difficult for another,” says Colleen Hancock, BabyCenter COO. “It’s our mission to help parents be healthy and confident. And by knowing what kind of parent they are, and helping them understand their strengths and overcome challenges, we can do that even better now.”

Neutrogena
Neutrogena's Skin360 mobile app
Neutrogena is part of the Johnson & Johnson conglomerate, which bought the independent company in 1994. Formed in 1930 in Los Angeles, California, the company's products are sold in over 70 countries worldwide. Neutrogena carries a wide range of products for the skin (face and body) and hair, including specific product lines for acne, anti-aging and sun protection.
Slip a SkinScanner, powered by Fitskin onto your iPhone and you will be prompted to take photos of your forehead, cheek and chin. The tool's lens, assisted by 12 high-powered lights, magnifies your skin up to 30 times to accurately assess the size and depth of fine lines and pores, while a sensor measures moisture levels.
You will end up with a unique Skin360 Score. Your Skin360 Score changes as your skin does, and you can track progress and improvement over time for healthier looking skin, inside and out.

Nokia
Nokia Sleep is a Wi-Fi enabled pad
Nokia is a large Finnish multinational communications, information technology, and consumer electronics company, founded in 1865, in 2016, Nokia employed approximately 101,000 people across over 100 countries, doing business in more than 130 countries.
One of the neat things Nokia has unveiled at CES 2018 is the Nokia Sleep - a Wi-Fi enabled pad that fits under your mattress to track sleep and provide users with information on length of sleep and light, deep and rapid-eye-movement phases, and any interruptions during the night, with the product even able to track snoring.
As is the case with many of the new gadgets today, the user of Nokia Sleep is presented with a "sleep score," to show how restorative their sleep was and how it can be improved. Nokia Sleep also comes with smart home control via the IFTTT home automation platform, meaning users can automatically control some of the factors which affect sleep such as lights and room temperature.

VIVOBAREFOOT have teamed up with wearable smart technology company Sensoria to debut the first internet-connected barefoot shoe at this year's CES event.
VIVOBAREFOOT
It has been described in New York Magazine "as close to going barefoot in the city as you can get." The most prominent shoe using this technology is their Evo running shoe.
This year, at CES 2018, Vivobarefoot has teamed up with wearable smart technology company Sensoria to debut the first internet-connected barefoot shoe. What's intriguing about Vivobarefoot's Smart Shoe is that it features an ultra-thin sole to allow the foot to move naturally, along with a layer of fabric thin pressure sensors from Sensoria which records this natural movement as you run.
Sensoria's Core hardware in the shoe then streams it to the Sensoria app on the user's mobile phone. For serious runners, the sensors will record metrics that include speed, pace, cadence, foot landing technique, and asymmetry and toe engagement, which can be used to help monitor natural running technique and reduce the risk of injury.
