For those concerned about their blood pressure, OMRON VitalSight is introducing its everyday blood pressure management devices.
These gadgets send real-time data to a mobile app as well as to clinicians,providing remote guidance to the user.
Along with other global health tech leaders, South Korean healthcare startup M2S is at CES with its Best Of Innovation award winning product, VROR EYE Dr.
Using AI and VR techniques, people can analyze their eyesight at home as well as receive treatment.
The virtual space created by VR allows various tests and treatments to be done in a small space.

"The trend in digital health is developing in a way to provide medical services to the broader public in a more convenient way. It'll become miniaturized, personalized and more accessible for the public."

The digital healthcare solutions at CES 2021 show patients and doctors and healthcare worker to healthcare worker can be connected even during this pandemic,offering broader healthcare opportunities to the public.
