We are entering new waves of technology inspired by life style, healthcare, and quality of life. Demands on healthcare throughout the world are changing. The global demographic trend towards ageing populations, coupled with less active lifestyles and fast-food diets, is leading to higher probability and earlier onset of chronic conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This, in turn, is translating to a substantial increase in the proportion of resources required for long-term, continuous care and a growing burden on healthcare infrastructures.

This talk review will review some of the author’s work at attempts to provide sensor processing solutions. It will also include his work on a wireless body wave disposable ‘digital’ plaster, a novel ‘low powerless’ blood pressure monitor and a point-of-care genetic disposable chip, all created from technologies stemming from the semi-conductor industry. Business models and more technologies will be discussed.
