“Smaller than a smartphone”, as the French company pegs it, the device can track body temperature via automatic temporal artery detection; its digital stethoscope can listen to the heart and lungs. With medical-grade ECG, it can also detect possible cardiovascular issues at any time as well as measure blood oxygen level”
From a touch-based live viewing experience for blind to a smart home that monitors pollution, noise, and smoke and a digital thermometer that also serves as an electrocardiogram, oximeter, and stethoscope — the CES 2024 was quite the event to witness some cool healthtech innovations.
These health-focused devices aim to help improve your well-being, fitness, and beauty. Using the power of artificial intelligence (AI), these show the potential to monitor your vital signs, enhance sleep quality, or stimulate the brain, among others.

Cherish Health’s cutting-edge fall-detection system developed in partnership with Alarm.com eliminates the need for traditional wearables.
The home safety device called Serenity can track up to two individuals, utilising advanced radar technology and AI, TechCrunch reported. Serenity can also monitor resting heart rate and respiration from a distance, without the need for any wearable device.
