Re: " Wearable Intelligence"
I think the biggest problem with this solution is the patient remembering to put the glasses on.  It would be easier to make wearing them part of your daily routine than say remembering what time you took your last dose of an antibiotic but it will be interesting to see how this all works out.

Re: Therapy
@Alison, Thanks for sharing. I really like the idea of having a visual record to monitor progress and to gather data in terms of exploring a possible link between adhering to a physical therapy regimen and progress in condition/diagnosis.

Re: Diabetics
@Alison_Diana, it really is encouraging to see all of the programs targeting individuals with diabetes. I really appreciate how much awareness has been raised in terms of preventing and treating diabetes. We must continue to spread the word and share the resources.

Re: " Wearable Intelligence"
@SaneIt, I agree. I think it is a great idea, especially for forgetful patients or patients that are lacking their faculties for many varying reasons.

Re: Is Google really at the center of the healthcare wearables action?
@David Carr, That is good for the consumers. They will be able to shop around and will be able to compare prices.

I know there is a lot of excitement about Google Glass and apps that go with it, but there are a lot of other companies innovating in this area as well.
