With the advancement of ICT technology (particularly the popularization of cloud services), the increase in patients afflicted with lifestyle-related diseases due to lifestyle changes and the aging of the population, and changes in the societal environment such as the steep rise in medical costs, are bringing about profound changes in devices and services for the healthcare and medical field. These changes also affect thermometers, with such products becoming more compact and gaining the ability to measure continuously and connect to the cloud.
Murata’s products contribute to:
• The ability to create more compact products and exercise more design freedom thanks to the availability of compact general-purpose components (capacitors, inductors, etc.)
• The ability to easily create daily health monitoring products with network connectivity due to the availability of Bluetooth® Smart Modules, wireless communication modules supporting near-field communication (NFC), etc.
