Best Buy Health, Biobeat partner on RPM wearables

Israeli healthtech startup Biobeat and Best Buy Health are partnering to integrate Biobeat’s wrist and chest monitors into Best Buy Health’s Current Health platform. Best Buy Health, which acquired Current in 2021, will use Biobeat’s wearables for remote patient monitoring (RPM) solutions. Biobeat’s devices monitor 13 health parameters continuously, with PPG-based sensors providing non-invasive, continuous vital sign measurements. Biobeat’s technology also offers cuffless RPM solutions and an AI-driven Early Warning Score system. This collaboration reflects the growing market for wearables with expanded health monitoring capabilities, including products from major consumer tech companies such as Apple and Google. Other innovative wearables in development include an infant pulse oximetry sock and an AI-powered patch for wound recovery.
