The yearly Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is always full of surprises, and 2023’s was no different. The Talk Shop team attended the event, and one sector that caught our attention was Healthtech. With a host of new products on full display, these innovations have a major opportunity to change how we live and work.

From wearable devices that can track our health metrics to AI-powered apps that offer personalized health advice, the health tech sector is becoming increasingly personal – and it looks set to revolutionize our lives in the years to come. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at some of the most exciting health tech products from CES 2023.

Xandar Kardian Inc., a Toronto-based company, showcased its pioneering Impulse UWB Radar Technology, a new type of radar technology that will change how we detect things in our environment. This new impulse UWB radar technology goes beyond sensing movement but continuously generates health data via vibration frequencies as we move, breathe and as our heart contracts and can detect early deterioration. It has the ability to detect other issues before they become a bigger problem. Xandar Kardian’s technology is also very precise, making it perfect for home health monitoring and other applications. Xandar Kardian is a Canadian company to watch.

When most people think of robots, they imagine something like the Terminator or C-3PO from Star Wars. However, robots are becoming increasingly more specialized, and one type of robot that was rolling around CES with its adorable face was an emotional support robot. The Buddy the Emotional Support Robot from XRHealth was designed to help people who need emotional support, such as children with autism. But what makes Buddy different from the rest? He’s equipped with sensors that can read facial expressions and emotions, allowing him to provide personalized emotional support. This is a much-needed tool, as autistic children often have difficulty communicating their feelings and needs. With Buddy by their side, kids can express themselves more freely and feel understood and supported.
