Connected health

Let Nordic's expertise help you deliver the health tech your customers rely upon

Reliability, security, accuracy, ease-of-use and long-life battery operation are all performance attributes health and wellness users need. From hospitals to their patients to the elderly living independently at home to elite athletes.
Because Nordic owns its entire supply chain – from software to ultra-low power SoC and SiP hardware, cloud to development tools – we are uniquely positioned to deliver the above reliability and performance attributes to your end product.
No matter what kind of medical or fitness application you are developing – from the simplest consumer activity trackers through smart toothbrushes and drug delivery devices up to advanced 24x7 hospital medical monitors – Nordic Semiconductor has the perfect low power wireless connectivity solution for your needs.
That includes Bluetooth LE, low power Wi-Fi, and cellular IoT (both LTE-M and NB-IoT). The latest DECT NR+ specification also holds huge potential benefits – both technologically and commercially – for massive IoT healthcare installations at very large hospitals sites, for example.

AI in healthcare

As the global population ages, and chronic diseases continue to rise, wireless technology has a critical role to play in delivering better and more affordable healthcare outcomes. Few sectors need the IoT to empower them to deliver 10x more with 10x less than healthcare.
And this is why healthcare is likely to be one of the biggest adopters of AI and machine learning (ML).
Nordic is an emerging leader in AI and ML for wireless IoT connectivity with a suite of ultra-low power SoCs and SiPs that are designed to meet the enhanced computational demands of delivering AI and ML on battery-power at the edge.
