Wearable products, from consumer electronics to medical devices, are rapidly penetrating into an industry that will impact our daily lives from consumer electronics to medical devices, leading us to smarter ways of living. The ability to “wear” mobile products, that have been traditionally “carried”, means we need to give even more consideration to the potential safety issues of these wearable products than we would to the traditional products. Designers and manufacturers of wearable products need to understand the potential risks of the wearable technology and conduct comprehensive testing and performance verification which can help your wearable products stand out from the crowd.

Manufacturers who want to access the global market are required to have extensive knowledge of the global requirements and regulations and obtain certifications to enter their target markets.
