Wearable Technology Will See Growth in the Medical Field

The top venture capitalists at the digital SXSW conference in Austin, Texas believe wearable technology will see most of its growth in the medical field.

Investors talked excitedly about devices that warned of impending seizures or technology that measures brain trauma -- even a product that monitors an aging parent has great potential.
