Abstract:

Digitalization in health is a new trend in the healthcare industry. New innovations are at their peak that assist health diagnosis, treatment and overall healthcare routine. Fit bands are one such tech-assisted healthcare management tool been accepted not only by health-conscious ones but also by others. The purpose of our study was to know the population's perception of the fit band technology, its utility, and the reason for acceptance or non-acceptance. With the use of demographic information of age, profession, income, gender, location and health status, we tried to find the out significance of fit band use and end up concluding that there is no effect of fit band acceptance on these parameters. Hence it is acceptable by all. Though untouched by large population yet. The responses were looked at using confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modelling. By use of TAM factors, we drew out conclusion by framing variables and relevant questions that address answers of reliability, motivation, privacy, trust, etc.
