Today so many devices of wearable health are produced and they are very useful in physical training and leisure. Increasing aged population arises the problem of life style related disease, ie, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, hyper lipidemia. Medical practitioners expect so much on wearable health devices in controlling these diseases. But most of them have no chance to mention what they want. We provided a small chance what they want if they can contribute the development of wearable health devices. 10 minutes of brain storming produced so much idea and after that we put them into affinity diagram.
