Abstract: Indian population has potential threat of non-communicable diseases. The low-preventive health measure is a cause of major loss to the economy. Integration of the cloud platform with remote wearable sensors not only helps the health stakeholders to capture the patient vitals but also perform predictive analysis. Raising timely alarms through Internet of Medical Things has wide application in preventive care. It is surprising that despite of huge application benefits, the startup's in this domain lack the integration support due to challenges in license approvals from the Government levied new Medical Device Rules. This is an original paper and holds significance as all the available literature on Remote Connected Care Medical Wearable Technology is accumulated and studied. This paper has a detailed behavioural empirical study of the customer towards the device acceptance and the role played by demographic variables in same. The potential of the internet of things-based remote medical wearable's to be the future of sustainable healthcare model is captured from ASSOCHAM Report, Industry, IoT India Congress Report, Innovation Industries Conclaves, IEEE and various global researches in this domain.

Keywords: internet of medical things; medical wearable technology; acceptance; behavioural empirical study; sustainable healthcare model.
