Sports and medical devices seem so different that they should be tracked in different industries. One is mission critical (life saving), regulated, and the other is a consumer recreational device like an iPod or DiskMan. I'd guess that the really exciting advances will in in monitoring, regulating (automatic insulin pumps), and prosthetic assistance devices (mobility, vision, hearing).
