Wearable tech full of potential for health care applications

Wearable tech full of potential for health care applications | Centerac Technologies | Scoop.it

It’s exactly what it sounds like. ‘Wearable technology’ involves sensors that are worn in something like a bracelet, that gather information and send the data to a computer via bluetooth.

 

This technology is now being developed for use across a range of health-related applications. New research suggests that it could be used to help prevent seizures in people living with epilepsy.

 

“We build sensors that allow people to measure information from the surface of their skin and this information changes with your activity, with your stress, with your sleep.”

 

MIT professor Rosalind Picard says she and her team discovered by accident that the technology can recognize 100 percent of large epileptic seizures through changes in the skin.

 

“We were quite surprised one day when we looked at the data and the biggest peak I’ve ever seen in my whole life was present. I thought the sensor was broken. And it turned out it was a seizure in a small boy,” says Picard.

 

“Since then we have done careful, controlled studies and we have 100 percent of grand mal seizures showing enormous responses on the skin sensor.”

Infographic: The Value of a STEM Education

Infographic: The Value of a STEM Education | Centerac Technologies | Scoop.it

"Knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math STEM_ canbe a key to a successful future. Here's why a STEM education matters and how you can inspire students to pursue STEM careers.

80 % of the fastest growing occupations in the United States depend on mastery of mathematics and scientific knowledge and skills, but students are not currently equipped to satisfy this growing need."

Engineering is the missing piece of STEM.  Rarely do you find a focus on STEM that capitalizes on engineering.

Medical Informatics: Apps, not data warehouses, are wave of future

Medical Informatics: Apps, not data warehouses, are wave of future | Centerac Technologies | Scoop.it

“We need apps to solve specific problems, not warehouses to store data,” he said. For analytics to live up to its true definition, he said it must drive decisions and actions. Apps, not warehouses, offer that potential. For an app to be effective, it must include many sources of data to layer onto an EHR--such as medications, labs, orders, problems, vital signs and allergies.

 

“Any EHR can document care, but the apps will make it smart,”
