Paper-thin skin patch collects vitals: E-health made easier and more comfortable

Paper-thin skin patch collects vitals: E-health made easier and more comfortable | E-health | Scoop.it

The future of health care could be found in a tiny, paper-thin skin patch that collects vital information. The Bio-patch sensor developed by researchers at Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology is inexpensive, versatile and, best of all, comfortable to wear.

 

"On the chest it provides electrocardiography (ECG), on the skull it measures brainwaves (EEC), and on the forearm it can measure muscle response to stimulation from the nervous system (EMG)," he says. It also has a built-in sensor that constantly monitors body temperature.

 

With a wireless connection, the patient can analyse the readings in their smartphone, or send the data via internet to a healthcare professional for diagnosis.

 

The thinking behind Bio-patch is that health care can be moved out of the hospitals and into the home, Yang says. "Bio-patch is a step towards what is known as self-care, which is valuable especially for patients discharged after an operation, or for the elderly living unassisted," he says.

 

While the technology is versatile, interest has focused on the heart. "Heart diseases account for the majority of all deaths in the EU," he says.

A step towards self health beyond the gym...the technology that awaits us as we move into the future is incredible...was Star Trek that far off? The challenge no becomes how do we decide which ones are safe and effective.

Which Diseases Have the Most iPad apps? The Answers May Surprise You | New Solutions Factory

Which Diseases Have the Most iPad apps? The Answers May Surprise You | New Solutions Factory | E-health | Scoop.it

Allison Hermann, PhD's curator insight, May 2, 2013 4:52 PM

Jeff Greene discovered that there are prevalent diseases that have few mHealth iPad apps. For example, more than 29 million Americans have migraines and yet there are only 14 apps for migraines at the App Store. In contrast, there are 25.8 million Americans with diabetes and there are 143 apps for diabetes. In addition, he found it difficult to locate mHealth apps from among the 700,000+ apps when he used the App Store search function. The take-home message for app developers wanting to increase their chances of success - create a multichannel app to fill the disease app gap.

Urban E-health Project in Rio: First Findings Announced

Urban E-health Project in Rio: First Findings Announced | E-health | Scoop.it

We just announced the findings of our major Urban E-health Project, which is part of a Task Force looking at the potential impact of e-health technology in the world’s poorest urban areas.

Our study reveals that integration of e-health technology into the healthcare system of underserved urban areas, such as Santa Marta, can lead to:

Major economic savings for the health system as a wholeIncreased efficiency for healthcare workersBetter access to vital healthcare for patients who need it mostIncreased satisfaction among patients and health professionals

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, May 10, 2013 9:04 AM

The pilot project in the favela of Santa Marta in Rio de Janeiro sent health workers to the dwellings of people with chronic disease, with a backpack of equipment including the possibility of on-the-spot blood analysis.

Results are encouraging and there are signs that early care or easier access to it will help.

What should be done however, is to put more emphasis on nutrition and prevention. Most of the diseases of civilization can be prevented and sometimes they can be reversed with proper nutrition.

 

To be really effective, the e-health teams should ALSO be trained in simple nutritional remedies, to be recommended together with medical treatment. Then we could talk about real prevention taking hold, bettering health all over the place...
