MIT has invented the sticky, stretchy & Smart 'Band-Aid of the Future | Perspectives on Health & Nursing | Scoop.it

Researchers at MIT have designed what they're referring to as "the Band-Aid of the future" -- a sticky, stretchy hydrogel that includes temperature sensors, LED lights and drug delivery channels.

The dressing can release medicine in response to body temperature changes, and lights up ifmedicine is running low. Its stretchy form means it can be applied to flexible areas like elbows or knees, moving with the body and keeping electronics intact at the same time.

Challenges and Opportunities: Innovative Credentials in the Medical Education Space

Challenges and Opportunities: Innovative Credentials in the Medical Education Space | Perspectives on Health & Nursing | Scoop.it

Competency-based education has been gaining momentum across the American higher education landscape over the past five years, but in the medical education field competencies have been king since 2000. That said, some main campuses are still wary of the competency-based approach to credentialing and management tools, for the most part, are lagging behind in helping institutions to support these students. In this interview, Larry Gruppen discusses competency-based programming through the medical education lens, reflects on some of the reasons why he and his colleagues launched their Master’s of Professional Health Education program and discusses some of the challenges of managing this program in the current postsecondary climate.

Facebook reminders help teens control asthma

Facebook reminders help teens control asthma | Perspectives on Health & Nursing | Scoop.it

Once again, social media proves its mettle among young people with health issues. Preliminary results of a study of asthmatic teenagers at Boston’s Partners HealthCare found significant improvement in engagement and in symptom control when patients received reminders and encouragement from clinicians and peers via Facebook.

Dr. Joseph Kvedar, vice president of connected health at Partners HealthCare, presented these early findings at the mHealth + Telehealth World conference in Boston this week. Kvedar told MedCity News that Partners is working on publication of the study in a peer-reviewed journal.

Partners Connected Health, formerly known as the Center for Connected Health, teamed up with the Department of Pulmonology at Massachusetts General Hospital and the pediatric asthma group at Partners Community HealthCare to create a private Facebook group for asthma patients aged 14-17. Partners paired the “secret” group, only viewable by invited users and not listed in Facebook search results, with a password-protected website called Connect 2 My ACT, where study participants could take the Asthma Control Test (ACT), a survey intended to measure asthma control.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 20, 2015 2:00 PM

Move over wearables and embeddables, because the mobile wireless health revolution is well underway thanks to smart pill technology, also known as “ingestibles.” According to the report “Smart Pills Technologies Market (2012-2017),” the global smart pills market is expected to reach $965 million by the year 2017. The technology development is currently focused on two primary functions: wireless patient monitoring and diagnostic imaging.

Taking snapshots of our systems:   A non-invasive test can be used to remotely visualize the gastrointestinal tract and colon to detect polyps and identify the first signs of colorectal cancer.  Instead of having an invasive colonoscopy procedure. Given Imaging, an Israeli company, has made this possible. The company has developed a battery-powered camera pill that can take high-speed photos of the intestinal tract. The device then sends the images to a second device worn around the patient’s waist and then to a computer or tablet to be reviewed by a doctor.  If swallowing a camera makes you feel squeamish, you might be relieved to learn that it has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The PillCam COLON is intended for patients who have difficulties undergoing standard colonoscopies due to anatomy issues, previous surgery or various colon diseases.  

Disrupting medical monitoring:   Scientists and researchers are working on even more impressive applications of ingestibles. For example, Scripps Health is currently developing nano-sensors that can travel the bloodstream and send messages to a smartphone, alerting the user of signs of infection, an impending heart attack or other cardiovascular issues. It’s clear that these nano-sensors and other smart pill technologies could absolutely change the game when it comes to wireless health.


Expect to see more in this ingestible space, this is only get bigger and better.
