10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it

This year IBM dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors.

 

Digital sensors of the touch, sight,hearing, taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by IBM Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.

 

Sensor innovation is in-part driving the Digital Health Revolution as digital health companies find ingenius ways to integrate them in to apps, devices and other peripherals. The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

 

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives.

designboom in collaboration with the LIEN FOUNDATION and
ACM FOUNDATION, and supported by the 
NATIONAL FUNERAL DIRECTORS ASSOCIATION (NFDA)

 

The LIEN FOUNDATION and ACM FOUNDATION 
present the DESIGN FOR DEATH international design competition to catalyze the international creative 
and design community to re-think and re-imagine deathcare* for the future.

 

DESIGN FOR DEATH will encourage creativity and establish leadership through the intersection of design, thanatology 
and deathcare to inspire future practical initiatives. It will challenge and change perceptions about the ways in which families honor, 
remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

 

 

This not-for-profit initiative is the first-ever, global competition of its kind.

Call for entries for the first competition begins on Wednesday, 6 February 2013

Rowan Norrie's curator insight, February 28, 2013 4:01 AM

Eminently sensible insight from Eric Topol, M.D., professor of genomics and author of The Creative Destruction of Medicine.

 

The suggestions are based on a theme of getting away from mass testing/treatment to looking at the patient as an individual, and basing treatment on what approach will best suit that person, depending on their condition and biology.

 

It also makes a case for overuse of expensive tests, suchs as CT scans. Not only do they cause distress through misdiagnose or finding other minor spots that need further testing, but overuse of irradiation is apparently linked to 2% of cancers in the US.

 

An interesting read!

MIT engineers have created genetic circuits in bacterial cells that not only perform logic functions, but also remember the results, which are encoded in the cell's DNA and passed on for dozens of generations.

evaporation of things | 13 & 14 March 2013, Edinburgh

evaporation of things | 13 & 14 March 2013, Edinburgh | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it

The symposium Evaporation of Things is intended to explore the increasingly digital interface to biological ‘things’. From the phylogenetic analysis of plants, to the data representation of the human genome project, studying the subject on a screen has replaced the study of the material artefact. For the general public, astronomy remains a question of looking at the stars in the night sky, whereas for astronomers the use of optical telescopes is a thing of the past – so the question emerges “where is the thing?”


Over two half-days we are gathering artists and designers as well as scientists and other scholars to share understandings and affordances offered by their ways of knowing living things through data. In addition to presentations and discussions we invite all the participants in the symposium to bring a material and/or an immaterial manifestation of a ‘thing’ to a Show & Tell Workshop.


The Evaporation of Things will be documented by bloggers Pat Kane and Ken MacLeod with transcriptions from presentations, images of artworks and documentation from the Show and Tell to be published in Ubiquity: The Journal for Pervasive Media, Intellect.

petabush's insight:

looks like a fascinating two days

Doctors will have to deal with a minority of 'super-engaged' patients who attempt to control their bodies through data gathering, analysis and visualization. Are they ready for it?

rob halkes's comment, January 25, 2013 8:39 AM
Personal communication styles have always been around. My hypothesis is that the higher the impact of the health condition and the more vulnerable therapy compliance is (e.g. in (breast) cancer, HIV), the more motivation for patients to tend to issues in coping with their conditions. So, let's not desire to 'connect' all patients, but start to try and learn. Culture and styles of doing care is a learning process..;-)

Now is the time of biology, technology and big data! Great overview to show how we are now able to measure billions of datapoints about ourselves, track, analyse and take action accordingly.

"The culture of biology is rapidly changing and the field of synthetic biology has the potential to generate a new industrial revolution.  It is perhaps the defining technology for the 21st century. If 20th-century biology was about taking living things apart to find out how they work; the current era will be defined by putting them back together, although not necessarily by following the traditional evolution guidelines.  Without an informed society however, fear of this unparalleled and sometimes troubling use and application of technology may obstruct its future."

petabush's insight:

intriguing look at present and future developments around materials with synthetic biology and self assembling environments and products. I would love to work with these themes for health applications.
