The Best Medical Technologies of 2015 | medGadget | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

As we look back on the medtech developments of 2015 there’s definitely a sense that we’re living through revolutionary times. Nearly every day exciting and fascinating technologies are being unveiled by small and large companies, universities, and even tiny independent groups. Empowered by high-powered computers, 3D printers, and other technologies, researchers, scientists, and engineers are coming up with novel solutions to age-old medical problems. Everything from treating gunshot wounds to how fetuses inside the womb are monitored is going through change thanks to technologies developed by thousands of independent minds around the world.

 

And so we’d like to take you on a quick tour of amazing, inspiring, and long hoped for medical capabilities that have graced these pages over the last year.

Why So Many Doctors Are Advising Startups

Why So Many Doctors Are Advising Startups | The HealthTech | Scoop.it
CHRISTINA FARR 04.28.16 6:06 AM
Ethan Weiss, a cardiologist at UC San Francisco, spends long hours at the hospital treating patients. But between shifts, he takes calls with health-technology entrepreneurs to offer them advice and feedback.

As Weiss explains, it's not about the money. He does the majority of this advisory work for free or in exchange for a tiny chunk of equity. It's also not about prestige: He doesn't speak publicly about the startups he's consulting with. So why does he bother?

Un joven vasco ha ideado un microchip que evitaría la lesión más temida por todos los futbolistas.

Un joven vasco ha ideado un microchip que evitaría la lesión más temida por todos los futbolistas. | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

La idea consiste en un chip y un sensor que se introducirían en el ligamento y en el vasto interno del cuádriceps. Ambos dispositivos pueden calcular el grado de torsión entre la tibia y el fémur y, si supera los 35 grados, reaccionar enviando una pequeña descarga al cuádriceps. Esto provocaría “que el usuario caiga al suelo con dolor y se evitará la rotura del ligamento“, nos cuenta Beñat Insunza, el estudiante vasco que, junto a un compañero, presentó la idea como proyecto de fin de curso en 2º de Bachillerato.

Llega LIFI, el wifi a velocidad de la luz

Llega LIFI, el wifi a velocidad de la luz | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

Lifi. Ese es el invento llamado a revolucionar la conexión a internet y la transmisión de datos. Utilizando únicamente la iluminación, se espera que se puedan alcanzar velocidades medias de diez gigabytes por segundo. Es decir, que a pleno rendimiento podrías descargarte más de 30 películas en alta definición en un tan solo un minuto. El lifi fue parido en 2011. El padre de la idea fue Harald Haas, un investigador de la Universidad de Edimburgo (Escocia). «Cualquier fuente de iluminación podrá convertirse en un punto de acceso a internet solo con un microchip», asevera Haas.

Will Doctors Soon Be Prescribing Video Games For Mental Health? | netnebraska.org

Will Doctors Soon Be Prescribing Video Games For Mental Health? | netnebraska.org | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

Neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley is interested in both. In his lab at the University of California, San Francisco, he's working on something much more complicated than a brain exercise. It's a fully immersive video game focused on multitasking. While you guide a horse through the Aztec desert, you have to tap green carrots that flash at the top of the screen, but not tap the yellow carrots or the radishes. Gazzaley thinks this kind of challenge will have a positive effect on executive brain function.

 

The notion, he says, is "if we created this — what we call a high interference environment, with multitasking going on and lots of distraction ... if we put pressure in that environment, we would see benefits in other aspects of cognitive control."

 

Think of how a race car works. To get around the track, you've got the accelerator, the gearshift and the steering wheel. If one of them isn't working right, you'll never win the race.

 

It's like that with the brain, Gazzaley says. The networks that control the three classes of cognitive ability — working memory, attention and goal management — all overlap.

"If you have a problem with any of them, it's going to propagate," he says. "You'll have a problem with memory; you'll have a problem with school or work or relationships or safety in driving."

 

On the flip side, Gazzaley believes, if you can improve one of those cognitive skills, you might be able to improve all of them.

"If you can apply selective pressure to one of them, using the video game mechanics, you will be able to see benefits across domains," he says.

Don’t Sleep On New Data Privacy Regulations

Don’t Sleep On New Data Privacy Regulations | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

Chalk it up to the Snowden Effect.

Although it has been nearly three years since Edward Snowden turned the world on its head by releasing a trove of highly sensitive documents, the ripples of his decision are still being felt broadly.

 

To that end, the European Union recently finalized the text of what looks to be the world’s single most significant — and severe — data privacy law to date.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as it has come to be known, has generatedquite a bit of buzz on both sides of the pond. Long-heralded and oft-debated in Europe, the framework finally materialized this past fall.

 

The regulation, which aims to better protect the privacy of personal data for EU citizens, is being passed over the vociferous objection of some of the world’s biggest technology companies. The case was by no means black and white, and both sides had credible arguments — which are sure to be repeated worldwide as governments from Beijing to Brasilia consider similar legislation.

Aplicaciones para contribuir a la investigación médica desde tu móvil. Noticias de Tecnología

Como muchas personas, seguramente antes de dormir estás con tu móvil navegando por internet, leyendo alguna noticia o revisando redes sociales. El uso que le damos a este aparato es diferente en cada caso, pero cuando lo conectamos a la toma eléctrica y lo dejamos en la mesilla antes de dormir no hace nada durante horas, cuando podría estar ayudando a curar la malaria.

 

El móvil puede ser mucho más que un aparato que te conecta a internet y que te ayuda en tu día a día. Gracias a la potencia de sus procesadores y a la cantidad de sensores de todo tipo que incluyen, estos dispositivos se pueden convertir en herramientas para la investigación científica y médica.

Did the digitization of healthcare leave the human element behind? | MobiHealthNews

Did the digitization of healthcare leave the human element behind? | MobiHealthNews | The HealthTech | Scoop.it

Dr. Robert Wachter, a physician and author who spoke this week at the Health 2.0 conference in Santa Clara, California, told the story of an early adopting private practice that bought a state of the art ambulatory EHR system 10 years ago. The head of the practice told Wachter that on the day the system was deployed “the staff came to work and nobody knew how to do their jobs”.

 

Wachter sees this anecdote as symptomatic of a fundamental shortcoming in the way that the healthcare industry has thus far engaged with digital technology.

While Oculus, Sony and Valve are busy working on virtual reality (VR), Microsoft is focusing on something else entirely: augmented reality (AR). With the HoloLens headset, you can visualize and manipulate digital images overlaid on the physical world. One of its most impressive showings to date was at E3 in Los Angeles this year, where Microsoft demoed an AR version of Minecraft.
