Technology has impacted human life in many ways. Application of the latest technology into medical science has opened new doors in healthcare. The top 5 medical technologies with the potential to revolutionize human life include:
1. 3D printing
3Dprinting has become one of the latest technologies to have extensive application in medical science and healthcare. Currently, the technology is used in 95% of sophisticated hearing aids, high-quality teeth-straightening braces and also in prosthetics. The technology is currently being studied and researched for organ printing, and if it succeeds patients will not have to suffer and wait for organ donation by a donor.
2. Magnetic Levitation
Magnetic levitation can be used for growing artificial tissues. It has been observed in research that nano-magnets can impact the growth of tissues; resulting in synthetically grown organ tissues. It even supports 3D growth pattern that can be actually used for growing human body parts synthetically from human cells. This technology, if established can actually revolutionize the present human organ transplantation scenario.
3. Melanoma optical scanner
Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but all the moles, even the ones looking dangerous, are not always melanoma. An invasive surgical biopsy was the only way to confirm that a mole is not a melanoma, even until a few years back. However, with the MelaFind optical scanner the situation has now changed drastically, because this handheld, FDA approved tool is capable to perform multispectral analysis of tissue morphology enabling doctors to make a call if a biopsy is even needed.
4. Transdermal biosensor
Diabetes is quickly becoming one of the widely spread diseases across the world. The most painful part about diabetes care is the regular pricking to collect blood and taste the sugar level. New technology is on its way that will replace the pricking with a patch. The transdermal biosensor device will analyze blood through the cells of the skin, without drawing blood.
5. Neuro Modulation stimulator
Brain trauma or injury can leave a man suffering for the whole of his life. The portable NeuroModulation Stimulator or in short PoNS is capable to stimulate particular nerve regions on the tongue boosting the brain to repair the damaged nerves. PoNS can be used to repair the brain from different conditions starting from alcoholism to Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
