Advancements in medical technology allowed physicians to diagnose and treat their patients better. Regular advances in pharmaceuticals and the medical field have saved millions of lives and the overall quality of life continues to improve over time. As technology continues to improve, we can’t tell what technologies are going to happen in the coming years. Here are some of the new technologies in the medical field.
Inhaler is the main medical device option for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. If taken correctly, it will be effective for 90% of patients. As per the research, only 50% of patients have their condition under control and others don’t use inhalers properly. It can deliver a spray of these medicines straightly to your lungs through a mouthpiece.
To help asthma patients to control their condition better, smart inhalers with Bluetooth have been developed. A small device is attached to the inhaler that can record the date and time of each dose and can check whether it was correctly administered or not and this data is sent to the patients’ smart phones so they can keep track and control their condition.
Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform complicated procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than conventional techniques. During robotic surgery, surgeons can perform complex procedures easier.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery
- Less complications
- Less blood loss
- Faster recovery
- Less notable scars
Wireless brain sensors
Wireless brain sensors are mostly used for patients with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, sleep disorders, traumatic brain injury, and other brain-related conditions.
These sensors help in checking the neurological variances and help to improve subjective functionalities. These brain sensors will help specialists in determining the temperature and weight inside the brain.
3-D printers are one of the best technologies in the medical field. These can be used to create joints and implants used during surgery. 3-D-printed prosthetics are frequently becoming popular as they can create both long-lasting and soluble items.
Bioprinting is the latest medical technology that can take 3D printing to the next level. It can able to regenerate skin cells for skin burn victims and also given way to more interesting possibilities. Scientist has been able to produce blood vessels, pancreas, and even synthetic ovaries. These artificial organs then grow inside the patient’s body and can save millions of patients.
