Bluetooth technology firms such as Intel and Philips is about to invent a blood pressure monitor that will have a wireless link facility to a PC or Cell phone. The Bluetooth SIG is planning to go for health-related applications for the consumer communications technology with this development. Moreover, IBM, Intel, Motorola, Nonin Medical, Philips Electronics and Welch Allyn, all set to make a Bluetooth Medical Device Profile. It will endorse the use of Bluetooth technology as a new group of medical and fitness products. There are some Bluetooth medical devices with proprietary technology already in the market. The coming design profile will boost interoperability and propagate the use of the technology. Michael Foley, executive director of the Bluetooth SIG says, Bluetooth technology ideally suites for medical devices. It will provide a better quality of life for patients while reducing the cost of healthcare too.
Can you believe that in future you can handle a machine with your thoughts only? Yes, it may be possible. The Japanese automaker Honda has developed a technology that will use brain signal to handle the Robots movements. It can be helpful for the people with spinal injuries to move their limbs. Honda Motor Co. concluded this research with ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories. The machine for reading the brain patterns will be smaller and lighter for the comfort ability of the patients. Honda Company calls this technique as ‘brain-machine interface’. It will be much helpful in the brain surgery and MRI scans. Honda officials said, It will first appeared on Asimo, the in-office-robots of Honda. Asimo, presently, is able to talk, walk and dance. It will take some ten years when it will start moving according to our mental orders.
An annual mammogram test is necessary for women to detect breast cancer. But most of them women hesitate to go for the test because of the pressure and pain of breast compression. To curb this problem CTLM has come with a solution. It is an electrifying new way to detect breast abnormalities without any pressure. CTLM i.e., Computed Tomography Laser Mammography, is a technique to know about the blood flow to the breast. As newly forming tumors increases blood flow, CTLM may find very small tumors hidden in routine mammography. Moreover, dense breast tissue can be easily detected with the laser. Here you can find some more facts about CTLM.
- Diabetic people now can use a new product, InsulAid, as a pinpointing and diagnostic tool to take care of the diabetes management. Presently they use three separate devices such as lancet, glucose monitor and needle for that. This new system has many advance functions. There is a needle-less injection system inserted into one device makes it easy to handle. InsulAid provides flexibility and benefits of an easy-handle, expedient and painless method of diabetes management. The lancet, glucose meter and needle-less injection system works on simple methods for blood test and insulin-injection through the stomas in the skin. This new device will help the diabetics for good health managment.
Now ‘Electronic Nose’ will smell disease, drugs, bombs and money other sickness. An Italian-French-Spanish team is developing this device and calling the project as ‘Spot Nosed’ project. The European Commission’s FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) funds this Spot-Nosed (Single Protein Nanobiosensor Grid Array) project Nanobiosensors detects odour molecules with greater accurateness, gives result that is beyond expectation. The team is now focusing on the technology’s potential health applications. This could lead to new tests for the presence of disease molecules in patients’ breath, urine or blood. Spot-Nosed-based devices will replace the expensive scans and invasive techniques in future. This will help to screen large groups of people with high-risk developing diseases. This ‘E-Nose’ has many more qualities such as detecting bombs and drugs. That will help the police officials to detect the illegal trade and terrorist activities.
If you want to get a more sophisticated digital device to store your medical information, you can find different products in market for this purpose. But AllergyKids is the up-to-the-minute device.

system employing the latest hardware, software and imaging protocols. Adapted for use in horses, a dedicated, custom facility has been built to utilize the unique features of this magnet. This magnet is 30,000 times of Earth’s magnetic field. It visualizes injuries that were impossible to diagnose accurately earlier. The exceptional properties of the magnet allow the aptitude to image the limbs, head, and neck of full size horses and whole body of animals less than 500 pounds.

Here is a new concept of accessing electronic medical record. Havannah seems to be a potential conception to access electronic medical record in coming ten years. It applies movable OLED technology using a 12″ diameter screen in an 8″ body. It is the low power using modular wireless technologies to get patient data at the bedside. The patient, the medical counselors and the nurse to smooth communication of diagnosis and procedures can use Havannah.
Here is the latest technology that makes healthcare outsourcing possible with covering larger distances. The electronic ICU technology allows intensive care specialists at Sentara Norfolk general hospital to cover eleven ICU at six hospitals. The hospitals are spread in sixty miles and the eICU is working round the clock. The success of eICU gives sign of successful future of telemedicine. Baltimore’s Visicu Inc. markets the eICU technology. It allows health centers to control and maximum use of the limited resources trained intensive-care doctors and nurses. By the help of this eICU, a single physician and nurse may support bedside caregivers for hundreds of patients at once.
