Top technological advancements in medicine

The modern society and the modern era in which we reside reap great advantages from the advancements in technology. The healthcare sector is no exception. Out of all of the industries that technology plays a crucial role in, healthcare is definitely one of the most important. This merger is responsible for improving and saving countless lives all around the world.

We humans have immensely increased our capabilities in the medical field due to the help that latest and ever evolving technology provides researchers with - medicine has evolved. From availability of state of the art equipment, development of new techniques, ground breaking surgeries and procedures – all has been made possible because of the latest technology and medical equipment in patient care that helps diagnosis and treatment to be performed effectively and efficiently.

As technology decides the pace of progress in medicine, the fields of engineering and medical fields have started to merge. Due to the fact that machines and computers are getting smaller in size, health care facility is getting cheaper, effective and smarter.

  • One such mind boggling advancement is the ability to print bones using a 3D printer. The printer uses a mixture of zinc, silicon and calcium phosphate to create a formula that works really well. Gone are the days when we used to break an arm or a leg and wore a cast for weeks. Now the doctors prepare the model, place it at the sight of the broken bone and when the real bone grows up, the model disintegrates.
  • Anti –bleeding Gel. The anti-bleeding gel creates a synthetic framework that mimics the extracellular matrix, an awesomely named natural substance that helps cells in the body grow together. Although again due to technology, facilities like online doctor and online doctor available to help with any issue on the go. Technology such as this decrease the hassle of visiting the ER.
  • Food scanners. These scanners are a very interesting and beneficial discovery. They enable anyone to scan and find out exactly what is on their plates, providing a clear picture of the food components. The dissection helps to calorie control the portions aiding in weight loss and also to avoid dangerous food allergies.
  • Sensors and wearable technology. Sensors and wearable technology could be as simple as an alert sent to a care provider when a patient falls down or a bandage that can detect skin pH levels to tell if a cut is getting infected.
  • Telehealth/Telemedicine. The ability to access the doctor online (over the internet), or through a phone call has helped so many people. Those particularly who lacked proper health care facilities in rural areas. Now everyone has an access to book an appointment with the doctors of their choice. A doctor is just a click away.
  • 3D bio printing. Medical science teaming with bio-engineering has been able to 3D print the liver tissues. Latest advancements have claimed to generate tissues that closely mimics the structure and function of a real human liver.
