Technologies that make us hope for the future

Technologies and the future in the field of health: I have gathered here a series of innovations that make the future of medicine more prosperous than we could have imagined only a few decades ago.

Artificial organs

There are new technologies that may be able to restore the function of human organs or replace them altogether.
An example above all: i nano-filters (silicone filters with nanotechnology) that function like an artificial kidney and may soon make dialysis unnecessary.

App and Medical Device

For years, some technologies have only been accessible in hospitals or in private practice specialists.
When traditional technologies such as portable ECG / ultrasound devices will be available to everyone, they will bring healthcare to a new level: it can also take place in our homes without incurring excessive costs.

Beyond any physical barrier

Do you want proof that technology can literally change our lives?
Just look this video : a paralyzed patient gets up from his wheelchair, using an exoskeleton.
The exoskeletons will allow people who are born without a limb or who have lost it in an accident, to finally live a normal life.

Sensors for measuring our vital parameters

Sensors that measure health parameters, showing a glimpse of exercise habits, sleep quality, stress levels or brain activity, are already available for the consumer market. And in a sense they have already begun to change our lives and our relationship with our bodies.

Robots to the rescue at home and in the hospital

Although limited the artificial intelligence it’s already part of our life.
Thanks to the algorithms of the chat-bots, robots can intervene to support the man in commissions and at home with activities that require greater physical strength.
But let us not forget that risky medical procedures can be supported by the robotic surgery for greater accuracy, not affected by a bad mood or sleepless nights.

CRISPR or rethinking genomics

Thanks to this technique of DNA manipulation we could cut unwanted elements from our DNA, add new “functionalities” to the DNA of animals, plants and even humans, and treat previously incurable diseases such as Huntington’s disease .

Universal translator

Already a few years on Skype a translator is available that helps the user to make video calls in 8 different languages.
Health information is not always available in the user’s language.
Indeed, let’s be clear, quality content is all in English but not everyone can use it.
Breaking down language barriers also in the field of health is a MUST for a borderless health system.
And in part this is already possible thanks to Videum.com whose mission is to disseminate information on health and well-being in any language thanks to the subtitling of the videos.
