The medical device development industry is considered a significant part in the healthcare industry transforming and evolving in leaps and bounds in the last few decades. The complex combination of smart machines, digital connectivity and IT systems has enabled the progress into levels considered as state of the art.
The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG), is a facial nerve bundle that has been associated with individuals suffering from severe migraines, cluster headaches, excruciating pains in regions of the head and face, identified through various in-depth medical studies. A solution that is being considered to treat such patients involves implanting of a small nerve stimulation device or devices in the upper gum area close to the effected side of the head. At any given moment of a patient senses the onset of a headache, a remote controller is used to activate the closest implant in blocking, the pain causing neuro transmitters. This is considered as electronic aspirin and is used in adverse cases as immense relief compared to the pain suffered.
Non Invasive Monitoring
The future growth trends in better omron medical equipment development focus on improvement of software for wearable and portable devices on a larger scale. This can have positive impacts on diagnosis and treatment of many life threatening conditions such as cancer. Melanoma is a form of skin cancer mostly ignored due to similarities to a mole or easily misdiagnosed. In order to correctly diagnose this condition surgical biopsies are considered as the initial step. However an advanced non invasive method has now been developed, which uses an optical scanner using multispectral analysis to read tissue morphology. The technology comes from missile navigation technology and scans suspicious skin surfaces using electromagnetic wavelengths enabling surgeons to identify melanoma and other diseases. Similarly a non invasive method is being perfected by various scientific research organisations & manufacturers to detect and analyse diabetes. Research on transdermal biosensors capable of reading blood analytes through the skin with information being logged into a remote system, allowing data to be monitored. It is creating much interest within the industry and gathering momentum with several business partners actively contributing to its growth.
Dr. Robot, To the Rescue
Using robotics in treating many medical conditions is not a surprise these days. And one such method is Remote Presence Robotic Checkups, which is a concept coming into play in a time of continued advancement of artificial intelligence and robotics in healthcare equipment suppliers. Ideal for routine processes, the technology is being considered to be incorporated into multiple government & private hospitals and centres worldwide.These are some of the key trends within the medical industry gaining increasing momentum in term of its use and continued development. There will be much more advanced methods of treating life threatening diseases in the future no doubt.
