As never before, technology and science have shown their speed to create.The 2021 did not dry back and brought out leading developments, here we mentioned some of the most novel
Covid-19 pandemic still marked the health sector in 2021.The virus, distance and confinement added new challenges for researchers and were also part of the distinctive seal of new products.
To understand the speed with which innovation and medical science advance, it is enough to cite the example of vaccines against SARS-COV-2.Such is the case of the one developed by Pfizer and Bionntech in ten months, record time.
The objective of each year is to progress with the creation of medical articles or quality devices that, according to patients or specialists, offer benefits in treatments or diagnosis.
This 2021, innovation opted to make the life of the most comfortable patients.They highlight self -monitoring devices from home, which helped have precise measurements and avoid transfers to health centers.
1- "Magic" mirror
Now just look at you in the mirror so that this device makes a fast check at your body temperature, vital signs, skin analysis and even gives beauty tips.
It is called Themis, a tool that is called as an intelligent mirror that integrates several sensors that perform basic health checks every time the user looks in him.
Checking offers results in body temperature, vital signs, skin analysis, monitoring of women's cycles, and even offers makeup, hair and skin care tutorials.
To do this, the mirror has a high quality RGB camera, a IR temperature sensor and a UV light that analyzes the skin.
2- OMRON VITALSIGHT
The OMRON company promoted this year life, an instrument kit designed so that patients with hypertension can monitor and report precise blood pressure data to their doctors without leaving home.
With the use of a smartphone, the results can be sent by the user or consulted by the doctor on a platform that carries the digital records.
This artifact allows the health specialist to detect some anomaly in case of presenting it, and offers preventive or corrective treatment.
In the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021 connoted international technology fair, it was presented as the first remote monitoring service of hypertensive people designed to maintain control of blood pressure of risk patients, improve communication with the doctor andfavor data exchange to optimize treatments.
3-masks that monitor
The use of masks has become usual during this sanitary contingency.Among the innovations, Airpop Active+, a fabric mask that has a unique sensor capable of monitoring user's breathing patterns and offering data on external air quality.
Meanwhile, the Breeze mask includes two silent fans that are able to filter and circulate the air.It is also equipped with a UV light that disinfects it while loading.
Another innovation in this protection is that of Project Hazel, an intelligent, transparent, ventilated protector that filters the air and that has a microphone with amplifier to favor communication.
4- Virtual reality lenses that examine the view
One of the most outstanding innovations are the so -called VROR EYE, virtual reality lenses that include sensors that detect the movement of the eyes and stimulate them at the same time through images.
The sensor has an algorithm that simulates a view of the view that compares with user's eyes data.The results of the ophthalmic analysis that can be sent to any cell phone by applying the product, which has the possibility to save a record for future follow -ups of the attending physician.
5- BRACELET MEASURES THE GLUCOSE
It can be said that the most uncomfortable when measuring glucose is the puncture that is required to obtain the drop of blood.Aware of this, the Japanese company Quantum Operation Inc.He developed a bracelet that only needs to be placed on the patient's wrist and through a spectrometer can measure vital signs.
This device allows to obtain at any time of the day glucose readings, heart rate and even electrocardiography, through a portable phone, which also gives doctors the opportunity to have access to data for the patient's constant monitoring.
