However, a question arises: how far will connected technology take us away? Some connected objects of the near future are announced as real medical robots to supplant doctors and surgeons … Here are 10 revolutionary smart health devices that seemed to us quite extraordinary!

10 Revolutionary smart health devices !

The health goal of the basic connected object, the connected smart health bracelet, is first and foremost the struggle, simple and fun, against the sedentary life that threatens us all. The patient who becomes an actor of his health: this is the challenge of e-health, with the stated goal of better care, better prevention, to better heal.

Panorama (provisional) of our medicine of tomorrow.

A smart health bracelet anti-sunburn

A connected bracelet of a new kind is appearing on the beaches to monitor a person’s sun exposure to prevent skin cancer. No more ravaging sunburns! Now, this bracelet is able to measure the time spent under the UV, and send all the information collected on smartphone or tablet … The user receives this data in real time, he knows when to renew his sunscreen, and when he must imperatively put in the shade to protect themselves. He must have previously informed his skin type and the color of his eyes.

A bracelet destroying cancer cells

The giant Google never ceases to invest in connected health. He is currently developing a connected bracelet to destroy cancer cells, just that! The user will first have to ingest nanoparticles that, once attached to cancer cells located in the body of the patient, will emit light. Then these nanoparticles reach the wrist, attracted by a specific magnet located in the connected bracelet. It can then go to the phase of elimination of these diseased cells … In all simplicity!

The cyberpillules

The appearance of cyberpillules dates back to 2004. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the subcutaneous implantation of chips with radiolabels for medical purposes. Now, cyberpillules are equipped with microprocessors, which, once ingested, can measure biophysical parameters and send this information to the doctor.

Cyberpillules are also able to deliver to patients their daily doses of medication.

A special  smart watch for old age

Connected watches can become allies of old age and its vicissitudes. Already, they offer all the usual sensor measurements: steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned … Bluetooth, Wifi, 3G, GPS: the most advanced types of connection can monitor a dependent person, in real time and where ‘she is. The user in distress can make calls to registered numbers (relatives, doctors, etc.) in the simplest way in the world. Safety side, this type of watch will be equipped with a fall sensor. Thus in case of detection of an accident or a fall, an SOS message will be automatically sent to relatives indicating the GPS position of the person who is a victim. And in return, her family will be able to contact her directly via her connected watch. Finally it can be a virtual pill, and vibrate when it’s time to take a drug.

Smart patches

There are patches with flexible electronic circuits that now stick to the skin and monitor the health of the user, via his smartphone.

Bionic bihormonal pancreas

This object is composed of 2 boxes, controlled by a smartphone. The first case is able to measure the blood sugar level (glycemia) every 5 minutes, and the second case sends a hyperglycemic hormone when the user is in hypoglycemia. This effective coupling will enable diabetics to regain real autonomy in the face of the disease.

A nanobot surgeon

A nanorobot is currently being studied by European researchers. It has 15 modules that are swallowed by the patient before assembling in the intestine and performing very complex surgical operations!

If connected smart health bracelets now equip our wrists with the constancy of a wristwatch, a course is now taken in the design of connected objects of the future. Not only do new technologies become an indispensable tool for healing more effectively, but they also make it possible to explore unknown territories not long ago. Thus, the collection and exploitation of data will substantially improve prevention and especially open the door to a predictive medicine that could take precedence over a curative medicine!
