The future brings infinite possibilities, in health terms too. This means that technology is now increasingly being used to analyse physical well being. People are becoming more and more involved in managing their own heath. Rather than remaining passive recipients of health care they are now active participants. In response to this, increasing numbers of applications and systems are being developed.
Take, for example, a revolutionary smartwatch. The device is equipped with all kinds of medical applications. Using an electrocardiogram it can therefore provide more information about heart functions. More specifically, the smartwatch analyses the rhythm and frequency of the heart beat. As a consequence this smartwatch provides additional checks and safety whilst avoiding the hassle of a doctor's appointment. The apparatus also makes it possible to detect a fall. As a result, those wearing the device can call the emergency services in a single movement should they suffer a fall. Moreover, an automatic signal will be sent if no reaction is received within one minute.
A similar new gadget will measure the heart pattern and detect arrhythmias using a smartphone. Patients are simply required to put a finger on the smartphone camera and the analysis is completed in no time.
With health becoming more important, it is now also the intention to focus on offering hi-tech health analyses to third-world countries. The aim is to install technology in a plaster, which people could buy for as little as five euros.
It is very clear that technological evolution brings an infinite range of possibilities. Smartwatches equipped with an EEG function, smartphones with a camera that monitors the heart pattern, cheap plasters that analyse health and much more besides. Hence our focus on implementing technology in the healthcare sector in order to protect and optimise customer health. If you can think of it, we can develop it!
