Sensor pills that you can swallow and where you can follow all diagnostics in a full report app on your smartphone. It doesn’t stay in the body and it goes in through the mouth and you just shit it out. Everything that has to do with the way it passes (digestion system for instance) should be possible to diagnose. (Inspiration HT for this idea: Scanadu)
With all those products and services monitoring your health nowadays, people become obsessed with the state of their personal health. P-Health stands for personal health service. It’s a service that aggregates all product and service feeds (health data) you have and use, analyses its reports and gives you feedback on a regular basis. A dedicated team of doctors and coaches is at your disposal to answer any question and makes recommendations to improve your health status. It saves time and buys expertise you don’t have and no tool can ever give. The objective is better health, the goal for P-Health is to make it happen with you in a unique, personal way.
The business model is subscription fee based for the monitoring with personal chats and (training) programs on a consultancy basis.
Wearable stuff is what it’s all about right? The WeddiMeddi is a ring with your medical data filed on. It can be read hospitals, medics, nurses, etc. Whenever something goes wrong, the healthcare personel sector does not always have the right information about patients. In case of life and death situations, it’s not wrong to have a device in which the most pertinent information can be read out instantly.
The choice for a ring? Just like a wedding ring, it’s the only thing one will always wear. For better and for worse. 🙂
I went to a #bryo4ever event tonight and I had really nice talks with a various audience. I didn’t really brainstorm a lot but with one. The idea? Intelligent pills that tell the nurses whether a patient has taken his/her pills.
How does it work? Well, a nano sensor is added to the form of a pill. That nano sensor has two main characteristics. The first is that is programmable to be identified (you can add a pill name and dosage to it but also tell who it’s for). The second characteristic is that when the substance around is resolved and taken up by the body, the sensor sends out a signal that it has been consumed. Follow up on patients is really easy. In case you were wondering… The sensor just comes out with the next toilet visit.
Probably the thing that touches your chest most. Seem logic to me that the Scanadu Scout by Walter De Brouwer and Misha Chellam (or even Teddy the Guardian :)) types of this world start to close deals with car manufacturers to monitor our health, collect the data and anticipates in all possible ways to improve our daily health and thus lives. Connected cars, connected healthcare,… who thought these two would enforece eachother? A health checkup has never been easier.
