Envisioning the future of health technology

Envisioning the future of health technology Technology is the ultimate democratizing force in society. Over time, technology raises lowest common denominators by reducing costs and connecting people across the world. Medical technology is no exception to this trend: previously siloed repositories of information and expensive diagnostic methods are rapidly finding a global reach and enabling both patients and practitioners to make better use of information. This visualization is an exercise in speculating about which individual technologies are likely to affect the scenario of health in the coming decades. Arranged in six broad areas, the forecast covers a multitude of research and developments that are likely to disrupt the future of healthcare. Technological replacements to human features can not only restore senses to those without, but could also enhance conventional attributes into remarkable capabilities. Hopeless searches for matching donors and the irreplaceability of major organs and body parts will fade´away as synthetic or grow-to-order organics are further developed. 2040 REGENERATION Artificial retinas SENS ORY AUGMENTATION AUGMENTATION X SYNTHETIC & ARTIFICIAL ORGANS 2030 Artificial limbs Teleşcopic & microscopic vision Enhanced metabolism Artificial general- purpose cells Augmented hearing Artificial muscles 2020 Optogenetics Augmented olfaction 3D printed organs Artificial vascular system Neuroprosthetics Myoelectric prosthesis Exoskeletons Auditory visjon substitution Tissue regeneration Synthetic blood Blood stream sensors Hybrid assisted limbs Tissue-embedded sensors Personalized medicine Ingestible šensors Envisioning the future of health technology Enterotype treatméñts Epidermat sensors 30-printed drugs Mediçal tricorder Rapid gene At-home sequencling Non-invasive glucose sensors In-clothes Bloelectronic drugs Open health records Stem-cell treatments Questlon answering computing systems Nanocomposite drug carriers Prenatal gene manipulation Data-driven patient communities envislonlngtech.com/health/ Data-driven diagnostics Gene therapy App-driven diágnostics Anti-aging stem-čel treatments Robotic surgery Natural language processing AR şurgery assistāncé Telemetrics Anti-aging drugs Virtual triage 2020 Genetic engineering Full body simulation Suspended anímation Robotic healthcare assistants Full-body cryopreservation to be in the constant physical presence of their patients to make a diagnosis or perform procedures.
