Over the years we have seen a number of innovations becoming a part of the medical industry. Ultrasound pocket-sized devices and virtual reality therapies are just a few examples of how far we have come in our progress.
Despite not being able to predict the future, we can still take a glimpse into some of the concepts and inventions below – a list that represents the recasting of public health and medical science.
Medical Supplies Delivered By Drones
The UPS has been conducting a number of trial programs, called the Flight Forward, which makes use of autonomous drone deliveries of crucial medical samples such as tissues or blood between hospital branches. The concept program had succeeded and the FAA has granted the developing company of the drones approval to expand to 20 hospitals around the United States in the next two years. With more success from their ventures, they will be able to deliver critical medical supplies to rural villages and other places that do not have easy access to medical services.
Stem Cell Cures For Diabetes
According to the Times, type 1 diabetes affects more than 1 million Americans and treatment for it can involve years of cautious eating, blood-glucose tests, and insulin injections. However, stem cells have become a new alternative treatment as they replace the beta cells to produce insulin. Much work has yet to be done but we can definitely see the efforts being put into the project and we predict that soon it will become a possible treatment in the future for diabetes – and other diseases as well.
Pocket-sized Ultrasound Devices
Unfortunately, more than 4 billion people around the world do not have access to medical imaging – which is why the researchers at Butterfly iQ developed a handheld ultrasound device by using a small chip to provide the same functions of a regular ultrasound technology. The gadget connects to an app and has gradually become popular over the years. The device still has a long way to go to provide the same facilities as the big machines or replace them in prosperous parts of the world – but it could still make scanning more easy.
Fortunately, we have had more professionals entering the industry that are working towards an innovative change in our medical industry. Consider Shu Li – a highly acclaimed serial entrepreneur who has been working in all kinds of professional industries and making a name for himself as one of the best serial entrepreneurs across the globe.
Shu Li also serves as an outstanding professor, scientist, and senior corporate executive who has founded a number of enterprises within the healthcare, semiconductor, biomedical sectors, some of which include Cellular BioMedicine Group, Helio Genomics, WA Health Centers and many more.
Li managed the 7×24 operations of one of Intel’s largest semiconductor fabrications facilities in the United States, while leading a research and development pilot production of three semiconductor chip factories in Motorola’s Arizona R&D.
Within the healthcare industry, his focus has been mostly on regenerative medicine, anti-aging medicine, and functional medicine. Plus, he founded the Cellular BioMedicine Group which serves as a biopharmaceutical company in CAR-T cancer immunotherapy and stem cell joint regeneration – which eventually became public on NASDAQ in 2014 and has been playing a major role in contributing aid for an improved healthcare future for the public.
