MD+DI: These Consumer Technologies Could Show Us What’s Next in Medical Devices

What’s Next in Medical Devices

The October 4, 2017 online edition of MD+DI features These Consumer Technologies Could Show Us What’s Next in Medical Devices by StarFish Medical Mechanical Engineer, Nigel Syrotuck.  “Here are two technologies that you may not immediately connect with healthcare applications, but that could make a big splash in the upcoming years in medical devices” sums up the journey Nigel shares with readers in his latest guest blog on the impact that Location Hardware Systems and Holograms may have on future medical devices.

“Here’s part of his take on holograms: The medical application for holographic technology is the ying to a scanner systems’ yang: high fidelity 3-D image display. As scanners become more effective and prevalent, an appropriate medium will be needed to display their info-packed 3-D data. Easy to use 3-D models and interactive projections could help physicians plan surgeries, care staff converse with co-workers, or store and display far more detail in medical records than currently available.”
