The medical-related content is somewhat horrible, and it always reminds us of bloody scenes like blood, corpses, diseases, knives, etc., and when the doctor is replaced by a machine sharpening knife, Huo Hu is coming to you. At that time, the scene was even more creepy. But technology is to give people's work to the machine as much as possible, and the medical field is no exception. This article counts 13 medical technology tools, which is really convenient, but it may also make you uneasy.


Veebot is expected to provide some assurance for patients who are difficult to find in the veins. Having said that, it is quite another to entrust the arm to a machine that wields a large needle. Blood collectors collect our blood samples because we trust them. But we may feel uneasy when we switch to a robot to draw blood. What if the robot goes wrong? What if the robot can't stop as required?

NO.2 surgical robot

Surgical robots may change the way you do surgery in the future. The industry is currently booming: by 2020, sales of surgical robots are expected to double from 640 billion.

The Da Vinci surgical robot system example tells us that the robot does not replace the surgeon. Instead, it enhances their skills and makes their surgery more precise. The Da Vinci system transforms the surgeon's hand movements into smaller, more precise mechanical movements that the surgeon can perform with very few small wounds. The surgical system consists of an enlarged 3D HD vision system and a small wrist instrument that bends and rotates more than the human hand, enhancing the range of vision, accuracy and control of the procedure.

However, lying under the scalpel operated by the machine is a horrible thing in itself. Although you are very comfortable entrusting your body to medical professionals, surgery on such a machine with a specific procedure may scare you. Accidents may occur during surgery, and such machines cannot be adapted.

But we will gradually realize the fact that surgical robots do have a lower turnover rate and they will perform surgery under the full control of the surgeon. I believe that such robots will become very common in the future.

NO.3 telemedicine robot

The shortage of medical resources is a global problem. According to the WHO assessment, the number of doctors, nurses and other medical workers has a gap of 4.3 million worldwide. At the same time, demand for medical resources is on the rise: rising prevalence, rising prevalence of modern diseases such as diabetes and obesity, and progressive aging societies require more and more medical resources.

Under such circumstances, more and more clinics will be equipped with telemedicine robots, and the participation of robots in medical procedures will become more and more common.

InTouch is committed to connecting doctors and patients through the Internet. With InTouch, patients in remote areas or people with reduced mobility can enjoy high-quality emergency consultations when they happen to need it, such as when they have a stroke, cardiovascular disease or burns.

The Remote Dentist Service in MouthWatch, an all-in-one remote dentistry platform where you can receive medical imagery, clinical records, billing codes and send messages to dentists a few miles away.

NO.4 Medical AI "Assistant"

Have you talked to the chat bot? Whether or not it is, cleverbot.com is worth experiencing! On this website, you wonder if you are chatting with a woman or an algorithm? Similarly, perhaps the sister you met on the gun site is actually an algorithm! What a creepy thing! But undoubtedly, artificial intelligence has been applied in more and more fields.

Artificial intelligence is to give computers the ability to learn, think, rational, and even understand human emotions, and let computers do more repetitive work. AI can help doctors reduce the mortality rate of patients waiting to see a doctor. We can turn these algorithms into a medical assistant like a singer. When we are not feeling well, if it is necessary to seek medical attention, it will introduce us to the doctor.


AR (Augmented Reality) is a technology that calculates the position and angle of camera images in real time and adds corresponding images, videos, and 3D models. The goal of this technology is to put the virtual world on the screen. The world interacts.

In the medical field, AR can assist surgeons in surgical procedures, helping them find veins faster, and AR may have a revolutionary impact on anatomy research.

Compared to the real world, AR can let us see more, but AR equipment has a problem exposed in the Google Glass era a few years ago: privacy leaks. Even on many occasions, Google Glass is forbidden. Unlike mobile phones, AR devices are completely invisible when using the camera. Everything in our lives is exposed to the camera and can be photographed or recorded at any time. When VR moves from the lab to life, privacy issues become a matter of serious need.


Wearing VR glasses must be a unique and exciting experience, and nothing else can be compared. And this is why medical experts believe that VR has the hope to reform medical care. It has already appeared in several medical fields. So we need to get familiar with it as soon as possible.

For example, VR is useful for relieving patient hospitalization pressure and releasing their boredom. A hospital in Los Angeles introduced VR to their patients to help them release stress and relieve pain. Using this special pair of glasses, patients can get out of the hospital with four white walls, experience the charm of Iceland, participate in the creation of an art studio or swim in the blue ocean with whales.

NO.7 Exoskeletons (Bone Rehabilitation Robot)

Exoskeletons is a machine that can help people move around and take on people's weight. With their help, the sick patient can walk again. For example, a gait-training Exoskeletons helps a groom who is below the chest to walk to his bride.

But when we first saw people walking or running with it, we would open our mouths to its strange appearance. Regardless of the appearance of Exoskeletons, we need to get used to it as it gets more and more.

NO.8 food scanner and printer

Eating is a socially high thing, but when we go out to eat, we don't know what we eat, what we should eat, how we should eat.

Food scanners and nutritional genomics will change this. The former can tell you the exact ingredients of the meal, and the latter tells you what to eat based on your metabolic status. For example, Nima, a gluten sensor, was named one of the 25 best inventions of 2015 by Time magazine. It's a portable, well-designed gadget that tells you whether the food on the plate contains gluten in two minutes based on a small sample of food. However, with the application of food scanners and printers, there has been a problem: when we bring new technology to the table and pursue the nutrition and health of food, the social nature of the meal will be affected.

But we must get used to these new gadgets and use them consciously, deliberately maintaining a healthy balance between technology and people.

NO.9 digital tattoo

Today, we have a wide range of wearable sensors that collect your health data. These gadgets are intelligent and are often used in specific scenarios, such as sleep, exercise, etc. - but they are also large, inconvenient to use, and sometimes it is difficult to get effective advice on lifestyles from the data they provide. Soon, truly wearable, tiny digital tattoos will appear. Microchips manufactured by MC10 can measure many vital signs simultaneously. Checklight's biochip is attached to the skull to detect if the head is injured after a collision.

You may feel horrible, there is a tiny device in your body, and you have little feeling that it can collect all kinds of data from you, and even forward it to designated people. Insurance companies and our doctors may also get our Data, it can also cause serious privacy violations. So we must be careful and fully prepared for it.

NO.10 portable diagnostic equipment

In Star Trek, Dr. McCoy found an abnormality immediately after scanning his patient through his tricorder, which is really cool. When we go to the doctor, the same thing can happen to us. We feel that we use one device after another, and they can measure our vital signs and basic health parameters.

Our diagnostic equipment is also moving towards mobility, so it's worth preparing for it. Although the current product is far less than Dr. McCoy's tricorder, our technology can quickly reach that level. You'll see smartphones with high-powered microscopes, such as photos of swab samples and skin lesions; sensors that detect abnormalities in DNA, detect antibodies or specific proteins; electronic noses, ultrasound probes, or almost any We now attach to the smartphone and enhance its functionality.

NO.11 drone transport medical equipment

I have a small drone that can be controlled by a central sensor.

It sounds weird, but when the drone delivers the items you bought on Amazon to your door, you believe it.

Already a company is testing it. When the road is in poor condition or in need of help, the drone can transmit medical equipment (such as a semi-automatic defibrillator) to a set GPS position in a matter of seconds. Zipline International is a Silicon Valley startup that supplies drugs and blood to Rwandan patients via drones and plans to expand its operations to other countries by the end of the year. In September, UPS, the world's largest shipping company, completed a medical supplies transportation test flight, transporting medical supplies from Beverly, Mass to Beverly, Mass, which are about 3 kilometers apart.

The future is very close, we need to accept the drone transport items as soon as possible, and get used to flying in the air, carrying a lot of medical supplies.

NO.12 genome sequencing service

Genomic sequencing has been the focus for many years. Since 2005, since 2006, through 23andme, Navigenics or Pathway Genomics, patients can order sequencing services online. This business can be run on the assumption that anyone can order a genome sequencing service at home to understand some of their specific medical risks and what lifestyles they should choose to circumvent these risks.

I have already done four genetic tests, and even trained as a researcher in genomics, but when the test results came out, I was still nervous. Because I can't do anything about it, it's really stressful to see the test results. But the more we understand our genetic code and disease predisposition, the more we can prevent them.

So I encourage you to order a genome test - to help you get to know your body from a whole new perspective!

NO.13 AI toy

Cognitoys, an artificial intelligence toy, promotes the cognitive development of children in a fun and gentle way. The emergence of this kind of toy makes us discover that artificial intelligence can not only change our lives, but also bring us happiness.

Cognitoys also gives us a feeling of confusion and insecurity. We humans may not be the only group that can collect and analyze information. I can tell you that when your child tells you that he is a friend of an AI with his own personality, we should be prepared for it in time.
