"Insights from Industry" is a dynamic series of interviews at the cutting edge of the medical industry.
Every interviewee is a leader in their particular field and is handpicked to give an informative and accessible
insight into their chosen field. These interviews are guaranteed to keep you in the know in a rapidly changing industry.
Oticon Opn is a hearing aid that allows connection to a smartphone and supports all the internet-enabled connectivity that you have on the internet that smart devices support. We have specifically chosen a web-based community called “If This Then That” (IFTTT) because it is a relatively very easy to use third party service that is supported by a lot of the large global device manufacturers.
Professor Charles McCollum, who heads up the vascular studies unit, is a research vascular surgeon, and he developed four-layer bandaging technique, which is the gold standard treatment for healing up leg ulcers by compression.
In the UK, more than 5% of emergency department visits and up to 40% of emergency admissions are as a direct result of chest pain. Chest pain-related emergency hospital admissions not only create a vast economic burden on healthcare services but also cause huge disruption to inpatient care.
With our unique team and the power of the recent revolution in immersive reality technology, we are finally able to address these issues by providing a highly mobile, hands-on, realistic training platform that allows practitioners to learn or review complex surgical procedures without risking patient safety.
We would normally divide the additive manufacturing technology into seven different groups. Whilst they all focus on building layer by layer, the way in which those layers are constructed varies according to the different type of additive manufacturing technology that's being used.
People with a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) are unable to sweat because their body can no longer communicate with their brain. They risk overheating with every revalidation exercise. While this was the main driver for Staels Design, we have since noted that almost every single wheelchair user has issues with heat and moisture.
Paediatrics challenges players to describe and guess medical conditions and treatments against the clock. Players take turns to select a card and describe the medical term on it to their teammates without using the jargon words listed on that card.
Diagnostic tests are critical as up to 60 to 70% of critical clinical decisions are influenced by diagnostic test results. It's of huge importance to the running of any healthcare system. Here at Abbott, we believe that providing clinicians with quick access to diagnostics information and insights can help them make quick clinical decisions around the appropriate treatment for a patient,
Organoids are bits of tissue grown in vitro, in a near-physiological 3D setting. The particularity consists in the fact that organoids retain features of the patient they are derived from, even when cultured outside of the human body. This is very different from what traditional, conventional cell culture has been able to do over the past 50 years or so.
The vision for the partnership is to incorporate artificial intelligence into online GP consultations by providing accessible information that is certified and verified by Health Commissions so that we reduce the demand for GP services. The underlying aim or objective is to shape demand for healthcare services.
“Anxiety disorders” refers to a broad range of psychiatric conditions, where people are anxious. It covers things like obsessive-compulsive disorder, general anxiety disorder and phobic disorder. Interestingly, anxiety is also a feature of severe mental illnesses such as psychosis and depression.
The market has changed quite a lot. When I first investigated the industry, and launched BetterYou the natural heath industry was the domain of the educated few. People did a lot of research before they walked into a health store; they knew the questions they wanted to ask and expected quite a good deal of information in return.
Epigenetics is a system of information that lies atop DNA to control which genes are accessible, active and inactive. Each cell in your body essentially has identical DNA, but they have different patterns of expression.
Richmond Pharmacology have opened their fourth clinical trial facility and the new site has been used for this type of work for more than 30 years. It's in an ideal location embedded in the University and teaching hospital campus.
The international survey on sleep that was recently conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Philips, was conducted to support World Sleep Day and the activities across the globe carried out on this day were to increase awareness of the importance of sleep health.
True benefit from healthcare products requires an unrelenting focus on patient- and consumer-centered safety, a principle that is at the heart of J&J’s Credo and is embodied in the mission of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer (OCMO).
There are dozens of brain training apps on the market. Regrettably, very few have any studies showing efficacy. A recent systematic review from experts at five Alzheimer’s research centers looked at 32 brain training programs, and found only seven had any studies to review showing effects in the target population of aging adults.
It is worth noting that in the U.S. and in many countries, digital pathology is still at a very early stage, compared to many other fields that were digitized 15 or 20 years ago such as radiology. There have been some barriers to the adoption of digital pathology such as regulatory challenges that are only just now being overcome. Recently, the FDA approved the use of whole slide imaging software for primary diagnostics.
We've been in Formula 1 now for 51 years. What defines our ability to compete is the fact that we have understood the need to innovate. In addition, we take an incremental rather than disruptive approach to innovation.
Our medical connectors are used on a variety of medical devices. Here in the U.S. medical devices are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and classified into three risk categories, classes I, II and III.
