Re: 10 More Robots That Could Change Healthcare
What an interesting topic! It's funny how Healthcare is probably one of the greatest/most important ways that technology affects our day-to-day lives, and yet the one we're most likely to not know something about. I'm a pretty tech-savvy person (I assume most of us here are), and yet I hadn't heard of most of these. I've certainly heard of the latest nifty game controller innovations, but why not things that are more important? It's my fault, of course, but I think what you say is true, Dave; people prefer not to think of what their brain cancer treatment will look like, because they don't want to think about having brain cancer. Still, a more frank discussion leads to better advancements.
And what great advancements some of these are! They're all great, but the exeskeleton, in particular, is something I had no idea about. Some of the others are theoretical, which as we all know doesn't always translate into real usability. The fact that we have something that advanced in helping with therapy and pain relief already is pretty surprising. Looking at this list does reinforce just how broad a field 'healthcare' is. Are prosthetics really as important as cancer treatment? Maybe, but for different reasons. This is an area where there can never be too many developments or too much funding.
