Handheld Testing

Seeking autonomy, patients turn to compact health apparatuses

Implications - While medical checkups and tests are often necessary for patient examination, reliance on nurses and practitioners can make individuals feel dependent on others. Helping to make medical experiences more self-efficient, consumers are turning to mobile testing devices to help scan or keep track of illnesses at their convenience. These medical innovations help give patients a sense of independence, despite their medical diagnosis.
