Top 70 Health Ideas in November

From Migraine-Tracking Apps to VR Surgical Training Systems

— November 26, 2017 — Lifestyle
From migraine-tracking apps to VR surgical training systems, the November 2017 health trends reveal that technology is dramatically changing the way consumers monitor their own health, as well as the way medical professionals learn about treatment.

On the consumer-facing side, digital healthcare platforms have made it easier than ever for consumers to take control of their medical issues. This can range from simple app platforms like Spokin, which allows consumers to better manage food allergies, to life-changing tools such as smart bandages that can release medication at pre-scheduled intervals.

Interestingly, the November 2017 health trends also reveal that technology is also changing the way doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are learning. For instance, the creators at Side Effects Asia Pacific have leveraged VR to create simulated surgical scenarios that provide trainees with insight into the high-pressure and emotional process of emergency medical treatments. Similarly, Embodied Labs has used VR to create a program that allows medical students to see things from a patient's perspective in order to impart empathy.
