The New Frontier Of Implantable Technology

New visions and new progress on the merger of man and machine. We’ll look at the frontier of implantable technology. It has this feeling of inevitability. The merger of man and machine. The implanting of computer power in and on the human body. Some future holiday season when people are lined up for software and equipment upgrades that aren’t just handheld – they’re in us and on us. Of us. Plenty of researchers are working that frontier right now. For your health – to track and treat your heart, your mood. Give you a tattoo full of computer circuitry. Others would push right inside to pump up your senses and more. This hour On Point: the new frontier of implantable technology. – Tom Ashbrook Guests John Rogers, professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Director of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois. Recipient of a 2009 MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant.

The Digital Life - Episode 54 - Design is Medicine

Healthcare is deadly. As patients and clinicians, we have long passed the threshold of comprehension when it comes to the amount of data and variables that support life-critical decisions. The system needs to be redesigned and re-imagined. True change comes from establishing a vision for healthcare that will modernize how doctors and patients interact with their health data to quantified and measurable medicine. In this episode of The Digital Life, we discuss the idea that “Design is Medicine,” with Involution Studios Creative Director, Juhan Sonin. In his health design practice, Sonin explores how linear-thinking human beings can interpret non-linear, unbalanced health metrics, and how healthcare can be saved through coordination, presentation and design. Join us as we look at the design, data, and policy challenges, as well as the scary new ideas being invented to solve them, that makes tackling the healthcare problem daunting and exciting. http://thedigitalife.com/5_questions/design-is-medicine
