5. What is the study of medical technology?

Medical technology is a broad term that includes everything from the most basic bio-engineering and biotechnology, to software and hardware, from artificial intelligence to computer vision algorithms. It can also include things like diagnostics, disease monitoring, and patient-assistance tools. In short, it’s everything that helps people live longer, healthier lives.

So what kind of medical technology do we need in 2022? What elements of medical technology will make our lives better? How will it measure up against other medical technology?

The answer to all these questions is more of it. And not just in terms of sheer size or scope: both how we diagnose and treat illness, and how we administer life-saving medications are going to grow at exponential rates with the advent of AI and machine learning. We want “good buying power” too — something that enables us to research better drugs — not just because pharmaceutical companies will be more successful than ever (they already are), but because a single drug that works for one person may not work for another (even if the same generic version would still work).

I have no idea what the world looks like in 2022. But I do know that there will be a huge demand for good buying power then: significant improvements in patient-education tools; new ways to monitor disease progression; new methods for diagnosing patients . . . all this requires a lot more investment than anyone has been able to devote to it so far. It was the same when I was in medicine — there was so much money being poured into new diagnostic techniques and treatments back then, yet little else; but then again many things haven’t changed since then either!

6. Is medical technology a good career?

Medical technology is a field that has been very heavily influenced by the development of the Internet and its use to create medical applications. It is not a field that has seen much growth in the past few years. According to the 2014 Global Alliance for Medical Device Vendors (GA) report, Medical Technology revenue was only $1.5 billion in 2013; sales have remained steady at less than $2 billion since 2011.

So what is medical technology going to look like in 2022? Will it be a new industry dominated by Amazon and Apple? Or will it be a mix between tech giants like Apple and Amazon, Baidu and Google?

Will medical technology be defined by health IT? Since Google+ was announced, many have speculated that we might see an even more advanced version of Google’s social network with unique features for healthcare professionals, especially for treating patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes or Parkinson’s disease.

Will medical technology be defined by software-as-a-service (SaaS)? With all of this potential competition from the likes of Amazon and Baidu, we are likely to see similar buzzwords like “frictionless” and “convenience” thrown around quite a lot as companies attempt to differentiate their offerings from each other.

7. Market Opportunities

Healthcare is a multi-billion dollar industry, and as the population ages, it will only get bigger. There are lots of advantages to being an early mover in the space, but there are also bad risks.

The biggest risk lies in getting caught up in a gimmick or trend. The space is volatile, and you’re likely to take a hit if you get carried away with something that doesn’t pan out.

This is what happened with the first generation of 3D printed products. They were not well received by the medical community and were quickly forgotten.

The second big risk lies in being too aggressive on pricing; you’ve got to find the right balance between price-per-unit and margin-per-unit (which will be different depending on your business model). If you price too high — either because you think it’s a good value or because the market isn’t ready for it — then people won’t buy into your design (or at least will make their thoughts known). If you price too low — either because you think it’s a bad value or because people aren’t ready for it — then people won’t buy into your product (or at least won’t make their thoughts known).

8. Disruptive Technology

As we watch the world evolve, we see an increasing number of disruptive technologies take control of our lives. Disruptive technology has the potential to change how people live and our future can be shaped by these technologies. Some of the ways in which we can tackle the problems posed by disruptive technology are:

1. Healthcare

2. Food

3. Energy

4. Transportation

5. Fitness & Personal fitness equipment

9. Inhibitors to Progress

In the long run, the development of medical technology is driven by economics. This is true of many things in life. Today, the cost of medical technology is so low that a small change in medical technology can make a vast difference in people’s lives.

There are two things that should be considered here: (1) what is medical technology? An industry generally defines it as anything which affects human health or pain (not financial gain), and (2) why is it important? Institutional interests have been very active in driving innovation and improving our lives for centuries. But ultimately, it’s about consumer needs and preferences.

The one thing we know for sure is that consumers will demand more from products and services in the future. They will want devices that are able to sense, detect and interact with their bodies, detect their symptoms and respond with treatments — all without having to be told. By then, we need to be ready for this:

In 2022, there will still be people who think “how would a computer know my symptoms if I didn’t tell it?” It will still be possible to use computers to control a robotic exoskeleton or monitor your blood pressure — but not just yet. In fact, even by 2022 you won’t always see an iPad sitting on your countertop — you might see something like this:

The iPhone 7 Plus has a larger screen than the iPhone 6 Plus but its case has bionic sensors which mean it can do much more than just display images — it can sense heat, pressure, and light stimuli and relay them back to your phone so you can interact with your device in new ways…

This graph shows how much different products have changed over time: for example the first VCR was pretty simple… . . . . . . . . . .

So why does this matter? Well, let me give you an example: while traditional medicine still dominates healthcare costs these days, because of better diagnostic tools as well as technologies like 3D printing we are now able to connect into our bodies at unprecedented levels — allowing us to effectively diagnose many chronic diseases at far less cost than traditional treatments. Additionally, because people are willing to learn about these technologies they have become far more affordable for everyone who wants them (this means

1) those who cannot afford traditional medicine at all

2) those who could afford conventional medicine can now afford 3D printed replacement parts

3) those who could afford conventional medicine

10. Conclusion

Janis Valjavec, a professor at the MIT Media Lab, has a great post on his blog that shows how medical technology is changing in 2022. He’s created a scenario with 5 key events to look out for:

● The first “life-threatening” phenomenon—the emergence of an infectious disease

● The first “completely preventable” phenomenon—the advent of antibiotics

● The first “treatable” phenomenon—the invention of vaccines

● A product that can save lives without resorting to surgery (or anesthesia)

● A device that can revolutionize medical care (and commerce) (and more!)

This is where the future will be set up. We need to focus on these points:

The first “life-threatening” event will likely be one in which we discover something life-threatening and there is no effective way to treat it. This may happen with viral epidemics like Ebola or H1N1 flu, or with pandemics like SARS or MERS. All of these diseases and their treatments were treatable in the past through surgery and anesthesia but now we have antibiotics, which are far more effective than surgical interventions, so most people survive.

The second “completely preventable” event will be one in which we can prevent some but not all outcomes of a disease for the patient by using vaccines or medications. The third “treatable” event will be one in which we can prevent some outcomes of diseases using a multitude of different technologies: vaccines and medications, diagnostic tests, and surgical procedures are all examples. The fourth event is one where we have multiple technologies working simultaneously; for instance, we could apply genetic engineering methods to produce viruses that attack specific organisms but do not harm people.

In this case, it would probably be possible to use cystic fibrosis gene therapy instead of surgery as an intervention if there was consensus around its use (which is why I think genetic engineering should be considered as an intervention). Finally, the fifth event involves combinations of all five above events stacked on top of each other; these are topics such as gene therapy combined with vaccination against polio, HIV combined with immunization against HIV-1 infection, etc. These combinations may also involve novel therapies such as gene therapies combined with immunotherapy against HIV-2 infection or gene therapies combined with radiation therapy against cancer tumors.
