Modern methods of diagnostics and genetics

How will diagnosis of diseases in the future

The development of medical technologies goes to the fact that people could monitor their health independently. Today, in every house, you can see blood pressure monitors. Patients with diabetes use portable blood glucose meters.

Devices for pressure measurement, scales and other portable equipment equipped with wireless transmitters, which allow direct data transfer and keep track of their health.

As reported on the website the company Health Wear is developing a "smart garment" that gathers data on the human condition: the heart rate, body temperature, respiratory rate. In such smart clothes sewed still under development chips that not only take measurements but also enable data to be transmitted to the mobile phone.

Japanese scientists have developed a smart toilet that during morning visits to the restroom can diagnose the health of the user. This device allows not only to quickly do a urine test, but also measures pressure, body temperature and weight. This toilet is connected to your home network and can transmit data about the health status of the user's computer. The person gets a great opportunity to monitor their well-being over long periods of time, as all data is stored and can be displayed in graphs, which can monitor the dynamics. In case of impairment tests, the system notifies its owner.

 Devices of such plan are created for the primary diagnosis, which can be carried out not only within the walls of medical institutions, but also at home.


Genetic technologies


An important step is the development of genetic technologies. Cheaper genetic analysis leads to the development of personalized medicine. Today the analysis of its genome can be done for about $ 200. Reducing the cost of the survey will reveal not only hereditary diseases, but predisposition to different pathologies. Information about the genome will help to select effective treatment. The introduction of gene therapy for the treatment of diseases associated with disruption of the structure of DNA. Many hereditary diseases are still considered incurable. Gene therapy aimed at restoring damaged areas of the DNA directly into the human body and it is not far off.
