Injectable Sensors For Wireless Tracking Of Intra-Ocular Pressure For Glaucoma Sufferers

Proactive diagnostics is the name of the game for future health care.

Here is an excellent example for glaucoma sufferers.

Coming to think of it the same can be adapted for industrial equipment as well

You could literally inject or transport sensors to hard to reach areas and have them transmit data for monitoring and analysis for corrective action.

The Cloud, Sensors, Smart Phones and Predictive Diagnostics for Man and Machine

What a combination?

Take the following

  • The Cloud
  • Sensors (Temp, ElectroChemical, Optical, Pressure, Flow, vibration, sound etc.)
  • Smart Phones
  • Apps
  • Engineers and Dreamers

What do you have

  • Input data from sensors
  • Analysis in Apps
  • Storage in the Cloud
  • Diagnostic solutions on your Smart Phone

I believe we are just looking at the tip of the iceberg here.

Go ahead and Google whats happening at Barcelona with TI and ANT
