					Medical science continues to grow and change along with advancements in
technology. What once seemed like science fiction is now reality, and
more improvements are on the way. Seeing how far the medical field has
progressed gives scientists and researchers even more motivation to push
the limits and discover new breakthroughs. Here are a few of the latest
advancements in medical technology that are changing the way patients
receive healthcare.Replacing Bandages with GelEven with the best wound
care, the body takes time to heal cuts and lacerations. The use of
antibacterial gels and bandages has been used by doctors and mothers for
years. That may all change with Nexagon gel. Nexagon is a DNA-based
formula that can decrease healing time significant, in some cases healing
a wound five times faster than normal wound care procedures. When there
is a cut in the skin, the cells surrounding the cut begin to react to
heal the area. Unfortunately, the body also produces a protein that can
inhibit the healing process. Nexagon helps to shut off these proteins,
speeding the healing time considerably. Electronic Eyeglasses Make Life
EasierAs we age, our senses age with us. For most, this begins to become
more obvious when eyesight fades and glasses are needed see properly.
Bifocals are worn for those that have issues changing focus between long
distances and close up reading. Two types of lenses are fused together to
help with the transition between distances, leaving a distinctive line
between the two lenses. PixelOptic has a solution for faster, smoother
transitions. Using a thin layer of liquid crystal that responds to
electric currents, wearers can press a button on the side of the glasses
to change the focus as needed. The glasses also recognize the movement of
the head and change as the wearer looks up and down. Robotic Surgeries
Without DoctorsAny surgery presents risks for infection. Even operating
suites with the most aseptic techniques introduce this potential of
infection by using human doctors and nurses. Operating using robotic arms
has become a popular trend, allowing the physician to sit in another
room, manipulating the robot remotely, and completing the surgery. This
already cuts down on the risk for infection, but what if the doctor
wasn't necessary? Using robotic surgeons armed with ultrasound
technology, it may soon be a reality. The robot would be able to perform
the surgery alone, completely eliminating the possibility for infection
from inside the operating room. Whether the technology is currently in
place or just in the beginning stages of development, there is no doubt
that medical procedures have come a long way. With less invasive
surgeries, new methods of treatments, and a better understanding of how
the body works, medical technology has a broad new horizon.
