When fitbits, and other devices actually use sensors to transmit energies to give biofeedback where they are function then fashionable you would have a healthier population working with the limits of their BMI, maybe not specifically but definite in terms of within that realm for monitoring themselves and having data driven at the hands of the consumer and independently individualized by care within the health and medical industry.
We had a Bass Innovation Symposium recently that is a biannual event. In it we covered things like 3D printing of whole sections of brain fluid for neurosurgery at UTSouthwestern, and I am a heavy advocate of making brain imaging as frequent and cost effective as getting a dental check up with scans from your local dentist. In the concussion industry, there are tools that can track eye movement to determine whether or not you have had a concussion, whether it is in the sports medicine field or close thereof, and at what severity based on those components, and the same occurs for pilots with fatigue from long duration flights, so while it serves as a first step in portability of brain scanning, having people have access to fMRI to be able to see their brains in development over time, the way that you would with teeth, is a valuable tool that would show your brain prints and sometimes would be able to determine what types of activity has occurred over time, whether it is TBI, normal development, aging, cognition, the possibilities become endless when the public has access.
I would love to see the day when the public has more access to air travel to explore the world, same for outside of lower earth orbit, increased research in the space incubated environment, & be able to read brain scans in real time and assisted with robotic surgeries aboard the international space station. I could be floating in space carrying on my normal daily routine for working, and have to pause to make decisions in real time from a computer screen as to how to assist brain surgery. We are starting telemedicine as a way to reach rural populations or whatever laws are in place in those states that require that the doctors must meet the patients first and then can telemedicine their time together.
Psychologists that report behavioral changes in who they are investigating rarely use brain imaging unless it is for cognition research or neuropsychological data, and even then, for neuropsychological assessments, whether or not that data is shared or if the neuropsychologist or psychologist finds a disturbance in the assessment without an imaging mechanism, having general clinical psychology, or neuropsychology, sometimes would be transferred to a psychiatrist or neuropsychiatrist which we now have subspecialties for neurologists and psychiatrists that have overlap and sometimes competitive applications for treating their patients disorders, technology in all of it's glory has made us faster, smarter, and often dumber depending on what we use it for, time wasters, yet I do not think that practicing evidence based medicine or showing data from brainwave activities that could potentially save or extend a person's life into the next decades, with the possibility of translation individualized medicine and aesthetic life extending biomarkers for genetic rejuvenation, stem cell research, and tissue implants, whether it is post-Parkinson's diagnosis, or a preventive measure for Alzheimer's, neural interface developments for rewiring activity, EEG specific frequency alterations, having the nanotechnology field capable of powering lighter safer materials inside and outside of the body and brain to analyze or assist with it's functioning, & we are seeing the streaming of virtual reality being used for gaming and treatments of certain PTSD or other anxiety disorders to remap the brain back to a normal focal point in specific areas.
I am increasing my exposure to #traininglikeanastronaut & also finding ways to combine the space industry with rapidly developing increased quality of life here on earth.
