In case you were not able to attend Brunch this is a recording of Susan Taylor of Scripps Health discussing Gadgets, Gizmos and Good Health. Click on the image directly above to listen to the recording.
Listen to Susan Taylor of Scripps Health talk about all the technological advances that they’re testing in clinical trials or have already been approved by the FDA to improve your health. A gadget can be sparkly and monitor the number of steps you take each day. It may look like it’s doing a lot of things, but we Scripps won’t use it unless they see results that confirm these gadgets and gizmos actually improve your health. Susan discusses a multitude of devices that are being used for diabetes, cancer, heart disease and sleep. Some of this technology is implanted in the body. The patient never feels it, but it allows doctors to monitor patients no matter where they are anywhere in the world. The intent of this of technology is to promote better health, and help people live longer, healthier and more productive lives, at a lower cost. Some of this technology is in fact, life-saving.
