In a world where disease has become increasingly manageable and avoidable, it is undeniable that technology and innovation has played a major part in this. We have seen technology step in and help prevent disease. For example, the sKan device can detect skin cancer. The low-cost device uses temperature sensors to detect areas of tissue which heat up faster, a possible sign of cancerous cells. Innovation has not just helped us to identify the onset of disease, but also to help those suffering from illnesses. An example of this is WalkAid. This is a wearable which is designed to help those with Parkinson’s disease walk. The device works using a visual cue device and tactile insoles. i-PROGNOSIS goes one step further and combines aspects of both these inventions, by detecting the onset of Parkinson’s disease.
