The potential for applications in this area is so expansive and so high utility, especially for those patients for which it's difficult to travel or to facilitate care in hard to reach areas. What exactly will MEDRC's role be in terms of helping some of these developments reach commercialization?

Gaining Momentum

Point-of-care is a trend that's definitely gaining momentum. At the Freescale Technology Forum a few weeks ago, engineers demonstrated a biometric bed, showing how it could be used to monitor the blood glucose level of a 52-year-old patient who had eaten too much cake the night before. A few years ago, I also heard about a man who was awakened by paramedics at his home after his implantable defibrillator recognized the signs of a heart problem and autonomously called the emergency room while he was sleeping. The point-of-care technology that's coming out is amazing. Maybe now the engineers will get some credit for their contributions to medicine.
