Shrinking Medical Devices

Excellent update.  The medical device market is definitely focusing on smaller, portable designs that need small size components and low power.  Good overview of sensor technology used in these applications.  Thanks.

Great article.  I especially like the discussion on lower power.  As medical device sizes shrink, the demand for more mobility will increase which will then prompt the demand for low voltage and low power requirements for longer battery lives.

Shrinking medical devices will help to provide the advancements of modern technology to an aging population to access medical service both in and out of the hospital environment. It will be great if sensor generated data, of critical patient requiring frequent attention, is made available to doctor on their smart phones. This will help doctor to treat patient from anywhere and at anytime.

The implications go far beyond simple sensors taken in pill form for diagnosis. Very informative.
