Did you know you have a "breathprint"? Yep, and this device could save your life by reading it.
http://healthtechinsider.com/2016/01/21/nano-sensors-sniff-gastric-cancer/
Perhaps you’ve read that dogs can be trained to detect cancer. Various tumors produce specific alkalines and smelly compounds that dogs — with their ability to discriminate odors as discrete as possibly parts per trillion — can detect the cancer from smelling breath or the air above urine. Several institutions and research labs around the …

Need continuous ECG/EKG monitoring? Or just like it? http://healthtechinsider.com/2016/01/20/constant-ecg-monitoring-t-shirt-video/
Have you been to the ER lately? Or gone for a physical or checkup where someone said, “Let’s get you hooked up”? I was in the ER for a minor incident recently (it turned out to be no big deal, but all were concerned) and because I was uncomfortable and fully dressed, getting me undressed …

Did you know that Alphabet, Google's parent company, has a new division called Verily to explore new health tech?
http://healthtechinsider.com/2015/12/28/google-seeks-patent-needle-free-blood-drawing/
Drawing blood isn’t particularly pleasant at best for the patient, but interest in mobile and wearable devices to check and measure blood-borne biomarkers may make the process faster, easier, and unobtrusive. People with diabetes, for example, often need to check their blood glucose levels four to eight times a day. A method to make that process …

Getting a good night’s sleep is elusive for many of us. Equally bothersome at times is finding peace and quiet when we’d like a break in noisy environments to read, relax, meditate, or even take a nap. Sleep aids of various types are a large and growing industry and noise-cancelling headsets have created their own …

You really do have a choice, you know. You can ignore the Internet of Things (IoT). Just dismiss it as a simple extension of existing technology. You can take the stance that you'll never need or use a smart watch or fitness bracelet. And hey, if you didn't need a refrigerator that talked to you…

Would it help you stay hydrated if your water bottle glowed at you if you weren't drinking enough? http://healthtechinsider.com/2016/01/11/smart-stylish-water-bottles-glow-video/
Last year, Alfred Poor asked if people really need to spend $50 for a bottle that reminds them to drink water in his article about the Trago smart water bottle. Well, it appears the enthusiasm for techie and stylish hydration aids hasn’t waned; in fact it’s growing. Hidrate, Inc.’s HidrateSpark, built for a Google Entrepreneurs Startup event, …

From the battlefield to first responders. 
http://healthtechinsider.com/2016/01/07/stop-blood-flow-stat/
Compressing a wound to stop blood flow and maintain pressure can save a life in the event of an acute injury such as a gunshot wound. Even without medical training, just watch a few TV shows or movies and you’ll understand the importance of stopping the flow of spurting blood. But what do you do if the …

Here's a handy, free app that could save someone's life.
http://healthtechinsider.com/2015/12/31/find-closest-defibrillator-now/
While there are no universally accepted annual rates of cardiac arrest on the global level, one group estimates approximately 7 million incidents annually, with 50,000 in France alone. The latest (2015) American Heart Association estimate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the U.S. is 326,000 per year. Whatever the exact number, the reality is that when …

Did you ever think there could be a market for your used gum? http://healthtechinsider.com/2016/01/04/save-used-gum-medical-science-video/
Are you ready for this? Used chewing gum may play an important role in the development of biosensors. It turns out, according to the American Chemical Society (ACS), that many sensors used on and in the human body to detect various phenomena are stiff solids that don’t do well when flexibility is required. They can also …
