Personalization, Prediction, Prevention, Participation:
Let’s go through each of the 4 P’s of future healthcare and see what new technology is able to contribute.
People are diverse – so is their personal health.
Different DNA’s, different immune systems, living in different parts of the world – to name just a few.
The objective is to adapt healthcare to your personal health system and what is best for you.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence give us new ways to predict health events and enable the foundation of prevention.
This means not only taking actions to prevent a particular disease or symptom, but also contributing to live a healthy lifestyle and prevent a whole range of risk factors, which might impair your health.
To be at the center one’s healthcare treatment sounds obvious, but it is often not.
Clinicians are often under time pressure and treatments are often complex.
The patient needs access to information, self-care and able to take ownership of his or her health.
Unfortunately, stress has become a common place for millions of people all over the world.
In the U.S., 49% of adults have reported experiencing at least one major stress trigger in the past year, according to a study conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health.
The impact of Stress on our physical health has just as much on our mental health.
What if there was a device that could handle stress?
Stop, Breathe and Relax:
When you become too stressful, people advise you to stop, breathe and relax.
iBreve helps you to enhance your stress resilience by analyzing breathing patterns with Machine Learning.
iBreve, the Healthcare WT Innovation World Cup® 2017/18 finalist, can help you to instantly calm down with clinically proven breathing exercises and also monitors your stress level.
The word iBreve is a combination of “I breathe” and “Eve” – as it’s initial focus is on women’s health & well-being.
They are also working on a male version of the device that would be fitted around the waist line.
The iBreve was tested on several people to make sure it is helpful in being a stress management tool.
For example, its makers monitored breathing patterns of office workers and one of the findings was that they were able to correlate ‘holding the breath’ with certain tasks like opening the e-mail inbox.
Wearables Could Monitor Stress, Risk and Physical Demands:
The iBreve team are working on the treatment side to best find how to help people in stress related situations.
They have included breathing games, mindfulness exercises & customizable reminders in the iBreve app.
They have said the iBreve could be a wearable to use at work.
“Although they see very positive results of people using iBreve at work, they want to clinically quantify the extent of stress reduction.
As part of the EIT Health program they are working on measuring the impact that iBreve has on the user’s well-being & stress level.
To accomplish their mission, they are currently looking for hospitals and patients willing to join them for a 2-month trial period.
Their long-term goals are to help people who suffer from anxiety or respiratory diseases.
They want to make daily breathing exercises more fun, motivate them to exercise and enable them to monitor their improvements.
Sounds like another health product to look out for.
This technology will lead to other possibilities with reducing stress around the world.
