Greetings from Germany

Translated Excerpts from the Site..

MEDICAL GLASSES

Short description of the idea

"Medical Glasses" is an app for the emergency medical service based on Google Glasses. The application is designed to make patient care safer and more efficient.

Description of Idea

With our ideas we want to support the emergency services personnel, especially in two ways: on the one hand we want to do at the right time and the right information available to give to others through complete documentation and a video connection to retrospectively demanded emergency medical team to the legal security. These carry the crews of ambulance and emergency vehicle use Google Glasses with our software "Medical Glasses". "Medical Glasses" is to put in stressful situations the rescuer all the information available and so prevent problems, enhance the rescue chain and ultimately save lives. You are curious what "Medical Glasses" offers everything? Just look it out in our presentation, in which you can find all the features listed and explained again. Unsure what Google Glasses is again and can? No worry, here again a little refresher:  Google Glasses.

Strategy

Our next steps:

The first step is to write the software. Although we both have programming experience, however, is "Medical Glasses" too complex to allow us to realize the idea itself in a manageable time. Here we hope to gain allies who can help us technically. Failing this, would be another way of equity, potential investors, crowd funding and of course the prize money received may outsource the programming only once and later to bring programmers into the boat.
Is our idea in program format, the next step would be to gain an operational area as a partner for a practice test. From the practical test, we hope for a lot of attention, we would generate an innovation in the emergency service, the experience can we feed into the further development and evidence that proved our idea into practice.
The last step is the actual sale of "Medical Glasses". Ideally, we have the practice test generates an enormous attention in the industry and the benefits of our proven product. Our business is to advise rescue service areas in the use of "Medical Glasses", customize the software customization to local conditions and assist in the implementation.
The final step is licensing the software with monthly usage fees to us. The fees should be based on the size of the rescue service area. The target group is the local authorities, they have the obligation to maintain structures such as the ambulance service under the "municipal services".Why the idea to me fits:

We are both volunteers in a large organization and passionate hobbyists. Julian is doing extra training to become a paramedic. Accordingly, it is exciting for us to combine our knowledge and experience from both areas in an idea.

What problem is solved?

The quality of information management during operations but varied greatly. The risk is high that sometimes go down on vital information in stress. Here we come in, Medical Glasses makes it possible for the ambulance already can view the collected findings of the ambulance crew during the approach, in case of doubt a video connection to make and thus have to intervene during the journey. The representation of vital signs in the field of view of Glasses with alarm function ensures that all keep track and nothing goes down. Databases with information about medicines and standardized algorithms for the treatment of specific diseases round out the comprehensive supply of information. Because knowledge is not power but a life-saving benefit for the patient in the case.

What are the advantages to other products / services of the submitted idea?

With our idea we are entering new territory, such an extensive assistance system, which the individual parts of the rescue chain linked does not yet exist. We see our advantages in the fact that we can scale our product desired and can respond to the relevant requirements of customers. Through the benefit of wearables like Google Glasses fall extensive sales or installations on the vehicles from the Savior has his hands free, has all the information in the visual field and the flow of information on a central server allows accurate control of the data. The customer to decide how best wishes to use in his operational area Medical Glasses, so we can always guarantee a perfect solution!

Nanotechnology in the Air

Nanotechnology in the Air


       Last week I was on an airplane reading the magazine of Alaska Airlines. One of the articles that kept my attention was about Nanotechnology by Sally James. Usually I just look at the link and share with you. This time it is quite unpractical because you need to see the whole magazine in order to get to the article. So, this is something that it is very well written that it really makes me feel  happy, because 3 years ago I went to a congress about the topic and it was first hand engineers and scientists with  fascinating research, and now its applications are more visible to the general public.
       Big Potential in going small. The  life-changing impact of nanotechnology. That is the title of what a small-scale Revolution is going on. Then Nanospyder by Volkswagen is the first image in the article, you can appreciate a futuristic shaped car and the caption says that it would use nanotechnology that will be 100 recyclable. Other wonderful examples are; 
A Quantum Dot is used in flat-screen televisions and solar panels.
 Maybe your socks have nano-size particles of silver to kill smelly bacteria.
 There are bicycles so lightweight nowadays because the use of ultra strong carbon nano tubes in the carbon fibers that are use to manufacture its frames.
 Suits of Armor like bulletproof vests are tailored in Canada. 
Nano materials are being used in many batteries to make them smaller.
      For  the near future we can think about machines the size of molecules.They can be embedded within the human body, detecting diabetes and helping to prevent heart disease.
 Inside a living  body can be gold as a cancer killer. 
      It is so tinny a nano material that can go through a cell membrane to deliver healing therapies.
 Robert Langer at MIT is helping to design a tiny package with genetic messengers to help to prevent cancer at cellular level. Pat Stayton at the University of Washington, Dr. Anil Sood at the University of Texas and other scientists at various universities as well as the private sector are using nano scale materials. We are at the edge of a new way of doing things.

To Julian,
  "The Paradigms are shared by many thinkers, there is time, space, opportunity, and a precise moment to contribute with our ideas" -Perla Gutierrez

The MIT Technology Review  just released a document. A BUSINESS REPORT about;

  The Big Question: Can Technology  Fix Medicine? 

Here some snippets that show you the amount of people that share our Vision 
Medical data is a hot spot for venture investing and product innovation. The goal: better care. 100,000 the number of health apps available for smartphones.
“Much more precise medicine is possible. And I for one
want it. Because our smartphones are on us 24/7, we can
start to do much more.” —Vinod Khosla

More Phones, Fewer Doctors.  VC legend Vinod Khosla believes that medicine will go mobile and most
Doctors will be out of a job.

Data Analysis: IBM Aims to Make Medical Expertise a Commodity. Big Blue thinks its Jeopardy! Champion Watson can make money by offering health-care providers new expertise without hiring new staff.

“Physicians are too burdened on paperwork and
squeezed on revenue to keep up with the latest literature.”
—Lynda Chin Professor of Genomic Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center

The New Medical Data Ecosystem:
Medical data is being captured today from many sources. Pulling it together and studying what it means is the next challenge.
Environmental Data, Sensors can pick up behavioral information. Mapping, location and weather data adds insight into other triggers
Mobile Health Data:
100,000-plus mobile health apps, plus wearable devices that measure activity and bodily function, offer a constant read on patient health.
Electronic Medical Records:
Digital records include lab and test results, drug prescriptions, and doctors’ reports
Family Health History:
Public Health Data, Insight into community, health patterns from federal and state data
Genomic Data:
Less expensive genome, sequencing offers insight into the role genetics may play
Insurance Claims Data:
Trends in drug and treatment usage, Analytic algorithms and predictive modeling mine the layers of data for patterns and insight.
Patients:
More precise and personalized diagnosis and care based on a holistic view
Doctors:
Decision support tools could help quickly evaluate the best treatments
Researchers:
Detailed information from many patients, along with other data, could lead to new insights into
Disease and treatment:
Mobile Health-Monitoring Devices
There’s been an explosion in smart devices that measure and monitor various bodily functions.
Data in Action:
Data is helping one of the country’s leading hospitals solve tough medical questions.

“I am concerned that it’s all too easy to see the data and
Say, ‘I've been doing big-data analysis for Target and now
I can do it for medicine.’ That turns out not to be true.
You really need to know something about medicine. If
Statistics lie, then big data can lie in a very, very big way.”

$24.4 billion Federal incentives paid to doctors and hospitals for adopting EHRs.

Google WEB SEARCH GIANT:
A new Android app platform is Google’s second attempt at building a health business
Vital statistic: There are more than 40,000 health apps available for Android phones, but only a handful have been downloaded by more than 500 users
