Everyone at one time or another tries to find the winning combination to living longer, healthier, and aging with grace. While death is inevitable, we can at least find ways to live fuller, more agile lives throughout all our years.
Emerging technologies give hope that healthcare can solve some of the world’s most challenging health-related issues. And, patient-focused healthcare research has enhanced our ability to create technologies that solve real-world problems. There’s a lot to look forward to! Here are five remarkable facts about the future of healthcare.
While age-related diseases, ability changes, and cognitive functions change as we get older, health-related technologies are enabling us as a society to find more ways of moving even as we age.
The orthopedic industry is particularly invested in mobility technologies, not only for proper aging but also precision aging. No matter what our bodies may experience as we age, the orthopedic industry looks to improve that functionality so that we can continue living happy and mobile lives.
While the health industry continues to bring extraordinary advancements, we are still looking for smart ways to keep our bodies healthy, moving, and functional even as we age. Naturally, there are emerging technologies that are helping us to move better, and they are also allowing orthopedic surgeons more options when it comes to restoring your mobility function and movement.
As a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and sports doctor, I am acutely aware of new modalities that can be used in this industry. Not only is this my passion, but I also believe that keeping track of these emerging technologies is vital for orthopedic growth and is a service that we should provide for our patients.
