No Evidence for the Mental Curing APP

Depression-App-1444834645808

Summary:

Is it work for curing the mental illness by app? Indeed, there is no evidence showing this workable. National Health Service had done a research that examine 6 apps which disclose none of them have the healing ability.As for healthcare app market, it increases twice as the previous year. However, most of them have not been taken the testing or report about these apps. Most of them, indeed, are just a tool for relaxing. For the future, should we set up law for it?

My Opinions:

What is the standard of a healthcare app? Is it strict enough to monitoring them? Here, come to our question. In the internet-world, we all relay on the app, including medical use, shopping. However, we need to set up some law for monitoring the effect. Why? It prevents that misleading the patient in order to allow them to get the real medical action immediately.

Telemedicine for Emergence

1447278364740

Summary:

The new innovation is for helping the patient who are in an emerging case which without doctor. This is a simple app in phone that allow video call to the doctor.It give the immediate scene for the doctor to teaching u how to help the patient. Moreover, it is a another helpful tools for the medical officer preparing the what they need before the patient’s arrival. For the healthcare, it allow the citizens to take some advice when they need the medical officer.

Opinion:

So far, it is a brilliant idea for tackle the emerging case. However, as for the law, it is difficult to deal with the law when their is a people death. Besides, the privacy of the patient is another big problem for it. Other than these, many basic check will be required too, for examples, blood pressure and heart-beating rate. It requires more complicated tasks for us to solve.

The New Detecter of Cancers

bioinformatics

Summary:

Scientists at the University of Colorado Cancer Centre has proposed a new tool for matching drugs to disease effectively. The new tools, Kinase Addiction Ranker, can predict which genetic coding are going to driving into the cancer cell. It allows the doctor to introduce the best kinase inhibitor to keep those gene silent. As for the prediction, there is two bioinformatic bank for pairing the genes with the drugs to eliminating the dangerous disease. The first one is for the gene, and then the other one is for the drug. People may ask” Why it require two bank of bioinformatic?”. As to the answer, the bank for drugs is for a safety precautions which give no allowance for the inhibitor for inhibit other genes.

My opinions:

The Kinase Addition Ranker is the front line in the battlefield with cancer. You can Image that there is a super solider which can collect enemies’ data . This action is for helping you to prevent the upcoming enemy, cancer cell. Thanks to the bioinformatic coding, we now can eliminating the dangerous by comparing A,T,C and G. The bank will give you the solution for silence of gene. As for everyone, precaution is forever better than curing. No pain , big gain.

Help for a Paralysed Man

PhyCompulsory_&_Elective_Part-2016_Revised_Curriculum-20130724

Summary:

Useless, powerless , helpless ,these words, always tell a paralysed man that you are just a rubbish. Is that no hope for them to become back a normal one? imaging that you are paralysed, you properly feel that hope is no longer with you anymore. However, the great neuro-scientists have developed a mind-machine interface to “teach” a paralysed man how to walk. For the theory of the mind-machine, it is simple to measure the encephalogram of the patients’ brain. Through the computer, the computer can translate the signal to messenger for the knee and trigger the controllable muscle activity. This mind-machine without any harmful injection of electrode which is just sticking the electrodes on the skins.

My opinion:

Scientist build the new world for the paralysed man. In the way for inventing this machine, it is difficult to design how to direct and detect the signal of walking. As for a paralysed man , he has already lost the feeling of walking for a long time. It is difficult to define the EEG which is walking EEG. Besides, it is difficult to direct the specialised muscular movement. It is completely different from the robotic rehabilitation because it counts on the patients’ muscles. Signal transferring from brain to computer and back to muscle, is much difficult as the transformation is too complicated.
