Watching sci-fi movies and TV shows has whet our appetite for amazing technology to make our lives better and sickness a thing of the past, so here's SWAG's list of futuristic medical devices and advances that we wish were available ASAP.

  Nanorobots

Nanorobots malta,  This sounds like a brilliant idea and makes incision-free surgery all the more plausible. At a quarter of a millimetre in diameter, nanorobots are basically microscopic devices that go into the body and carry out procedures without the need for human intervention. There have already been trials carried out (not on humans), but it’ll be a long while until they’ll be widely used in the way that we’d like. The robots are too small to have battery packs, so OctoMag technology is used - electromagnets are placed around a patient and depending on the directional force of these magnets, the nanorobots are pushed and pulled through the body.

  Food in pill form

Food in pill form malta,  This is far from a new idea. Cartoons from the '60s like The Jetsons, have depicted this potentially speedy meal years ago. Our health depends greatly on the food we consume. The saying ‘you are what you eat’ didn’t fall out of thin air. When we’re in a hurry, many of us turn to junk food – which is awfully bad for us. If we could just pop a pill (ideally reinforced with vitamins) and feel full without consuming  mountain of calories, we think we’d all be better off. Not only will we benefit from fewer calories, but we’d also have to cook less, saving us money. These handy pills would be brilliant for developing countries too. Think of all the people who would benefit from them. Sounds like a win-win situation to us.

  Incision-free surgery

Incision-free surgery malta,  Although surgery practices have come a long way, there are some things we still can’t get away from, like healing time and scarring. What we mean by ‘incision-free surgery’ is not making any cuts at all during a procedure, regardless of the type of surgery required. Not only will be patient be more comfortable after the operation, but there would be a lesser risk of infection, bleeding and healing time. The ultimate feat would be using lasers that can do all this internally, similar to the LASIK eye surgery process, especially in a surgery booth or pod that houses a multitude of tools that efficiently fix whatever is ailing its patient. A pod already does exist, but it only goes as far as reading the body’s temperature, weight, BMI and blood pressure. Impressive, but not quite enough.

  Bionic organs

Bionic organs malta,  The shortage of vital organs for transplanting is a worldwide crisis. Having an inexhaustible supply of vital organs would save many people a lot of suffering - as well as put a stop to the illegal trade in organs. Some artificial organs already exist, like limbs and recently, hearts (albeit temporary). Advancement in this technology to include parts like lungs, eyes, kidneys and livers would be a godsend to thousands of people.

  Diagnostic scanner

Diagnostic scanner  malta,   Star Trek ’s medical tricorder is a hand held scanner that diagnosed a patient’s condition within a few moments, and we think this should become a real thing. There’s something called a Scanadu Scout that is already available, but that only goes as far as reading simple vital signs. Just think: wouldn't all men rejoice at the option of having a simple scan to determine prostate problems, rather than an invasive probe? Right, lads?

  Smart microchips

Smart microchips malta,  Films and television have dealt with microchips implanted under the skin extensively. Typically used to monitor the whereabouts of unfortunate or devous characters, microchips could be harnessed for more useful purposes, like detecting diseases. A personalised monitor that scans the body for changes in things like hormones, blood and all kinds of levels could prevent thousands of deaths and lead to early treatment of conditions. But for the sake of all humanity we hope these microchips don’t actually lead to our government controlling our minds, because you know, that’s not nice.

  Anti-bleeding gel

Anti-bleeding gel malta,  Isn’t it annoying when the smallest paper cut brings forth a silly amount of blood? It’s less silly when you’re faced with an uncontrollable arterial spurt. There have been many deaths resulting from simple deep wounds because the patient was too far away from medical help. Some type of instant anti-bleeding spray, cream or contraption would be invaluable in any first aid box. There is actually a prototype product called Veti-Gel, which claims to stop bleeding within seconds. The gel imitates the substance naturally created by the body that forms blood clots to clog wounds – but at a much faster rate. Lab tests have gone extremely well, so there’s hope that the product will be available sooner rather than later.

  A cure for hangovers

A cure for hangovers malta,  Why are we still suffering the consequences of a night of celebratory drinking? Not that we're encouraging alcoholism... but wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could just pop a pill or swallow a teaspoon of magic liquid, and feel renewed a few minutes later? There are products out there that help with the headaches and nausea, but nothing that is 100% effective. This holy grail of hangover cures is as elusive as a unicorn. We have a feeling there’s a conspiracy to keep the secret recipe under wraps to avoid more people driving under the influence. Without a dreaded hangover to discourage overzealous drinkers, the situation of drunk driving - and uncontrolled drinking or addiction - might escalate. So perhaps we don't want this invention after all.
