Virtual reality (VR) refers to computer technologies that utilize virtual reality headsets to generate realistic images and sensations—with the goal of replicating a real environment, or creating an imaginary setting. A research article describes VR as an “immersive, interactive experience generated by a computer.”

Smartphones now have the capability to accurately test for sperm count, led by a team of researchers at Harvard who work on developing new tools for patient care. According to the World Health Organization, low sperm count is one of the primary markers for male infertility, which is a globally neglected health issue.
The scientists have developed a rapid infertility diagnostic tool that attaches to a smartphone; the attachment itself is compatible with an app created to count the numbers of sperm and measure motility: markers for infertility. While the team at Harvard is not the first to develop an at-home fertility test designed for men, they are the first to successfully determine sperm concentration in addition to motility.
Recently emerging advancements in the field of medical technology have offered new hope to those who have historically suffered from profound hearing loss.
Specific hearing implants—including cochlear and/or auditory brainstem implants—have ‘revolutionized’ the overall management of hearing loss and impairment. While these surgically implanted devices do not actually amplify sounds like conventionally created hearing aids, they instead provide users with a sense of sound through direct stimulation of the hearing nerves, or the part of the brain involved with hearing.
While the field of technology is incontrovertibly experiencing rapid progression, recent publications regarding electronic reporting demonstrate that there is still room for significant development and growth.
Data has confirmed that capturing real-time reports of cancer patients’ symptoms between physician visit has concrete, tangible health benefits—yet cancer researchers have expressed that technological and financial barriers hinder doctors from a widespread adoption of the practice.

Diabetic eye disease, formally known as Diabetic Retinopathy, is a complication resulting from diabetes that affects the eyes. Caused by damage to the blood vessels of the retina—the light-sensitive tissue found at the back of the eye—diabetic retinopathy can ultimately lead to irreversible blindness. Statistics reveal that the disease will affect up to 80% of those who have had diabetes for over two decades.

The wave of healthcare technology is surging into view, akin to a tsunami: as it rapidly rushes towards the landscape of medicine, the cost of tools are dropping at the same rate that options are growing.
At the Cleveland Clinic’s annual Medical Innovations Summit last week, Daniel Kraft—an oncologist, and chair of medicine and neuroscience at Singularity University—asked his audience a critical question: are the right platforms and infrastructure in place to catch the proverbial ‘wave’?
