The future is Nano-Medicine.
The application of nano-technology to the
monitoring, diagnosing, prevention and
treatment of diverse diseases is Nano-Medicine.
This new evolving area will revolutionize
medical sciences in the near-future. Nano-medicine
applications will address problems in the areas of patient monitoring,
pacemakers, biochips, medical sensors, insulin
pumps, drug delivery systems and glucose
In future, diagnostic nano-machines could
monitor the human body internally and in
real-time. They may be equipped with wireless
transmitters and will send out warnings when
changes in the chemical imbalance are
detected. Nano-machines could be planted in
the nervous system to monitor brain-wave
(EEG), and other vital signals and functions.
Another exciting area would be implanted drug
delivery systems. At a higher level of the
application we may see in future nano-robots
acting as mini-surgeons, in the level of
Just imagine what this technology will do to
Pain management, monitoring and treatment.
