Currently, the standard to conduct tests to determine bladder diseases are invasive tests that jam stuff up in peeholes. Thanks to the advancing medical tech, there may be a better way soon: a wireless near infrared spectroscopy device strapped right above your bladder.
Using an NIRS device and its software measured "the differences in the amount of light shone through the skin to—and returning from—the bladder wall," which let researchers look at micro-circulation in the bladder to see things like changing hemoglobin concentrations and how much oxygen is in the blood. Hence, no jamming necessary.
If Maslow’s hierarchy of needs could be updated by Maslow himself, he’ll add Wi-Fi right at the bottom as the most basic human need. We’ve relied a lot on mobile data to see us through this far. Now we don’t have to anymore. Here’s PortaWiFi and why we think it actually makes some good sense. Read more
