9 Emerging Devices that Will Disrupt Health Care
The Fellowship | May 21, 2019
Writers at Israel21c report that the latest annual MIXiii-Biomed Conference and Exhibition in Tel Aviv will reveal the newest technologies that could “disrupt the healthcare field.”
“Disruptive technologies are those that will bring significant value and benefit for patients by changing the current medical practice,” says Dr. Irit Yaniv, co-chair of the track with Dr. Ron Ginor, general partner at healthcare investment firm Orbimed.
“For example, if today we treat type 2 diabetes with medication and even insulin, the idea is to bring a device that changes this practice and works better than drugs. Or if today there is no effective treatment for patients with heart failure, disruptive technologies look for a better solution.”
