Health Sense 2040 In 2040 design will reduce over demand on the public health service using stimulation of the senses.
1. Three Tired Health Service: Health system is moving from treatment to prevention. The main reason is that the the health system in UK today is broken and unsustainable. Plus, with technolodgy development it is fissible. The majority of the people will use this tecnolodgy for self treatmnet. A middle class will still enjoy the benefits of a personal realtion with the doctor. Fewer people will be able to travel for medical tourism-possibly to eastern countries, the source of the rising alternative treatment- enjoying facilites similar to a luxurious hotel.
2. Rapid Recovery Pods: Manipulation of sleeping experience is one of the things coming. By this, hospital recovery will be not a dull procedure, but an exciting experience. Recovery Pods could be an implementation of this.
3. Remote Monitoring & Self Treatment: As said before, technology will make remote monitoring and self treatment. In this visualization, hi tech contact lenses can detect health issues and transmit signal to the patient's doctor, who could be anywhere. A healing device, a glove in this case, could heal wounds and other minor health problems.
