Let’s say you or someone you know need surgery or medical care for a condition. In that circumstance, it’s more probable than not that developments in medical technology will increase the likelihood of a positive result.

Through the ages, medical advancements have improved our capacity to treat complicated ailments. These include the creation of the first antibiotics in the 1920s, the first organ transplant three decades later, and the first smallpox vaccination in the 18th century.

The healthcare industry is being revolutionized by technology advancements, which are bringing forth even greater advancement in the 21st century.

Here are 5 Inventions that we found in the online ITEX exhibition

DR. GURUSWAMY PRABHAKARAN AND TEAM FROM AIMST UNIVERSITY –  MYCHOL^TM : PROTOTYPE, DUAL-USE, LIVE, COLD-CHAIN-FREE, ORAL VACCINE FOR CHOLERA AND TRAVELLERS’ DIARRHOEA

MyCholTM is a prototype, first-of-its-kind oral vaccination that protects against cholera and traveler’s diarrhea brought on by Vibrio cholerae and Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), respectively. It is live, cold-chain free, and oral. It was thoroughly examined using three different animal models. In the neonatal mouse colonization experiment, it demonstrated increased colonization potential, and in the ligated rabbit ileal loop assay, it was nonreactogenic. In challenge experiments, mice given the vaccination had greater antibody titers that completely protected against the LT toxin, avoiding diarrhea. MyCholTM is less expensive and safeguards travelers from diarrhoeal infections as well as the world’s lowest billion children.

CHANG, YU MEI AND TEAM FROM ASIA EASTERN UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY- HUMAN-GUIDED REHABILITATION SYSTEM WITH DYNAMIC FEEDBACK

There is a dynamic feedback rehabilitation system that is human-guided. The human-guided rehabilitation system has a wearable gadget and a database. An optimal rehabilitation trajectory parameter is included in the database. The wearable device has a calibration module, an image module, a processing module, a plurality of static sensing modules, a plurality of dynamic sensing modules. For a person who has undergone rehabilitation, the static sensing modules and the dynamic sensing modules, respectively, can collect a variety of static coordinate parameters and a variety of dynamic trajectory parameters. In order to provide guidance, the calibration module may adjust the optimal rehabilitation trajectory parameter.

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DR TARITA BINTI TAIB FROM UITM – CLINICAL BENEFITS OF COMBINED STICHOPUS HORRENS AND CHANNA STRIATUS (AKUARIZ SKIN EASE) IN PATIENT WITH STASIS ECZEMA

Stichopus horrens and channa striatus extracts are contained in skin ease cream, while stichopus horren extract is contained in the cleanser. Cleaning the legs prior to cream application three times a day for two weeks is a clinical intervention. (Control: cleansing legs three times a day for two weeks with cetrime 1% lotion prior to vaseline application) skin ease also contained some plant-based ingredients: leaf extracts from camellia sinensis & rosmarinus officinalis; charmomilla recutita flower extract; root extracts of polygonum cispidatum, cenrella asiatica, scutellaria baicalensis, aqua, glycerin, and petrolatum were contained in the product’s cream formula as the basis.

LAI CHIN LUN AND TEAM FROM ASIA EASTERN UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY – SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COMPENSATING BINOCULAR VISION DEFICIENCY

Using numerous image capture devices positioned at eye level to take multiple pictures of a scene, each picture having at least one stereo item in it, and each picture incorporating a base picture, is one way to compensate for binocular vision deficit. Based on the disparity and the distance between the various image capture units, an image processor determines the distance between the stereo object and the eye level from the several pictures.

AP. TS. DR. LIEW KAI BIN AND TEAM FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CYBERJAYA – CHOC-ING AWAY AT NON-COMPLIANCE: THE QUETIAPINE FUMARATE MEDICATED CHOCOLATE FOR SCHIZOPHRENIA PATIENTS

The creation is a patient-friendly medicated chocolate for schizophrenia patients that contains quetiapine fumarate. The device ensures that schizophrenia patients take their medications as prescribed. By utilizing an oven to melt cocoa butter replacement at 50°C, medicinal chocolate was created. Quetiapine fumarate powder, soy lecithin, and other ingredients were added and well combined. It was then cast into a silicone mold, let to set at ambient temperature, and then kept in an HDPE container. The product’s dimensions were consistent, measuring 4.611g in weight, 25.327mm in diameter, and 12.856mm in height. It had an adequate hardness of 10.985kg, a low friability of 0.026%, a quick disintegration time of 6.34–9.21 minutes, and a melting temperature of 34–36°C.
