Wow a Glove that can instruct doctors if they are doing wrong or right for e.g. “If you apply too much pressure on the examined tissue, then the buzzer goes on’’. Oh I know you won’t believe me however Glove Tricorder by Med Sensation is efficient of doing this. This Glove helps Doctors to diagnose breast cancer, enlarged Kidneys and few other sub-dermal issues.
This glove will eventually allow patients to diagnosis their own illnesses. The glove interface allows for data from the physical exam to be a component of automated diagnosis, which at times can mean the difference between a patient living and dying.
The gloves currently contain a number of sensors including pressure feedback loops and accelerometers. Company is also planning to add ultrasound pads to the tips of the glove this will help doctors to see inside the breast as they manipulate the tissue. The project is part of the graduate studies program at the Singularity University. It was founded by a Harvard medical student, Andrew Bishara, and a pair of engineers, Elishai Ezra and Fransiska Hadiwidjana
The Med Sensation’s goal is to bring this Glove in to Medical Education settings and teaching doctors to improve their examination skills. Seriously this innovation will certainly improve our medical day to day life with a major scope of cureness for every disease. “Soon everyone will have a glove that can be used to assess a sports injury or can be used to do self-clinical breast exams.

In the future we will be able to augment a human’s ability to diagnosis illness, by adding sensors such as ultrasound probes that will be able to integrate the data and provide real-time assessment of heart valve abnormalities, abdominal pain, and much more without having to go to medical facility,” as the founders of this Glove said and so do we hope.
