Emerging Health Technologies: Diagnosing, Designing and Controlling Our Well-Being
This event is the latest in our member-led forums’ Art and Science of Well-Being series.
Ben Hwang from Profusa will discuss the future of continuous, remote monitoring data using implantable biosensor technology and how it is poised to transform wellness, medical intervention, health care delivery and patient outcomes. Mary Lou Jepsen from Openwater has created a device that can enable us to see inside our brains or bodies in great detail. With this comes the promise of new abilities to diagnose and treat disease and well beyond—communicating with thought alone.
