A lot of people ask me about the future of medicine and healthcare. What’s coming next, what about the future of radiology, genomics or health sensors. They ask me to make really sharp predictions. But instead of this, let’s do something else now. Let’s look back from 2050, and see what today’s healthcare included, what barbaric elements played an important role in today’s healthcare in the 2010s.
Please let me know if I missed something.

2020 – Human or Robotic Docs?
Nicky Ashwell was born without her right arm and now she got equipped with Steeper’s bebionic small hand. This seems to be one of the most sophisticated robotic prosthetics out there. For years, Touch Bionics has seemed to be in the forefront but now there are more competitors.
First UK user receives worlds most lifelike bionic hand: Nicky Ashwell becomes first UK user
Her bionic hand costs about $11,000 and has 337 mechanical parts and 14 precision grips. Its makers want to transform the lives of 3 million amputees. An excerpt from the article:
“I realized that I had been making life challenging for myself when I didn’t need to,” she continued. “The movements now come easily and look natural. I keep finding myself being surprised by the little things, like being able to carry my purse while holding my boyfriend’s hand.”
With such developments (cost goes down while functionalities improve), soon, all prosthetics will be as futuristic as Luke Skywalker’s bionic hand in the trailer of Star Wars Episode VII (at 00:45 in the video below).
I’m a science fiction movie geek therefore I never look for mistakes and errors in those movies. Although in some cases the errors are so obvious they might ruin the whole movie experience.
