The healthcare industry is one of the most innovative fields in the world right now. From the kind of products to the kind of technology available, everything about the medtech startup world is changing for the better. Here are some of the most creative startups doing good in the world currently.

1. Clover Health 

One of the most ground breaking unicorn startups in the world, Clover Health is an insurance startup which works to use data science and improve the conditions of preventive medicine. With over 25,000 benefiting from its services, Clover Health hit the headlines when it recently secured an investment of $ 130 million from Google! The startup aims at improving the lives of people not only in the United States, but all over the world as well.

2. Sensible Baby 

Touted to be one of the major game changers of the baby monitoring industry, Sensible Baby was created with the aim of helping new parents breathe easy. While essentially similar to the functionalities of a standard baby monitor, the SmartOne device by Sensible Baby was launched so parents would not have to constantly worry about their child, especially due to the rising infant deaths through Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (a disease which still has no cure.) Furthermore, the device sends constant feedback to the parents’ smartphones, thereby ensuring constant contact!

3. Practo 

Perhaps one of the most successful healthcare startups in India, Practo is a tool that helps schedule appointments with your doctors. Giving users a wide data pool of doctors specializing in various fields, Practo lets users look for specific departments and get treatment from the doctor of their choice. The tool also gives you a complete picture of how much the consultation is going to come up to and whether the city you live in has the doctor you need or not. A handy tool for people who do not have a direct access to doctors, Practo simplifies the lengthy process of finding and booking appointments.

4. Grow Fit 

According to several surveys, a large number of lives were lost in India in the year 2016, primarily due to lifestyle diseases. While the number in itself is a staggering one, what makes this issue slightly more serious is that the expenses incurred because of these deaths is estimated to be almost $ 4.58 billion. Looking at this huge gap between the lives lost and the treatment available, Grow Fit was created. By working with an expert team of nutritionists, doctors and health analysts, Grow Fit looks at helping those who are susceptible to contracting these diseases and also works with solving issues through diet tips, health tips and behavioural insights.

5. PORTEA 

Looking at the lack of proper healthcare facilities for the elderly and the people living in areas which are not accessible through technology, PORTEA was created to make access to medical facilities easy. Through remote diagnostics, point of care devices, monitoring equipment, doctors and medical professionals, PORTEA helps monitor and take care of patients who are in no position to travel to hospitals.

Through startups like these working on improving the lives of patients everywhere, innovators work every day to make treatment an easy process. If you think we missed out on any startups that have to be mentioned, comment and let us know!

Have you ever thought of having a camera in a watch, or a watch band, for that matter?  Tech giant Apple Inc., was given a patent for a smartwatch band which will have an adjustable built in camera.  

This idea was attempted by several other brands, but Apple now holds the patent for it.  The patent is titled, “Watch band with optical sensor.”  The patent was filed by Apple back in September 2016, but the patent was officially given today. 

Unlike other watch bands with a built in camera, this design of Apple actually allows users to point the camera in all directions, without actually rotating the wrist. 

How will Apple do this?  The camera will be placed on the loose end of the band which sticks up from above the face of the watch.  This placement of the camera makes it extremely convenient for the users to twist, rotate, extend or bend the camera to capture the desired shots, without actually straining the wrist.

This location of the camera can also allow placing cameras on either side of the band, giving Apple some feature options like 360 degree photos and videos.

If this watch ever makes it into the real world, it can help people capture important moments of their life instantly, without having to depend much on a smartphone.

This watch can help you capture images and videos even when you are hiking, swimming, running or surfing.  Apple has proposed several options to capture images and videos, including pinching the band, pressing a button on the band and voice control.

With this patent, it is sure Apple is making every effort possible to take its technology a notch higher.  We will have to wait and see when this idea actually makes it into the real world, if it does.
