Technological growth has long been characterized as exponential, and for good reason. In 1965, Gordon Moore noticed a trend in the development of internal computer construction. He noticed that at predictable intervals, which previously took up one amount of space, now took up a much-diminished portion of space, allowing for more effective engineering.
From this time, it has been reckoned that at intervals of between 18 and 24 months, the speed of computational technology effectively doubles. This means 4 hypothetical cycles of some subroutine per second become 8, then 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, etcetera. Did you know that today, terabytes of information can be processed in real time using cloud computing techniques?
Moore’s law has been borne out by reality, and this has had some interesting effects on multiple areas of industry; from the automotive realm to the extraterrestrial climes of the aerospace industry, increasing technological processing capabilities have led to increasingly complex and precise engineering feats. This is especially true when it comes to medicine.
Medical technology is in a whole new world of effectiveness; from breakthroughs in cardiology to breakthroughs in prosthetic technology, there are quite a few different areas where in-depth professional component design is integral to medical advancement. Breakthroughs are even happening at the chemical level through productivity-enhancing nootropic drugs.
Companies that provide stampings in all shapes, sizes and materials have also seen high supplier ratings with both automotive and medical customer. As component design businesses like this become involved with increasingly precise technological engineering methods, it becomes possible for them to synthesize more and greater medical technology. The people of today are truly becoming a cybernetic generation as a result.
Human And Machine Synthesis
Consider the pacemaker, as an example. This is a machine which helps regulate the heart’s function so that those at risk for heart attacks can avoid them. Being fit with one of these, in a sense, makes an individual cybernetic. The individual becomes an organism who is partially assisted by machine technology.
In realms of prosthetic tech, there are now replacement limbs that can be manipulated by the brain and used similarly to real limbs. This is only possible through increasingly complex and intricate component design.
It’s expected that the near future will see the introduction of nano-machines—that is: machines smaller than the eye can see—into medical use. Such technology already exists, but it’s only in an introductory stage for now. The point is, tight engineering on the cutting edge of technology will increasingly characterize the medical world.
This is already evident in the variety of operational and monitoring equipment which defines the modern hospital. Such equipment needs to be ready to work long hours with diverse patients and consistently deliver accurate information. That requires a component design that is qualitative and reliable.
When it comes to medicine, there are often situations where it becomes necessary for some unique technological innovation to be designed. Sometimes a certain medical condition has never been seen, but a treatment requires a specific kind of medical administration where certain antibiotic compounds are strategically mixed in real-time.
Organizations that can prototype, design, and deliver such machines soon find themselves at the head of cutting-edge technology. Oftentimes such innovations will trickle-down, eventually affecting the public in other ways. The “space age” brought quite a variety of technology into a common utility that was otherwise specifically designed, and today is no different.
