Armstrong, Boulton and Reekers provide insight into future of "consumer-medical-man-machine interfaces" in Vienna #Diabetes Conference @UofA @bio5

Professors David G. Armstrong, Director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Andrew JM Boulton of the University of Manchester and Jim Reekers of the University of Amsterdam delivered three impactful lectures at the Advanced Technologies and Therapeutics for Diabetes (ATTD2014) Symposium in Vienna earlier today. “What we are seeing is a merger of consumer electronics with medical devices– and it is unprecedented and relentless.” noted Dr. Armstrong. “It is also relentlessly exciting”.
The three speakers described research from their teams that detailed everything from phone based technologies that can prevent wounds and gangrene to cutting edge vascular technologies that can predict healing. “The future is enormously bright”, posited Professor Boulton, who is also President of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). “The wonderful thing for all of us is that the future is now.”
