Another Feather in the Cap

It’s hard to downplay the humongous amount of discoveries that the modern world has made so far. These discoveries, despite touching our lives in different ways, have had a common trait of being transformational. After all, the life we are living at the moment is fairly different from what anyone could have imagined a few decades ago. However, if there is one thing that the visionaries of today cannot claim as their discovery, it’s the ability to get creative to find solutions. Humans always had a knack of finding subtle answers to some of the biggest questions posed at them. Their sheer excellence in combining elements that had no business together to create a helpful tool is something that has pushed us forward throughout our history, and it still continues to do so. The only difference one can make a case for would be the fact that our ancestors used this creativity to survive, while we are utilizing it to also enhance the quality of our lives. In our pursuit to achieve it, we have enlisted the help of many things, but the most important of them all is undoubtedly technology. The role technology plays in our lives has become increasingly essential over the years. As a result of our creativity being put to purposeful use, we now don’t have just a handful of tools to assist us; instead we now boast an entire ecosystem of tech-driven tools, each of them having something unique to offer.

This ecosystem of tools, despite already being huge, remains growth-oriented, and medical field has just taken it a notch up. For years, Glioblastoma tumor has spelled problems for the doctors due to its poor prognosis. The volatile nature of this disease means the patient rarely live beyond two years following their proper diagnosis. It has been crying out for an effective treatment, and its search might be over now.

Developed by Houston Methodist Neurological Institute, the oscillating magnetic field device is being touted to become a reliable treatment for this disease. The device is supposed to be worn every day during the treatment so it can disrupt the biochemical processes in cancer cells. It’s designed as a wearable headset to ensure that the treatment is localized near glioblastoma tumor, thus offering a more focused approach. In its first human trial, the device shrunk the tumor by whopping 31%.
