Technology that can Save your Life

Technology is great at a lot of things. It has made our lives so much better in innumerable ways. For instance, if you have a smartphone and an internet connection, you can learn just about anything you want wherever you are on the planet. There are millions of ebooks to read, more videos than it is possible to watch in several lifetimes and social media alone is enough to consume massive swaths of time every day.


Technology is great at a lot of things. It has made our lives so much better in innumerable ways.

There are millions of ebooks to read, more videos than it is possible to watch in several lifetimes and social media alone is enough to consume massive swaths of time every day.
                   In fact, a study conducted in 2010 found that Facebook and Twitter were costing the British economy £14 billion a year in lost productivity. Smartphones can also help you with other things too. You can find love on a dating app or get a ride home when it doesn’t quite work out. There are about 2.2 million apps on Apple’s app store, and each one was designed with the specific intention of being useful and profitable. Not all of them are going to be useful to each person. With such a large number, you can expect that some will be incredibly specific. Someone on holiday in the Caribbean will not need an app that tells them about snowfall for skiing for example. However, lots are incredibly useful. In fact, there is lot of tech today that can save your life. Here are few that you may be interested in:
  1. Seeing a doctor can sometimes be rather expensive as well as time-consuming, especially if you have to travel to their office or a hospital. Fortunately, technology has made this interaction simpler and quicker. A cloud telemedicine company will enable you to speak to a doctor using a video link from wherever you are in the world. In the case of emergencies, the best option is still to seek medical attention in person, but for everything else that may be worrying or paining you, you can speak to a doctor much quicker by using the internet.
  2. There are a variety of apps that have been designed to help with people’s health. While pedometers are pretty well-known and common, there are apps that can tell you your heartbeat which is just as useful. If it is too fast, you should speak to a doctor. In the modern connected world, lots of people find that they are too busy to look after themselves in the way that they’d like. That is why apps like Fitnet are so popular. It provides short five to seven minute workouts that you can do anywhere. There really is no excuse for failing to exercise.
  3. Wearables are becoming more commonplace all the time. Not all of them can save your life though. One cool gadget which can is L’Oreal’s stretchable UV light detector. You put it on your skin and head out to enjoy the summer sun. You can scan it with your phone, and it will analyze the color changes that UV light has provoked. This will inform you if you need to find some shade for a while. Skin cancer is serious but more easily avoided if you can know who much sunshine is too much. [right-post]
