PHI Cares ~ PHi Air Medical Membership /Affiliate Program ~ Air Ambulances Transportation with the highest standards of safety and patient care
Wow, an air ambulance service with a membership card. Considering the pricing for medical helicopter evacuations, this actually makes some sense for people in suburban/rural situations, otherwise the transport bill will be out of this world, and sometimes not covered by insurance, thus bankrupting you.

disrupting the drug sales industry in japan, by using retirees and work-at-home moms who were in the drug sales industry (a harsh on-premises sales gig), scheduling up tablet videoconference sales pitches with harried doctors, who can set their own desired times to speak with drug reps. Much better conversion (5 minute on-site pitches vs 30 minute videocalls).

Mac software for viewing 3D patient medical imaging data in the DICOM format. Appears it is sometimes also used for working with patient 3D models for later output to a 3D printer though?

Japanese company that does soft 3D models, particularly of organs for training doctors. Recently famous for doing a tie-up with a maternity clinic to convert ultrasound scans of fetus' into a 3D model for doting pregnant mothers, for around $2K a pop, or $500 for the just the face of the fetus. Suitable as cellphone strap charms of course...

Perpetual motion: A piezoelectric pacemaker that is powered by your heartbeat | ExtremeTech
Wow, that's actually pretty smart, if the local energy generation and storage for the periodic stimulus firing is sufficient and it isn't a large device to stuff into someones chest. Also much simpler and potentially more failsafe than say a blood sugar powered fuel cell.

Intravenous Oxygen
Apparently a method for packaging oxygen in lipid based microcapsules small enough and deformable enough to pass through capillaries. This effectively provides oxygen to people who have reduced or no lung function, for apparently up to 30 minutes. A sudden half hour increase in the "Golden Hour" could change the face of emergency medicine. It could also be used by people in extreme or dangerous situations, such a firefighters, or deep sea divers. I wonder if it could also be classified as a transhumanism boost treatment? Could athletes be considered doping if they used this, as it might potentially supply more oxygen than one could reasonably intake through the lungs?

GE to Begin Medical Cloud Computing in Japan, Nikkei Says - Bloomberg
Hrm, I wonder if they both have enough money to push into japan, and the necessary sales force to push into the private medical practices that litter the landscape in Japan, since the hospitals are literally welded at the hip to their Hitachi or Fujitsu made in-house EMR systems (which incidentally, are usually heavily customized at each site, usually operating within a server room in the hospital, and generally suck since IT in japanese healthcare feels like it's more than 10 years behind.) If GE can come in at a good price point (and now that fiberoptic broadband is almost a given), they can short circuit and undercut the incumbents.

InTouch Health Telemedicine Technology for Remote Presence
Apparently HeadThere, a startup doing a telepresence avatar robot, got into a legal dustup with these guys over telepresence robot avatar patents. Apparently they settled out of court in such a way that HeadThere can complete prototypes and do dev work, but are barred from selling anything in the US (well, assuming they don't want to fork over patent licensing fees). Sucks to be them, but the world market is still plenty big, assuming In Touch doesn't try to bring down a WIPO international patent hammer.

"Prescription" Tattoos Could Monitor Blood-Glucose Levels in Diabetics | Ecouterre

eMed-ID | Emergency Medical Information Devices
Looks a bit sleazy, considering it's going after both a captured audience and talks about franchise opportunities, but conceptually, it's a bridge service/concept. Having an easy to wear USB device that contains relevant medical and ID information on people who require extended medical services (the seriously sick, the infirm elderly, and the mentally weakening elderly) is a great idea, provided the information is both securable and easily accessible. Adding GPS/geofence services to catch alzheimer's escapees is a nice value-addin.

Stem cells to grow bigger breasts - Times Online
Using stem cells to augment generic fat cell reinjection so the reinjected fat has a stable blood supply tissue composition. A semi-natural boobjob, resulting from cosmetic surgery research for breast cancer victims.

As opposed to that recent japanese news blurb about a company selling a gadget (maybe a ringtone or a mp3?) that plays resampled baby crying sounds, which seem to have a verifiable psycho-physiological effect of causing the female body to "prepare" itself for breast feeding by enlarging the breasts. Though I wonder how marketable that would be considering the heightened female sensitivity to irritation from baby crying sounds. They certainly couldn't use such an audio device overnight as they probably wouldn't get a good nights sleep. That, and the effect wouldn't be permanent unless they were nursing.
