Innovations in Gynaecology

Many couples face difficulties when deciding to have a baby. Poor health of any of the partners can lead to issues with infertility and childbearing. And if many years ago, most of such problems were intractable, nowadays, future parents have a chance to meet all challenges thanks to advanced modern technologies. Scientists don’t stop working on the development of innovative technologies in gynaecology to provide women with a chance to live a healthy life and enjoy every stage of pregnancy. This year has given an impetus to the development of different technologies. Thus, what are the main innovations in gynaecology that women can benefit from?

1. Portable ultrasound

The current lockdown has brought different changes in the lives of people. Many of them have been deprived of the opportunity to visit a hospital in the usual regime. It is not a secret that pregnant women are among the populations at higher risk, so they should visit a hospital regularly and receive ultrasound exams. The scientists have created a portable ultrasound device that allows a pregnant woman to make the required exam herself and share its results with her doctor right away. It is connected to a smartphone, and the special app provides the whole guidance to achieve correct and high-quality results. Pregnant women are extremely sensitive, and according to statistics, they pay at least 4 unnecessary visits to the doctor, being worried about their baby’s health and well-being. Stressful situations can negatively affect the general condition of the mother-to-be, and if you are a student, it is worth studying a speedy paper review to not worry about your assignments. And this innovative device will help you stay calm and avoid additional visits to the hospital.

2. Laparoscopy assistance platform

The recovery process after the surgery will depend on the scale of a surgical procedure. Thus, minimally invasive surgery plays a crucial role in the patient’s recovery and the occurrence of complications. However, human abilities are limited sometimes, and it can be hard to operate through extremely small incisions even for advanced surgeons. It is when robotics can come to the rescue. The latest innovation is a module surgical assistance platform that is designed to operate in conjunction with available laparoscopic equipment.

3. Remote pregnancy monitoring system

When a woman is already in the final months of pregnancy, it is extremely important to watch both her and fetal heart rate. The increased heart rate can indicate serious issues. However, a pregnant woman can find out about that only when she visits a hospital. The designed monitoring system simplifies this process and allows a woman to do everything herself within the comfort of her home. The device will be required only in the third trimester if there are some assumptions for it. The results will be shared with your doctor via the app on your smartphone. This device is especially relevant during the lockdown when women don’t have a chance to visit their doctors, and none website can provide them with any information when everything is over.

4. Remote preeclampsia testing

Preeclampsia is considered one of the most common and killer complications that are connected with increased blood pressure. Previously it could be diagnosed only in a hospital, but scientists have improved the existing supine pressor test and made it possible to do it at home. A woman will need an accelerometer, a pressure gauge, and a smartphone with a downloaded app. She measures her arterial pressure in different positions and records the readings in the app. It processes the info provided and shares it with your doctor.
