Lightbulb Smart Patches - New Medical Technology

Smart Patches: A new medical technology that places a patch on the skin that can administer drugs to patients like a super intelligent nicotine patch. The smart skin patch is a result of the medical world’s fascination with a continious and controlled drug delivery method. Researchers in North Korea have devised a small smart patch comprised of nanomaterials that can be the method of medicating patients exactly when they need it.

The timing of distribution of the narcotics by the patch would be mediated by sensors in the patch. The 2 inch patch is comprised of nanomaterials that are stretchy, and with heat activated silica nanoparticles that monitor muscle activity and body temperature for indications to deliver the meds. ‘Stretchable Heaters’ are included into the smart dermal patch to control the rate of drug deliver as necessary for optimal effect.
