Here at Create Health, being a specialist creative agency for healthcare brands, we’re passionate about healthcare and how it can transform people’s lives. The brands we work with are solving real health problems every day – mending, preventing and even curing life’s trickiest hurdles.
The purpose of transformative health is to change our lives for the better. That’s why the companies driving this change are our heroes. They’re driven by the desire to make a real difference to human lives, have the audacity to ask “why can’t we do things better?” and the confidence to bring in new ways of thinking, often from beyond the sector.
As we’re constantly on the lookout for brands that are transforming healthcare, we thought we’d share these with you. After all, they should be celebrated. Here’s a roundup of some of the groundbreaking healthcare companies we’ve come across recently.
With their revolutionary product SightPlus, GiveVision has seemingly done the impossible: they helped people with visual impairment see again. How they’ve done it is like something out of a science fiction movie. SightPlus is basically a portable headset with a built-in camera that captures high-speed, high definition live pictures. A cutting-edge graphic processor then enhances these pictures, one pixel at a time, before projecting it safely onto the eyes. For users it brings the world into focus and improves their lives immeasurably. Extraordinary technology, extraordinary results.
Hands up who’s Googled an ailment or health concern and received a tidal wave of differing opinions and scary scenarios? Well, that’s what British firm Babylon Health recognised before they developed their app, described as ‘The world’s most advanced artificial intelligence healthcare platform’. Now users can consult their virtual doctor 24/7, describing their symptoms before getting a fast and, more importantly, accurate diagnosis. It takes AI and data intelligence to the next level. It’ll never replace a flesh and blood GP, but it’s always a good idea to get a second opinion.
Patients with ongoing illness or diseases can be treated closely in hospital. But what happens when they leave? How can they still receive a similar level of monitoring? Health company Aparito saw this potentially dangerous inconsistency and developed a range of wearable devices and disease-specific mobile apps that provide remote patient monitoring outside of the hospital environment. It sends relevant and real-time data from the patient to the doctor, so any change in medical situation is flagged quickly.
It can be easy to think that doctors are superhuman. But even they need support, guidance and a forum to share concerns from to time to time. Siilo is an instant messaging app designed for busy doctors by busy doctors. Clinicians can compare notes, seek advice, discuss challenging cases, help colleagues and manage workflow. And powerful encryption means no compromise in patient privacy. It’s a wonderful example of how technology meets the ever-changing needs of the healthcare sector. Well done Team Siilo.
What UK company Open Bionics is doing is breath taking in both its ambition and technology. Using the very latest 3D scanning and 3D printing, it produces low-cost bionic hands for amputees. And by encouraging the hottest engineers and developers to join its community, it ensures it’s always at the cutting edge of tech. Remember the heart-warming news story a couple of years ago of fully functioning bionic hands for children that look just like Iron Man’s? Well, that was Open Bionics. Incredible.
