Nano Technology Replaces Acupuncture Needle

If you have ever thought of having an acupuncture treatment but have not for fear of needles, there is no need to fear now. In a new form of treatment silicone chips are placed on the skin instead of piercing it with acupuncture needles.

How do the Silicone Chips Work?

When I first experienced the Nano chips on my skin I felt a tingling, hot sensation in each acupuncture body point where the chip rested. While the chip retained its coolness the body responded with the ebb and flow of heat and a feeling of relaxing buzz, similar to when Chi is activated with acupuncture needles. Dr. Xu, co-inventor of the Health Recovery Chips and a practitioner of acupuncture in Toronto, explained the process as the permeation of vibrational signals that flow through the designated acupuncture channels to blood, to the organs, muscles, to all the cells of the body.

What is Nano Technology?

Already widely used in many fields of applied science, nano technology facilitates the control of matter on the atomic and molecular scale in order to construct devices or re-fashion materials within that scale. Using North American Nano technology as a basis, manufacturing experts in China have produced a health recovery system that mimics acupuncture with needle. The manufacturing process takes place on the minuscule levels where common materials are influenced so that their application can achieve definite results. Eight years in development, the research, design, manufacturing and testing process of the Nano health recovery method reached its goal of capturing the essence of what acupuncture needles initiate in a treatment. The company literature lists the Nano Acupuncture benefits as follows:

Safe
Convenient
Effective
Simple
Economical
No side effects
Needle free
Portable

Acupuncture is a major part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has been practiced in China for thousands of years. As a primary or secondary health system it is growing in all parts of the world in spite of the fact that science can not explain how it works. However, a documented research shows that during a treatment the brain releases endorphins which produce pain relief and a sense of relaxation (which in turn helps the body repair itself). Based on these results Acupuncture is now regarded as an astoundingly effective system of healing.

Hospitals using Nano Acupuncture in China

The Nano health recovery method is designed to be practiced according to the theory of Chinese Medicine. Tested by using double-blind studies, Nano chips are now a standard in a dozen hospitals in China, where the treatment results using them are found to be as beneficial as those using acupuncture needles. Here in the West, more and more Chinese Medicine practitioners are taking advantage of this non-invasive method, particularly for patients who fear needles. Also, in a busy clinic the Nano Chips can save time and expense for they are easy to apply and never lose their potency.

For a family and for all those who prefer using self healing energy, the Nano health system could be considered as a holistic multidimensional first aid kit. It comes with instructions and an acupuncture map booklet for various kinds of pain, flu, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other stress related illnesses.

A New Method to Seal Up Wounds and Surgical Incisions by Nano-technology and Lasers

With the development in the field of medicine and pharmacy, the world has seen much innovative technological advancement. The recent developments in nanotechnology and its use in medicine have shown promise for the new ways in the health care system.One such interesting development is the use of nanotechnology and lasers to seal the open wounds. Pharmacy online helps you understand these in a better and effective way.

The scientists working on this nano technological development is being funded by the Air force along with various agencies within the Department of Defense for the last eight years. These scientists approach to seal the wounds with the use of lasers at the molecular level. This is the effort of the pentagon to create a faster and more efficient way to treat the warzone and battlefield injuries. A team of scientists including Massachusetts General Hospital researchers Irene Kochevar, Robert Redmond and dermatologist Sandy Tsao are the masterminds in the nano-tech research development.

A clinical trial was performed on 31 patients that required skin incisions who were tried out with nano-sutures in lab experiments. Experimentally the incisions were treated one half with the new laser/nanotech treatment, and the other half with conventional sutures. The difference in healing was obvious.

The use of this technology will replace the traditional sutures and staples that were used to repair skin wounds. This process uses a dye that coats the open wound and is then left exposed to green light for 2 to 3 minutes. This dye absorbs the light and then catalyses the molecular bonds that are present in between the tissue collagen. These bonds then create an instant seal that is water tight, for attaching tissues. This technology is called Photochemical Tissue Bonding (PTB). This process prevents the risk of infections or any inflammation, thus speeding the scar formation.

The process is a simple method that uses a hand held device about a foot long and a few inches wide. This can be used to treat the wounds such as eye wounds and injuries from shrapnel, which can benefit from the patch version of the treatment. The wound might be sealed by the formation of a biological membrane that is formed over the eye, which quickly seals the opening by the use of laser. The soldier can undergo a more intensive surgery afterwards while preventing from worsening of the wound in the battlefield.

The time is not so far away when you will be able to purchase these hand held devices form the pharmacies and this will be marketed over by pharmacy online services. We could imagine this happening not far from here. It seems to be a part of our healthcare system, imagine the doctors using these devices for even smallest and minor wounds that people get in daily life. We could imagine the pharmaceutical industries making profit through this and pharmacy online availability with the most attractive designs and easy to use product.

Will The Next iPhone 5 Adapt Nano Technology?

Indeed as early as January of 2011, we have already been hearing rumors of the coming iPhone 5. Whether it excitement being created by Apple marketing experts or maybe positive anticipation based on the previous Apple product launches, talking about it sure give forums and tech geeks countless of hours of chat and talk.

Even in podcasts in iTunes, we have been seeing a great number of topics dedicated exclusively to create rumors and predict just what the next generation of the iPhone would look like and how it will perform compared to the current iPhone 4 which is by the way, doing an immaculate performance in terms of customer satisfaction and revenues. So far as compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 3GS, it was able to penetrate the Chinese market in just a few months after it world wide release not like the 3GS where Apple had to wait for several months just to start promoting in Chinese stores.

The upcoming iPhone 5 will sure to create waves in the geek community since one of the speculated rumors that has been bugging us is that the new iPhone version will be dealing heavily with Nano technology where Apple has already started to go into when they first introduced to the world the iPod Nano.

Nano technology as we know it, or think we know it involves turning extremely complex devices into tiny specks, almost microscopic in nature. The smallest so far is actually made to be used in the medical sector where researchers and scientists attempt to develop small nano machines to reach the blood stream or intestinal flora to cure certain cancers when the immune systems own Nano warriors like the phagocytes are already compromised.

In the UK, iPhone 5 insurance is already being developed by gadget insurance providers in preparation for the possible launch anytime this coming year; it is anticipated to be released this June or July of 2011, but it could be earlier because so far these are just speculations. In upcoming iPhone 5 insurance policies, we can expect some changes maybe in price and level of coverage.

Currently, insurance for smart phones cover loss and other accidental damages; as for iPhone insurance, we sure hope that it will cover loss too and accidental damages if possible, the price wouldn’t be too far from the current rates that UK Apple smart phone owners are enjoying. With that said, it sure to be an exciting year for tech world as the table PC and smartphone war continues, we can expect more innovations to make any gadget geek jump with excitement; we know because we are too!

Difference Between Micro and Nano Technology

Our scientific expeditions haven’t just taken us to the realm of gigantic spatial bodies but also to the field of the minutest. Micro and Nano technology, deal with miniaturized products offering compact and highly efficient solutions. There is currently no great difference between these two fields as both of them have sort of a similar goal; to produce technological devices of the minutest sizes. The only major difference is in the scale. Nano scale is three times smaller than the micro-scale. Nanotech usually concerns itself in the atomic or molecular scale while Micro-technology deals with electrical and mechanical devices that are near one millionth of a metre in size. Operations related to both of them however, require a similar setup which is free of dust and dirt. Additional steps, like special dress codes etc. are taken to ensure that no dust particles interact with the minute products. The following section of the article, tries to bring out some of the important differences in these two fields with a view to bring out a clearer picture.

Scale

This is one of the clearer distinctions between micro and nano technology. A micrometer is 106 m while a manometer is 109 m. Scientists have observed that several different phenomena show up as the size decreases. Hence the applicable theories regarding the two fields are also somewhat different. More of quantum mechanics plays a hand in nanotech. Over the last few years, many products that were under the scope of Micro-technology have further scaled down and are being treated as nanotech products.

Applications

Differences between micro and nano technology can also be seen in the different applications of the two fields. Micro electromechanical System or MEMS is probably the most popular application of Micro-technology. MEMS devices contain mechanical components as well as electronic circuits embedded onto a small chip. Nanotechnology has received more attention in the recent years has various applications in many areas such as healthcare, IT, auto-mobile, textile and biochemical industries.

Nanotech as the Heir to Micro-technology

Micro and nano technology are currently the most popular areas of scientific study. Nanotechnology is expected to be the next major revolution and more attention and funding is now being diverted towards this field. Nanotech has taken over many applications that were previously under the scope of Microtechnology. Governments, educational institutions and major companies throughout the globe are now investing mostly on nanotechnology research and development.
