4. Insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) — The FDA cleared the world’s first and only smartphone-compatible ICM in October — Abbott Laboratories’ Confirm Rx. It’s implanted in the patient and connects via Bluetooth to their smartphone to transmit data to their physician.

In November, the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center became the first in Texas and among the first in the country to use this new device. ECRI suggests that hospitals determine how many patients would benefit from Confirm Rx, gauge cardiologists’ interest and evaluate any potential reimbursement issues.

5. Virtual reality for pediatrics — A handful of children’s hospitals and companies are working on 3-D virtual reality software to distract children from repeated injections and infusions that are required to treat serious conditions. Potential applications include hemophilia, many forms of cancer and severe burns.

In the September 2017 issue of HCB News, John Vartanian, industry expert and former CEO of Medical Imaging Resources wrote, "Researchers posit that the mesmerizing 3-D sights and sounds of VR provide ‘virtual distraction,’ taking over the patients’ visual and auditory senses to the point that pain, discomfort or anxiety are reduced or even eliminated.”

6. Neuronix’s NeuroAD Therapy System — The is the first device-based treatment for Alzheimer’s to score CE mark. It combines noninvasive transcranial magnetic stimulation and computer-based cognitive training.

It doesn’t modify the disease, but a few small studies suggested that it may improve scores on the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale cognitive subscale by about three to four points after six months.

7. Seventh Sense Biosystems’ TAP microneedle blood-collection device — It’s a single-use, 1.5-inch diameter device that uses 30 microneedles and a tiny vacuum to collect 100 microliters of capillary blood in two to three minutes. The company claims that it’s “nearly painless,” which is ideal for pediatric patients with chronic conditions that require recurrent blood draws.

8. Aspect Imaging’s Embrace neonatal MR system — This system, which got the FDA nod in July, can be used directly in the neonatal intensive care unit, since it’s fully enclosed. Traditionally, neonates have to be transported out of the NICU to undergo MR exams on a conventional system.
