Micro Medical Device takes on the Opiod Crisis

6/8/17     Smart pills are fairly new to the medical field. They do a variety of things from measuring the amount of a substance in your body to acting like a micro-submarine maneuvering throughout your body for a specific purpose.

One of the more recent hopes of this device is to put a dent in the opiod overdose crisis. Imagine a smart pill that could detect and measure other substances in your body, then administer the correct amount of drug to counteract the opiods! This could be possible using microfluidic and micro actuator techniques. Scientists are currently working out the details on this concept and could make a quick positive direct impact in the fight against opiod overdoses.
