Despite the widely acknowledged need to redesign the speculum, no fundamentally new design of the device has become mainstream since the late 1800s. We take a look at the existing format, as well as the designs that have failed to replace it, to find out why it is so difficult to redesign the speculum. Plus, as the topic of race in medical research moves into mainstream conversation, we investigate recent findings that AI-based algorithms used in the US to guide healthcare decisions have implicit racial bias.

Also in the next issue, find out how mini factories are being used to combat emergency medical equipment shortages, take a look at stackable 3D-printed bone bricks designed to fill gaps left by blast injuries, and examine how uncaging equipment repair tools could transform med tech.

Moreover, we speak to SonicWall about building a secure contact tracing app, round up key features of the self-charging medical devices trend, and profile Japanese company CureApp and its work in the NASH space.
