ISSUE 32  // OCTOBER 2020

With lockdown measures pushing mental health patients towards web-based information and apps in lieu of face-to-face treatments, privacy concerns have become a core issue. To find out more we investigate how much of our personal health data actually stays private; while in device news we examine the potential of a robotic jaw as a vehicle for testing advanced drug release from chewing gum in vitro.

Plus, we learn about the wearable tech being used to tackle Covid-19, take a look at a revolutionary way to treat uterine fibroids using radiofrequency energy, and ask if a new blood test developed by a team in China can live up to the hype by detecting cancer up to four years before symptoms appear.

Also, we find out how devices are helping patients with vocal issues to communicate with medical practitioners, debate the issue of single-use plastic amid global efforts to reduce virus transmission, and examine diversity in health tech innovation.
