This is a very interesting study with some true curiositys. I think having these mobile electronics will help out the medical staff extremely well. What I'm curious about is how they actually measure the pain. Individuals pain thresholds are enough to drive a medical staff crazy, but what part of the technology says this is a certain number on their 1-10 scale?
@saranyati.I really admired the angle from which you viewed the pain detector.
Truly, this is going to be of a great help in the world of infants that are having one pain or the other but telling us is a problem.But what are the conditions that would aid the sensitivity of this device and will it be sensitive enough to detect anything in infants
Sensitivity definitely becomes a question here. Initially the device can start with simple stomach related pains caused because of food poisining and can include any thing to do with respiratory sytem.
Well Ariella, your post is bringing to me a crucial trigger, I really believe it has been discussed a lot: how high are investment in medical technologies vs military technologies? Which is for human people the most proficient in providing benefits across for people everywhere across the globe?
This device can help many paediatrician to identify problems in small infants as they cant describe the pain.
@saranyatil, you are absolutely right. This device will help paediatrician to identify problems in small infants who cannot express their pain. I think this good news for infants parents too who cant understand the pain the infants are in when they are crying.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
