A quantum patch can help a person cope with diseases

Quantum technology for most of ourcontemporaries still remain something fantastic and transcendent. However, it was the development of quantum devices that led mankind to the fact that in almost every home you can now find smartphones, flat-screen televisions and other electronics. According to the portal newatlas.com, MIT researchers came up with a new creative solution for applying the technology of the future in medicine, creating the concept of a “patch”, which allows for the most effective work of vaccines, as well as tracking who and when received any vaccinations. Can this technology really be useful?

Can a quantum patch become a promising technology of the future?

Quantum technology helps in medicine

Created by scientists from MIT patch frommicroscopic needles are able to control the special quantum dots that have been under the skin of a person for many years, essentially storing the history of vaccinations of the individual in his own body. Researchers argue that the need to use such technology is becoming increasingly relevant in connection with an increase in the population in developing countries. Due to the fact that some vaccines require the introduction of multiple doses at certain intervals, re-vaccination is often forgotten, which leads to ineffective treatment. At the same time, the use of new technology will help residents of fast-growing countries forget about paper cards of vaccinations that are often lost or do not exist at all.

The scheme of application of the quantum “patch”

The idea of ​​using a new method of vaccinationbased on tiny semiconductor crystals that reflect specific wavelengths of light. While the drug will be in the bloodstream of a person, any specialist in the field of medicine will be able to check the date of the last vaccination of a person using a specially equipped smartphone that makes the usually invisible dye embedded in the patch fluorescent.

In order to preserve the paint in the body inover a long period of time, a team of scientists encapsulated it in microparticles about 20 microns wide. It will be delivered to the body with the help of a special patch, which is an absolutely painless alternative to the syringe. A large number of tiny dissolving needles will be located on the patch, which will gradually give the necessary dose of medicine to the human body.

Researchers claim that the paint with vaccination data can be seen with a smartphone detector even after five years of constant human exposure to intense sun exposure.
