The future of healthcare innovations looks exceedingly bright with Google extending its span of interest— teaming up with GlaxoSmithKline. Verily, a Google backed enterprise has collaborated with the GSK in order to materialize a pretty ambitious bioelectronics venture, termed as the Galvani Bioelectronics. This will be a UK based firm and the collaboration is worth $712 million— to be precise.

Coming to bioelectronics, it is a new and exciting field which makes use of biological architecture and materials for creating information processing structures. This field makes use of organic and inorganic materials followed by the inclusion of bio-molecular electronics. This will surely be something new for Google, a company which has earlier ventured into the likes streaming services like Chromecast, virtual reality and a lot more. While the applications like Playbox and YouTube continue to prosper under Google’s tutelage, healthcare will be something new and constructive form the company which finally plans on moving out of the streaming and video centric restrictions.

Bioelectronics seems like an entirely new concept but owing to the ready acceleration of technology, we have been using this term— pretty commonly. One such example has to be the defibrillators which have gained traction over time with more than 160,000 units used in the US— each year. Moreover, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology has termed Bioelectronics as the future of medical technology.

While we do have recent biological equipment at our disposal, the newest project will divulge a few details about the likes of chronic pain management and a lot more. Newer possibilities will include treating ailments like asthma, inflammatory colon syndrome and even arthritis. That said, we might just be looking at the micro-sized devices which will be no bigger than a grain of rice. Most of these purported equipment sets will be able to transmit electric signals along the nervous hierarchy of the body, via complementary programs.

Google has been taking interest in this project owing to the range offered by the same. The excitement of managing pain and ailments without resorting to drugs is something which interests the company. Moreover, the firm has a lot to offer in terms of technical inputs.
