Modern medicine and technology often go hand-in-hand. In the past, doctors relied on their knowledge and subjective understanding of patients’ symptoms to make a diagnosis. Today, however, their job is made easier in several ways by medical devices. These devices work by recording measurable biological data which can be used later in the medical process. To get this data, sensors are required — sensors that…
