Israeli culture breeds dedicated values to repair the world, and a slew of recent developments have been introduced to serve and solve specific health conditions of a few common, yet crucial healthcare issues. From sleep to stress, a number of Israeli companies are providing new solutions from the Israeli health innovation and medical technology fields.
One of the most common yet untreated issues is lack of sleep. Enter NYX Technologies, an Israeli company that created a wearable headset to help people improve their sleep and reduce daily stress. The device monitors brain activity during sleep and is designed to analyze and optimize sleep cycles, as well as decrease stress levels. The company was chosen to sponsor the newest vertical of neuro-wellness at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show.
Another supportive piece of headgear which is expected to hit the market this summer is meant to soothe parental worries, and manage the seasonal epidemic which hits schools annually. A company called Parasonic, and their product presented as Carely, created an ultrasonic comb to immediately kill and collect lice and their eggs. The product will cost about $100 and is reusable.
In final lifesaving news which could ease the minds of many, the new vaccination bill in Israel was recently passed. This means that children and teachers, from kindergarten to college, who have not been vaccinated will not be allowed to enter schools once an outbreak has been detected. Given the recent and steady increase in the cases of measles due to lack of vaccinations, the Ministry of Public Health seems to finally be taking matters into their own hands.
By tackling the small problems, perhaps these steps towards solutions will be the answer for many to live better and healthier every day.
