app for computer using MRI device scan data

MRI uses density to create 3d images where tissues are easily recognizable by the trained eye. Someone has yet to create software that uses MRI data to isolate the ~232 different cell types and ~78 separate organs by density. I would like to see MRI R&D communities create some sort of 3D CAD model that color-codes both healthy and non-healthy tissues and organs for physicians to study. I have linked to Prof. Laurie Hall's 1998 lecture on the technology I am referring to that needs the "killer app" to go with upcoming HD MRI equipment.

StepBack

Monetize footsteps. Take the average cost to insure the public at weight X. Determine cost savings of reducing total per capita weight by X percent. Take 90 % of that and put into a trust. Then break down cost into individual steps and assign monetary value eg. $.00075 per step. Give individuals a smart pedometer that "phones" home. Mail them a check. Walk 25k steps get 7 buck Walk 50k steps get 14 bucks and so forth and so on. Fund through insurance companies, they pay $.90 to save a buck.

Children's Social Skills Toolkits

As a School Psychologist, I am in close contact with students, teachers and parents. I witness daily the need to prepare children to become optimistic citizens, open to exchange, cooperation and solidarity. Thanks to local partnership, I gathered relevant documents (115) to support teacher's action in their own classrooms. With my support, they can loan one of the three suitcases (following their school level) and later pool their experiences on a dedicated blog, open to any other reader. Aiming to develop children's social skills, these toolkits may improve the climate, their sense of responsability and motivation in classrooms and schools.

Lifewave Non-transdermal patches

These are the first products that encompass the energy medicine description. They are non-transdermal patches that offer pain control and energy to the body without any medication or chemical. They contain organic compounds that contain a crystalline matrix that when applied to the skin will offer changes to the bodies' acupuncture meridians. They are sold in 90 countries presently and have a very small presence in the United States. What will it do for global health? It will reduce medication side-effects, by controlling pain. It will change performance in athletes because they will enjoy improved functions without compromising their health.

Powered By the Masses

Working out for community. My idea is this. You enter a gym where people are getting in better shape and at the same time pumping energy into city's electrical grid. Inside of every exercise machine we have a generator and whenever a person exercises, they give back the energy by spinning the generators. With new neodymium magnets and better generator designs we can achieve a significant energy inflow into the electrical grid. Make the gyms and people compete between each other as to who makes the most energy in a given month, reward accordingly.

Opal Guide to StayingAsSaneAsPossible

As disorder naturally increases with competition for resources and living depends more on adaptability, Opal's Guide to Staying-As-Sane-As-Possible saves precious energy in deciding where-to-go-next. This information process allows individuals, families, communities, nations and cultures to refocus attention more efficiently from sickening fears to healthier "feelgoods" by matching a different scale of natures to a sense of personal pleasure so that greater potential can return. A range of regularly reviewed media outlets would make possible the "owning" of a generic world-view, based on the most accurate information available. Personalized props like totem jewelery, paraphernalia etc. would serve as reminders.

Study Healthy People

Take detailed personal and family histories. Educate and interview parents in depth about what constitutes psychological trauma and take trauma histories. Do developmental attachment histories. Test for multiple intelligences and creativity quotients (CQ). Sequence the healthy genome. Develop tests to assess epigenetic factors and do epigenetic assessments. Come up with one integrated instrument to fully measure and predict health trajectories.

A Better Big Brother

I imagine a world where individuals and health professionals are connected via ubiquitous wireless sensor networks. No longer will we have to trust a patient to act solely on the advice of their physician or wait to communicate in person. Instead we will provide them the tools to take their health into their own hands. All the while, facilitating an open link between the behavior and biological functioning of a patient and their medical professional. This will revolutionize all stages of the health care system from prevention to treatment to diagnosis and long-term care.

Peace by evolution

This is a t-shirt with a picture of a human cell's 46 chromosomes, representing the human genome, the result of millions of years of evolution. A new paradigm embracing the idea that a greater appreciation for what constitutes the evolution of our species, could have an admirable change on how man treats himself and his fellow men.

Wellbeingism

What if we were not the only ones responsible for our health? What if our society structures would be preventing us from achieving complete health? In order to live a healthy life, in order to achieve wellbeing, shouldn't we start by looking at creating the "optimal" society? Welcome to the world of Wellbeingism.
