4 Health Innovations What is the name of the innovation assigned to you? What is it used for? How does it work? Describe the science and engineering behind it. How does the innovation help people? What did people use before this object was invented? How might your life (or the lives of others) be different if this object had not been invented? Discussion Questions

5 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of stethoscope] This device allows a medical professional to listen to the internal sounds of a human or animal. It is most familiarly used to listen to heart and lung sounds. There are several different types in use. The use of this device is called auscultation.

6 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of digital pedometer here] A pedometer is a device that measures the number of steps a person takes. Pedometers can help people measure and increase their daily activity level. Digital pedometers include a sensor and software. Many everyday electronics, such as cell phones, come with this device included.

7 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of artificial limb] The scientific name for this device is prosthesis. Prosthetic devices can be used to replace body parts both external and internal. The ancient Egyptians were early pioneers in the use of prosthetic devices. Modern materials have revolutionized the creation of prosthetic devices.

8 Everyday Health Innovations An insulin pump frees a person with diabetes from having to administer several insulin injections daily. The pump delivers insulin directly into the wearers body. Many of these devices can be synched with a personal computer in order to track dosage and history.

9 Everyday Health Innovations The use of lasers to correct vision problems was first explored in the early 1980s. Laser surgery does not result in heat damage to nearby tissues. The procedure is very safe. However, some patients find that their results arent permanent.

10 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of digital scale] Weighing scales can be used to monitor your body weight. A scale like this one works through the use of levers and springs. Digital scales are widely available and inexpensive. There are many types of scales youll find them at the grocery store, the pharmacy, and the chemistry lab, among other places.

11 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of orthodontic braces] Orthodontists use wires and brackets to create braces, which can straighten teeth. Braces use pressure to loosen and move teeth into the proper alignment. Patients usually wear braces for a year or more to reach the desired results. Plastic (invisible) braces are now available.

12 Everyday Health Innovations [Image of digital blood pressure cuff] A blood pressure cuff measures a persons blood pressurethe pressure exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Regular measuring of blood pressure is a good way to monitor for hypertensionhigh blood pressure. Hypertension strains the heart and can contribute to many diseases.

13 Everyday Health Innovations Along with stitches and staples, glue is often used to close wounds. The use of medical glue is especially helpful in treating small children, who may be frightened by stitches or staples. If you have a wound, do not try to glue it closed. Seek medical attention.

14 Everyday Health Innovations A thermometer measures temperature or the difference between two temperatures. Digital thermometers contain a temperature-sensitive electric resistor. An inexpensive computer inside the digital thermometer interprets the resistors response into a numerical reading.

15 Health Innovations What is the name of the innovation assigned to you? What is it used for? How does it work? Describe the science and engineering behind it. How does the innovation help people? What did people use before this object was invented? How might your life (or the lives of others) be different if this object had not been invented? Discussion Questions

16 Game Rules Work together with your group. Have one person record all your answers. In two minutes, name all the health innovations you use in an average day. Share your list with the class. Name all the health innovations you use in an average day.
