WIRED HEALTH 2015 : SPEAKER INTERVIEWS

From helping humans to live longer and hacking our performance, to repairing the body and understanding the brain, WIRED Health speakers explore the future of this critical sector.

As a preview of what you can expect from WIRED Health, here are our interviews with some of the game-changers who spoke at the event in 2015.

HealthFillerWIRED HEALTH PREVIEW: REVOLUTIONARY PREDICTIONS FOR THE FUTURE

During the run up to WIRED Health, we talked to some of the innovators and disrupters speaking at the event. We asked each of them to stick their neck out and make a prediction about the future of health. Their answers are exciting and thought-provoking.

Matteo LaiWIRED HEALTH PREVIEW: Q&A WITH MATTEO LAI

How to combine medical quality and attention to usability? Make medical-grade wearables things of beauty. Lai wants to engage the community of early adopters and experts about the shifting boundaries of a consumer technology and medical technology.

RorySutherlandHACKING PATIENT BEHAVIOUR: RORY SUTHERLAND

He imagines a future in which the practice of medicine has been Uberised. Remote data monitoring and analysis, doctor’s appointments via Skype, experienced paramedics sharing the workload with GPs.

Geoff McGrath (1)SPORTS ANALYTICS MEETS MEDICINE: GEOFF MCGRATH

The use of biotelemetry allows for a better understanding of which interventions to make, to try to prevent a patient from deteriorating or prevent a healthy person becoming ill in the first place.

Sonia2THE NANOTECH REVOLUTION: SONIA TRIGUEROS

Imagine a world without chemotherapy. Where cancer treatment consists of a pill that selectively targets and kills cancer cells without damaging healthy ones. Sonia Trigueros believes that world is within our reach, perhaps 20 years away.

JohnCryanUNDERSTANDING PSYCHOBIOTICS: JOHN F. CRYAN

Cryan likens the workings of the brain-gut axis to Downton Abbey: “You have two communities living together in the one house,” he explains. “They need each other to survive, but it’s only when things go wrong downstairs that we start to appreciate how that really affects what happens upstairs.”

NigelAcklandTHE FUTURE OF PROSTHETICS: NIGEL ACKLAND

Ackland is on a mission to disrupt how people think about prostheses and to challenge perceptions of people who wear prostheses. Above all, he wants to get better designed, wearer-friendly prostheses out there and available to everyone who needs them.

AdamGazzaleyNEUROSCIENCE MEETS GAMING: ADAM GAZZALEY

Can using technology boost how the brain processes information? Will it help students engage more deeply in their studies? Introducing the tools into the classroom as an adjunct to existing educational tools is something Gazzaley’s team is already exploring.
