Product Description


"Realizing that nanotechnology could deliver life-extending drugs, Gussoff imagined what else they could do, and the MaGo bots were born. She did a lot of work finding textbooks that were accessible and had good ideas about the future of nanotechnology. She recommends Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges, Possibilities, Visions, edited by Frank Boehm, CEO of a nanomedical tech company. It’s well worth the $170 cover price if you’re interested in nanomedical technology."
―Quantum Run

About the Author

Frank Boehm has been involved with nanotechnology and especially nanomedicine since 1996, which has inspired the development of numerous concepts and designs for advanced nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic components, devices, and systems to potentially address myriad disease states. His aim is to develop and transform these concepts into real-world applications for global benefit. Over the last decade, Frank has managed to engage the interest of Canadian, U.S. and International researchers in his nanomedical concepts, and in 2009 he formed the startup company, NanoApps Medical, Inc. The aim of this company is to investigate and develop advanced, innovative, and cost-effective nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic devices and systems for the benefit of individuals in both the developing and developed worlds.

HASH(0x90b04678) out of 5 stars Current and future of nano medical devices 8 Mar. 2015
By Gabriele Dadalt Souto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Frank Boehm is an enthusiast of nanomedicine. His book covers the most recent advances in the nanomedical devices field, which systems are in the market or almost there (i.e. in clinical trial phases) and several designed systems still to be developed. The chapters are well organised and comprise a very good review of the specific system being described, and the book goes beyond by addressing how the technologies will be valuable to change the course of medicine in the years to come and in developing countries. Very interesting!
HASH(0x90b045dc) out of 5 stars Detailed and comprehensive overview of recent research in cognitive enhancement science and technology 15 May 2015
By melanie swan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges, Possibilities, Visions is an encyclopedic textbook chronicling a plethora of recent advances in myriad areas of nanotechnology and nanomedicine. The material is extremely dense with paper citations and an overview of recent research in the fields covered. I engaged most specifically with the final chapter which discusses progress in nanomedical cognitive enhancement. Here, we find ourselves in a modern era in which many technologies appear to be on the cusp – helping to resolve pathologies while also having much more future potential for the augmentation of human capabilities.

HASH(0x90f47cd8) out of 5 stars Emerging Technology to Watch For 5 April 2016
By Margaret Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Frank Boehm's book on nanomedicine is both inspiring and comprehensive. This volume goes much further than investigating the ways in which nanomedical diagnostic and therapeutic devices could be produced and what will still be required in terms of innovation at the time of its publication. Frank Boehm goes an extra light year by showing readers his own nanorobotic visions under development. One of those devices, which he calls the Vascular Cartographic Scanning Nanodevice (VCSN), foreshadows the ability to enable non-invasive surgeries and repairs at the cellular level. The VCSN, designed to be small enough to travel through our tiniest capillaries (so that VSCN nanobots cannot get stuck anywhere in the body), would be engineered to perform diagnostic imaging in high-resolution 3-D. The future emergence of such a device onto the market will signal a dramatic paradigm shift in the discipline of medicine itself: Successful nanomedical robots will eliminate disease progression at the cellular level and enable painless bodily repairs -- rendering invasive surgeries and extensive pharmaceutical regimes obsolete as they augment the potential for extreme longevity. It cannot go unnoticed that Frank Boehm's success would naturally signal the success of the radical abundance of nanotechnology itself – given that the creation of successful medical nanorobots will demonstrate the mastery of outstanding engineering problems that will be required for the large-scale implementation of nanotechnology. Anyone interested in the far-reaching potential of nanomedical robotics and nanotechnology in general can be expected to immensely value and enjoy this important contribution to the field.

HASH(0x909912c4) out of 5 stars I recommend taking this exciting glimpse (10-30 years out) into the ... 11 May 2015
By Robin Farmanfarmaian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Nanomedical Device and Systems Design: Challenges, Possibilities, Visions, Frank Boehm employs an exemplar nanomedical device/system that he calls the Vascular Cartographic Scanning Nanodevice (VCSN), to articulate how he envisages that the various components comprising advanced autonomous nanomedical devices might develop. Many of these fundamentally enabling capacities could be biomimetically inspired, and encompass energy harvesting and generation, propulsion and navigation, communications, onboard computation, etc.. He also explores various strategies for how sophisticated nanodevices may enter and leave the patient, once various finely orchestrated nanomedical procedures have been completed. Beyond these aspects, Frank delves into how mature nanomedicine might be of significant benefit to those in the developing world in addition to the developed world, how it may be incorporated into myriad space applications, and how it might be used to facilitate beneficial human physiological and cognitive enhancements in the future. The middle section of the book hosts a number of intriguing chapters that are authored by some of the world’s leading nanomedical researchers, which describe actual laboratory investigations into this fascinating realm. I recommend taking this exciting glimpse (10-30 years out) into the future of medicine.
