Erotic health care

Erotic health care

Journalists in Sweden have noted an upcoming health and beauty segment – erotic health care. Viamax operates under the philosophy that sex is good for your health. The organic products are based on aphrodisiac herbs used for thousands of years. They offer benefits of smoother skin, reduced stress, deeper sleep and improved mood.

Why it matters

Viamax has moved erotic products out of underground sex shops into health and cosmetic boutiques. Can a recipe of organic ingredients, stylish packaging and a healthy philosophy shift people’s perceptions of an entire category?

Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System have developed an app that allows users to screen themselves for skin cancer by using their mobile phones. The app, UMSkinCheck provides a step-by-step guide asking users to take a series of 23 pictures from different parts of their body. The photos provide a baseline for future comparisons that allows users to monitor changes to a skin lesion over time.
 

The app also includes a risk calculator for users to input their personal data and calculate if they’re at risk of developing skin cancer.

The New York College of Health Professions has created a wirelessly-controlled wearable skin patch that is able to deliver acupuncture-like treatment on demand.


People can already buy adhesive patches that relieve aches by putting pressure on acupuncture points. However this new patch uses electrical currents to provide stimulation triggered whether by touching it, through a wireless remote control or by scheduling pre-determined electrical pulses. The new device is meant to alleviate pain between acupuncture visits with a therapist.
