Is it actually possible that we have come to a perfect place in terms of the design of medical equipment ? I was starting to think ahead and visualize what might be in store for doctors and patients in the near future (no need to go too sci-fi on this really). It can be small improvements like the patient gown, or something as unexpected as replacing the stirrups on an examination table with something else. I don't think that feeling of exposure and embarrassment will ever go away entirely but people will try to comfort the patient during a visit.
What do you think could be improved ? Or did we loose something from the past like the nurse cap ?
