Non-invasive medical device
Imagine a world where a non-invasive patch on your skin can collect critical medical information about your body. Researchers at the University of Illinois are working on a super thin skin patch that can be mounted on the skin quite like a temporary tattoo and can record important data and communicate with diagnostic equipment.

The patch has been designed in a way that makes it bendable and stretchable, without undermining its functions. The most noteworthy possible biomedical applications of this patch could be that it can be used as EMG or EEG sensors to monitor muscle and nerve activity. The level of freedom this patch can afford to a patient will be highly valued as it does not invade the body with conductive gel, skin-penetrating pins, bulky wires, or tape.

This kind of modern monitoring of a patient in a natural environment is better for the cognitive state, wellness, health, and several bodily functions and routine habits, such as behavioral patterns during sleep. For instance, a patient with ALS could use this skin mounted device to communicate or interface with computers and other devices.

Adaptability, Experience & Discipline
Organizations today are recognizing the strong impact of a candidate with a comprehensive knowledge and skill set. The evolving requirements of the technical marketplace are also making employers place a serious emphasis on the candidate’s ability to adapt to different situations in a disciplined manner with extensive experience backing their critical decision making abilities. And so in today’s crowded job market, military veterans stand tall as model employees who have a lead on most candidates due to their wide-ranging knowledge on the general population across industries, fields and geographic markets.

The unique combination of 3 skill-sets that make veterans so valuable to employers are:
  • Maturity and Adaptability – working in an environment that is based on team work and collaboration helps them to work in all kinds of situations. Holding positions of followers as well as leaders hones their ability to work well with different kinds of personalities to accomplish their common goals
  • Discipline and Focus – the importance of discipline in their everyday work helps them to work with a single minded focus to deliver their goals within set time limits within a set budget, which is a great training ground for project/program management roles
  • Practical, On-the-Job Experience – working on assignments that are critical and that can have life changing implications, veterans are familiar with the dedication and sacrifice required to get a job done to the best of capabilities
Thus employers are confident, that with veterans they bring on board valued employees who are mature, experienced and grounded with significant practical experience of working successfully in stressful and intense situations. These are the kind of skills that are necessary for an employee in any corporate setting and thus these factors result in a more successful rate of outcomes as compared to other candidates. And slowly but surely, the trend of hiring veterans is becoming popular with corporate organizations, according to various studies.
