Franklin Foer, writes ‘We’ve been merging with tools since the beginning of human evolution, and arguably, that’s one of the things that makes us human beings. ‘
Humankind has a very long history of using tools. Stone tools found in Ethiopia, possibly used for digging and cutting, were thought to date from 2.6 million years ago. While today we don’t have to seek out and sharpen stones to prepare our food, many of us are turning to digital tools to plan our meals, track what we eat and monitor how we are affected by food, exercise or sleep.
My guest today, Dr. Kasparas Aleknavičius is a medical doctor turned health futurist. As the head of medical affairs for Kilo Health, he merges his medical expertise with the tech world, exploring the future of health technologies. At Kilo Health, he helps inspire inventors and incubate new technologies. He provides medical leadership, clinical product development and helps manage digital health research and partnerships.
A recent report from Kilo Health, aimed at identifying health technology trends for 2022, states that in the 2 months preceding the report, over 50% of new investment went to design and build tools such as mobile solutions and apps to improve the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers.
I counted the health related apps that I have on my phone and I found 12 apps without even scrolling through my lists. So I was curious to learn what digital tools may be coming on line for 2022.

What A GREAT Podcast! I met Dr. Lockitch a year ago and have had the pleasure of working with her professionally. What a wonderful woman! Gill is one of the most fasinating people I have ever met. If you get a chance, be sure to read her book. It's an incredible story of a woman who had everything, lost it, and is getting it all back again. I'm 80 years old and I'll tell you that I feel younger every time I listen to her podcast. I would give her ten stars if I could.

- So timely!!!April 28, 2021 by alitlc from United States
What a great show! As I watch family and friends deteriorate because they buy into the paradigm of aging means losing health, functioning, and vitality, I feel frustrated and disappointed for them. The strength of the show comes from Gillian’s personal story as well as her medical expertise and qualified guests. I highly recommend this show to everyone because chronological aging does happen but how you run your head determines your well-being
