From Internet of things – IoT and smart homes to driverless cars and wireless charging, 2017 is supposed to be a big year for technology.

A lot of the buzzwords used in tech today revolve around technology that’s still to come. However, there is one sector in the tech world that has made huge strides in 2017: Medical Technology.
