Similar scenarios to those lived in Star Trek’s Medical Department can, in the near future become a reality and revolutionize Medicine as we know it.

A path that, with each day that goes by, becomes more and more achievable, with reality often surpassing all expectations.
A flagrant example of those achievements is the technology that MicroCHIPS, a company in Bedford, MA, has to offer in the near future: micro-reservoirs which can be loaded with medication, incorporated in microchips, implanted in the patient's body and programmed for administering the medication in a timed manner or eventually controlled by radio signals, whose manufacturing is MicroCHIPS' core technology.
