From a small light-up pad that makes your bruise fade faster to a strip of gel that minimizes scars, new innovations to improve your health needs are on their way.

Inventors, manufacturers and health professionals from around the world descended on Miami Beach last week to make deals and show off the newest and coolest products that tackle everything from diabetes to incontinence to fall prevention and mouth care. The Florida International Medical Expo (FIME) is the largest its kind in the Americas with 1,200 exhibitors from more than 40 countries displaying their healthcare innovations. Some of the products are in early stages, are unproven or still lack approval to be sold in the United States.

Anyone battling the pesky critters known as lice, or superlice, will be thrilled to learn a lice-zapping device has been developed by an Israeli company. Doron Kenigsbuch, founder and CEO of Sphinx Smarthead Technologies says his handheld machine will kill lice, superlice and nits on a full head of hair in 15 minutes using a heating flow system. Kenigsbuch said the product will be on Amazon or sold using a private label in mid 2020 with an estimated retail price of $149.

Also from Israel, Leon Eisen, founder and CEO of Oxitone, unveiled an FDA-cleared wearable wristband that connects with an app and monitors pulse rate, skin temperature, blood oxygen saturation, steps, sleep patterns and respiratory rate. It can also tell when the wearer falls or is about to fall.

Also in the category of wearables, a company from the Netherlands debuted its smart underwear, with the brand name of Carin. The underwear, made by Lifesense Group, has a bluetooth sensor and app and helps women regain bladder control in a few weeks by tracking leaks, identifying triggers and tailoring an exercise program to strengthen the pelvic floor.

“We are happy to get rid of a stress incontinence for women," said Paul Swinckels, director of business development. “In most cases, within eight weeks they are cured.”

Swinckels said he is trying to get FDA approval and have his underwear for sale in the U.S. by early 2020.
