The goosegg, a primitive sort of EEG, although that did develop later. Of course, Anne wrote about that in response to its use by Apollo astronauts, so it's not her original idea. In Pegasus in Space it's less obtrusive than the stuff used by doctors today.

The Tower and the Hive has portable spectrographs. Today's machines are big things in labs.

I would argue that Trek may have invented the matter transmitter and the replicator. I certainly don't remember reading about any such tech pre-Trek. But I haven't read it all, so...
