Researchers have developed a wireless, private way to monitor a person’s sleep postures using reflected radio signals from a small device mounted on a bedroom wall.
(Bio)Tech & IT
Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and (bio)engineering. We reports on the development of next-gen diagnostic and biotech tools such as CRIPSR and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to make sharing of medical data secure.
Researchers explain how computer scientists and clinicians are trying to reduce fatal medical errors by building “ambient intelligence” into the spaces where patients reside.
The development of new medical technologies based on cutting-edge discoveries has accelerated during the coronavirus pandemic.
An IoT system that allows geneticists, nutritionists, clinicians and exercise physiologists to work together remotely encourages middle-aged and elderly people to train using Interval Walking Training.
A new randomized control trial has found that turning mobile mental health intervention into a smartphone game can potentially improve well-being.
Researchers have invented a new type of surgical glue that can help join blood vessels and close wounds faster and may also serve as a platform to deliver pain relief drugs.
Researchers have developed a technique based on self-learning algorithms that improves the performance of the controller by a factor ten.
Since mid-2019, the Fraunhofer IBMT has been developing an analysis platform as an alternative to animal experiments in drug development.
