Researchers have developed the first-ever transient pacemaker — a wireless, battery-free, fully implantable pacing device that disappears after it’s no longer needed.
(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.
Chatbots hold promise for dementia patient or caregiver support, but are still in their infancy, new research finds. None of the interactive digital apps tested performed well on all testing criteria.
Researchers have developed a new material that can facilitate a near-perfect merger between machines and the human body for diagnostics and treatment.
To help patients manage their mental wellness between appointments, researchers at Texas A&M University have developed a smart device-based electronic platform that can continuously monitor the state of hyperarousal, one of the signs of psychiatric distress.
Progressive Mechanoporation makes it possible to mechanically disrupt the membranes of cells for a short time period and let drugs or genes inside cells.
Scientists in Dresden are expanding their digital health expertise in multiple sclerosis (MS) therapy and research with an ambitious scientific project - creating a "digital twin“ from data.
Engineers have developed the smallest single-chip system that is a complete functioning electronic circuit - and implantable chip visible only in a microscope.
Scientists have developed a new generation of microneedles technology which allows the intradermal delivery of living cells in a minimally invasive manner.
Researchers have experimentally demonstrated a novel cancer diagnosis technique based on the scattering of circularly polarized light.
