A new touch-screen therapy tool could accelerate the recovery of patients who have suffered a stroke and change the way rehabilitation is delivered in hospitals and homes.
(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.
Physicists from University of Augsburg have developed a "smart" coating that is particularly toxic when bacteria are present in its environment.
For the first time researchers successfully reproduced the electrical properties of biological neurons onto semiconductor chips.
Dementia screening could be as easy as using a smartphone app that listens to elderly people speak.
Though identifying data typically are removed from medical image files before they are shared for research, a study finds that this may not be enough to protect patient privacy.
Researchers have developed a new smart speaker skill that lets a device use white noise to monitor sleeping babies breathing and movement.
Researchers have implanted electrodes in brain of a person who is mostly paralyzed to enable him to have some “mind control” of motorized prosthetic arms.
Patients recovering from coronary heart disease who received rehabilitation through WeChat experienced a better recovery than those having standard care.
Researchers have developed a tiny nanolaser that can function inside of living tissues without harming them.
The iStride device is strapped over the shoe of the good leg and generates a backwards motion, exaggerating the existing step, making it harder to walk while wearing the shoe.
Medical implants of the future may feature reconfigurable electronic platforms that can morph in shape and size dynamically.
Using a game, researchers are rehabilitating children who suffer from cognitive impairment after surviving life-threatening diseases such as malaria and HIV.
