Researchers have been working to advance a technology that could one day help people with paralysis regain use of their limbs, and enable amputees to use their thoughts to control prostheses.
(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 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.
Plasma-coated bandages could revolutionise the treatment of chronic wounds such as pressure, diabetic or vascular ulcers that won't heal on their own.
Research found that chatbots working for reputable organizations can ease the burden on medical providers and offer trusted guidance to those with symptoms.
Researchers have developed an artificial liquid retinal prosthesis to counteract the effects of diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
Researchers have developed a smart surface that can actively and repeatedly release and reabsorb substances by environmental stimuli.
Akili announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted clearance for EndeavorRxTM (AKL-T01) as a prescription treatment for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Researchers found that a game could help scientists understand how second language learners learn a new language, and could even help them learn it faster.
Researchers show chatbots could play a key role in helping people with issues around their health and wellbeing.
Newer concepts like edge computing are regularly discussed alongside the cloud within the healthcare sector, often as if they are each exclusive approaches to infrastructure. However, using one does not eradicate the ability to utilise the other.
A new app that helps patients in self-isolation monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and identify their mental health needs has been developed.
Researchers are collaborating with local partners to establish a network of portable, handheld ultrasound scanners that can soon accelerate COVID-19 diagnosis.
Scientists have developed an experimental diagnostic test for COVID-19 that can visually detect the presence of the virus in 10 minutes.
