In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
Researchers have developed a novel skin-mounted sticker that absorbs sweat and then changes color to provide an accurate, easy-to-read diagnosis of cystic fibrosis within minutes.
Engineers have developed a new method that uses light to improve 3D printing speed and precision while also, in combination with a high-precision robot arm, providing the freedom to move, rotate, or dilate each layer as the structure is being built.
Scientists have proposed a new principle by which active matter systems can spontaneously order, without need for higher level instructions or even programmed interaction among the agents.
Researchers have developed a wireless sensor that monitors the health of the baby's brain in a simple, inexpensive and comfortable way for the child.
Researchers caution that consumer wearables are not sophisticated enough to monitor the complicated illness.
Researchers have developed a wireless monitoring system for newborn babies that can easily be implemented to provide clinical-grade care in nearly any setting.
Researchers have developed a tiny nanolaser that can function inside of living tissues without harming them.
The first demonstration of a fully print-in-place electronics technique is gentle enough to work on surfaces as delicate as human skin and paper.
The Open-Source Bionic Leg will enable investigators to efficiently solve challenges associated with controlling bionic legs across a range of activities in the lab and out in the community.
A biofeedback device that is wearable and connects to novel smartphone games may offer people with incomplete paraplegia a more self-controllable therapy to enhance their recovery.
Smaller than an M&M and thinner than a credit card, device can optimize treatment of neonatal jaundice, skin diseases, seasonal affective disorder and reduce risk of sunburns and skin cancer.
