Researchers are developing new techniques for improving 3D displays for virtual and augmented reality technologies.
The benefits people could reap from exoskeletons rely heavily on having time to train with the device.
A 3D printed microneedle vaccine patch delivers stronger immune response than a vaccine shot.
Scientists have captured the real-time electrical activity of a beating heart, using a sheet of graphene to record an optical image of the faint electric fields generated by the rhythmic firing of the heart's muscle cells.
Scientists have used an implanted sensor to record the brain signals associated with handwriting, and used those signals to create text on a computer in real time.
BrainGate researchers demonstrated the first human use of a wireless transmitter capable of delivering high-bandwidth neural signals.
The new device can continuously sense levels of virtually any protein or molecule in the blood. The researchers say it could be transformative for disease detection, patient monitoring and biomedical research.
Using a device that could be built with a dollar's worth of open-source parts and a 3D-printed case, researchers want to help the hundreds of millions of older people worldwide who can't afford existing hearing aids to address their age-related hearing loss.
Researchers explain how computer scientists and clinicians are trying to reduce fatal medical errors by building “ambient intelligence” into the spaces where patients reside.
Engineers have demonstrated that drug levels inside the body can be tracked in real time using a custom smartwatch that analyzes the chemicals found in sweat.
Pathologists who examined the computationally stained images could not tell them apart from traditionally stained slides.
Engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin, then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing.
The clinical trial to determine whether a smartwatch app that analyzes pulse-rate data can screen for a heart-rhythm disorder has enrolled more than 400,000 participants.
Researchers are working on a smartphone app that could help diagnose autism in minutes – and provide ongoing therapy as well, all with fewer visits to specialized clinics.
Research from the BrainGate consortium shows that a brain-computer interface (BCI) can enable people with paralysis to directly operate an off-the-shelf tablet device just by thinking about making cursor movements and clicks.
In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says.
"BactiCount" app and lab kit allow a smartphone to identify bacteria that cause urinary tract infections from patients anywhere in the world.
Wearing a device that identifies other people’s facial expressions can help children with autism develop better social skills.
By drawing in a bit of sweat, a patch developed in the lab of Alberto Salleo can reveal how much cortisol a person is producing. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone but is involved in many important physiological functions.
Less expensive and more realistic 3D models of blood vessels may offer alternative to the commercial standard.
VR brings medical images to life on screen, showing interventional radiologists a patient’s unique internal anatomy to help physicians effectively prepare and tailor their approach to complex treatments.
