New prosthetic technologies that stimulate the nerves could pave the way for prostheses that feel like a natural part of the body and reduce the phantom limb pain commonly endured by amputees.
Wearables are becoming a trend in respiratory care and many products are being developed to monitor patients remotely. But how much can these tools really help clinicians?
Single-crystal flake devices are so thin and defect-free, they might outperform existing components in quantum computers.
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.
Engineers have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin.
The Fraunhofer Institutes project M³Infekt aims to develop a multi-modal, modular and mobile system of sensors for monitoring infectious diseases.
A subset of wearables are the so-called hearables – in-ear devices that are well suited for long-term monitoring as they are non-invasive, inconspicuous and easy to fasten.
Researchers have found a way to use quantum-entangled photons to encode information in a hologram.
Researchers have developed a unique inkjet printing method for fabricating tiny biocompatible polymer microdisk lasers for biosensing applications.
Researchers have demonstrated a novel multifunctional ultrathin contact lens sensor layer with transistors that may revolutionise the manufacture of smart contact lenses.
Researchers have developed a surgical robot that improves precision and control of teleoperated surgical procedures.
Researchers have created ultrathin, stretchable electronic material that is gas permeable, allowing the material to “breathe”.
Researchers describe a way to increase the sensitivity of biological detectors to the point where they can be used in mobile and wearable devices.
Researchers at the University of Connecticut have developed a lensless microscope that allows an observer to enjoy an enormous field of view.
Researchers have been investigating whether artificial intelligence might be used to steer a catheter automatically and reliably to a blocked blood vessel.
A new type of ultrasound transducer should soon be delivering a fast and reliable diagnosis of infection of the middle ear.
Transdermal optical imaging measures blood pressure by detecting blood flow changes in smartphone-captured facial videos.
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.
The sensor system implant provides actionable information to optimize the therapy for patients afflicted with glaucoma.
Researchers are developing a simple retinal prosthesis that could restore sight to blind people. Fabricated using cheap and widely-available organic pigments used in printing inks and cosmetics, it consists of tiny pixels like a digital camera sensor on a nanometric scale.
Scientists have designed tiny optical sensors that open the door to developing a wearable device that allows doctors to medically diagnose people's health in real time.
