Researchers have developed a ‘heater’ — about the size of a pill tablet — that regulates the temperature of biological samples through the different stages of diagnostic testing.
Greater resolution, sharper images, and more efficient diagnostic processes – this is the promise of an endoscopy capsule developed by Fraunhofer IZM to allow more detailed small intestine diagnostics.
Engineers have designed an ingestible pill that quickly swells to the size of a soft, squishy ping-pong ball big enough to stay in the stomach for an extended period of time.
Early results from a first-of-its-kind study suggest that typical use of a family planning app called Dot is as effective as other modern methods for avoiding an unplanned pregnancy.
Enginners have developed 3D printed assistive technology that can track and store their use — without using batteries or electronics.
“The digital transformation will make healthcare even more human. It will enable us to provide preventive and personalized healthcare,” says Prof. Dr. Koen Kas, Professor of Oncology at Ghent University, Belgium.
