First fully integrated flexible electronics made of magnetic sensors and organic circuits opens the path towards the development of electronic skin.
Engineers aim to offer minimally invasive surgery through a single incision, rather than several incisions.
Engineers have developed a robotic device that can be used to assist and train people with SCIs to sit more stably by improving their trunk control.
For the first time researchers successfully reproduced the electrical properties of biological neurons onto semiconductor chips.
Introduction of the avatera system into everyday clinical practice in Europe and a broad market launch expected in 2020.
Researchers have implanted electrodes in brain of a person who is mostly paralyzed to enable him to have some “mind control” of motorized prosthetic arms.
Sensitive synthetic skin enables robots to sense their own bodies and surroundings – a crucial capability if they are to be in close contact with people.
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 iStride device is strapped over the shoe of the good leg and generates a backwards motion, exaggerating the existing step, making it harder to walk while wearing the shoe.
Medical implants of the future may feature reconfigurable electronic platforms that can morph in shape and size dynamically.
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.
A comfortable brace incorporates both sensors and actuators to restore roughly 70% of the active range of motion.
A simple innovation the size of a grain of sand means we can now analyse cells and tiny particles as if they were inside the human body.
By speaking the brain’s language, the material is a portal between electronics and the brain.
