Using a game, researchers are rehabilitating children who suffer from cognitive impairment after surviving life-threatening diseases such as malaria and HIV.
Interacting with a robotic teddy bear invented at MIT boosted young patients’ positive emotions, engagement, and activity level.
Children with autism improved measurably on a test of socialization and learning when their therapy included an at-home intervention with Google Glass.
Researchers have used artificial intelligence to detect hidden depression in young children, a condition that can lead to increased risk of substance abuse and suicide later in life if left untreated.
A video recording of an infant lying in bed can be analyzed with artificial intelligence to extract quantitative information useful for assessing the child’s development as well as the efficacy of ongoing therapy.
Researchers have designed a therapeutic robot that simulates human skin-to-skin contact, helping reduce pain for babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.
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.
A machine learning algorithm was able to sort children with arthritis into distinct categories based on their patterns of inflamed joints in the body in a way that was also predictive of disease outcome.
Researchers have developed a wearable, disposable respiration monitor that provides high-fidelity readings on a continuous basis.
Researchers evaluated a digital medicine tool designed as an investigational treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and co-occurring ADHD.
Researchers use the analogy of raindrops on the sidewalk to explain their new method to identify genetic variations that cause severe pediatric diseases.
Biomedical engineers have designed 3D-printed tracheal splints for pediatric patients. These were used to assist the breathing of an infant battling a life-threatening airway obstruction.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego develop a new non-touch technology that rapidly identifies infants and children.
Researchers have developed a video game to study whether video games can boost kids' empathy, and to understand how learning such skills can change neural connections in the brain.
Are virtual reality headsets a means to decrease fear and pain associated with immunizations in pediatric patients?
The first U.S. clinical trial of 3D-printed prosthetics for children launched.
By combining high-tech 3D printing technology with kickball and pieces of chicken breast, surgeons have devised an innovative way to “rehearse” complex minimally invasive fetal surgeries.
Researchers have developed a wearable, non-invasive system to monitor electrical activity in the stomach — essentially an electrocardiogram but for the gastro-intestinal tract.
