Engineers have designed a new touch-sensing glove that can “feel” pressure and other tactile stimuli. The design could help restore motor function after stroke.
Wearables are technologies in the form of sensors or mobile applications that collect health data. We report on the use of bracelets, smartwatches and smart fabrics to measure, monitor and track e.g. vital signs, blood glucose level or sleep data. We also cover the development of smartpatches that deliver medications.
Researchers developed a wearable X-ray detector prepared from nontoxic metal-organic frameworks layered between flexible plastic and gold electrodes for high-sensitivity sensing and imaging.
This overview introduces smart insulin delivery systems and more innovations that help patients and doctors guide decision-making in diabetes care.
A wearable computer vision device can reduce collisions for both people who are blind or those who are visually impaired and using a long cane and/or guide dog by 37 percent, compared to using other mobility aids alone.
A wearable brain-machine interface system could improve the quality of life for people with motor dysfunction or paralysis, even those struggling with locked-in syndrome.
Researchers at Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation have designed a wearable sensor with wide-ranging strain sensitivity.
Researchers show how printed wearable electronics offer the advantage of flexibility and low cost.
Researchers have developed a new low-cost method to help prevent life-threatening foot ulcers in diabetic patients
Researchers have developed a device using accelerometers and vibrators that can be worn on the fingertips like a thimble to help reduce 'postural sway' and improve balance amongst seniors
To help patients manage their mental wellness between appointments, researchers at Texas A&M University have developed a smart device-based electronic platform that can continuously monitor the state of hyperarousal, one of the signs of psychiatric distress.
The University of Texas at San Antonio has established a wearables and AI laboratory to provide precision treatment plans to improve learning among those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
People who compulsively pull their hair – suffering from an affliction known as trichotillomania – could find relief with a new device.
Scientists have found that a simple device can reduce swelling after kidney transplantation. Clinical trial shows shortened hospital stay for patients and reduced surgical site infections by almost 60 percent.
