Smart insole can double as lifesaving technology for diabetic patients
Stevens Institute of Technology has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Bonbouton, giving the cutting-edge health and technology company the right to use and further develop a graphene sensing system that detects early signs of foot ulcers before they form so people living with diabetes can access preventative healthcare and confidently manage their health.
Graphene commercialization: a look back at the story so far
Graphene is not a young material: the Nobel Prize was awarded in 2010 and the first pioneering firms were established before that c. 2006. Graphene thus has more than a decade of commercial experience already. As IDTechEx have argued previously, after all this time, graphene is becoming increasingly available and affordable and is finally findings its first wave of volume markets. In this article, we will look at the evolution of graphene commercialization so far and will offer some insights about the future.
Advanced textile based sensors
The collaboration will explore using additive manufacturing to build temperature and pressure sensors directly onto textiles.
The graphene community gathers in California
The graphene community will gather in California on November 14 & 15 to attend the largest business-focused conference and exhibition on Graphene and 2D Materials which takes place in Santa Clara.
Connected sensors for the prevention of chronic ulcers
As advancements in connectivity and miniaturization of electronics are made, smart sensors are beginning to find traction within the wound care pathway.
WL Gore: Gore Patch Project
Partnership as part of the Gore Patch Project, working to use ePTFE in skin patches.
IDTechEx spoke with Dr Linh Lee, CEO of Bonbouton, about their progress in developing specialized footwear for the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers. They also presented at 2018FLEX in Monterey, CA in February 2018.
