IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2019 Award Winners
At the 16th IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA conference and exhibition held in Santa Clara on November 20-21, three organizations were honored for their great achievements in developing and commercializing printed electronics technologies.
Wearable Tech Could Help People Manage Diabetes
People with diabetes would benefit from using wearable glucose monitors - according to new research.
Ground Breaking Blood Clot Prevention Technology
A partnership between the Royal Stoke University Hospital, part of the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, and a UK industry-leading medical devices company have been rewarded for its use of an innovative bioelectronic technology to prevent life-threatening blood clots in acute stroke patients - winning in the category:
Applied Nanodetectors Ltd
Applied Nanodetectors has developed a portable breath analysis device for the monitoring of COPD and asthma progression. It is designed for early detection of disease and event prevention to provide better treatment solutions to patients. Early detection of respiratory diseases is a challenge and now that breath analysis has become a recognised diagnostics method by the NHS, there is an opportunity for Applied Nanodetectors' technology to improve standards of care
Microneedle biosensor accurately detects patient's antibiotic levels
Small, non-invasive patches worn on the skin can accurately detect the levels of medication in a patient's system, matching the accuracy of current clinical methods.
New AI technology for advanced heart attack prediction
Technology developed using artificial intelligence could identify people at high risk of a fatal heart attack at least 5 years before it strikes, according to new research funded by the British Heart Foundation.
NHS to use AI to improve the health and lives of patients.
A new National Artificial Intelligence Lab will use the power of artificial intelligence to improve the health and lives of patients.
Stimulation of the ear can help manage Parkinson's symptoms
A new study has shown that gentle, controlled stimulation of the ear canal can help reduce symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
IDTechEx spoke to Dr Campbell Rogers (MD), Executive VP and Chief Medical Officer at HeartFlow. This medical technology company provides a non-invasive method of diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease.
People with mobility issues set to benefit from wearable devices
The lives of thousands of people with mobility issues could be transformed thanks to ground-breaking research by scientists. The FREEHAB project will develop soft, wearable rehabilitative devices with a view to helping elderly and disabled people walk and move from sitting to a standing position in comfort and safety.
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation provides anxiety relief
Researchers say it has the potential to revolutionise mental healthcare and could save the health service millions of pounds.
UK's first AI platform for NHS hospitals
Aiming to simplify and speed up complicated radiology workflows, NVIDIA and King's College London are partnering to build an AI platform that will in the near future allow specialists in the U.K.'s National Health Service to train computers to automate the most time-consuming part of radiology interpretation.
Sensor technology to diagnose reproductive health in real time
Researchers have developed new robotic sensor technology that has the capability to diagnose women's reproductive health problems in real-time.
FirstKind, a subsidiary of Sky Medical Technology, is a medical device company based in the UK that has developed a neuromuscular electrical stimulation device for the prevention of venous thromboembolism and for the enhancement of wound healing.
Abnormal chest X-rays quickly processed by AI
New research has found that a novel Artificial Intelligence system can dramatically reduce the time needed to ensure that abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings will receive an expert radiologist opinion sooner, cutting the average delay from 11 days to less than 3 days.
Gene editing possible for kidney disease
For the first time scientists have identified how to halt kidney disease in a life-limiting genetic condition, which may pave the way for personalised treatment in the future.
