Wearable skin and sun safety sensor
L'Oréal announced that La Roche-Posay My Skin Track UV, a battery-free wearable electronic to measure UV exposure, is now available.
Dimension Inx is a 3D printing materials company with a focus biomedical applications. IDTechEx analyst Nadia Tsao interviewed Dimension Inx co-founders Dr Ramille Shah and Dr Adam Jakus on 23 Oct 2018.
Could wearables monitor blood pressure?
A lab simulation model of an artificial artery demonstrates pulse wave velocity is a feasible measurement for monitoring blood pressure. Wearable patches show promise for measuring PWV, making them a potentially inexpensive blood-pressure monitoring option.
Skin sensor could improve life for a million hydrocephalus patients
Most people simply take ibuprofen when they get a headache. But for someone with hydrocephalus - a potentially life-threatening condition in which excess fluid builds up in the brain -- a headache can indicate a serious problem that can result in a hospital visit, thousands of dollars in scans, radiation and sometimes surgery.
Development of wearable device for dermatology research
LEO Science & Tech Hub, the Boston-based R&D innovation unit of LEO Pharma, announced that they will partner with Wearifi Inc and the Center for Bio-Integrated Electronics at Northwestern University to investigate the clinical potential of next-generation wearable electronics in dermatology research.
First example of a bioelectronic medicine demonstrated
Researchers have developed the first example of a bioelectronic medicine: an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves the healing of a damaged nerve.
Electric stimulation treats eye disease
A medical device company with a new approach treats eye diseases by stimulating the optic nerve of the cornea with neuromodulation.
Losing the wires: patient monitoring via electronic skin patches
There are many wearable technology products that focus on getting the user moving. Nowhere is this more relevant than in inpatient monitoring in a clinical setting.
Scientists go deep to quantify perovskite properties
Scientists have discovered electronic properties in quantum-scale devices that are likely to impact the growing field of low-cost perovskite based optoelectronics.
Artificial intelligence accelerates discovery of metallic glass
If you combine two or three metals together, you will get an alloy that usually looks and acts like a metal, with its atoms arranged in rigid geometric patterns.
But once in a while, under just the right conditions, you get something entirely new: a futuristic alloy called metallic glass.
India - off grid economics debate
India is one of those countries where grid electricity is often more expensive to produce than off grid excluding energy storage but grid electricity is much cheaper to the customer due to massive subsidies not available for minigrids.
Stretchable electronics for stroke recovery
Printed Electronics World reports on a groundbreaking new wearable designed to be worn on the throat could be a game changer in the field of stroke rehabilitation.
New fuel cell has exceptional power density and stability
A team of researchers has created a new fuel cell offering both exceptional power densities and long-term stability at optimal temperatures, a discovery that heightens the viability of incorporating fuel cells into a sustainable energy future.
Using crumpled graphene balls to make better batteries
Lithium metal-based batteries have the potential to turn the battery industry upside down. With the theoretically ultra-high capacity of lithium metal used by itself, this new type of battery could power everything from personal devices to cars.
World's smallest wearable device
A professor, working in conjunction with the global beauty company L'Oréal, has developed the smallest wearable device in the world. The wafer-thin, feather-light sensor can fit on a fingernail and precisely measures a person's exposure to UV light from the sun.
Scientists modify CRISPR to epigenetically treat diabetes
Salk scientists have created a new version of the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology that allows them to activate genes without creating breaks in the DNA, potentially circumventing a major hurdle to using gene editing technologies to treat human diseases.
