3D Printing is Helping Doctors Further Personalize Care
3Today, 3D printing is being used for everything from jewelry creation to producing food.
Artificial Intelligence Boosts MRI Detection of ADHD
Deep learning can boost the power of MRI in predicting attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Researchers said the approach could also have applications for other neurological conditions.
Electrospun Fibers Weave New Medical Innovations
Electrospinning was invented in 1902 and was first applied to textiles in the 1930s. But only now are researchers realizing its full potential.
Sweat holds most promise for noninvasive testing
Making a revolutionary biosensor takes blood, sweat and tears. And saliva, naturally.
Clothing that can charge your cell phone, carbon is the new black
Engineers are leveraging a partnership to create clothing that can charge your cell phone. Move over, Iron Man.
Biosensors will be inexpensive, do more, go everywhere
When it comes to biometric sensors, human skin isn't an ally. It's an obstacle. Researchers are developing cutting-edge methods to overcome this barrier without compromising the skin and its ability to prevent infection and dehydration. By making better noninvasive tests, researchers can open up enormous opportunities in medicine and the fitness industry.
Biosensor stimulates sweat even when patient is resting and cool
One downside to medical sensors that test human sweat: you have to sweat. Sweating from exertion or a stifling room temperature can be impractical for some patients and unsafe for others.
Tricky landing uses fuzzy logic
The buzzword in drone research is autonomous — having the unmanned aerial vehicle do most or all of its own flying.
Wearable captures and senses sweat biomarkers
Sweat derived from eccrine glands in human skin contains valuable information about physiological performance and dysfunction. Importantly, sweat data can be captured discreetly and non-invasively.
Supercapacitors record breaking performance for self-powered wearables
The NSF Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies develops and employs nano-enabled energy harvesting, energy storage, nanodevices and sensors to create innovative battery-free, body-powered, and wearable health monitoring systems.
E-paper displays in consumer electronics
E Ink is the only supplier of electrophoretic displays that are used in e-readers such as the Amazon Kindle.
Electronic Band Aid to measure body performance through sweat
Creating "fuel gauges" for Airmen is the goal of a group of researchers at the 711 Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
Discovery to make solar power less expensive and more efficient
Researchers are reporting early results on a way to make solar-powered panels in lights, calculators and roofs lighter, less expensive, more flexible (therefore less breakable) and more efficient.
E-paper displays in consumer electronics
Consumer electronic devices are evolving fast and there is a constant need for display technologies with new features. This week we look at e-paper (reflective) display technologies and assess their strengths in the consumer electronics market.
Building Electronics on Paper - Workshop by the Flextech Alliance
IDTechEx analysts attended a workshop on paper electronics held at the Centre for Advancement of Printed Electronics. Some key points and highlighted are briefly summarised in this article.
The technology originated from the University of Cincinnati (research from Prof Jason Heikenfeld, who is an Associate Professor at University of Cincinnati). Prof Heikenfeld is Principal Scientist at Gamma Dynamics.
The company hires some lab space in the university, in the Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation (OCMI)
UC and industry researchers predict future of electronic devices
In the first published critical review of technical developments related to electronic paper devices (i.e., e-readers like the Amazon Kindle), UC researcher Jason Heikenfeld and industry counterparts review the next generation of these devices.
Electrofluidics breakthrough could see e-readers with videos in color
UC electrofluidics breakthrough could change the display technology used in a myriad of electronic devices. e-Readers like the Amazon Kindle may be able to display color and video.
