Some polymers can expand and contract — acting like artificial muscles — but only when stimulated by high voltages. Researchers in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces report a series of thin, elastic films that respond to lower electrical charges, representing a step toward artificial muscles.
The grand opening of the Center for Engineering and Precision Medicine (CEPM), a partnership between Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (Icahn Mount Sinai), was held March 29, 2023 at the Hudson Research Center (HRC) at 619 West 54th Street. The center is the latest in a 10+ year partnership between RPI, a world-renowned technological research university known for its engineering, technology, and science programs, and Icahn Mount Sinai, the academic arm of the Mount Sinai Health System, which includes eight hospitals and a vast network of ambulatory practices throughout the greater New York City region.
Most of the time, when someone gets a cut, scrape, burn, or other wound, the body takes care of itself and heals on its own. But this is not always the case. Diabetes can interfere with the healing process and create wounds that will not go away and that could become infected and fester.
Engineers are harnessing artificial intelligence (AI) and wireless technology to unobtrusively monitor elderly people in their living spaces and provide early detection of emerging health problems.
Can inexpensive technologies provide a helping hand during birth? A new study in open-access journal Frontiers in Global Women’s Health has revealed a low-cost sensing glove that could do just that.
Bacteria produce gas vesicles, tiny thin-walled sacs filled with air or fluid, to help them float. This captured the attention of researchers at Aalto University’s Department of Applied Physics, who saw the potential for similar bubble-based designs in fields like…
Early Alzheimer’s Diagnostics LLC was awarded a highly competitive NSF Small Business Technology Transfer grant. It will be used to advance the commercialization of a screening tool that tests saliva for the detection of early and preclinical Alzheimer’s disease.
IMDEA Networks research team conducts first work studying mobile data to detect COVID-19 hospitalizations and create risk maps.
The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) and Fogarty Innovation announced today that the program is now available for the TCT MedTech Innovation Forum. The summit will be held on the first day of TCT, the annual scientific symposium of CRF, on Friday, September 16.

Orpyx® Medical Technologies Inc. (Orpyx), a digital health company focused on extending the health span of patients with diabetes, announced the launch of the Orpyx SI® Flex Sensory Insole system and Orpyx Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) services.
There’s nothing like a cuppa to give your morning a boost. Researchers report the first use of waste coffee grounds as electrode coatings for sensitive neurochemistry measurements, which could help scientists get a better handle on brain activity. They will present their results at ACS Spring 2022.
After reports of smart phone and watch interference with implanted medical devices, investigators affiliated with the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) at the US Food and Drug Administration conducted a study
A new innovation that holds promise to fight lung cancer is now in use at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.
New technology developed by the University of Bristol has the potential to accelerate uptake and development of on-chip diagnostic techniques in parts of the world where rapid diagnoses are desperately needed to improve public health, mortality and morbidity.
Researchers have developed a technique that uses ultrasound to provide non-invasive assessments of pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary edema. The technique has been shown to both quantify lung scarring and detect lung fluid in rats. A study on pulmonary edema in humans is under way.
The international medical team that accomplished the world’s first documented drone delivery of insulin for a patient living in a remote community described the project in an ENDO 2020 abstract that will be published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society.
Researchers will discuss how artificial intelligence and drones are being incorporated into health care when they share the latest emerging science during the Endocrine Society’s ENDO 2020 virtual news conferences March 30-31.
The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) offers two, week-long, hand-on courses to help current or recent PhDs transition into biotechnology, medical technology, or pharmaceutical careers.
In Fall 2019, the Center for the Future of Surgery at UC San Diego School of Medicine expanded to address the newest surgical trends, especially those benefiting the brain and the nervous system.
Seven years ago, Jason Esterhuizen was in a horrific car crash that destroyed his eyes, plunging him into total darkness. Today, he’s regained visual perception and more independence, thanks to an experimental device implanted in his brain by researchers at UCLA Health.
