The Medical Race Towards Technology

The Medical Race Towards Technology
In every industry, technological advancements are rapidly developing. Automation, computers, and software are just a few of the many improvements. Some industries are more cautious of this technological movement forward. One of these industries is medicine. The medical field constantly has scientists and technicians working towards the improvement of medicine. The only setback with these new inventions is testing them.

Technique enables speedy analysis of laparoscopies

Technique enables speedy analysis of laparoscopies
  Laparoscopy is a surgical technique in which a fibre-optic camera is inserted into a patient’s abdominal cavity to provide a video feed that guides the surgeon through a minimally invasive procedure. Laparoscopic surgeries can take hours, and the video generated by the camera — the laparoscope — is often recorded.

Computational intelligence to improve the management of emergencies

Computational intelligence to improve the management of emergencies
Hospitals and healthcare facilities use numerous databases containing the records of a whole host of physiological variables of the patients they treat. The processing and analysis of these data can enable healthcare staff to anticipate and spot those patients at greater risk of deterioration. Asier Garmendia, a researcher in the GIC (Computational Intelligence Group) at the UPV/EHU, has developed a system based on computational intelligence for this purpose.

Behaviour of human brain influences computing system

Behaviour of human brain influences computing system
A team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Notre Dame has created a computing system that aims to tackle one of computing’s hardest problems in a fraction of the time. “We wanted to find a way to solve a problem without using the normal binary representations that have been the backbone of computing for decades,” said Arijit Raychowdhury, an associate professor in Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

AI could soon predict patient lifespans

AI could soon predict patient lifespans
A computer's ability to predict a patient's lifespan simply by looking at images of their organs is a step closer to becoming a reality, thanks to new research led by the University of Adelaide. The research, now published in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, has implications for the early diagnosis of serious illness, and medical intervention.

WheelAir keeps wheelchair users’ back cool and comfy

WheelAir keeps wheelchair users’ back cool and comfy
Being in a wheelchair for long periods at a time can be difficult on the body in a number of ways. One issue, particularly common in the summer, is the back not receiving enough ventilation. This prevents cooling of the back, creates the buildup of sweat, and discomfort. A new device is now on KickStarter looking for crowdfunding that may be a cheap and easy solution to keeping the back cool and comfortable.

Healthcare hacks offer opportunities to OEMs

Healthcare hacks offer opportunities to OEMs
When we get ill we have no hesitation in putting our health, and potentially our lives, in the hands of trained healthcare professionals – and rightly so. However, the truth is that the medical technology (MedTech) they use is in a vulnerable state.

Standing wheelchair fully controlled by the user

Standing wheelchair fully controlled by the user
The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, recently renamed to Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, has developed a new wheelchair that allows its users to switch between a sitting and standing positions while retaining the ability to move and steer the chair in any direction. The fully mechanical device uses bicycle chains to transfer power from a tank tread-like push bars to either the wheels or the system that lifts its user.
