The Internet of Medical Things is born

The Internet of Medical Things is born
Having already established itself in the consumer market, the digital revolution and its related IoT concept is rapidly changing health models. Yole Développement’s analysts announce an impressive $9bn market in 2016 with a 16% CAGR between 2016 and 2022. Connected devices are now part of the IoT industry: the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is born. Such developments have been performed in parallel of the numerous technical innovations dedicated to the consumer applications.

Temporary tattoo made of graphene tracks vital signs

Temporary tattoo made of graphene tracks vital signs
A graphene health sensor that goes on the skin like a temporary tattoo takes measurements with the same precision as bulky medical equipment. The graphene tattoos, presented in December at the International Electron Devices Meeting in San Francisco, are the thinnest epidermal electronics ever made. They can measure electrical signals from the heart, muscles, and brain, as well as skin temperature and hydration.

Biosensor stimulates sweat even when patient is cool

Biosensor stimulates sweat even when patient is 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. And unless they are on the second leg of the Tour de France, it's unlikely patients will want to sweat all day for the benefit of a sensor reading.

Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health

Breath sensor to spot diseases and monitor health
Breath pattern recognition is a futuristic diagnostic platform. Simple characterising target gas concentrations of human exhaled breath will lead to diagnose of the disease as well as physical condition. A research group under Prof. Il-Doo Kim in the Department of Materials Science has developed diagnostic sensors using protein-encapsulated nanocatalysts, which can diagnose certain diseases by analysing human exhaled breath.

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves
Having signed a partnership with CERITD, the French Centre for Studies and Research for the Intensification of Diabetes Treatment, Air Liquide is strengthening its position in home healthcare for patients with diabetes. Air Liquide has also acquired an equity stake in 'Diabeloop', the French start-up that is developing an electronic artificial pancreas. With this new collaboration, Air Liquide continues the approach initiated by CERITD based on cooperation between hospital teams and homecare nurses.

Rainbow super sensor receives CE mark

Rainbow super sensor receives CE mark
Masimo has announced the CE marking of the rainbow Super DCI-mini sensor, a reusable spot-check sensor that features Masimo SET Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry and rainbow SET technology with multiple physiologic measurements – including, for the first time, the ability to measure total hemoblogin (SpHb), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO), methemoglobin (SpMet), and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) using the same noninvasive reusable sensor.

Quantum sensor identifies individual atoms in biomolecules

Quantum sensor identifies individual atoms in biomolecules
Nuclear magnetic resonance scanners are now extremely sensitive. A quantum sensor developed by a team headed by Professor Jörg Wrachtrup at the University of Stuttgart and researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, now makes it possible to use nuclear magnetic resonance scanning to even investigate the structure of individual proteins atom by atom. In the future, the method could help to diagnose diseases at an early stage by detecting the first defective proteins.

Quantum sensors herald next-gen wearable brain imaging

Quantum sensors herald next-gen wearable brain imaging
Scientists at the University of Nottingham are working with University College London (UCL) on a five year project which has the potential to revolutionise the world of human brain imaging. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a technique for mapping brain activity - it measures the magnetic fields generated by electrical currents that occur naturally in the brain.
