Tumour detecting sensors to reduce follow-up surgery

Tumour detecting sensors to reduce follow-up surgery
Tiny sensors that can detect the spread of cancer through the lymphatic system while a patient is having surgery to remove primary tumours could dramatically reduce the need for follow up operations. Researchers at the University of South Australia's Future Industries Institute have developed an ultrasensitive sensing technology for use during surgery, based on state-of-the-art, nanostructured silicon field-effect transistors.

A contact-less approach to measuring patient vital signs

A contact-less approach to measuring patient vital signs
Murata has introduced two MEMS sensors that use BCG (BallistoCardioGraphic) techniques to detect and measure a patient’s heart rate without the need for any wires or connections. Designed for continuous patient monitoring at elderly care centres, hospitals or in the home, the SCA11H sensor node and SCA10H sensor module can be used in applications such as bed occupancy monitoring and sleep quality analysis.
