Successful implantation of heart pump with power cable

Successful implantation of heart pump with power cable
  In March 2017, the Cardiovascular Surgery Group at Osaka University successfully implanted a left ventricular assist device with an internal power cable tunneled through the neck to the head in a patient who was ineligible for a cardiac transplantation, destination therapy (DT) trial, a Japan first. The patient was recently discharged.

EEG system achieves highest signal resolution

EEG system achieves highest signal resolution
Carnegie Mellon University engineers and cognitive neuroscientists have demonstrated that a new high-density EEG can capture the brain’s neural activity at a higher spatial resolution than ever before. This next generation brain-interface technology is the first non-invasive, high-resolution system of its kind, providing higher density and coverage than any existing system. It has the potential to revolutionise future clinical and neuroscience research as well as brain-computer interfaces.

Smartphone case offers blood glucose monitoring on the go

Smartphone case offers blood glucose monitoring on the go
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a smartphone case and app that will make it easier for patients to record and track their blood glucose readings, whether they’re at home or on the go. Currently, checking blood sugar levels can be a hassle for people with diabetes, especially when they have to pack their glucose monitoring kits around with them every time they leave the house.

Device for Apple Watch detects atrial fibrillation

Device for Apple Watch detects atrial fibrillation
AliveCor has announced FDA clearance of KardiaBand in the U.S., allowing Apple Watch users to discreetly capture their EKG anytime, anywhere in order to quickly detect normal sinus heart rhythms and atrial fibrillation (AFib), the most common heart arrhythmia. The first FDA-cleared medical device accessory for Apple Watch, KardiaBand can record an EKG in 30 seconds with just a touch of its integrated sensor. Results from the Kardia App are displayed on the face of Apple Watch.

RICOH MEG receives FDA 510(k) Clearance

RICOH MEG receives FDA 510(k) Clearance
Ricoh has announced that the RICOH MEG Measurement System has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA. RICOH MEG, Ricoh's magnetoencephalography system, is a noninvasive way to detect faint signals within the brain. It provides deeper measurement (hippocampus and hypothalamus), clearer signal using coaxial gradiometer sensors and greater patient comfort for better data acquisition.

Continuous IOP monitor validated in initial trials

Continuous IOP monitor validated in initial trials
Implandata has announced that the first patients has been implanted with its EYEMATE continuous intraocular pressure (IOP) monitor and the technology passed initial validation. Glaucoma, as well as a few other less common eye conditions, require regular IOP measurements in order to properly adjust how much medications to take. Typically, this is done at the doctor’s office using a handheld tonometer, but such measurements are performed infrequently and vary significantly throughout even a single day.

Hands-free ultrasound improves reproducibility of images

Hands-free ultrasound improves reproducibility of images
Usono has created a kind of ultrasound accessory that is an important diagnostic tool as well as a way to improve reproducibility of ultrasound images. ProbeFix is a fixation system for transthoracic ultrasound probes that allows doctors to effortlessly image patients’ hearts without having to strain to hold the probe in place during exams. At World of Health Care 2017 held in Holland earlier this year, visitors voted Usono the winner of the Smart Solutions Award.
