ECG vest enables non-invasive heart maps

ECG vest enables non-invasive heart maps
Medtronic landed FDA clearance for its CardioInsight 3D cardiac mapping system that’s used to locate sources of arrhythmias. The system consists of an ECG vest with a whopping 252 electrodes. It’s used to collect highly detailed skin surface electric signal data while the patient is inside a CT scanner. This data is overlaid onto the resulting CT scan to create a 3D representation of the heart and its electric activity.

Discovering how the brain resets during sleep

Discovering how the brain resets during sleep
  Striking electron microscope pictures from inside the brains of mice suggest what happens in our own brain every day: Our synapses – the junctions between nerve cells – grow strong and large during the stimulation of daytime, then shrink by nearly 20% while we sleep, creating room for more growth and learning the next day.

Health monitoring tech makes home a safer place

Health monitoring tech makes home a safer place
Home is comfort. At the end of a long day, home is the place that gives rejuvenation. But, when a person must closely monitor their health, they often have to choose between quality medical care and the privilege of being home. Now the Medaino H.O.M.E (Hands on Monitoring Equipment) makes it possible to monitor health indicators – including ECG patterns, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen level, hemoglobin content, and body temperature – all from the comfort of home.

Nanowire skin sensor measures hydration levels

Nanowire skin sensor measures hydration levels
  Athletes, soldiers, miners, and many others can suffer from dehydration, potentially putting them in mortal danger. Monitoring hydration levels within the body out in the field remains a challenge, but researchers at North Carolina State University have come up with a technology that may prove to be a consistent way of gauging hydration.

YO sperm motility testing and counting at home

YO sperm motility testing and counting at home
Medical Electronic Systems is about to release a smartphone-powered sperm analysis system that lets you see the swimmers and count only the ones that are agile. The YO system consists of a microscope attachment that works with Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones, slides, pipettes, cups, and a liquefying powder. Two testing sets come in a box that will cost $49.

Analysing the effects of pulmonary fibrosis drugs

Analysing the effects of pulmonary fibrosis drugs
Pulmospheres, three dimensional multicellular spheroids composed of lung cells from individual patients, were shown to be effective in predicting the efficacy of medications for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, according to findings from University of Alabama at Birmingham scientists presented in JCI Insight, a journal of the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

AI uncovers insight into biophysics of cancer

AI uncovers insight into biophysics of cancer
Scientists from Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences, the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County have used artificial intelligence to gain insight into the biophysics of cancer. Their machine-learning platform predicted a trio of reagents that was able to generate a never-before-seen cancer-like phenotype in tadpoles.

Technique reveals circuitry of Parkinson’s disease tremours

Technique reveals circuitry of Parkinson’s disease tremours
If a piece of electronics isn’t working, troubleshooting the problem often involves probing the flow of electricity through the various components of the circuit to locate any faulty parts. Stanford bioengineer and neuroscientist Jin Hyung Lee, who studies Parkinson’s disease, has adapted that idea to diseases of the brain, creating a new way to turn on specific types of neurons in order to observe how this affects the whole brain. The work is described in Neuron.

Mobile microscope analyses cancer tumours and infections

Mobile microscope analyses cancer tumours and infections
With the help of a microscope which is attached to a regular mobile, doctors can diagnose for example cancer tumours, infections and tuberculosis. The invention could become a weapon in the fight against antibiotic resistance. A small, simple and relatively cheap microscope which is printed using a 3D printer and coupled to the camera of a mobile phone can be used to assess tumours, bacteria, viruses and fungal cells.

How solvents affect the skin

How solvents affect the skin
Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have developed a method that makes it possible to see how individual molecules from solvents in skin creams, medicated ointments and cleaning products affect and interact with the skin’s own molecules. In the study, the researchers have examined how molecules added to the skin through various liquids and creams affect the skin, and how the same molecules are affected by being inside the skin.
