Opening up to cancer

Opening up to cancer
Nanosystems that deliver anti-cancer drugs or imaging materials to tumours are showing significant progress, particularly those that respond to tumour-related stimuli, according to a review published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials. However, further research is still required to make sure these delivery systems are stable, non-toxic and biodegradable.

Electronic medical devices are going invisible

Electronic medical devices are going invisible
Wearable tech was born at the point where wireless connected technology grew up and became, paradoxically, smaller. Today, integrated tech that can be discretely worn by users is everywhere – from music and fashion to fitness. Whether it’s smartwatches, heart rate trackers or even clothing, there’s no shortage of integrated, miniaturised tech that allows us to keep tabs on ourselves as we go about our everyday life.

Innovations in tech are changing healthcare as we know it

Innovations in tech are changing healthcare as we know it
Nurses work long, demanding hours to meet the needs of today’s ever-expanding patient base.

Stylish glasses assist people with Single-Sided Deafness

Stylish glasses assist people with Single-Sided Deafness
According to a study developed by students from the University of Tokyo, it is estimated that more than 7% of adults in the U.S. have a certain degree of SSD (Single Sided Deafness), also known as UHL (Unilateral Hearing Loss). However, unlike people with bilateral hearing loss, people with SSD can hardly be distinguished in daily life because they act and speak normally.

Medical devices are copping a new material

Medical devices are copping a new material
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognised copper as the world’s leading anti-bacterial metal. This has led to a number of uses and opportunities for copper in medical applications. Here, Melissa Albeck, CEO of materials comparison website Matmatch, explains the benefits of using copper in comparison to other materials on the market. When you think of a typical hospital environment, you’ll probably think of a sterile setting that is likely adorned in white.
