Augmented reality positioned to disrupt children's health

Augmented reality positioned to disrupt children's health
Augmented Reality has given rise to the popularity of mobile AR experiences and become a standard part of everyday life through TV advertising as a key part of programme formats. Examples include top-rated shows like 'The Voice' and 'American Idol'. The widespread use of smartphones, tablet devices, and systems that facilitate those experiences are creating more compelling and advanced interactions with consumers. Stayhealthy believes that this will be the case when it comes to children’s health and wellness.

The right welding and bonding for medical devices

The right welding and bonding for medical devices
The essence of a medical device is its relationship to the patient. A growing trend in preventative health is wearable technology, like smart watches and monitors placed on the skin. The engineers of these devices must find solutions to make medical technology flexible and durable enough to work on a person’s wrist or hip for example. Michael Garry, AMADA MIYACHI EUROPE explains.

Engineering innovation brings hope for Parkinson’s cure

Engineering innovation brings hope for Parkinson’s cure
The global engineering company, Renishaw, has built a device that has been used in a clinical trial. Manufactured by Renishaw on behalf of the North Bristol NHS Trust, the device enabled the precise delivery of a new drug candidate, Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) with the hope of regenerating dying dopamine brain cells in people with Parkinson’s and thereby improve their symptoms.

Ultra-fast digitiser aids cell sorting research

Ultra-fast digitiser aids cell sorting research
Cell sorting plays a fundamental role in molecular biology, pathology, immunology and virology research. It requires the ability to rapidly search through and sort out cells based on their unique chemical features and shapes. Conventional methods are limited in uncovering these differences, or are too labour or time intensive, or have to trade off between speed and accuracy.

Microneedle contraceptive patch to empower world’s poorest women

Microneedle contraceptive patch to empower world’s poorest women
Innovative microneedle technology is being developed as an effective, pain-free and discreet method of delivering contraception across the world’s poorest countries, thanks to a new research consortium led by Cardiff University and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project will focus on pre-clinical work to develop microneedle patches that have the potential to be painlessly and inconspicuously administered by the user themselves within a few seconds and can last for up to six months.
