Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors
From quantum sensors to sensor pills that you swallow to soft sensors that can be printed on gummy bears: new sensor technologies will improve medical care. Sensors are now an integral part of modern medicine. They are used to monitor bodily functions as well as in diagnostics and treatment. They record bioacoustic signals, such as heart and lung sounds, biothermal signals like body temperature, and biochemical, bioelectrical, biomagnetic, biomechanical, and biooptical signals.

Temperature sensors help engineers reduce design complexity

Temperature sensors help engineers reduce design complexity
Texas Instruments has introduced a new temperature sensor family that offers ±0.1°C accuracy across a wide temperature range and helps simplify system design for industrial and medical applications. The TMP117 is the first single-chip temperature sensor to offer similar performance to platinum Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) while significantly reducing design complexity and power consumption, and the digital temperature sensor for medical applications, supports requirements for medical thermometers.

Electronic skin patches: beyond medtech

Electronic skin patches: beyond medtech
  Electronic skin patches are a technology with great potential, largely within the healthcare sector. This is because in standard form they can monitor biology; such as glucose levels and activate attached components such as a diabetes medicine dispenser, with a comparatively unobtrusive form factor.

Wearable sensors in healthcare

Wearable sensors in healthcare
By 2050, there will be around 83.7 million senior citizens in the United States, increasing rapidly from 49.2 million in 2016. The ageing population across the western world is no surprise to anyone in the healthcare profession, but medical technology (MedTech) has to adapt to meet these changing needs.

Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note

Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note
What if a single musical note could mean the difference between life and death? A new sensor based on a 3,000 year old African musical instrument can be used to identify substances, including a poisonous chemical sometimes mistakenly added to medicines. The mbira sensor, which can be constructed from off-the-shelf or discarded materials, could offer pharmacists and consumers in the developing world inexpensive protection from counterfeit and adulterated drugs.

Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body

Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body
A new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin could help people detect cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In tests, the patch performed as well as some clinical methods to measure blood pressure. Applications include real-time, continuous monitoring of blood pressure changes in patients with heart or lung disease, as well as patients who are critically ill or undergoing surgery.

Breathing sensor for neonatal patients cleared by the FDA

Breathing sensor for neonatal patients cleared by the FDA
Masimo has announced FDA clearance of RAS-45, an acoustic respiration sensor for rainbow Acoustic Monitoring (RAM), for infant and neonatal patients. RAM could previously be used to monitor adult and pediatric patients greater than 10kg using RAS-125c and RAS-45 sensors. With clearance of the RAS-45 sensor for infant and neonatal patients, acoustic respiration rate measurement is now, for the first time, possible for patients of all sizes, including neonates, in the United States.

The next-gen of sensors and MEMS: what does the future look like?

The next-gen of sensors and MEMS: what does the future look like?
A new momentum from sensor makers responds today to the challenge of global healthcare transformation. According to Jérôme Mouly, Senior Technology & Market Analyst at Yole Développement, these innovations open the door to new business opportunities for mobile healthcare and emerging non-invasive devices.

Using biosensors to deliver personalised doses of antibiotics

Using biosensors to deliver personalised doses of antibiotics
A team of eight EPFL students has come up with a portable biosensor that can measure the amount of vancomycin in a patient’s blood stream, enabling doctors to better control the dosage and reduce harmful side effects. Their technology – developed for the upcoming SensUs international competition – could eventually be used for other antibiotics as well. At EPFL’s Discovery Learning Labs (DLL) – educational facilities designed to promote cross-disciplinary research – a groundbreaking new device is in the works.
