Sensors track dopamine in the brain for more than a year

Sensors track dopamine in the brain for more than a year
Dopamine, a signalling molecule used throughout the brain, plays a major role in regulating our mood, as well as controlling movement. Many disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, depression, and schizophrenia, are linked to dopamine deficiencies. MIT neuroscientists have now devised a way to measure dopamine in the brain for more than a year, which they believe will help them to learn much more about its role in both healthy and diseased brains.

Could a DIY ultrasound be in your future?

Could a DIY ultrasound be in your future?
Engineers at the University of British Columbia have developed a new ultrasound transducer, or probe, that could dramatically lower the cost of ultrasound scanners to as little as $100. Their patent-pending innovation—no bigger than a Band-Aid—is portable, wearable and can be powered by a smartphone. Conventional ultrasound scanners use piezoelectric crystals to create images of the inside of the body and send them to a computer to create sonograms.

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.

BioPrinters could help fight antibiotic resistance

BioPrinters could help fight antibiotic resistance
HP has announced its participation in a pilot program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that aims to accelerate the testing of new antibiotics designed to fight antimicrobial resistant bacteria. The pilot uses HP technology to 'print' pharmaceutical samples. As part of the pilot, CDC will deploy new HP D300e Digital Dispenser BioPrinters to four regional labs in the Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Lab Network, to develop antimicrobial susceptibility test methods for new drugs.

Flexible self-powered knee sensor for rehab monitoring

Flexible self-powered knee sensor for rehab monitoring
A self-powered sensor developed at the University of Waterloo could allow doctors to remotely monitor the recovery of surgical patients. The small, tube-like device is designed to be fitted to braces after joint surgery to wirelessly send information to computers, smartphones or smartwatches to track range of motion and other indicators of improvement.

Training dynamic vision with system designed to detect concussions

Training dynamic vision with system designed to detect concussions
​SyncThink has announced the release of expanded software capabilities to its platform. These new features can now be utilised by healthy individuals to improve dynamic vision, a key characteristic of high performance in sport. The addition of these tools will also create objective training paradigms that will support professionals during a rehabilitation process after impairments have been identified.

Blood pressure monitor for obese people

Blood pressure monitor for obese people
At the European Society of Cardiology Congress, OMRON Healthcare revealed data for the new OMRON RS7 Intelli IT, its first automatic wrist blood pressure monitor clinically validated for use in obese patients, which will be launched later this year. According to the protocol set by the European Society of Hypertension, study results from the at-home OMRON RS7 Intelli IT demonstrated accurate measurements equivalent to those obtained in the doctor's office.

ivWatch vein puncture monitor cleared in Europe

ivWatch vein puncture monitor cleared in Europe
ivWatch has just announced winning the European CE Mark for its ivWatch Model 400 device, the only continuous monitor for timely detection of intravenous (IV) infiltrations and extravasations. IV delivered medication and fluids can accidentally leak outside of the vein into surrounding tissue, creating serious complications for patients. The device works by shining visible and near-infrared light to monitor the subcutaneous tissue and measure changes in the optical properties of the tissue.

Handheld imager to provide insights into eye and brain diseases

Handheld imager to provide insights into eye and brain diseases
Researchers have developed and demonstrated the first handheld ophthalmology instrument with resolution-boosting adaptive optics technology that can image individual photoreceptors in the eye. The new portable instrument will allow improved diagnosis of eye diseases and could enable early detection of brain-related diseases and trauma. In Optica, The Optical Society's journal for high impact research, the researchers report their new light-weight instrument, which measures just 10 by 5 by 14cm.
