Malleable 'electronic skin' is self-healable and recyclable

Malleable 'electronic skin' is self-healable and recyclable
  CU Boulder researchers have developed a type of malleable, self-healing and fully recyclable 'electronic skin' that has applications ranging from robotics and prosthetic development to better biomedical devices. Electronic skin, known as e-skin, is a thin, translucent material that can mimic the function and mechanical properties of human skin.

Seizure detection system receives FDA clearance

Seizure detection system receives FDA clearance
Empatica Inc has received clearance from the FDA for Embrace, its award-winning smart watch. Embrace uses AI to monitor for the most dangerous kinds of seizures, known as 'grand mal' or 'generalised tonic-clonic' seizures, and send an alert to summon caregivers' help. In a multi-site clinical study, 135 patients diagnosed with epilepsy were admitted to top level IV epilepsy monitoring units for continuous monitoring with video-EEG, while simultaneously wearing an Empatica device.

Low power MCU at the heart of wellness wearable

Low power MCU at the heart of wellness wearable
It has been revealed that Oura Health's new Oura smart ring utilises Cypress Semiconductor' PSoC 6 BLE microcontroller (MCU), which is supposedly the industry's lowest power, most flexible dual-core MCU with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless connectivity. Cypress' secure PSoC 6 MCU architecture enables Oura users to track their sleep, recovery and daily activities for up to seven days with a single charge.

Supercapacitors power real time health tag vibration alerts

Supercapacitors power real time health tag vibration alerts
Developer of supercapacitors that deliver power to support/replace batteries, CAP-XX has announced that Spire has incorporated CAP-XX Thinline supercapacitors into the Spire Health Tag to provide the power needed for delivering real time wellness vibration alerts to consumers. Offloading this power role to the thin, flat supercapacitor allows Spire to keep the battery small to achieve the ultra-thin form factor of its wearable fitness biosensor that attaches to clothes once, can be washed as normal, and needs no charging.

Turning energy-storing fats into energy-burning fats

Turning energy-storing fats into energy-burning fats
It combines a new way to deliver drugs, via a micro-needle patch, with drugs that are known to turn energy-storing white fat into energy-burning brown fat. This approach developed by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) reduced weight gain in mice on a high fat diet and their fat mass by more than 30% over four weeks.

Cooling glove helps athletes and patients

Cooling glove helps athletes and patients
A cooling device that has been improving strength and endurance in mostly male athletes for 15 years is finding new uses in helping people with multiple sclerosis live normal lives, preventing overheating in Ebola workers and cooling working dogs. In a recent trial in women, it helped frosh participants perform hundreds of pushups in an hour. The idea itself isn’t new. The mitten-like device is designed and built to draw heat out of the body’s core and has been shown to radically improve both strength and endurance.

'Living tattoo': 3D printing programmed cells into devices

'Living tattoo': 3D printing programmed cells into devices
MIT engineers have devised a 3D printing technique that uses a new kind of ink made from genetically programmed living cells. The cells are engineered to light up in response to a variety of stimuli. When mixed with a slurry of hydrogel and nutrients, the cells can be printed, layer by layer, to form 3D, interactive structures and devices. The team has then demonstrated its technique by printing a “living tattoo” — a thin, transparent patch patterned with live bacteria cells in the shape of a tree.

Counting the cost of global healthcare

Counting the cost of global healthcare
As Sui Shieh, VP, Industrial & Healthcare, Maxim Integrated, explains, technology is bringing the world of clinical monitoring and fitness monitoring closer together. The world is spending around $9tn a year on healthcare – to put that in perspective that’s ten percent of global GDP. This situation is even more acute in the US with estimates quoting that healthcare will account for around 20% of GDP within five years.
