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.

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.

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.

Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics

Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics
A research team at the Center for Nanoparticle Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), has succeeded in developing a wearable and implantable device, that measures electrophysiological signals and applies electrical and thermal stimulations. It provides information on muscle and cardiac dysfunctions, and thus could be implemented for pain relief, rehabilitation, and prosthetic motor control.

A health check for the electronics industry

A health check for the electronics industry
As medical devices become smaller and more connected, Steve Rogerson looks at how the electronics industry is coping. Worldwide, the health industry is in the middle of a revolution that is seeing more and more people take control of their own well-being. Hospitals stretched beyond capacity are welcoming the move to patients being cared for in their own homes using remote monitoring equipment. Consumers are buying wearable devices that can measure activity and heart rhythm.
