The Sensors Behind the GEN II Wearable Device

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34726
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The population is aging and more people need healthcare support, which is having a big impact on the overall cost of medical care. As a result, authorities and health insurance companies are putting more emphasis on prevention, health awareness, and lifestyle including more interest in monitoring certain vital body parameters. This is why companies in the smart watch and health watch business have seen their revenue grow over the past few years. Buying a health watch and monitoring certain body parameters over a period of time gets the user familiar with these numbers and uses them to adapt day-to-day life for improvement.

 

Cable-Free Brain Imaging

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34800
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Existing electrophysiological and fluorescence-based brain imaging techniques in mice are generally invasive, require head fixes or cables, and are not suitable for long-term recordings. While there have been recent advances in imaging methods in freely moving animals, these are major limitations for researchers that are interested in the brain correlates of social behaviors.

 

Chemists Develop Nanoscale Bioabsorbable Wound Dressing

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34802
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Scientists at Texas A&M University are harnessing the combined power of organic nanomaterials-based chemistry and a natural product found in crustacean exoskeletons to help bring emergency medicine one step closer to a viable solution for mitigating blood loss, from the hospital to the battlefield.

 

Why Cloud QMS Better Supports Regulatory Compliance

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34806
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Companies regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA) need to establish current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs) as part of Title 21 CFR part 820 requirements. This includes creation of quality systems to ensure development of safe and effective devices. More specifically, medical device manufacturers must establish methods and procedures to design, produce, and deliver devices that meet the quality system standard.1

 

Robotics Motion Control: The Complex Relationship Between Movement and Task

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34808
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

As more medical companies seek robots for increasingly complex tasks such as robotic-assisted surgeries, systems developers tasked with building these robots see an even greater demand for sophisticated robotic control and tasking software. Robot motion control enables articulated arms to move through the action of rotating and sliding joints, and mobile robots to move through locomotion and steering. This controlled motion enables these complex tasks with whatever end effector is appropriate on the robot. Task can be manipulative, as when using a gripper, or sensory, as when positioning and capturing data with a camera.

 

Point Precision Is Critical in Medical Motion Control

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34815
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The language used by suppliers of technology solutions aimed at precision engineering applications is vague and, in some instances, confusing. The use of traditional language and words such as precision and resolution without any degree of qualification are just meaningless. This article analyzes the concept of precision. It explores new language for defining submicron- and nanometer-level accuracy for motion control and details why new standards are required to indicate the real levels of precision that different motion control solutions can achieve.

Using Data-Centric Connectivity to Drive Innovation in Medical Imaging

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34798
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Today's imaging systems save lives by making the unseen visible to a degree never before possible. Medical professionals can now view systems within the human body in high resolution, enabling them to diagnose pathological changes while precisely targeting therapeutic procedures. From the operating room to telemedicine, these imaging technologies play a key role in the future of medical diagnostics and therapeutics.

 

Noninvasive Device Tests Sweat Continuously for Hours

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34735
Published 2019-07-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A continuous-testing device was developed that samples sweat as effectively as blood but in a noninvasive way and over many hours. After examining the use of saliva, tears, and interstitial fluid, researchers concluded that sweat holds the most promise for noninvasive testing because it provides similar information as blood and its secretion rate can be controlled and measured.

 

3D Printed Device Detects Biomarkers of Preterm Birth
