Microneedle Biosensors Accurately Detect Patient Antibiotic Levels in Real Time

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35621
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Small, non-invasive patches worn on the skin can accurately detect the levels of medication in a patient’s system, matching the accuracy of current clinical methods. In a small-scale clinical evaluation, researchers at Imperial College London have shown for the first time how microneedle biosensors can be used to monitor the changing concentration of antibiotics.

Tips for Reducing Error When Using Eddy Current Measuring Techniques

Aerospace & Defense Technology: December 2019

  • Magazine Article
  • 19AERP12_02
Published 2019-12-01 by SAE International in United States

Inductive eddy current technology is an extremely versatile non-contact method for measuring an object's position, distance, or vibration. Unaffected by environmental contaminants or target finish characteristics, these sensors can operate in a vacuum or in fluids, so they work well for dirty applications, like those with oil or dust present. To get the most out of eddy current sensors, follow these tips for reducing errors that can affect a measurement's accuracy.

Valve Position Sensor Protects Switch Boxes from Salt Environment

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35618
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Salt is everywhere at Frisia Zout in the Dutch city of Harlingen because salt is precisely what Frisia produces. Since the company's plant is located only a few meters away from the sea, salt is even in the air. This poses a significant problem for the switch boxes that control the company's outdoor valves because the salty air causes exposed metal parts to corrode.

Wearable Trackers Predict Death Risk

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35629
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A recent study shows that wearable accelerometers — mechanical sensors worn like a watch, belt, or bracelet to track movement — are a more reliable measure of physical activity and better than patient surveys and other methods used by physicians at assessing five-year risk of death in older adults.

WiFi-Based Technique Measures Speed and Distance of Indoor Movement

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35610
Published 2019-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

A technique was developed that uses a combination of WiFi signals and accelerometer technology to track devices in near-real-time. The WiFi-assisted Inertial Odometry (WIO) technique uses WiFi as a velocity sensor to accurately track how far something has moved — similar to sonar but using radio waves instead of sound waves.
