Remote Control of Soft Robots

Remote Control of Soft Robots

Soft materials, such as rubber or polymers that can endure drastic changes to their shape, are promising for applications where flexibility and shapeshifting abilities are paramount. For example, these materials can be used to create soft robots suited for specialized tasks, ranging from medical devices that could navigate around inside the body to robots for search-and-rescue missions that can squeeze through small openings.

Lung-Heart Super Sensor on a Chip Tinier Than a Ladybug

Lung-Heart Super Sensor on a Chip Tinier Than a Ladybug

During a stroll, a woman's breathing becomes a slight bit shallower, and a monitor in her clothing alerts her to get a telemedicine check-up. A new study details how a sensor chip smaller than a ladybug records multiple lung and heart signals along with body movements and could enable such a future socially distanced health monitor.

Off-the-Shelf Cardiac Patch Repairs Heart Attack Damage in Animals

Off-the-Shelf Cardiac Patch Repairs Heart Attack Damage in Animals

Researchers have developed an "off-the-shelf" artificial cardiac patch that can deliver cardiac cell-derived healing factors directly to the site of heart attack injury. In a rat model of heart attack, the freezable, cell-free patch improved recovery. The researchers also found similar effects in a pilot study involving a pig model of heart attack.

DNA Biosensor for Early Stage Disease Detection

DNA Biosensor for Early Stage Disease Detection

Disease detection at an early stage is one of the biggest challenges biochemists and materials scientists are trying to meet. Researchers used nanotechnology in biomedical diagnostics - a process called nanodiagnostics - to create a new, ultrasensitive DNA biosensor. The new sensor could potentially detect DNA-based biomarkers for early diagnosis of cancer and genetic disorders, as well as monitor patient responses to therapies.
