Breathable Electronics Pave the Way for More Functional Wearable Tech

Breathable Electronics Pave the Way for More Functional Wearable Tech

Engineering researchers have created ultrathin, stretchable electronic material that is gas permeable, allowing the material to "breathe." The material was designed specifically for use in biomedical or wearable technologies, since the gas permeability allows sweat and volatile organic compounds to evaporate away from the skin, making it more comfortable for users - especially for long-term wear.

Telehealth Rises to the Challenge During the COVID-19 Crisis

Telehealth Rises to the Challenge During the COVID-19 Crisis

Telehealth has been poised to disrupt healthcare for many years, but unfortunately has faced a slow rise in adoption. This has changed in the COVID-19 crisis.

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.

Energy Harvesting for Medical Devices 2020-2040

Energy Harvesting for Medical Devices 2020-2040

One day medical electronics will make all their own power and not need a battery to store it. They will last longer than we do regardless of whether they are on, in or connected to us. With people living longer and heart pacemakers being put in two year olds that is quite a prediction.

3D Printed Sensors Could Make Breath Tests for Diabetes Possible

3D Printed Sensors Could Make Breath Tests for Diabetes Possible

The production of highly sensitive sensors is a complex process: it requires many different steps and the almost dust-free environment of special cleanrooms. A research team has now developed a procedure to produce extremely sensitive and energy-efficient sensors using 3D printing.
