Ultrathin Fuel Cell Uses the Body's Own Sugar to Generate Electricity

Ultrathin Fuel Cell Uses the Body's Own Sugar to Generate Electricity

Engineers have developed a glucose power source that could fuel miniature implants and sensors. The device is smaller than other proposed glucose fuel cells, measuring just 400 nanometers thick, or about 1/100 the diameter of a human hair. The sugary power source generates about 43 microwatts per square centimeter of electricity, achieving the highest power density of any glucose fuel cell to date under ambient conditions.

CRISPR Modified Stem Cell Therapy for Type 1 Diabetes

CRISPR Modified Stem Cell Therapy for Type 1 Diabetes

Researchers have received $1 million from Canada's Stem Cell Network to conduct research and a clinical trial for one of the world's first genetically engineered cell replacement therapies for type 1 diabetes. The researchers say the study is an important step toward developing a potential functional cure for type 1 diabetes.

Tattoo-like Sensors Reveal Blood Oxygen Levels

Tattoo-like Sensors Reveal Blood Oxygen Levels

Engineers have invented a silk-based material that when placed under the skin that glows brighter or dimmer under a lamp when exposed to different levels of oxygen in the blood. The novel sensor, which currently is limited to reading oxygen levels, is made up of a gel formed from the protein components of silk, called fibroin. The silk fibroin proteins have unique properties that make them especially compatible as an implantable material.

Exoskeleton Helps Stroke Victims Regain Hand Function

Many of our daily activities involve our hands' prehensile abilities. While able-bodied people don't think twice when using a spoon or lifting a glass, these actions are nearly impossible for someone unable to grasp things with their fingers. Emovo Care has now come up with a device that is specifically designed to overcome these obstacles.

3D Printed, Self-Propelled, Endlessly Programmable Artificial Cilia

3D Printed, Self-Propelled, Endlessly Programmable Artificial Cilia

For years, scientists have been attempting to engineer tiny, artificial cilia for miniature robotic systems that can perform complex motions, including bending, twisting, and reversing. Building these smaller-than-a-human-hair microstructures typically requires multi-step fabrication processes and varying stimuli to create the complex movements, limiting their wide-scale applications.

Brain Stimulation Treatments Help Smokers Quit

Brain Stimulation Treatments Help Smokers Quit

In recent years, non invasive brain stimulation has emerged as a new therapeutic option for alcohol use disorder and other substance-related and addictive disorders. NIBS methods have showed promising results for the treatment of tobacco use disorder, but little is known about the effectiveness on long-term abstinence.

New Miniature Heart Could Help Speed Heart Disease Cures

New Miniature Heart Could Help Speed Heart Disease Cures

An interdisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, and geneticists has developed a new way of studying the heart: they've built a miniature replica of a heart chamber from a combination of nanoengineered parts and human heart tissue. There are no springs or external power sources—like the real thing, it just beats by itself, driven by the live heart tissue grown from stem cells.
