Surgical Sutures Inspired by Human Tendons

Surgical Sutures Inspired by Human Tendons

Sutures are used to close wounds and speed up the natural healing process, but they can also complicate matters by causing damage to soft tissues with their stiff fibers. To remedy the problem, researchers have developed innovative tough gel sheathed sutures inspired by the human tendon.

Smarty-Pants: Could Intelligent Underwear Improve Your Life?

Smarty-Pants: Could Intelligent Underwear Improve Your Life?

It is not uncommon to have a favorite bra, or a lucky pair of pants. Now, innovations in E-Textiles and Smart Clothing have taken this phenomenon to the next level. Imagine a pair of pants that can play your party playlist when you get too sad, or a bra that can turn down the thermostat when your indoor workout raises your temperature.

First Human Use of High Bandwidth Wireless Brain Computer Interface

First Human Use of High Bandwidth Wireless Brain Computer Interface

Brain-computer interfaces are an emerging assistive technology, enabling people with paralysis to type on computer screens or manipulate robotic prostheses just by thinking about moving their own bodies. For years, investigational BCIs used in clinical trials have required cables to connect the sensing array in the brain to computers that decode the signals and use them to drive external devices.

Antimicrobial Technologies - How Do They Work?

Antimicrobial Technologies - How Do They Work?

Antimicrobial technologies such as coatings and textiles containing silver and copper are helping people during the COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring that whatever they touch, whether that is a door handle or their own mask, is free from live SARS-CoV-2 particles. But how exactly do these antimicrobial technologies work?

Screening for Skin Disease on Your Laptop

Screening for Skin Disease on Your Laptop

In artificial intelligence, deep learning organizes algorithms into layers (the artificial neural network) that can make its own intelligent decisions. To speed up the learning process, the new network was trained using the parameters of MobileNetV2, a mobile vision application, pre-trained on the ImageNet dataset with 1.4M images.
