Cellulose-based material gives three sensors in one

Cellulose-based material gives three sensors in one

Cellulose soaked in a carefully designed polymer mixture acts as a sensor to measure pressure, temperature and humidity - at the same time! The measurements are completely independent of each other. The sensor may be highly significant in fields such as robotics, healthcare and security.

Implantable 'tea bag' releases insulin for children with diabetes

Implantable 'tea bag' releases insulin for children with diabetes

Children with Type 1 diabetes have only one option to control their blood sugar: insulin treatment. Ravaged by an autoimmune disease that attacks their own pancreas and islets -- microscopic clusters of cells that sense blood sugar and produce insulin -- patients are forced to rely on insulin from an external source.

Electrifying wound care: Better bandages to destroy bacteria

Electrifying wound care: Better bandages to destroy bacteria

Bandages infused with electricity can help heal wounds faster than typical bandages or antibiotics--but for years, researchers have not really understood why. A recent study is offering new clues about the science behind those bandages, and researchers say the findings could help lead to better wound treatment.
