Technology to Monitor Mental Wellbeing Right at Your Fingertips

Technology to Monitor Mental Wellbeing Right at Your Fingertips

To help patients manage their mental wellness between appointments, researchers have developed a smart device-based electronic platform that can continuously monitor the state of hyperarousal, one of the signs of psychiatric distress. They said this advanced technology could read facial cues, analyze voice patterns and integrate readings from built-in vital signs sensors on smartwatches to determine if a patient is under stress.

Smart Bandage Diagnoses Infection

Smart Bandage Diagnoses Infection

Bandages are great for covering wounds, but they would be much more useful if they could also detect infections. By embedding nanosensors in the fibers of a bandage, researchers have created a continuous, noninvasive way to detect and monitor an infection in a wound.

Insulin delivery in 2021

Insulin delivery in 2021

Insulin delivery is a critical part of diabetes management, particularly for Type 1 diabetics. Delivery of insulin has been achieved by a number of competing approaches over the last few decades, including direct injection, insulin pens and insulin pumps. This articles looks at the ecosystem as it exists today, including the latest developments around trends such as patch pumps and closed-loop delivery within this evolving commercial landscape.

Reversing the Move to Cities

Reversing the Move to Cities

While technologies are emerging for cities to be independent in food, water and energy, safe and pleasant, progress is mostly poor and global warming threatens migrants overwhelming cities. By all means, let us see the smart city advances take place that are in the IDTechEx report, "Smart Cities Market 2021-2041: Energy, Food, Water, Materials, Transportation Forecasts", but it would be prudent to try to reverse the move to cities that the UN and others see resulting in 70-80% of us in them by 2050.
