We’ve all but figured out how to make robots and machines tiny enough to operate inside the human body. The tricky part is figuring out a way to power them that’s safe for the host. In lieu of bulky batteries or inconvenient wires, researchers at Stanford University have developed an implantable wireless chip that can be powered by the same ultrasound waves used to safely image a foetus in the womb.
The web can be a precarious place to find accurate information regarding your health. With only a list of symptoms to type into a search engine, your mild headache could just be a headache…or the early stages of brain cancer. It’s always best to consult a doctor if you’re concerned and Google is trying to make it easier.
There are some pains that are easily resolved with a couple of aspirins and a good night’s sleep. But there are other pains that are far more persistent, and Philips is hoping to provide those that suffer from chronic aches with some drug-free pain relief using a couple of new iPhone-connected devices.
It might be a common fear, but being afraid of needles is completely understandable. Who in their right mind likes being jabbed with a long, thin metal tube? No one. And while Joerg Sprave’s heart might be in the right place with his latest creation, it’s hard not to be even more terrified of just the concept of a syringe slingshot, let alone seeing it in action.
When drug manufacturer Seattle Genetics needed an effective way to promote its cancer-fighting antibody-drug conjugate medicines at a trade show, it enlisted a company called Creative Machines to design and build this amazing ball contraption that actually illustrates how the drug enters a cell and attacks cancer inside a patient’s body.
As useful as Band-Aids might be for a quick fix, they’re rarely easy to apply to your arms or other areas inaccessible to both your hands. And even when both hands are free, the sticky ends of a Band-Aid often end up stuck together if you’re not careful. To remedy this, designer Pei-Chih Deng has created the one-handed Easy-Aid featuring a rigid backing that seems to solve all of a regular Band-Aid’s failings.
If your body is used to consuming alcohol every day, and you suddenly stop cold turkey, you’re going to experience withdrawal symptoms including tremors. They’re treatable with benzodiazepine drugs, but they can often be abused by addicts who fake tremors in order to get a prescription. Spotting those fake tremors isn’t always easy, so researchers at the University of Toronto have created a smartphone app that’s incredibly hard to fool.
It doesn’t matter how much milk you drink, at a certain age your bones start to lose their strength, eventually putting you at risk for broken limbs and even worse: a broken hip that hinders your mobility. So similar to the airbags in your car, this safety belt instantly inflates when it detects the wearer is falling, cushioning areas like the hip bone to help prevent injury.
Even a well-stocked first-aid kit is all but useless if you crack it open but have no idea what’s actually needed for a particular emergency. So these aptly-named Clever Medkits feature a series of buttons and LED lighting that only illuminates the medical supplies needed for a specific injury, and it will even remind you when it’s time to restock.
The stronger an MRI machine’s magnetic field is, the better image resolution and refresh rates it is able to achieve. While most medical-grade MRIs today top out between 1.5 and 3 Tesla, the unit measure of magnetic field strength, GE has recently constructed a unit with the whopping power of 7 Tesla. But that’s nothing compared to the power of the INUMAC.
