The effects of coping style on virtual reality enhanced videogame distraction in children undergoing cold pressor pain

As anyone who’s been engrossed in a video game can attest to, when a game is engaging, everything around you stops mattering. This is the logic behind “videogame-induced analgesia,” which applies the time-honored strategy of distracting patients during painful procedures.

Digital cadavers are replacing real ones. But should they?

“Virtual anatomy tutorials” such as Holoanatomy on the Microsoft Hololens or Sectra Virtual Dissection Tables are replacing cadaver dissection in many medical schools. Benefits include novel visualization options, lower costs, and endless repetition. However, they may fall short at capturing

Injection of cells into pancreas to eradicate insulin injection need in the type I diabetics

Encellin is working to develop a pancreatic implant capable of producing insulin to eradicate the need for insulin injections in the type I diabetic population.  While still in the clinical trial phase, the implant in mice allowed insulin producing cells

3D printing to regenerate joint and cartilage for those with degenerative joint disease

The University of Maastricht’s Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine (MERLN) have begun 3D printing joints for patients suffering from degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis.  These printed scaffolds are filled with stem cells in an effort to reform the cartilage that

Targeted nucleic acid drug therapy by DNA manipulation

Researchers are developing a way to more efficiently deliver medication of the nucleic acid drug subtype by manipulating the lipid particles in cell DNA.  These drugs have been implicated in better treating not only viral infections, but also neurodegenerative disease
