Bloodless revolution in diabetes monitoring

Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a wearable blood sugar monitoring device that does not require patients to do prick their fingers to monitor their sugar levels. Non-invasive, painless wearable monitors may encourage more diabetic patients to monitor

Diagnosing breast cancer using red light

Optical mammography is a technique using infrared light to diagnose breast malignancies in conjunction with regular X-ray mammography. Infrared can determine suspicious increases in blood flow and oxygen use in areas of the brewer identified on X-ray, possibly preventing unnecessary

Paralyzed patient feels sensation again

Neuroscientists at Caltech induced natural sensation in the arm of a paralyzed man with a high level spinal cord lesion using an implanted electrode microarray in the somatosensory cortex.  It’s the first time natural sensations have been induced by intracortical

New brain scanner allows patients to move freely for the first time

Researchers have developed a new brain scanner that can be worn as a lightweight helmet while patients can perform normal actions. The scanner will be useful for small children and patients with movement disorders who have been unable to use

Food allergy linked to skin exposure and genetics, study finds

A new study has found that childhood allergies are triggered by genetic factors that increase skin absorbency and environmental factors including baby wipes that leave soap on the skin. The study recommends avoiding prolonged skin contact with allergens and immediately

Smart, ultra-thin microfibre sensor for real-time healthcare monitoring and diagnosis

A research team in Singapore are contributing to advances in wearable health technology by developing a highly sensitive microfiber sensor the width of a human hair. The sensor is currently able to monitor pulse waveform and bandage pressures. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/11/171116092411.htm
