    Rice University students have developed a 3D printed pad with 180 microneedles on its bottom side as an add-on to external defibrillators. This device improves the delivery of current toward the heart, potentially resulting in higher chances of rescuing patients while causing little to no harm to the skin. Full Story

    Many patients suffering from diabetes and diabetic neuropathy are prone to having foot ulcers that can be remarkably difficult to manage. The Siren Diabetic Socks monitor the temperature of the feet and if there’s an unusual increase, as from an injury, they let the patient know thanks to embedded temperature sensors which communicate via Bluetooth to the patient’s smartphone.

    IrisVision, a medtech company based in California, have developed a low-cost visual aid system for people with low vision. The system uses the Samsung Gear VR headset and captures the scene using the smartphone’s camera. It then remaps the scene to enhance its visibility for those with low vision. This scene enhancement is performed using multiple algorithms developed for various eye conditions.Full Story

    The ability to sense the spatial position and movements of one’s own body (kinesthetic sense) is critical for limb use. Because prostheses do not provide physical feedback during movement, amputees may not feel that they are in control of their bodily movements (sense of agency) when manipulating a prosthesis. A recent paper shows how instilling a kinesthetic sense in amputees, allows them to control prosthetic hand movements in the absence of visual feedback. Full Story

    A team of engineers and physicians has developed a wearable, non-invasive system to monitor electrical activity in the stomach over 24 hours using a 3D printed portable box connected to 10 small wearable electrodes which were tested on 11 children and one adult volunteer. They found that data collected was comparable to currently available invasive techniques. “This will help us determine if the stomach is functioning properly - when patients are experiencing symptoms such as nausea and belly pain,” said Dr. David Kunkel, one of the paper’s co-authors and a gastroenterologist at UC San Diego Health.
