Soft Robotic Exosuit for Stroke Survivors

Soft Robotic Exosuit for Stroke Survivors

To allow stroke patients to recover, many rehabilitation centers have looked to robotic exoskeletons. But although there are now a range of exciting devices that are enabling people to walk again who initially were utterly unable to do so, there remains significant active research trying to understand how to best apply wearable robotics for rehabilitation after stroke.

Researchers Tap CRISPR Technology to Connect Biology, Electronics

Researchers Tap CRISPR Technology to Connect Biology, Electronics

In an effort to create first-of-kind microelectronic devices that connect with biological systems, researchers are utilizing CRISPR technology in a novel way to electronically turn "on" and "off" several genes simultaneously. Their technique has the potential to further bridge the gap between the electronic and biological worlds, paving the way for new wearable and "smart" devices.

Electrics and Electronics Becomes User-Dedicated Smart Material

Electrics and Electronics Becomes User-Dedicated Smart Material

An important new trend is buying electrics and electronics you customise to function not just shape. See the new IDTechEx report, "Complete Electronics as Smart Material, User-Customized 2020-2040". Builders, textile manufacturers, those doing home improvement and others are starting to buy electrically-smart materials direct from materials companies, bypassing the electronics industry.
