Smart Devices Require Smarts

Smart Devices Require Smarts

Medicine has relied on mechanical devices to help treat patients for decades. These devices have ranged in complexity from stents and shunts to dialysis machines and ventilators. As we settle into this age of data, the pressure to connect, control, instrument and analyze the operation of such devices and their impact on health has grown exponentially. After all, at a time when my watch can share heart rate and oxygen saturation, surely any…

Fitbit for the Face Turns Any Mask Into Smart Monitoring Device

Fitbit for the Face Turns Any Mask Into Smart Monitoring Device

Engineers have developed a new smart sensor platform for face masks that they are calling a "Fitbit for the face." Dubbed "FaceBit," the lightweight, quarter-sized sensor uses a tiny magnet to attach to any N95, cloth or surgical face mask.

First Fully 3D Printed, Flexible OLED Display

In a groundbreaking new study, researchers used a customized printer to fully 3D print a flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. The discovery could result in low-cost OLED displays in the future that could be widely produced using 3D printers by anyone at home, instead of by technicians in expensive microfabrication facilities.

Wearable Air Sampler Assesses Personal Exposure to SARS-CoV-2

Wearable Air Sampler Assesses Personal Exposure to SARS-CoV-2

Masks, social distancing, proper hygiene and ventilation can help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in public places, but even with these measures, scientists have detected airborne SARS-CoV-2 in indoor settings. Now, researchers have developed a passive air sampler clip that can help assess personal exposure to SARS-CoV-2, which could be especially helpful for workers in high-risk settings, such as restaurants or health care facilities.

Silk's Unique Properties Present Possibilities for Future Technologies

Silk's Unique Properties Present Possibilities for Future Technologies

Silk makes an important biomaterial, because it does not generate an immune response in humans and promotes the growth of cells. It has been used in drug delivery, and because the material is flexible and has favorable technological properties, it is ideal for wearable and implantable health monitoring sensors.

Join the Upcoming IDTechEx Webinar on New Self-healing Materials

Thursday 13 January 2022 - New Self-healing Materials Save Lives, Money, and the Planet. The webinar explains how this is a world of many materials including a lot of silicon polymers such as geopolymers and silicones. It involves many ionomers, hydrogels, polyurethanes, ionomers, epoxies and Diels-Alder polymers but much more besides.
