Novel wearable motion sensor controls gait in multiple sclerosis

The biosensor for monitoring gait in multiple sclerosis (lat. Sclerosis multiplex) was developed by American scientists from the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Currently, in the world, there are, according to various estimates, about 3 million patients with multiple sclerosis. Of these, about 450 thousand in Europe, more than 350 thousand in the United States. Gait disturbance is a common symptom in patients with multiple sclerosis and for the treatment of this disease, it is necessary to analyze the gait of patients who often live away from the clinic.

Etherena is a new single hand use design of the loader for easy and safe insertion of an IUD in the woman's uterus. It has been developed by the Indian company Ticket Design Pvt. Ltd. It provides the doctor with a simple, safe, no-touch aseptic hygienic device. It empowers doctors, caregivers with minimal training to safely install in the uterus with a simple push and pull action of the knob. Susceptibility to infection, high learning time to learn the procedure (significant training involved), errors during procedure leading to injury are some of the pain points of existing devices that have been addressed in the new design. Family planning allows people to attain their desired number of children and determine the spacing of pregnancies. Contraception is important in ensuring access to preferred contraceptive methods for women and couples - is essential to securing the well-being and autonomy of women while supporting the health and development of communities.

A novel patch can diagnose hidden heart condition in at-risk populations

Wearable mobile health devices improved the rate of diagnosis of a dangerous and often hidden heart condition called atrial fibrillation (AFib), according to a first of its kind, a home-based clinical study conducted in part by researchers at the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI). By catching AFib, which can increase the risk of stroke fivefold, in people who are at risk but might have gone undiagnosed, the mobile health (mHealth) devices resulted in more people receiving critical preventive therapies, the study found. With the use of iRhythm Zio®XT patch, AFib was diagnosed in 6.3% of the monitored participants and in 2.4% of the controls. This novel research was supported by a research grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals. Additional support was provided by a National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences grant (UL1TROO1114) and a grant from Qualcomm Foundation.

Wearable robotic exoskeleton technology

The fіrst FDA approved exoskeleton for іndіvіduals wіth spіnal cord іnvented by Іsraelі scіentіsts and commercіalіzed under the brand ReWalk gіves ‘rewalkers’ freedom of movement and hope for an actіve lіfestyle after complex іnjurіes. The system is equіpped wіth the battery, motor and specіal joіnts that power up hіp and knee motіon enablіng people wіth spіnal cord іnjury (SCІ) to stand, walk and master the staіrs. The rіgіd exoskeleton system has been іnіtіally desіgned for the battlefіeld soldiers. Nowadays іt іs utіlіzed at homes by ordіnary people and also by specіal enforcement and polіce offіcers, veterans of the armіes and armed forces soldіers that receіved spіnal cord іnjurіes іn the lіne of duty or on the battlefіeld.

Khapto

Exclusive interview for SPINOFF.COM with Mr. Daniel Zuniga Aranguiz, the CEO & founder of Khapto, about a novel device that was designed for physiotherapy and allows to quickly and accurately evaluate physical activity. Khapto has the ability to visualize in real time the progress of the patient rehabilitation in the way of indexes such as forces, ranges, and speeds. The technology allows doing dynamometry, goniometry and accelerometry, all with the same tool and in the palm of your hand. Medical workers can measure the strength with which their patients are recovering. With Khapto, the user not only captures maximum power, but all the work was done during the evaluation, getting more useful recovery data.
