Serious game aims to save lives of African-Caribbean men most at risk of prostate cancer

A serious computer game aimed at raising awareness of prostate cancer (lat. Carcinoma) among black African-Caribbean men - and prompting those at higher risk of the disease to seek medical advice as soon as possible has been developed by the researchers at Nottingham Trent University. Experts, who are creating the prototype, want to address the disease’s high mortality rates among this ethnic group and the various barriers which prevent them from seeking early advice and treatment. More than 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK every year - and one in four black men will develop the disease at some point in their lives. Unawareness of their prostate cancer risk and symptoms and fear of tests and treatments for the disease are some of the challenges they face.

A low-cost wireless AI heart monitor

A cost-effective next-generation wearable heart and cardiovascular function monitor which uses AI to diagnose heart rhythm and respiratory problems in real time has been developed by a Cambridge spinoff company, Cambridge Heartwear. The company's device, called Heartsense, includes a multiple lead ECG, oxygen sensing, temperature, and tracking device which can be comfortably worn by patients for early screening. Sensors are enclosed in a robust waterproof casing, and the data produced is far more sensitive than that from current single lead wearable devices, as the development team has used their knowledge of clinical anatomy and electrophysiology to place leads for maximal signal output.

An innovative safe and painless microneedle patch

Needle phobia is a common fear for both children and adults. However, with the microneedle patch invented by Chulalongkorn University Mechanical Engineering Professor, Assistant Professor, Dr Werayut Srituravanich, there may very well now be a quick and affordable solution for needle fear.  Through over 4 years of research, Dr Werayut has developed the microneedle - a small transdermal patch used for drug delivery that is low in cost and safe to use. This innovative microneedle patch is not the first of its kind, however, it is economical and takes less time to apply.

A sweat sensor to monitor your health

A fully integrated system that simultaneously and selectively measures multiple sweat analytes, and wirelessly transmits the processed data to a smartphone has been developed by the team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. Specifically, it is for a flexible sensor system that can measure metabolites and electrolytes in sweat, calibrate the data based upon skin temperature and sync the results in real time to a smartphone. While health monitors have exploded onto the consumer electronics scene over the past decade, this device is the first fully integrated electronic system that can provide continuous, non-invasive monitoring of multiple biochemicals in sweat. This work presents a technology platform for sweat-based health monitors.

2C3D is the first camera for blind people

The means of visual reproduction of the surrounding world are a great achievement of mankind since they allow us to shoot beautiful lands and moments of life, turning them into memories that can be viewed in the future. Until now, people with visual impairments, unfortunately, had no such opportunity. However, Oren Geva from the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Israel, developed an innovative 2C3D camera that provides blind people with the ability to see. This groundbreaking camera is a development and design of a tactile camera concept for the vision impaired. It creates 3D photos and videos and has a 3D screen. The screen, inspired by 'Pin Toy', is built by numerous 3D pixels that shift depending on the photo to forms the 3D shot on the screen surface. The device provides the term 'touch screen' with a new and more literal interpretation.
