A FitBit-like device for figure skaters

A team of BYU researchers, backed by funding from the U.S. Figure Skating Association, have created a prototype device that helps measure jumping performance for figure skaters - kind of like a FitBit for ice skating. The waist-mounted device uses an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer to identify when a skater performs a jump and then calculates the height and rotation speed of the jump. Jumps are the No. 1 thing that skaters and coaches want information about. Most overuse injuries are likely related to the landing specifically. The researchers haven’t, in the past, really had a good way of measuring those forces.

Micro-manufacturing technology promises a revolution in blood testing

A 3D printed 'lab on a chip' could soon be used to conduct laboratory-scale blood testing that’s affordable, accessible and done in an instant. A scientific team at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) are working to perfect a fabrication process that will deliver an ID card-sized device that can perform multiple tests with a just few drops of blood. Currently, the device, created as a prototype in UTS’s Protospace 3D printing facilities, allows researchers to conduct multiple blood tests using only a few drops of blood. It promises less of a burden to patients requiring blood testing.

A device for studies of human interaction, dementia and movement disorders

A miniaturized PET brain scanner has been developed by the team of researchers at West Virginia University and the University of Virginia. The scanner can be 'worn' like a helmet, allowing research subjects to stand and make movements as the device scans. This Ambulatory Microdose Positron Emission Tomography (AMPET) scanner could launch new psychological and clinical studies on how the brain functions when affected by diseases from epilepsy to addiction and during ordinary and dysfunctional social interactions. Scientists could use AMPET to study Alzheimer’s (lat. morbus Alzheimerianus) or traumatic brain injuries, or even our sense of balance.

A wearable device suppresses arm tremor

Semi-Active Arm Tremor Orthosis device or SATO was designed to stabilize the hand tremor of users, which have the Parkinson disease. It is an intelligent, portable and wearable tremor suppression device that give users the capacity to perform their routine activities. SATO uses a smart fluid, which provides the function of resistance to tremor.

Biodegradable sensor that helps doctors monitor serious health conditions

A biodegradable sensor whіch could help doctors monitor chronic lung disease, swelling of the brain, and other medical conditions before dissolving harmlessly in a patient's body has been developed by the researchers from thе University of Connecticut. The small, flexible sensor is made of medically safe materials already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in surgical sutures, bone grafts, and medical implants. It is designed to replace existing implantable pressure sensors that have potentially toxic components.
