Smart bandages designed to monitor and tailor treatment for chronic wounds

A prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver appropriate drug treatments to improve the chances of healing has been developed by the researchers at Tufts University (TU). While the lab-tested bandages remain to be assessed in a clinical context, the research is aimed at transforming bandaging from a traditionally passive treatment into a more active paradigm to address a persistent and difficult medical challenge. Chronic skin wounds from burns, diabetes (lat. Diabetes Mellitus), and other medical conditions can overwhelm the regenerative capabilities of the skin and often lead to persistent infections (lat. Infectio) and amputations.

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.

A new handy sensor can enhance food safety

A new system for testing food safety developed by an interdisciplinary research team, led by Dr Roy Vellaisamy, Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), can rapidly detect contaminants in food within several minutes with concentrations of less than 0.2ppm (parts per million). The new sensor, which can be operated via mobile phone apps, offers rapid and accurate measurements of harmful elements that might be present in some food items such as seafood and meat. With a prototype already in operation, the cost of detecting contaminants is expected to fall.

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.
