New electromagnetic device could catapult advances in mechanobiology research into the clinical arena
A new electromagnetic device that enables high-precision measurements of a broad range of soft biological tissues, has established a new standard of precision in the mechanobiology field, say researchers. The method allows for the mechanical testing of tissues the size of human biopsy samples, making it particularly relevant for studies of human disease.
A dive into how AI is helping overcome limitations with current prosthetics by offering improved signal decoding, functionality and more intuitive control.
3D printed parts helped Endoscope-I save both time and money throughout their product development phase.
New research led by a team of scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) has outlined a way to achieve more accurate measurements of microscopic objects using quantum computers - a step that could prove useful in a huge range of next-generation technologies, including biomedical sensing.
Choosing a material for new Medical Device Development can have a major influence throughout your medical device life cycle, from design, prototyping, testing, regulatory approvals, and mass production to commercialization and even disposal. Every material has certain characteristics, which should be in consistent with the properties of the medical device as well as final applications.
There’s a lot to think about when it comes to plastics for medical parts. At the top of the list are safety and, for parts going inside the body, longevity. So, which is the best to choose for your application?
Success lies in open innovation and forging partnerships to further develop deep-tech, medical applications for its technology. So, at first glance, Eindhoven and its semiconductor and deep-tech focus isn’t the obvious place for a pharma company. Yet the founders of Emultech knew they needed to be here, and time has proved them right.
In this episode, we talk about a device developed using shape memory alloys which can prevent and reverse the effects of muscle atrophy.
Alongside aerospace, automotive, and defense, health care has long been—and will continue to be—one of the key revenue opportunities for 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) technology.
Borrowing from methods used to produce optical fibers, researchers from EPFL and Imperial College have created fiber-based soft robots with advanced motion control that integrate other functionalities, such as electric and optical sensing and targeted delivery of fluids.
You want some medical device prototypes or low-volume production parts to verify the design structure, materials or even your whole medical device idea? Or your medical device development is stalled because the structure of low-volume parts is too complex to be CNC machined or injection molded?
Complex surgical procedures place high demands on medical devices. In order to meet the growing regulatory requirements for medical devices, a strict quality control process must be observed and implemented during the manufacturing of the products.
A new method for the miniaturisation of biosensors will enable new possibilities for minimally invasive implants. The miniaturised transistors are fabricated on thin, flexible substrates, and amplify biosignals, producing currents more than 200 times larger than analogous alternatives.
In this episode, we talk about the tattoo-like flexible wearable technology that’ll provide seamless high precision health monitoring for patients and enthusiasts.
