This knee bandage has been developed in the project MOTEX. It measures different angles of the knee, even during running or biking. The textile sensors that have been used here can be stretched over 50 percent but are still able to read out data with the highest precision.
With VariCoat, Raumedic has developed a single-step process that makes it possible to uniformly coat wires, braids and fibers with a large number of high-temperature polymers, technical polymers and standard polymers.
These implantable electrodes for deep brain stimulation have been developed in the project INFORMED. The stimulation delivered by them can stop the tremor from Parkinson's. You can find them in hall 8a, stand H23.5.
The HSIN TU medical connectors can quickly and easily be mated and unmated by their push-pull locking system. This system prevents an unintentional unmating of the connecting and can be found in Hall 8b, stand D09-B.
For more than 3 million people around the world, kidney failure is a life-altering diagnosis. While about 17 percent of people in the U.S. with end-stage kidney disease are now getting transplants, the average time spent waiting is 3-5 years. These people spend several hours multiple times each week attached to a dialysis machine that cleans the toxins from their blood.
Scientists from ITMO University and Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences proposed a new microwave antenna that creates a uniform magnetic field in large volume. It is capable for uniform and coherent addressing of the electronic spins of an ensemble of nanodiamond structure defects.
Russian physicists have developed a method for drastically narrowing the emission spectrum of an ordinary diode laser, like that in a laser pointer. This makes their device a useful replacement for the more complex and expensive single-frequency lasers, enabling the creation of compact chemical analyzers.
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) developed a robotic arm to facilitate self-help and upper-limb mobile rehabilitation for stroke patients. The lightweight device enables the patients to engage in intensive and effective self-help rehabilitation exercise anywhere, anytime after they are discharged from hospital.
Researchers of Valencia’s Polytechnic University (UPV), University of Notre Dame (USA) and Technological University of Auckland (New Zealand), along with the company Zimmer, have developed a material that improves the quality and durability of the articular cartilage implants used in knee operations. According to tests carried out, the implants last up to 80% longer than the ones currently used.
Researchers have developed a three-dimensional 'organ on a chip' which enables real-time continuous monitoring of cells, and could be used to develop new treatments for disease while reducing the number of animals used in research.
Using engineered nanocomposite structures called metamaterials, a City College of New York-led research team reports the ability to measure a significant increase in the energy transfer between molecules.
