Wearable membrane for your health


It is not only in summer that it can get hot during sports activities, because sport during winter also hasits pitfalls. Outside it is freezing cold, and insulating clothing is a must. To ensure that we don’t freeze in our wet clothes during our well-earned breaks, Empa researchers have developed an electro-osmotic membrane, which keeps clothing dry and thus warm.

Mobile robot cleaner takes production hygiene to a higher level


Production lines and hygiene zones have to be spotlessly clean. And absolute cleanliness is critical wherever food is processed and medical instruments are handled. Now Fraunhofer researchers have come up with a mobile cleaning device that sanitizes equipment and production spaces to standards in a reproducible way.

Implants: Can special coatings reduce complications after implant surgery?


New coatings on implants could help make them more compatible. Researchers at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a new method of applying anti-inflammatory substances to implants in order to inhibit undesirable inflammatory reactions in the body. Their study was recently published in the "International Journal of Molecular Sciences".

Intelligent ultrasonic sensors for postoperative bladder monitoring


After surgeries on the bladder, prostate or kidneys, a permanent irrigation of the bladder is often decisive for a successful healing process. An intelligent system called "VisIMon" was designed to support this. The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT is developing the miniaturized ultrasound system for automated monitoring of bladder irrigation.
