With the power of thought

Dear Sir or Madam,

Moving things with the power of thought. How practical this would be when you have your hands full with shopping, but the key still has to go into the lock! What is possible as telekinesis in Hollywood movies, unfortunately does not yet work in real life and in medical technology – but some prostheses can already be moved in this way. Now exoskeletons are to follow for the therapy of stroke patients. How this works can be seen in our current COMPAMED video: Robots and rehab - The stroke rehabilitation of the future.

Meanwhile, the COMPAMED interview is all about 3D scaffolds. In the future, they will be used for bone-cartilage defects. Click here to read the interview.

Enjoy reading and stay healthy!

New skin patch: hope for wearable and all-in-one health monitor

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a soft, stretchy skin patch that can be worn on the neck to continuously track blood pressure and heart rate while measuring the wearer's levels of glucose as well as lactate, alcohol or caffeine. It is the first wearable device that monitors cardiovascular signals and multiple biochemical levels in the human body at the same time.
