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!

Robots and rehab - The stroke rehabilitation of the future

Using 3D lithography via two-photon polymerisation of biodegradable copolymers, 3D scaffolds with substructures on a micrometre scale were produced for the first time. The process will open up new possibilities in the therapy of cartilage-bone defects.
