Photonic Biosensor

Microscopic Photonic Biosensor allows real-time oxygen monitoring In Organ-on-a-chip Systems

A new photonic biosensor allows researchers to track oxygen levels in real time in “organ-on-a-chip” systems to ensure that such systems more closely mimic the function of real organs. This is crucial if organs-on-a-chip hope to achieve their potential in applications such as drug and toxicity testing. Read more Stretchable Sensors Will Change the Way […]
EyeControl for ALS patients

ALS Patients with Locked-In Syndrome May Get a Voice with This New Wearable

Locked-in syndrome (LIS), also known as pseudocoma, is a rare neurological disorder in which there is complete paralysis of all voluntary muscles except for the ones that control the movements of the eyes. The condition is commonly associated with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, stroke or traumatic brain injury. An […]

Wraps Wristband Headphones: So That You Never Lose Your Earbuds Again

We have all lost your earbuds at one time or another. Another problem with these earbuds is that they get tangled up and take some time to untangle. Some folks let their earbuds dangle around their neck to prevent them from tangling – but that’s not that all that attractive. Read more Innovative Swings Hearables […]
VR optics

VR optics could help the elderly keep their world in focus

Presbyopia is the natural loss of near focusing ability of the eye that occurs with age. Aging of the eye results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects. Treatment is typically with eye glasses. The eyeglasses used have higher focusing power in the lower portion of the lens. Off the shelf reading […]
VR for prostheses

Scientists Use Virtual Reality and Neural Stimulation to Help Amputees Use Their Prostheses

For amputees, who use prostheses, one of the biggest challenges is getting over the feeling that their prosthetic is not part of their body. Yes, the prosthetic is not part of the body, but it’s essential for the amputee to imagine it is if they want to achieve the best results. One specific problem is […]
Solar Supercapacitors

Scientists Create Solar Supercapacitors Which Could Power Future of Wearable Sensors

In an attempt to make wearable devices lighter and more efficient for all users, a team of scientists have engineered a new solar-powered supercapacitor which can make this possible. The scientists from the University of Glasgow’s Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group described how they came up with a new graphene supercapacitor which could […]
