AR Telemedicine Shown To Help Surgeons Guide First-Responders In Battlefield

When a soldier is wounded in the battlefield, it becomes very difficult to give them proper care, because operating rooms are too far from the battlefield. Generally, the Wounded in Action are far more numerous than those killed. A team of researchers from Purdue University and the Indiana University School of Medicine has developed an […]

Energy Harvesting Nanogenerators Offer New Option For Monitoring Health

Wearable medical devices offer a convenient means of monitoring many physiological features of our body. These devices, which include insulin pumps, continuous heart rate monitors, and neural stimulators, need an electric power source to function. Now, a team of scientists at Purdue University has developed self-powered wearable triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-based contact […]

This Wearable Patch May Provide Painless, More Effective Chemotherapy For Melanoma

Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. In the United States, about 100,350 new melanoma cases will be diagnosed and 6,850 people will die of it in 2020. Conventional therapies for this skin cancer include chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, these treatments produce toxicity and severe side effects due to the aggressive and recurrent […]

Smartphone App Assesses Anemia By Taking Picture of Your Eyelid

Anemia is a condition where your tissues do not get adequate oxygen due to lack of healthy red blood cells. Having anemia can make you feel tired and weak. The condition is diagnosed using a blood test that measures hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells. But now, Purdue University engineers have found a non-invasive […]

Purdue Researchers Develop Wearable That May Help Prevent Sudden Death From Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. At least 3.4 million people in the U.S. live with seizures, including 470,000 children. Among these people, more than one-third are at risk of a deadly complication called Sudden Unexpected Death […]

Nanotubes and Nanowires for Strong and Flexible Wiring in Wearable Devices

Wearable devices are gaining popularity by the day. But like any electronic device, wearables and smart clothes need strong but flexible wiring. Physicists at Michigan Technological University studied Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT), which could be controllable by light and pressure. In collaboration with researchers from Purdue University, Washington University and University of Texas at Dallas, […]
