Surge Therapy wearable sleeve

New Wearable Sleeve Provides Customized In-Home Physical Therapy

When athletes have an injury like an ACL tear that requires physical therapy, they have the best outcomes if they follow their prescribed physical therapy regime. However, most physical therapy programs require a lot of work to be done at home, in addition to live sessions with the therapist. But there’s a problem – many […]
AI framework for health recommendations via smartphone

Harvard, Stanford and U Mich Researchers Propose AI Framework That Delivers Personalized Health Recommendations...

Mobile health (mHealth) apps offer a range of benefits.  There are nutrition-tracking apps that help us count calories, sleep apps are meant to track our sleep patterns, and stress-management apps help us calm our mind. These apps make suggestions for us to follow. However, in these apps, reinforcement learning algorithms that adapt to one’s context […]

Stanford Scientists Develop Fully Flexible Wireless Sensors for Tracking Health

For monitoring health or conduct studies, flexible body-worn sensors are the best choice for wearable device developers. However, sensors currently available are bulky and require charging. Now, a group of engineers at Stanford have developed highly flexible sticker sensors that don’t have any on-board electronic chips or any other rigid components. These sensors are powered […]
Big data predict health risks

Big Data Can Help Predict Personal Health Risks, Stanford Study Shows

Tracking genetic and molecular health data regularly – rather than only when a health condition arises – can help physicians predict the onset of disease and provide insights into the development of highly personalized treatments, according to a study conducted by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and their collaborators. Prof. Michael Snyder, […]

Future Hearables Will Monitor Our Brains to Make Our Lives Better, Says Stanford Scientist

Hearables are in-ear gadgets for listening to music, playing games or medical monitoring. Now, a scientist at Stanford university is discussing hearables that can communicate with the neural signals passing through our ears in order to monitor and interact with our brains. Related Hearables Are Going to Revolutionize Healthcare, Here’s How Poppy Crum, chief scientist […]

Stanford’s Artificial Intelligence Institute Aims to Put Humans at the Center of this Field

The term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ was coined by a Stanford University scientist, while others at the university created some of the most significant applications of it. Now, the university wants to put humans and ethics at the center of this field. Read more IBM Develops Fingernail Sensor That Uses Artificial Intelligence to Monitor Parkinson’s, Other Diseases […]
