Therapy seeks to improve recovery after stroke

  Strokes are the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States, and they can happen at any age. For many, a stroke affects the mobility of their arms and hands, making it difficult to perform routine, everyday tasks. But experts are studying a new approach to stroke rehabilitation that could help patients recover their motor skills sooner.

3D-printed aortas advise on best choice for heart patients

Engineers are exploring applications for 3D printers in the medical field, and the newest research is going from the lab to the operating room. Experts at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center use CT scans to model a patient’s aorta, then create a 3D-printed replica down to its exact texture based on the calcification in a patient’s tissue. “Using a simulator in a lab, we can replicate what happens in a patient&rs...

A clean way of producing fossil fuel technology

Engineers at The Ohio State University are developing technologies that have the potential to economically convert fossil fuels and biomass into useful products including electricity without emitting carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. In the first of two papers published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science, the engineers report that they’ve devised a process that transforms shale gas into products such as methanol and...

InterAtrial shunt device shows promise in diastolic heart failure

Results presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions and published in Circulation show that a new device designed to treat diastolic heart failure is safe and effective. The first patient in the randomised, blinded study was enrolled at The Ohio State University Ross Heart Hospital, which also enrolled the most patients in the trial. Diastolic heart failure (DHF) occurs when the heart muscle becomes stiff and doe...

Take another little piece of my heart

Detecting the source of errant electric signals in the heart that cause cardiac arrhythmias, as well as understanding what causes them, has been a notoriously difficult challenge for both physicians and researchers. This is because the heart is difficult to study, but researchers at Ohio State University have come up with a new technique that keeps myocardial tissue beating and alive in vitro long enough to study using video cameras.

Why the FDA should increase regulations on 'filtered' cigarettes

A study shows that so-called 'light' cigarettes have no health benefits to smokers and have likely contributed to the rise of a certain form of lung cancer that occurs deep in the lungs. For this new study, researchers at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute and five other universities/cancer centers examined why the most common type of lung cancer, c...

Devices help study how kids with cochlear implants learn

At the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center scientists are working on figuring out how young deaf kids adjust to their new cochlear implants and how they utilise the technology to study the world around them. While the devices liberate the hearing sense, children with cochlear implants are not as quick to learn new words as children with normal hearing. The research team has setup a special play room that has a bunch of cameras that c...

Pathology in your pocket

An Ohio State University engineering professor and PhD candidate want to change how medical and research laboratories analyse patient samples. Biomedical Engineering Associate Professor YI Zhao and Graduate Research Assistant Hanyang Huang have invented a smartphone-based, portable pathology slide scanner. In January, the pair received a $225,000 National Science Foundation Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I award.

LEDs may offer better way to clean water in remote areas

For the first time, researchers have created LEDs on lightweight flexible metal foil. Engineers at The Ohio State University are developing the foil based LEDs for portable ultraviolet (UV) lights that soldiers and others can use to purify drinking water and sterilise medical equipment. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, the researchers describe how they designed the LEDs to shine in the high-energy "deep" end of the UV spectrum.

Implanted device treats central sleep apnea

Results from an international, randomised study show that an implanted nerve stimulator significantly improves symptoms in those with central sleep apnea, without causing serious side effects. Dr. William Abraham, co-lead author and director of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, presented findings from the study at the recent European Society of Cardiology Congress in Rome. The study i...

Thin plastic membrane allows for rapid recharging

Researchers have designed a thin plastic membrane that stops rechargeable batteries from discharging when not in use and allows for rapid recharging. The patent-pending technology controls how charge flows inside a battery, and was inspired by how living cell membranes transport proteins in the body. It could find applications in high powered "supercapacitors" for electric cars and even help prevent the kinds of fires that plagued some model...

Turning good vibrations into energy

New tools for harvesting wind energy may soon look less like giant windmills and more like tiny leafless trees. A project at The Ohio State University is testing whether high-tech objects that look a bit like artificial trees can generate renewable power when they are shaken by the wind—or by the sway of a tall building, traffic on a bridge or even seismic activity.
