Fujitsu and RIKEN: research next-gen IT drug discovery technology
Fujitsu Limited and RIKEN have launched a joint research project on next-gen IT drug discovery technology utilising the supercomputer Fugaku, aiming to accelerate DX (digital transformation) in drug discovery, explore promising new areas in this process, and reduce development period and costs for new drug development.
Untethering smartwatches: introducing 'RedCap'
This article from Paddy Williams, Director of Product Marketing for CEVA’s Connectivity Business Unit looks at the wearables market and considers how innovation, such as RedCap (reduced capacity), can improve smart watches.
At-home medical testing using smartphone-powered microchip
Researchers have developed a new microfluidic chip that can detect diseases using a minimal number of components and can be powered wirelessly by a smartphone.
MIT’s pneumatic, knitted gloves
MIT’s CSAIL (Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory) researchers have introduced an assistive knitted glove that grants wearers a reinforced hand grip using the sensing and feedback of pneumatic actuator technology.
Simulated patient treatment in Europe's first BNCT facility
Neutron Therapeutics, a targeted radiation therapy company focused on BNCT (Boron Neutron Capture Therapy), and Cosylab, the world’s leading provider of control systems, have announced that Neutron's nuBeam BNCT System, using Cosylab's OncologyOne software, has reached a significant milestone in its clinical commissioning at Helsinki University Hospital – marking the first simulated patient treatment.
LoRaWAN-based air-quality monitoring & contact tracing in buildings shows promise for controlling viruses’ spread
Combining off-the-shelf IoT technologies and equipment with new mathematical models that simulated the propagation of COVID-19, a pilot solution at a Paris university hospital centre has demonstrated how building managers in the future can limit the spread of viruses such as COVID-19.
Implants: a different type of ‘back-handed’ payment
Now more than ever before, people are reliant on technology, particularly their smartphones and smartwatches. But most people’s devices are on them – not in them. That’s where tech implants come in: this article looks at what tech implants are, how some of them work, and what users may think about such a controversial use of technology.
Robotic system revolutionises biotechnology and fights COVID-19
Developed at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IBCH PAS), alongside Mitsubishi Electric, Labomatica and Perlan Technologies, the AGAMEDE robotic system was designed to significantly speed up the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2. Garry Lewis, Marketing & Communications Manager UK, Mitsubishi Electric Europe discusses.
The use of AI in real-world healthcare decision making
TurinTech is looking to set the scene in the artificial intelligence (AI) space, by using AI to optimise code, and thereby models that rely on code to help healthcare professionals make better life-critical decisions. Electronic Specifier’s Kiera Sowery discussed AI efficiency for real-world decision making, healthcare wearables, and AI explainability with CEO and Founder, Dr Leslie Kanthan.
Medical ventilators: the components and sensors needed in essential medical care
A form of life support treatment, medical ventilators are vital for assisting with a patient’s breathing when they are unable to breathe sufficiently on their own. Rodrigue Mao, Head of Product Management, Distrelec looks at the basic components that are common to all ventilators.
