Flexible film may lead to phone-sized cancer detector
Feb 8, 2016 United States
A thin, stretchable film that coils light waves like a Slinky could one day lead to more precise, less expensive monitoring for cancer survivors.
Band-aid senses temperature, lights up, and delivers medicine
Dec 14, 2015 United States
Engineers have designed what may be the Band-Aid of the future: a sticky, stretchy, gel-like material that can incorporate temperature sensors, LED lights, and other electronics, as well as tiny, drug-delivering reservoirs and channels.
Intelligent packaging for pharmaceuticals
Nov 3, 2015 United Kingdom
The Centre for Process Innovation is part of a UK based consortium developing technologies that will spearhead the commercialisation of intelligent pharmaceutical packaging.
Fatigue-free, stretchable conductor
Sep 25, 2015 United States
Researchers have discovered a new stretchable, transparent conductor that can be folded or stretched and released, resulting in a large curvature or a significant strain, at least 10,000 times without showing signs of fatigue.
Sounding out flu viruses
May 28, 2015 Singapore
Sensors based on special sound waves known as surface acoustic waves are capable of detecting tiny amounts of antigens of Influenza A viruses.
E-skin and pocket-sized diagnostic machines give patients the power
May 15, 2015 Netherlands
Wearable E-skin that can measure heart rate and blood pressure, and paper diagnostic machines the size of a credit card that can give instant readings on blood and saliva samples.
Inkjet printer could produce tool to identify infectious disease
Apr 16, 2015 United States
Consumers are one step closer to benefiting from packaging that could give simple text warnings when food is contaminated with deadly pathogens like E. coli and Salmonella, and patients could soon receive real-time diagnoses of infections such as C. difficile right in their doctors' offices, saving critical time and trips to the lab.
'Smart bandage' detects bedsores before they are visible to doctors
Mar 23, 2015 United States
Engineers at UC Berkeley are developing a new type of bandage that does far more than stanch the bleeding from a paper cut or scraped knee.
Wearable electronics could lead to better MRI imaging
Feb 20, 2015 United States
A researcher has developed a technology to print lightweight electronic circuits and devices onto thin films.
Temporary tattoo offers needle-free way to monitor glucose levels
Jan 21, 2015 United States
Nanoengineers have tested a temporary tattoo that both extracts and measures the level of glucose in the fluid in between skin cells. This first-ever example of the flexible, easy-to-wear device could be a promising step forward in noninvasive glucose testing for patients with diabetes.
New electronic skin for prosthetics, robotics
Dec 15, 2014 1 Korea
For the first time, scientists report the development of a stretchable "electronic skin" closely modeled after our own that can detect not just pressure, but also what direction it's coming from.
