Wearable Head Scanner for Comfort, Mobility During Brain Scans

Wearable Head Scanner for Comfort, Mobility During Brain Scans

To collect accurate images of a patient's brain, the patient must be still and confined in a tube-like MRI scanner for a long period of time. To better assess their brain function and behavioral health, however, they should move naturally and freely during a scan. Researchers have proposed a solution to both clearly visualize and accurately assess the brain via photoacoustic imaging with a stretchable, flexible material.

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

A team of bioengineers has invented a novel soft and flexible self-powered bioelectronic device. The technology converts human body motions — from bending an elbow to subtle movements such as a pulse on one's wrist — into electricity that could be used to power wearable and implantable diagnostic sensors.

Tracking Muscle Activity with Clothes on Your Back

Tracking Muscle Activity with Clothes on Your Back

Bioelectrical sensors on the skin can be used to measure electrical signals in the body, like heart activity and muscle contraction. While that provides valuable information for clinicians, current bioelectrical sensor technology can be ineffective, uncomfortable, expensive, and difficult to manufacture.

Electronic Glove and Gaming Make Rehabilitation Fun

Electronic Glove and Gaming Make Rehabilitation Fun

After a hand injury, it is important to follow a rehabilitation programme to ensure a quick recovery and re-establish strength and function of the hand. The material belongs to the CareGum family. This particular one is thermo-electric, based on silk and has a number of features that makes it versatile and excellent as a wearable sensor on the human body.

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Some electronics can bend, twist and stretch in wearable displays, biomedical applications and soft robots. While these devices' circuits have become increasingly pliable, the batteries and supercapacitors that power them are still rigid. Now, researcher report a flexible supercapacitor with electrodes made of wrinkled titanium carbide — a type of MXene nanomaterial — that maintained its ability to store and release electronic charges after repetitive stretching.
