Sensors Inside Football Player’s Helmets Help Measure Force of On-Field Hits

Sensors Inside Football Player’s Helmets Help Measure Force of On-Field Hits

In football, a tackle can supply 100 G’s of force or more, well above the amount that can cause a concussion and more than 10 times the force of an F-16 jet roll maneuver. Now, University of Florida Health researchers are using the helmets of Gator football players to help measure the force of on-field hits as part of ongoing efforts to better understand and prevent concussions and treat them before they cause lasting damage.

Novel Sensor Wirelessly Relays Pressure Readings from Inside Tumors

Novel Sensor Wirelessly Relays Pressure Readings from Inside Tumors

The interstitial pressure inside a tumor is often remarkably high compared to normal tissues and is thought to impede the delivery of chemotherapeutic agents as well as decrease the effectiveness of radiation therapy. While medications exist that temporarily decrease tumor pressure, identifying the optimal window to initiate treatment—when tumor pressure is lowest—remains a challenge. With support from NIBIB, researchers at Purdue University have developed a novel sensor that can wirelessly relay pressure readings from inside a tumor. [More]
