Sports Data Labs, Inc. (SD Labs), an award-winning leader in collection, analysis and distribution of real-time Human Data from on-body sensors and sensing systems in professional sports and digital health, announced today the publication of a pioneering study in the biomedical journal Digital Biomarkers. It provides the first published evidence for real-time capture, digital processing, and heart rate display from medical-grade sensors in live professional sports competition.
A soft, flexible sensor system created with electrically conductive yarns could help map problematic pressure points in the socket of an amputee's prosthetic limb, researchers from North Carolina State University report in a new study.
A new kind of wearable health device would deliver real-time medical data to those with eye or mouth diseases, according to Huanyu 'Larry' Cheng, Dorothy Quiggle Career Development Professor in the Penn State Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM).
Tufts University engineers have designed and demonstrated new flexible thread-based sensors that are capable of measuring the neck movements, offering information on the direction, degree of displacement, and angle of rotation of the head.
Researchers from Skoltech and the University of Texas Medical Branch (US) have shown how optoacoustics can be used for monitoring skin water content, a technique which is promising for medical applications such as tissue trauma management and in cosmetology. The paper outlining these results was published in the Journal of Biophotonics.
A highly sensitive wearable sensor for cardiorespiratory monitoring could potentially be worn continuously by cardiac patients or others who require constant monitoring.
For people struggling with obesity or suffering from serious health-related problems due to weight gain, gastric bypass surgery, at times, becomes the last option.
In a paper published by the journal Matter, engineers from the University of Surrey together with partners from Harvard University, University of Science and Technology of China, UK National Physical Laboratory, George Washington University and Zhejiang University Ningbo Research Institute report on how they have developed a breakthrough sensor system and manufacturing process.
The huge impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, along with other chronic health risks or diseases, has triggered substantially the need to develop and apply bioelectronics and medical devices for real-time monitoring and diagnosis of health status.
Serotonin is a neurochemical that plays a critical role in the way the brain controls our thoughts and feelings. For example, many antidepressants are designed to alter serotonin signals sent between neurons.
