5 things you need to know to make connected medical devices

Bill Welch, Phillips-Medisize The estimated number of connected medical devices – devices connected to the Internet –is expected to increase from 10 billion to 50 billion over the next decade, according to the IBM Institute for Business Value. This is due to the ability for machine-to-machine communication through cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors,

Wellness entrepreneur explains his vision – and surviving a deadly brain tumor

Avi Yaron is no ordinary entrepreneur, but he is definitely an engineer. When diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, he met the challenge by inventing the solution to his own illness. Instead of optic mechanics, he used small silicon chips that mimic an insect eye. These enabled a camera to provide access to both the right and

New requirements you should know for medical EMC

Plan now to ensure your medical devices comply with new EMC requirements by the December 2018 effective date. Since the development cycle can be 2-3 years, it is important to understand the new IEC 60601-1-2 EMC 4th Edition standard now when designing medical devices. To provide you guidance on these important changes and improve your

This contact lenses breakthrough could enable glucose monitoring

Biosensing contact lenses may not be able to self-heal like “The Terminator,” but they could measure blood glucose and detect other signs of disease in the future. Oregon State University researchers are set to present a study that suggests transparent biosensors that are embedded into contact lenses could provide insight for doctors and patients without

‘Electronic tattoos’: Could they be the future of wearables?

Japanese researchers have pushed the boundaries even further when it comes to flexible electronics for wearable medical devices. They say they used a household inkjet printer without soldering to produce 750 nm–thin elastomeric sheets that feel like “electronic tattoos.” The result of the Waseda University researchers’ work was ultrathin stick-on electronic devices using elastomeric “nanosheet” film.

SunTech’s Oscar 2 ABPM features patient diary app

The next-generation Oscar 2 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring system from SunTech Medical is meant to further increase efficacies for general practitioners, clinicians, cardiologists and pharmaceutical researchers. The new SunTech Oscar 2 is now available with the True24 ABPM Patient Diary mobile app, which links to the Oscar 2 via Bluetooth. The True24 app provides

CES 2017: Medical technologies you need to know

Danielle Kirsh, MDO Assistant Editor Updated Jan. 6, 2017 The year’s biggest tech event—the annual Consumer Electronics Show—has been about eye-popping television displays, driverless cars, wireless audio and, of course, a host of wearables and other mobile health devices. Some of the claims should be taken with a grain of salt. (Anyone ever heard of

UK researchers tap AI to disrupt cancer and critical care treatments

UK-based universities are working to create artificial intelligent (AI) devices that can improve treatment for cancer, intensive care, and chronic wound patients. They plan to develop continuous monitoring devices for critically ill patients that can administer medicines or adjust treatment automatically, using feedback from sensors. With such tools, researchers from Nottingham, Oxford, and Warwick Universities

Using magnetic nanoparticles to detect cancer’s early traces

Nanoscale magnets offer a new way to find faint, early traces of cancer in patients, according to Rice University students working on a method to capitalize on the magnets’ properties. Three Rice computational and applied mathematics students are refining a program to analyze magnetic relaxometry signals from iron-oxide nanoparticles that find and attach themselves to
