Healed heart thanks to radioablation

Dear Sir or Madam,

Numerous examinations, drug therapies and surgical interventions, but the success of healing seems to be far away? Some patients who suffer from life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias may experience the same success. Can MR-guided radioablation offer healing chances? A patient from Zurich has every reason to be happy. His heart muscle, which is responsible for cardiac arrhythmia, was precisely irradiated with the new method. Discover more about the new technology and the patient's treatment success in our latest news.

I wish you a sunny week,

Robopets can benefit health and wellbeing of elderly

Researchers found evidence that 'robopets' can provide comfort and pleasure and reduce agitation and loneliness. Funded by NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care South West Peninsula PenCLAHRC), the study also found that robopets increase social interaction with other residents, family members and staff, often through acting as a stimulus for conversation.
