"Target the Back" for the back

Dear Sir or Madam,

Do you know that? You sit at your PC for several hours, get up and want to sit down right away because your back hurts. At the same time, we actually know that too little exercise harms the back. But active athletes also suffer from back pain. The "Ran Rücken" project addresses both target groups and has developed exercises to prevent and treat back pain. In our current interview, you can read what is behind it.

Have a sunny week,

Elena Blume

And how far away are we actually from this future? Many hospital facilities are already on their way to becoming Smart Hospitals with the latest technology and where everything and everyone is linked and connected.

Chip controlling exoskeleton keeps patients' brains cool

Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have developed a model for predicting hand movement trajectories based on cortical activity: Signals are measured directly from a human brain. The predictions rely on linear models. This offloads the processor, since it requires less memory and fewer computations in comparison with neural networks.
