MedTech devices of tomorrow

Dear Sir or Madam,

How can prostheses – especially hand prostheses – be controlled more intuitively using non-invasive methods? When we have achieved this at some point, will exoskeletons also become more suitable for everyday use? Or the other way around: how does the improvement of exoskeletons influence the prostheses of tomorrow? There are interesting insights in our video.

You can learn about another product that is not yet a reality, but could change the way patients are cared for, in our interview "Monitoring cardiovascular stents with microwaves".

Enjoy learning,

Anne Hofmann

Neurosurgery: blood tests can show impact on the brain

LAB & DIAGNOSTICS

Damage to the brains of patients operated on for brain tumors may be assessed by measuring biomarkers in the blood pre- and postoperatively. A new study by University of Gothenburg researchers shows that the increase in markers tallies well with the impairment caused by insufficient blood flow.

A cardiovascular stent may fail after implantation. Patients with arteriosclerosis then must undergo angiography again. The condition of the stent is examined or a new stent is placed during this procedure. Barcelona-based company NIMBLE Diagnostics is now working on an easier method to monitor stents after implantation.

Exoskeletons for everyday use: Non-invasive method for controlling prostheses

Video

Image: Preview picture of video "Exoskeletons for everyday use"
Modern prostheses are already intelligent, but they still have their limitations. The Assistive Intelligent Robotics Lab at Friedrich-Alexander-University Nuremberg-Erlangen is therefore also researching a more intuitive and non-invasive method for controlling prostheses.
