Wearables: wireless sensors that stick to the skin to track our health

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

Imaging: 3D images of objects smaller than a cell

Research & Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

Researchers have developed a new self-calibrating endoscope that produces 3D images of objects smaller than a single cell. Without a lens or any optical, electrical or mechanical components, the tip of the endoscope measures just 200 microns across, about the width of a few human hairs twisted together.

Training partner robot – This is the rehabilitation of the future


Image: Preview image of the video
In medicine, robots are already taking over tasks that only a few years ago were exclusively in human hands. Especially in the field of rehabilitation, they will play a major role in the future. In the "RoSylerNT" project of the German Sport University Cologne, a robot arm from KUKA is being used here for training purposes. Find out why a robot is the right training partner!
