Endoprotheses: joint replacement without compromises

Dear Sir or Madam,

If a hip, knee or shoulder joint fails due to wear and tear, an artificial replacement is necessary. Patients often have to undergo repeated surgery because the endoprostheses also wear out and have to be replaced sooner or later. In our Topic of the Month, you can read about the longer durability of endoprostheses and the extent to which people with joint replacement can enjoy full freedom of movement.

A successful start into the year 2020 wishes

When natural joints lose their ability to function, they can be completely or partially replaced by artificial joints, also called endoprotheses. Endoprotheses must be of a certain quality, as they should remain in the body as long as possible. In addition to some risks, endoprotheses can also contribute to a mobile and carefree life for young and old.

Wearable AC monitors vital data

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

One day, soldiers could cool down on the military battlefield – preventing heat stroke or exhaustion – by using "wearable air conditioning," an on-skin device designed by engineers at the University of Missouri. The device includes numerous human health care applications such as the ability to monitor blood pressure, electrical activity of the heart and the level of skin hydration.

Robotic trunk support assists those with spinal cord injury

Research & Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

Spinal cord injuries (SCI) can cause devastating damage, including loss of mobility and sensation. Every year, there are an estimated 17,000 new SCIs in the US alone, a rate higher than in most regions of the world. In addition, the rate of SCIs in people 65-years or older is expected to rise in the US, from 13.0 percent in 2010 to 16.1 percent by 2020.

AI identifies features associated with cancer recurrence

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology developed by the RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP) in Japan has successfully found features in pathology images from human cancer patients, without annotation, that could be understood by human doctors. Further, the AI identified features relevant to cancer prognosis that were not previously noted by pathologists.

Predicting spinal fractures

Research & Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

Osteoporotic vertebral fractures (OVFs) are a prevalent skeletal condition in the elderly, which occurs due to a net loss in bone density with the inevitable onset of aging. Unfortunately, they are largely under-diagnosed until detected by clinicians through radiological scans. These fractures have a huge impact on daily lifestyle as the spine is responsible for bodily movements and stability.
