Acoustic-Powered Microrobots for Bladder Disease Treatment

Engineers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have developed a medical microrobot that is powered by acoustic waves. The tiny devices, which are 20 micrometers wide and considerably smaller than the width of a human hair, can move incredibly fast for their size, achieving a speed of 3 millimeters per second. To put this in context, if a...

Wearable Ultrasound for Deep Tissue Monitoring

Researchers at the University of California San Diego have created a wearable ultrasound system that can monitor deep tissues, as far as 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) below the surface of the body. Moreover, the team employed a machine learning algorithm to reduce the noise associated with movement, helping to obtain reliable readings while the wearer...

Temperature Feedback for Prosthetic Limbs

Engineers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have developed a new technology that can provide temperature feedback for amputees using a prosthetic limb. Excitingly, the device makes it feel as if the temperature sensation is experienced in the phantom limb, providing a realistic experience of touching something...

Urine Test for Parkinson’s Disease

Scientists at Purdue University have developed a urine test for early-stage Parkinson’s disease. The technology involves isolating extracellular vesicles of neural origin from urine samples and then assessing the proteins within the vesicles to detect biomarkers of the disease. The researchers have called their technology “EVtrap” (Extracellular...
