Researchers at Georgia Tech have invented a flexible electronic sensor that can be embedded in a dental retainer for real-time monitoring of sodium intake.
A team of researchers from the University of Western Ontario have developed a 3D printed stethoscope that's good enough to use with patients - providing new healthcare opportunities for low-resource areas.
A MakerBot 3D printer was named the Employee of the Year at Kuka, a robotics firm specializing in the design and production of high-end industrial robotic arms.
Biomedical engineers from MIT have developed a drug delivery system that can deposit drugs deep into the brain through a needle thinner than a human hair.
A new 3D printing technique that makes use of a fiber optic cable as thin as a human hair allows for the fabrication of microstructures that previously required extensive and bulky optics hardware. This miniaturization not only reduces the cost of developing a micro-printing system but also enables future work in the endovascular space, printing tissue repairs directly within the body.
Check out This new crowdfunding proposal by Linh Le for Smart Insoles revolving around diabetic healthcare. Its Inspiring to see such groundbreaking Innovation in its element.
A good wrap up of the medical design innovation of 2017. Its inspiring and invigorating to see such interesting concepts and design thought from a wider variety of lenses. Hopefully 2018 brings even more promise and change to the medical field and health care industry.
its honestly great to see progress on MIT and Microsofts concept from 2016 (https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/8/13/12460542/mit-microsoft-research-gold-leaf-smart-temporary-tattoo) Wearable circuitry like these implemented as temporary tattoos that can adapt to wearable technology is the pinnacle of where fashion, smart tech, design, and everyday use begin to meld. Could this be the new wave of functional style and practicality with our devices?
This is a prime example of creating dignity in products that are needed. The idea and sense of why live with something you have in shame when there can be a sense of pride and excitement around the disposition you were born with or stricken with.
The Apple Watch finally starts to break through to new levels of innovation with monitoring of health vitals. Think about the practical applications for the wearable tech industry in addition to medical field. Who knows what amazing collaboritive or ground breaking developments can come from this.
