The Internet of Things has influenced several industries, and the medical field is no exception. As we push towards a truly connected industrial world, the medical device industry is trying to find its place in it.
The University of Tokyo has developed realistic muscle tissue for robots that can mimic human-like muscle movement.
New research from Stanford and Seoul University has lead to the development of an artificial sensor system that potentially can act like skin for prosthetics and robots.
Diabetes tests are expected to reach record sales due to the disease's epidemic proportions.
Traditional myoelectric prosthetics require complex motorized systems that are heavy and fragile. The Hennes robotic hand is an attempt at simplifying these systems to introduce cheaper artificial limbs.
These valves are commonly used in medical devices, but can be specified whenever designers want to keep a media being moved isolated and uncontaminated by the activation mechanism.
New research in the field of MRIs has created a new method of capturing the movements of bones, tendons, and ligaments for more accurate diagnosis.
