3D Printed Fingertip Feels Like Human Skin

Machines can beat the world's best chess player, but they cannot handle a chess piece as well as an infant. This lack of robot dexterity is partly because artificial grippers lack the fine tactile sense of the human fingertip, which is used to guide our hands as we pick up and handle objects.

Sensor for Faster, More Accurate COVID-19 Tests

Sensor for Faster, More Accurate COVID-19 Tests

A COVID-19 sensor developed at Johns Hopkins University could revolutionize virus testing by adding accuracy and speed to a process that frustrated many during the pandemic. In a new study the researchers describe the new sensor, which requires no sample preparation and minimal operator expertise, offering a strong advantage over existing testing methods, especially for population-wide testing.

New Brain-Computer Interface With a Flexible Backing

New Brain-Computer Interface With a Flexible Backing

Engineering researchers have invented an advanced brain-computer interface with a flexible and moldable backing and penetrating microneedles. Adding a flexible backing to this kind of brain-computer interface allows the device to more evenly conform to the brain's complex curved surface and to more uniformly distribute the microneedles that pierce the cortex. The microneedles, which are 10 times thinner than the human hair, protrude from the flexible backing, penetrate the surface of the brain tissue without piercing surface venules, and record signals from nearby nerve cells evenly across a wide area of the cortex.

Measuring Pulse Waves with Hair Thin Printed Patches

Measuring Pulse Waves with Hair Thin Printed Patches

A pulse wave is a wave in which the blood flow - that originates from the heartbeat - is transmitted to the body. It is an important biosignal that indicates cardiovascular health. Analyzing the pulse wave signal can diagnose cardiac conditions including high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and more. However, conventional pulse wave measuring devices are cumbersome as they require wearing the blood-pressure measuring cuff or stiff tong-shaped sensor and can mostly be performed at hospitals.

Smart Devices Require Smarts

Medicine has relied on mechanical devices to help treat patients for decades. These devices have ranged in complexity from stents and shunts to dialysis machines and ventilators. As we settle into this age of data, the pressure to connect, control, instrument and analyze the operation of such devices and their impact on health has grown exponentially. After all, at a time when my watch can share heart rate and oxygen saturation, surely any physician-prescribed monitoring device should be able to provide relevant medical insight too?
