Pulse Oximeter functionality for a medical device

Alexander Lang writes: The gentlemen for whom I’m developing this hardware for has requested some additional functionality. The additional functionality requested is a Pulse Oximetry measurement.  Pulse Oximetry is the measurement of a person’s pulse along with how much oxygen is present within their blood.  It is a common measurement made by medical practitioners to […]

Swimming robotic micro-scallop

Prof. Peer Fischer and his team at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany have developed a tiny robotic scallops that can swim through blood and eyeball fluid to fix damaged cells: For years now, scientists have been trying to develop microscopic robots that can swim through bodily fluids and repair damaged cells or deliver medicine. Now, a […]

Wearable pupillometer could detect dangerous diabetic condition earlier

Mang Ou-Yang and his team at National Chiao-Tung University have developed a wearable pupillometer. It could detect dangerous diabetic condition earlier: Compared to the existing diagnostic techniques, the pupillometer is a more reliable, effective, portable and inexpensive solution for diagnosing diabetic autonomic neuropathy in its early stages,” said project leader Mang Ou-Yang, of National Chiao-Tung […]

New microchip promises to streamline and simplify diabetes diagnoses

Dr. Brian Feldman and his team at Stanford University have developed a new microchip. It promises to streamline and simplify diabetes diagnoses. Ben Coxworth of Gizmag writes: For people who don’t already know, here’s the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes: the body produces little or no insulin in the case of type 1, and […]

Arduino vitamin/pill reminder

Having to remember to take a vitamin or medication periodically can easily result in missed doses. If it’s a vitamin, probably no big deal. But if its a medical maintenance drug a missed dose can have serious consequences. Ryan Blace from ibuildthings informs us of his latest project, a vitamin/pill reminder. He designed this Arduino […]
