It is assumed that all animals die as soon as their brains die. However, scientists have recently managed to disprove this fact by restoring brain cell activity in a pig 4 hours after the animal’s death.
3D printing has vast potential for use in medicine. A group of Swiss scientists has recently succeeded in printing a silicon copy of a human heart using a 3D printer. Because this material may be rejected by the body, the experiment was repeated by their Israeli colleagues, using natural tissues.
Representatives from Open Bionics have announced the upcoming release of the Hero Arm prosthetic. Hero Arm will be primarily available to residents of the United Kingdom, France and the United States, where the device will be produced in collaboration with Hanger Clinic.

Latest-generation medical devices are usually connected to the global network, so they can be hacked. Scientists at Ben-Gurion University in Israel have demonstrated the consequences.
The flu is an extremely dangerous illness. Its symptoms usually subside after one or two weeks, but many patients often have various complications that stay with them even after the virus is destroyed.
Developed by an eponymous company, the Sana mask is currently at the clinical trial stage. A permit for mass production is expected to be given for this development as soon as this fall.
The prospects of using microscopic robots for medical purposes have long been discussed, and this discussion is little by little getting supported by feasible projects. One of such projects is the innovation developed by Cornell University scientists.
People with disabilities have a hard time getting around even within the well-developed infrastructure of large cities, to say nothing of going off-road. But this might change in the near future, all thanks to a Polish development: a wheelchair that can take you anywhere.
American scientists from the University of New Hampshire have developed a new type of contact lenses that can cure a disease that was previously considered incurable.
The diagnostic method developed by scientists at Duke University (USA) enables the detection of the disease at an early stage. Their methodology is based on monitoring a patient's retina.
Technological change spans all the spheres of social relations. OnMed self-contained stations, the first of which is scheduled to open in the US later this year, is a vivid example of the introduction of new technologies into our lives.
