Artificial intelligence developed by scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, has learned to translate human lip movements into speech. What is surprising, is that it works, even if a person does not move his lips, but only thinks about it.
Highly allergic people know all too well that there are moments when an epinephrine injection is the only remedy against a dangerous attack. But it is impossible to permanently carry around a drug-filled syringe, so allergic people’s health is constantly under threat.
There has been talk about the potential of 3D printing in medicine for some time now. At present, it’s not yet possible to print a large, healthy organ, because it takes too much time, killing some cells. A new technology can prevent this.
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.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota (USA) have developed a See-Shell skull implant. The device is completely transparent: it will help scientists to monitor human brain in action and reveal the causes of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
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.
