Latest Industry News:

Jan 2018The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved an antipsychotic, aripiprazole, as the first drug to contain a "digital ingestion tracking system" that can tell whether the drug has been taken. The new tracking system works by sending a message from the pill's sensor to a wearable patch. The patch transmits the information to a mobile application so that patients can track the ingestion of the drug on their smart phone. Caregivers and physicians may also access the information through a web-based portal.

Jan 2018A biodegradable pressure sensor that has been developed by engineers at the University of Connecticut can make certain medical procedures much less invasive. The small, flexible device is designed to monitor the forces at work within a patient’s body, including those related to chronic lung disease and brain swelling, before dissolving completely. After the sensor’s work is complete, the electronics can be removed through minimally invasive procedure while the sensor itself dissolves.

Jan2018A new liquid-based strain sensor developed at Sussex University promises to monitor respiratory conditions more accurately and affordably thanks to the use of graphene. The unobtrusive strain sensors are claimed to be the most sensitive liquid-based devices ever developed and could be used to monitor sick babies in remote parts of the world, or keep track of new babies’ heart and breathing rates with automatic updates sent to their parents’ smart phones.

Jan 2018 Scientists at Monash University and RMIT University in Australia have recently developed an ingestible capsule that’s able to measure the different concentrations of gas in your gut. This information can then be wirelessly transmitted via a receiver device to a smartphone, allowing individuals to monitor the effect of their diet in real time. The 26-millimeter-long capsules, about the size of a multivitamin pill, contains a bunch of electronic sensors that can detect levels of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Levels of these gases, along with nitrogen and methane, in the gut have been shown to be useful in understanding if anything is wrong with your digestive system. They also give a fair indication of the state of the gut’s bacteria biome.
