Snakes and snake-like robots show how sidewinders conquer sandy slopes (10/17/2014)

Snakes and snake-like robots show how sidewinders conquer sandy slopesThe amazing ability of sidewinder snakes to quickly climb sandy slopes was once something biologists only vaguely understood and roboticists only dreamed of replicating. By studying the snakes in a unique bed of inclined sand and using a snake-like robot to test ideas spawned by observing the real animals, both biologists and roboticists have now gained long-sought insights. ...> Full Article


Researchers to build wearable interface to make prosthetics more comfortable (10/16/2014)

Researchers to build wearable interface to make prosthetics more comfortableUT Arlington researchers have been awarded a $744,300 grant from the Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Orthapaedic Research Program to create an adaptive interface that fits between a prosthetic and a patient's limb so that the fit and comfort of the prosthetic are improved. ...> Full Article


Mind-controlled prosthetic arms that work in daily life are now a reality (10/15/2014)

For the first time, robotic prostheses controlled via implanted neuromuscular interfaces have become a clinical reality. A novel osseointegrated (bone-anchored) implant system gives patients new opportunities in their daily life and professional activities. ...> Full Article


Amputees discern familiar sensations across prosthetic hand (10/14/2014)

Patients connected to a new prosthetic system said they 'felt' their hands for the first time since they lost them in accidents. In the ensuing months, they began feeling sensations that were familiar and were able to control their prosthetic hands with more -- well -- dexterity. ...> Full Article


Study: New device can slow, reverse heart failure (10/13/2014)

Study: New device can slow, reverse heart failureThe C-Pulse device was tested for the first time in the US and was able to slow or reverse the symptoms of heart failure. It is a cuff that's wrapped around the outside of the aorta and synced with a patient's heartbeat to help push blood out of the heart more efficiently. Doctors at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center call the experimental device a potential breakthrough. ...> Full Article


New absorber will lead to better biosensors (10/12/2014)

Northwestern University's Koray Aydin designed a new nanostructure that absorbs ultranarrow bands of light spectrum and can be used in a number of applications, including the creation of more sensitive biosensors. ...> Full Article


Robot researcher combines nature to nurture 'superhuman' navigation (10/11/2014)

2.5 million to recognize and reduce cyber-attack threats to critical infrastructure (10/10/2014)

New research co-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council will focus on the cyber-security of the UK's vital industrial control systems which run, for example, manufacturing plants, power stations, the electricity grid, and the rail network. The research will help understand and mitigate threats from hackers or malware infiltrating the systems behind our critical national infrastructure. ...> Full Article


Study finds information lacking from FDA on implanted medical devices (10/9/2014)

Information is lacking on most implanted medical devices cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration despite a legal requirement that companies submit scientific evidence about the devices' substantial equivalence to other devices already on the market. ...> Full Article


Blackout? Robots to the rescue (10/8/2014)

Blackout? Robots to the rescueDisasters like earthquakes and hurricanes almost always lead to power outages. Now a team of Michigan Tech engineers has developed a tabletop model of a robot team that can bring power to places that need it the most -- like cell towers. ...> Full Article


'Skin-like' device monitors cardiovascular and skin health (10/7/2014)

A new wearable medical device can quickly alert a person if they are having cardiovascular trouble or if it's simply time to put on some skin moisturizer, reports a Northwestern University and University of Illinois study. The small device can be placed directly on the skin and worn 24/7 for around-the-clock health monitoring. The technology uses thousands of tiny liquid crystals on a flexible substrate to sense heat. When the device turns color, the wearer knows something is awry. ...> Full Article


Scripps Research Institute scientists awarded $7.9M to develop artificial immune system (10/6/2014)

Scripps Research Institute scientists awarded $7.9M to develop artificial immune systemScientists from both campuses of The Scripps Research Institute have been awarded a total of $7.9 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of the US Department of Defense. The two teams will build what is, in essence, an artificial immune system. ...> Full Article


Drug discovery researchers receive $5.8 million federal grant to build 3-D liver model (10/5/2014)

Drug discovery researchers receive $5.8 million federal grant to build 3-D liver modelResearchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have been selected by the National Institutes of Health to develop a microfluidic, 3-D human liver model for drug efficacy and toxicity testing as part of the organization's Tissue Chip for Drug Screening program. ...> Full Article


Team developing 'tissue chip' to screen neurological toxins (10/4/2014)

Team developing 'tissue chip' to screen neurological toxinsA multidisciplinary team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Morgridge Institute for Research is creating a faster, more affordable way to screen for neural toxins, helping flag chemicals that may harm human development. ...> Full Article


Artificial intelligence that imitates children's learning (10/3/2014)

Artificial intelligence that imitates children's learningThe computer programs used in the field of artificial intelligence are highly specialized. They can for example fly airplanes, play chess or assemble cars in controlled industrial environments. However, a research team from Gothenburg, Sweden, has now been able to create an artificial intelligence program that can learn how to solve problems in many different areas. The program is designed to imitate certain aspects of children's cognitive development. ...> Full Article
