A news story published by MobiHealthNews reports on the recent launch of Orthocare Innovations spinoff company modus health, and its plans to create a wearable activity tracker for clinical use.
Constant Therapy reports that it has officially launched its iPad rehabilitation solution, engineered for patients seeking to improve brain function or to be used in conjunction with a clinician as part of therapy.
Researchers have reportedly created “smart bandages,” which feature a range of sensors engineered to detect changes in a wound environment, alert a patient or medical staff by altering the color of the dressing, or sending a message to a smartphone.
To enhance and “gamify rehab,” Visual Touch Therapy offers users games that hinge on range-of-motion exercises, allowing users to begin a therapy program with large gestures and progress to smaller, more precise movements as strength and mobility improve.
A wireless health-monitoring system built to detect the early signs of TBI by continuously monitoring a range of brain and neural functions has reportedly been developed by engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas.
According to a news release on its website, pediatric rehabilitation hospital Children’s Specialized Hospital has begun to use a “telepresence” healthcare solution engineered to allow healthcare providers to interact with patients at any hour of the day without physically being in the hospital.
A soft, wearable device engineered to mimic the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the lower leg, may hold promise in rehabilitation of ankle-foot disorders, researchers say.
This showcase highlights some of the most exciting solutions on the market, and will help clinicians understand the features and benefits that will be most useful to their operations.
Combining familiar principles with new technology opens the doors to innovative treatment ideas and progress
According to North Carolina State University, researchers have developed wearable, multifunctional sensors that may hold promise in a range of applications, including new prosthetics, robotic systems, and flexible touch panels.
