Decades of clinical research studies have verified that mild electrical stimulation of the cranium does alleviate symptoms in a wide range of conditions.
We are in the midst of a demographic phenomenon known as the graying of society. In more affluent countries, the population is aging. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Americans aged 65 and older is projected to more than double by 2060.
We may well know how bad sleep deprivation is for us, but science is just starting to figure out why.
2019 was a revolutionary year in the field of chemistry as the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 to three brilliant chemists: Dr. Frances H. Arnold, Dr. George P. Smith, and Sir Gregory P. Winter.
The FHIR development community has expanded its scope to include the extraction of specific data abstracts from a patient’s chart and large datasets from electronic health record systems of even larger clinical data repositories.
Back in the mid-1960s, rotary-dial telephones were the norm, music cassette tapes were brand new, and microwave ovens hadn’t made it into houses yet. That’s also when newly minted electrical engineer Thomas Furness joined a U.S. Air Force Lab and began developing what would become
Say hello to Molly, Florence, and Ada—they’re just a few of the helpful, smart algorithm-powered chatbots taking their place in health care. Chatbots are computer programs designed to carry on a dialogue with people, assisting them via text messages, applications, or instant messaging. Essentially, instead
Access to health care has long been considered to be a human right. It was formally declared in 1946 when the heads of states wrote the constitution of the World Health Organization (WHO). But more than 70 years after the fact, the global community still
In this article, we will look at how interoperability through Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) could empower patients to become more involved in their own care and in maintaining their health.
A tiny cockroach no bigger than a large paper clip scurries across the floor of my bio-engineering lab at the University of Connecticut, Mansfield, CT, USA. It is a robot-roach hybrid, a hardwired biological insect, a cyborg if you will, and its future high-tech brethren may one day save your life. The use of insects as platforms for small robots has an incredible number of useful applications from search and rescue to national defense.
