Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new, wearable sensor that uses silver nanowires to monitor electrophysiological signals, such as electrocardiography (EKG) or electromyography (EMG). The new sensor is as accurate as the “wet electrode” sensors used in hospitals, but can be used for long-term monitoring and is more accurate than existing sensors when a patient is moving.
Long-term monitoring of electrophysiological signals can be used to track patient health or assist in medical research, and may also be used in the development of new powered prosthetics that respond to a patient’s muscular signals.
Electrophysiological sensors used in hospitals, such as EKGs...
NanoSphere Health Sciences, LLC, innovative developers of the industry-first, patent-pending NanoSphere™ delivery system, announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark office issued "Patent Pending" status for its new NSAID NanoSphere technology platform.
NanoSphere Health's NSAIDs are the first to encapsulate prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Naproxen, etc.) as a method to treat and prevent inflammatory disorders and global inflammation and pain. The use of the NanoSphere delivery technology eliminates and alleviates many of the severe side effects NSAIDs can have, such as stomach irritation, stomach bleeding and GI bleeding, among others...
