Bone Implants

Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films researchers have developed a novel bone implants. The implant is designed to fit precisely, and have variable dimensions and improved stability. A special type of polymer is a key ingredient for creating the bone implants. The uses of a plasma jet for applying a layer of cell-growth promoters to the bone implants. Individual layers coated with a cold plasma are further treated

Bandage

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have designed a novel type of electrically simulating dressing. The wound dressing is intended to accelerate the process of healing dramatically. The dressing additionally utilizes the electrical pulses generated by the patient’s own body that would boost tissue growth. At the same time, this bandage is highly cost-efficient. Xudong Wang, a scientist at UW-Madison, expresses the research group’s surprise at the speed of wound

Objects Invisible

Making objects invisible has always existed as a fantasy-based scenario. However, a recent research performed by UEx has thrown light onto the possibility of making certain materials by utilizing their electromagnetic properties. Key Insights Into the UEx Research Work With invisibility gaining a lot of research interest, the work undertaken by UEx promises is a key addition in this obscure domain. This research was published in Scientific Reports by the

Breast Cancer

A research team from University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center has successfully made use of a computer to accurately analyze and classify a breast cancer tumor from images using machine learning techniques. More Insights Into the Breast Cancer Identification Study The team used technologies that are similar to the ones used in smartphones and other smart devices that enable speech and facial recognition features. The tumor was classified

New Discovery Suggests That Spider Web Strands Are Nanofiber Cables

A deep secret of spider webs has now been unveiled, and it is certain now that their web strands actually nanofibers that together comprise flat ribbon-like cables. More Insights into the Spider Web Study Atomic force microscopy was used by Hannes Schniepp and Qijue Wang to determine that the web strands of the brown recluse spider showcase cable-like properties. One single strand of spider silk, i.e. a web strand of
