11/20/2013, People may not agree on a lot of things, which we certainly learned through our various stories covering the launch of the PlayStation 4 and upcoming launch of the Xbox One, but we’re sure there’s one thing we can agree on: we want medical professionals to easily find our veins. When you need to open up your veins to either get blood work done or to have an IV put […]
11/19/2013, Imagine an army full of Iron Mans – now that would definitely strike fear into the heart of enemies, but I suppose this would only happen in the world of science fiction. After all, just one Iron Man suit alone is able to save an entire city at times, apparently, based on the comics that we have read in the past. The US Army too, wants an Iron Man of […]
11/18/2013, The Fukushima nuclear disaster still remains fresh in the minds of many, despite the event happening nearly three years ago. Well, much has been said about it, and I am quite sure that the Japanese government and people are working hand in hand to help alleviate the condition there within the shortest time possible. Yamamoto Corp. a swimwear company in Japan, has decided to do their bit for the country […]
11/15/2013, Pause for a moment and think back on how you spent your days when you were 15 years old. Most of us would still be carefree, but for Jack Andraka, he has achieved something that even adults who have strived for years have failed to do – by successfully developing a pancreatic cancer detection method that is not only fast and fairly accurate, but dirt cheap as well. We are […]
11/15/2013, According to studies, it has been found that epilepsy is the third most common neurological disorder in the US, but the good news to those who suffer from it, or know someone who suffers from it, is that the FDA has recently approved a skull implant that should help reduce the frequency of the seizures. This has been a long time coming, especially since the research began nearly a decade […]
11/14/2013, Now this is a robot that might change the way that doctors are trained to perform a prostate exam in the future – by coming in the form of a plastic posterior that is hooked up to a video screen. In fact, this robot has even been given the name of “Patrick”, and Patrick would remain bent over a desk. Something tells me that first time medical students who lay […]
11/14/2013, When it comes to portable hospital beds, it does seem that they do require a fair amount of handling by the hospital staff whenever patients need to move from room to room. For instance, more often than not, one person needs to push from the back, while there is another person right up in front to steer it. Who knows, there might be another person around who will be keeping […]
11/14/2013, As much as we’d like to ignore them, toilet seats are an extremely part of our every day lives as they help keep us comfortable while we’re sitting on our toilets thinking long and hard what the meaning of life is. But what if you’re someone who can’t be contained by a “normal” toilet seat as you’re just too big to fit onto it? Well – a new adjustable toilet seat […]
11/12/2013, The suits over at Kerecis Limited of Iceland must be pretty happy with themselves, especially when they have just received the nod of approval from the FDA for the fish skin-based MariGen Omega3 tissue-regeneration technology. This FDA approval would mean that such fish skin tissue regeneration technology will be able to be used in the treatment of chronic wounds that are attributed to diabetes or other circulatory problems. MariGen Omega3 […]
11/12/2013, Don’t you just love the advancements that are made in the name of medical science? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be pleased to hear about help being on the way for those who lack the quantity of bone to support dental implants, or those who happen to be missing some bone due to a birth defect, as well as others who have suffered from bone-damaging […]
11/11/2013, We’ve seen humans build an entire leg out of LEGOs, and even more amazing, the woman who built the LEGO leg was able to walk on it. Now, it’s the animal’s turn as a turtle has been spotted with an appendage that is LEGO-inspired. Schildi is a pet turtle that was abandoned, and as a result, lost his leg due to an injury. Due to the surgery, Schildi was left with […]
11/10/2013, I still remember how Professor X had the help of Shi’ar technology to allow him to walk when he brought his X-Men to confront Magneto, but it did take plenty of effort from him to use his vast mental powers to run the thing. Such a fictional setting has become reality this time around, thanks to the introduction of the Indego exoskeleton. The person wearing it as you can see […]
11/08/2013, We think it’s safe to say things with the Healthcare.gov website haven’t been going very well over the past few weeks. Its launch was met with nearly everyone attempting to access the website unable to sign up for the health insurance coverage they wanted to obtain, and things might get even more difficult now that a hacking tool called “Destroy Obamacare” has been discovered.
11/08/2013, We’re sure many of you who don’t play video games on a regular basis probably think it’s a waste of time, especially if you’re an adult. Although according to a recently published study, those hours you see your husband spending on the couch shooting random opponents in the face in Call of Duty: Ghosts is actually enlarging his brain.
