Researchers Might Have Found A Way To ‘Treat All Cancer’
Right now when it comes to treating cancer, researchers and doctors are still very much on their quest to find the cure and the answer to treating it once and for all. Now it looks like a team over at the Cardiff University might have stumbled upon a new discovery that could be groundbreaking.

Australian Man Is First In The World To Undergo A Robotic Kidney Transplant
For hundreds of years, medical operations have been done mostly by humans. This is why it is important that surgeons are competent and aren’t sleepy or drunk or on drugs while they operate on patients. This is because a wrong move, even a small one, could potentially result in a patient losing their life.

Researchers Have Developed The World’s First Living, Self-Healing Robots
When we think of robots, we think of these huge and stiff metallic machines. However, a group of scientists are challenging the way we look at robots as they have developed what is being described as the world’s first living and self-healing robot which they made by using the stem cells of a frog.

Chronolife’s Nexkin Biometric T-Shirt Enables Continuous Real-Time Health MonitoringEditor's Pick
Chronolife was back at CES 2020 with its biometric T-Shirt Nexkin launched in November 2019, a consumer version of Chronolife’s medical solution that is expected to launch as a remote health monitoring product in 2020, with FDA and CE class 2a certifications. In 2021, the company will add to the lineup a patented predictive solution for Chronic Heart Failure with its proprietary HOTS algorithm for mobile phones.

SmartDiagnosis CardiVu Contactless Heart Rate Monitoring
CardiVu is an accurate heart-rate monitoring app that works without having any sensor on your skin and blends transparently into your smartphone routine. We’ve looked at the latest version during CES 2020.

Researchers Use Ultrasound To Selectively Damage Cancer Cells
In case you didn’t know, ultrasound technology has been used to destroy tumors. This is something that has been done for a while and is an alternative to invasive surgery. However, the problem with ultrasound is that it destroys both cancerous and healthy cells at the same time, which obviously is less than ideal.

Lexilight, the First Lamp Designed to Help People with Dyslexia
Today at CES 2020, Lexilife, a start-up founded in 2018 by Jean-Baptiste Fontes, and developed within the Thomas Watt Lighting Pro company, announced Lexilight, a device that aims at bringing relief to 10% of the world’s population that suffers from dyslexia (about 700 million people worldwide).

Google’s DeepMind Detects Breast Cancer More Accurately Than Experts
When it comes to detecting certain diseases, it can be a bit of a mixed bag because humans can make errors. For example when it comes to detecting breast cancer, current methods actually have pretty high rates of false positives. While it is better to be safe than sorry, the downside is that false positives can lead to stress on the patient’s end and potentially unnecessary medical interventions.

FDA Approves An Interoperable, Automated Insulin Pump
Managing diabetes can be tricky and painful, which is why companies like Apple are exploring ways of introducing glucose monitoring through non-invasive ways such as through the Apple Watch. While that has yet to become a reality, diabetics living in the US might want to take note of a new device by Tandem Diabetes Care.

Researchers Find That Reducing Brain Inflammation Could Potentially Reverse Dementia
In our heads, there exists what is known as the blood-brain barrier which is a border that separates circulating blood from the brain. This in turn also prevents molecules or infectious organisms in our blood to leak into our brain, but the problem is that as we age, scientists have discovered that this barrier gets weaker, which causes chemicals to leak into our brain resulting in inflammation that leads to […]

Artificial Neurons Could Solve A Lot Of Chronic Diseases
While our bodies are perfectly capable of healing itself, there are certain things that we just cannot recover from. However, as medical technology is progressing, certain parts of our bodies can soon be replaced with artificial creations. Take for example our eyes, where we are starting to insert lenses into them to improve eyesight.

Future Apple Watch Could Track Parkinson’s Disease
The Apple Watch is capable of many things such as detecting when a user falls, or an irregular heart beat, and it seems that in the future, it could come with sensors where it could also be capable of detecting if a person may be exhibiting symptoms and signs that they could have Parkinson’s disease or some kind of tremor related health issue.

Doctors Have Figured Out A Way To Bring A Dead Heart Back To Life
When it comes to transplanting organs, the timeframe in which an organ remains viable for transplant is pretty small. This window becomes even smaller when it comes to heart transplants as hearts can only be transplanted from a still-living person (usually from donors who have been declared brain dead).

New Zealand Has Launched The World’s First HIV Positive Sperm Bank
Thanks to technology, the field of medicine has advanced greatly, but there are still diseases out there that have a certain stigma attached to them, such as HIV. Due to this stigma, when it comes to choosing a sperm donor, many would typically steer clear of donors who have been tested positive for the disease.
