Sensor developed by Researchers helps detecting when senior citizens are at risk of falling

After A lifetime of working, raising families and contributing to the success of this nation in countless other ways, senior citizens deserve to lead a healthy life. Healthy life is possible when chances of falling could be predicate timely and accurately.

University of Missouri scientists have developed sensor systems that allow health care professionals to remotely monitor senior citizens around the clock, accurately predicting their chances of falling. The motion sensors’ processors can generate data about gait speed and stride lengths.

Unlike many motion sensors, you don’t need to wear anything on your body. You could string devices around the home, and wouldn’t have to change your behavior or remember to charge a device. The sensors enabled the researchers to detect subtle changes in their walking patterns, like increases in shakiness, which may otherwise go unnoticed. Those were then flagged to caretakers via email.

Researchers Develop a 3D Brain-on-a-Chip

Researchers in the Netherlands are currently working on a project, which will allow them to develop a 3D brain-on-a-chip. This will enable them to understand better the way brain cells react to medication. Continue Reading
