OrbusNeich today announced that the company's Genous Stent is associated with a significantly lower rate of binary restenosis compared to bare metal stents (BMS) in low-risk non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) patients at six months. Data from JACK-EPC, an...
Stretta Procedure for GERD: Successful 10 Year Follow-Up Data Presented at Digestive Disease Week--Sustained Improvement, Long-Term EfficacyMay 19, 2013 8:24 am | by Bio-Medicine.Org | News | Comments
ORLANDO, Fla. , May 19, 2013 /- The non-surgical Stretta® procedure employing low power and low temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy is effective in control of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and eliminates or reduces the need for medication 10 years post-procedure, according to an independent, prospective long-term assessment presented today at the Digestiv...
The MA600MHI series from MicroPower Direct is a family of compact, 6W DC/DC converters fully approved to both EN 60950 and EN 60601. They are specifically designed to meet the stringent isolation, reinforced insulation and low leakage requirements of medical grade equipment.
The STM32F401 is the entry-level microcontroller in STMicroelectronics’ high-performance STM32F4 series featuring the ARM Cortex-M4 32-bit/DSP core. While running at lower frequency than other STM32F4 devices, it balances performance, power consumption and integration and claims the lead in its class.
With its new StarterKit, Nanotec Electronic is providing companies with a complete solution for choosing and commissioning the optimum drive. Various motor settings can easily be tested, and different operating modes such as open loop and closed loop can be compared.
Medical devices are any medical items that are neither a drug nor a biological product. In light of their different mechanisms, actions and regulatory requirements, medical device (MD) trail evaluations are much more complicated than drug trails due to their unique clinical practices....
No. 983 is an electrically-heated 550°F bench oven from Grieve, currently used for curing medical instruments. 3KW are installed in Incoloy sheathed tubular heating elements. Workspace dimensions are 26” wide x 22” deep x 16” high.
This article will walk through the various characteristics of these resistors, including high resistance values, high voltage handling, small size, resiliency, and more, to demonstrate how they might aid in the design of medical devices.
While the advent of electronic health data offers impressive potential when it comes to treatment and diagnosis, it brings with it a host of security issues. The issue is cumbersome and often slow-moving regulatory bodies are scrambling to keep up with the quickly changing landscape of the medical world and they’re leaving a path of semi-regulation in their wake.

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2013--Blue Belt Technologies, Inc., an innovative medical technology company commercializing robotic solutions for orthopedic surgery, announces an implant partnership with DJO Surgical, a DJO Global Company. Blue Belt’s NavioPFS orthopedic surgical system...
The type of sensors that pick up the rhythm of a beating heart in implanted cardiac defibrillators and pacemakers are vulnerable to tampering, according to a new study conducted in controlled laboratory conditions. Implantable defibrillators monitor the heart for irregular beating and, when necessary, administer an electric shock to bring it back into normal rhythm.
Injectable nanoparticles developed at MIT may someday eliminate the need for patients with Type 1 diabetes to constantly monitor their blood-sugar levels and inject themselves with insulin. The nanoparticles were designed to sense glucose levels in the body and respond by secreting the appropriate amount of insulin, thereby replacing the function of pancreatic islet cells, which are destroyed in patients with Type 1 diabetes.
A new tool being developed by UT Arlington assistant professor of physics could help scientists map and track the interactions between neurons inside different areas of the brain. The journal Optics Letters recently published a paper by Samarendra Mohanty on the development of a fiber-optic, two-photon, optogenetic stimulator and its use on human cells in a laboratory.
Levels of physical inactivity and obesity are very high in children, with fewer than 50% of primary school-aged boys and fewer than 28% of girls meeting the minimum levels of physical activity required to maintain health. Exergaming, using active console video games that track player movement to control the game (e.g., Xbox-Kinect, Wii), has become popular, and may provide an alternative form of exercise to counteract sedentary behaviors.
