In today’s interconnected world, it’s easier to set a DVR from an airplane seat or remotely watch the kids arrive home than to gather significant data about our health. Traditional office visits, laboratory tests, and hospital-based equipment are still the primary means of acquiring information about a person’s health.
A University of Iowa physiologist has a new technique to measure the stiffness of the aorta, a common risk factor for heart disease. And it can be as simple as measuring the pulse in your finger. The new procedure works by placing an instrument called a transducer on the finger or over the brachial artery...

EarlySense, the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions™, announced today that the company has been granted three United States patents. The first, US Patent number , was granted for the ability of the EarlySense technology to monitor and predict congestive heart failure (CHF) and asthma attacks.
Glucose monitoring systems with an autocorrect feature that can detect red blood cells (hematocrit), vitamin C and other common interferents in burn patients’ blood are better for monitoring care, a pilot study conducted by UC Davis researchers at the School of Medicine and College of Engineering has found.
Burn patients are at risk for high blood glucose levels, or hyperglycemia, due to the body's stress response. Intensive insulin therapy, which is commonly used to keep glucose under tight control, significantly reduces mortality and morbidity. But not all glucose monitoring systems are created equal.
MobileHelp, a leader in innovative M-PERS or Mobile-Personal Emergency Response System technology, announced today it has begun shipment to customers of its new Cellular Base Station.

While the adoption of electronic health records helps healthcare facilities streamline data collection and retention, it also presents challenges when it comes to security. Traditional paper file storage in healthcare facilities is being replaced by computers and portable electronic devices that are often more exposed to threats.
This week on Kickstarter, we are monitoring our brainwaves and moving objects with just our thoughts with the Emotiv Insight, a 5-channel, wireless headset from Tan Le, founder and CEO.
Brain imaging equipment has been around since the 1930s, but we have made very little progress in understanding the human brain, explains Tan Le, Founder and CEO of Emotiv Insight. With almost a decade of experience in the field, she hopes to change this.

Clean drinking water is a diminishing natural resource in developing nations and in many industrialized countries. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a simple and inexpensive test kit that detects phenolic compounds in water.
The Boston Marathon bombing brought international attention back to the devastating effects of terrorism. There were numerous victims with severe injuries that needed immediate attention. A study presents cases from Boston-area hospitals where victims were treated, examining the medical response and imaging technologies used to save lives and limbs.
People are living longer and they desire to live as independently as possible in their senior years. But, independent lifestyles come with risks, so researchers are developing "smart home" technologies like these to enhance and monitor ...
Now engineers at Imperial College in London have developed an EEG device that can be worn inside the ear, like a hearing aid. They say the device will allow scientists to record EEGs for several days at a time; this would allow doctors to monitor patients who have regularly recurring problems like seizures or microsleep.
When people have a brain injury so severe that they can't squeeze a loved one's hand or otherwise respond, there are few good ways to tell if they have any lingering awareness or are in a vegetative state. Now researchers have created a tool to peek inside the brain and measure varying levels of consciousness.
SuperECG provides a 24-hour ECG examination for everyone. The HeartBug device is buttonless and the service functions completely online. The service has been developed by cardiologists and hardware and software designers. Now anyone can conduct a cardiac assessment that previously required a visit to a specialist.
