On this episode of The Pulse, brought to you by MDT TV, we're treating wounds with a self-healing polymer, implanting a cure for sleep apnea, printing objects in 3D for the blind, and monitoring vital signs with a shirt. This episode features:

  • Scientists have created the world's first self-healing polymer that can repair itself without any intervention, offering potential applications in wound care.
  • A small, implantable, nerve stimulator that resembles a pacemaker is being studied for the treatment of central sleep apnea.
  • Yahoo Japan is attempting to make it easier for visually impaired children to see the world around them through three dimensional objects that the kids can feel and experience through touch.
  • AiQ, a company that develops smart clothing featuring embedded sensors, has come out with the BioMan shirt that is able to keep track of your body vitals.
