This week on The Pulse, we are giving feeling to prosthetics, detecting AIDS in an hour, improving inhaler technology, and stopping hemorrhaging in trauma patients. This episode features:

Prosthetics’ Feelings - Researchers have developed a new interface that can convey a sense of touch from 20 different spots on a prosthetic hand.

AIDS Detection in an Hour - Nanobiosym has produced a diagnostic test that can detect the presence or absence of a disease’s pathogen in just an hour.

Inhaler Engine - Team Consulting has manufactured an inhaler technology that could improve current therapies and even allow some new and existing drugs to be inhaled rather than being ingested.

Stopping Hemorrhaging - St. Teresa Medical is commercializing a hemostatic technology platform called FASTCLOT to help prevent hemorrhage in trauma patients.
