Everyone knows not to use Comic Sans, but it's not the only played out, overused font all over the web. This graphic offers some great alternatives for some of the web's most popular fonts and typefaces so you can give your website, document, or presentation a fresh look.
Yesterday, the 20,000 customers who use a Lansing Michigan web hosting company called Liquid Web had some big internet problems. The reason: the internet grew too big for the memory chips in the company’s Cisco routers. Think of it as the internet’s latest growing pain. It’s a problem that networking geeks have seen coming for…
The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has announced a new three year project known as ‘WEB-RADR’ to develop a mobile app for healthcare professionals and the public to report suspected adverse drug reactions (or ADRs)...
Makers of EEG tracking headband devices have pitched the devices with a number of different use cases: as a biofeedback device to help the user manage stress, as a controller for gadgets, or as a quantified self device for assessing sleep. Now Philips Healthcare and Accenture have teamed up to show off the possibility of using one such device, the Emotiv Insight Brainware, to help patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to manage both their care and their life.
Patients with ALS, which is also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, have gradually diminished muscle control, and can eventually become completely paralyzed without losing any other brain function. Philips and Accenture have developed a proof of concept app that would allow such a patient, equipped with an Emotiv sensor, to control Philips devices like the Philips Lifeline Emergency Alert system using only their minds.
Digital Health has big buzz this year. There has been good buzz before, but now there is solid reason to think that digital health will have impact. U.S. healthcare faces three big problems: high prices, poor care coordination, and an onslaught of chronic disease. Digital health can address all three problems.
The game helps stroke survivors overcome their motor weakness.
Washington: Scientists have developed a therapeutic at-home 3D gaming programme to help stroke patients overcome motor weakness, which affects 80 per cent of survivors.
Hemiparesis is defined as weakness or the inability to move one side of the body, and can be debilitating as it impacts everyday functions such as eating, dressing or grabbing objects, said researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
Constraint-induced movement therapy (CI therapy) is an intense treatment recommended for stroke survivors, and improves motor function, as well as the use of impaired upper extremities.
However, less than 1 per cent of those affected by hemiparesis receives the beneficial therapy. "Lack of access, transportation and cost are contributing barriers to receiving CI therapy. To address this disparity, our team developed a 3D gaming system to deliver CI therapy to patients in their homes," said Lynne Gauthier, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation in Ohio State's College of Medicine.
Gauthier, also principal investigator of the study and a neuroscientist, is collaborating with a multi-disciplinary team comprised of clinicians, computer scientists, an electrical engineer and a biomechanist to design an innovative video game incorporating effective ingredients CI therapy.
