3D-printed cast concept uses ultrasound to heal broken bones

3D-printed cast concept uses ultrasound to heal broken bones | Interesting Innovation | Scoop.it

Last year, Victoria University of Wellington graduate Jake Evill created the Cortex cast, a concept that sought to potentially replace traditional plaster casts while also offering the added benefit of being lightweight and odor-free. Now, the Osteoid cast, a new concept designed by Deniz Karasahin, takes things a step further by adding an ultrasound device meant to speed up the healing process.

Brain-penetrating nanoparticle attacks deadly tumors

 

(Nanowerk News) Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers, from Yale and Johns Hopkins, have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.

 

“We wanted to make a system that would penetrate into the brain and deliver drugs to a greater volume of tissue,” said Mark Saltzman, a biomedical engineer at Yale and principal investigator of the research. “Drugs have to get to tumor cells in order to work, and they have to be the right drugs.

It's kind of amazing how new this technology is (sort of) and how much it is changing people's lives.

Supercomputing for everyone

 

Great news, the Parallella is now a real computer!! The gigabit ethernet port is working and the full Ubuntu desktop version is up and running! We had some scary moments this week, but in the end everything worked out. Sometimes it’s really worth considering the old advice “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.  Amazing how the most innocent of design changes can cause such major headaches at times…
