This new wearable electronic patch can be crumpled, stretched and drenched

This new wearable electronic patch can be crumpled, stretched and drenched | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Thinner than a human hair, the patch is suited to unobtrusive health monitoring. It could also give a robot a more delicate sense of touch.

 

Toss a newly developed electronic patch into the air, and it will float softly to the ground like a feather. Crumple it into a ball and it will unfold undamaged.

The patch, detailed in a paper published today in Nature (subscription required), is thinner than a human hair and can be placed directly on the skin. It can be stretched to more than two times its normal size and is nearly unbreakable. It is also made on a sheet of inexpensive plastic. The patch could be worn by a medical patient or an athlete as an unobtrusive way to monitor health. Because it is waterproof, it could even be placed in a wearer’s mouth or used while swimming.

New Telescopic Contact Lens Magnifies Vision Three Times

New Telescopic Contact Lens Magnifies Vision Three Times | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Researchers led by Eric Tremblay from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EDFL) in Switzerland and Joseph Ford from UC San Diego have developed a new Superman-style contact lens that can magnify the wearer’s vision by 2.8 times when worn with a modified pair of 3D glasses.

 

Such contacts may one day empower those suffering from macular degeneration or even augment the eyes of those with perfectly healthy vision.

 

How do they work? The center of the lens allows light directly through for normal vision. Meanwhile, a 1.17 mm thick magnifying ring, located around the lens center and comprised of tiny aluminum mirrors, reflects incoming light from objects into the wearer’s retina, at which point, the image has been magnified almost three times.

 

One very cool thing about this lens is the selective magnification. The researchers used a pair of modified polarized Samsung 3D TV glasses to switch between normal (light through the central lens aperture) and magnified views (where the polarizing filters block the central lens and admit light from the mirrors).

 

This technology may help the approximately two million people in the US suffering from macular degeneration—the most common cause of blindness for individuals aged over 55 years. The macula of the eye, which deals with the visual details, slowly degenerates resulting in vision loss from the center field of vision, and the sufferer cannot recognize faces or perform simple tasks.

 

The current treatments for macular degeneration include invasive surgery or to wear glasses with very thick lenses. Although research continues, development of this new magnifying lens technology has the potential to improve the quality of life for millions of people around the world by using these ‘normal’ looking lenses.

 

Further applications might include military use to increase soldiers’ vision. (The research was originally funded by DARPA.) But there’s no reason to stop there. We could imagine a pair of these lenses being fun or useful for just about anyone. And perhaps telescopic powers are but one attribute of future contact lenses—others may include filters to see outside our normal band of the spectrum, tiny cameras, and augmented reality.

 

That said, in the foreseeable future, we’ll have to be content with just dreams of switchable x-ray contacts with telescoping lenses and onboard computers.

Charting the Future of Capacity Building for mHealth

Charting the Future of Capacity Building for mHealth | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Last month, 130 doctors, nurses, development workers, techies, government officials, and academics from 35 countries joined us on an exciting four-week journey through the latest developments in mHealth.

 

Three observations/trends emerged during the course:

 

Mobile data collection most discussed! Mobile data collection, management and analysis gained significant attention in the course forums. We were thrilled to be joined by Yaw Onokwa, one of the founders of Open Data Kit and Jeremy of CommCare who provided students with live demos of their respective software packages and shared a number of insights and best practices for developing surveys, acquiring and managing users, scaling data projects and more. The always-engaging Alain Labrique (Johns Hopkins University) joined us for a fantastic session on the continuum of care that touched on his exciting work in Bangladesh and the importance of investing in the evidence base.

 

The importance of human centered design (HCD): Human-centered design also featured prominently throughout the four weeks. Isaac Holman (co-founder of Medic Mobile) led participants through an exercise in drawing/mapping a health ecosystem based on HCD principles. Design experts Erica Kochi (UNICEF Innovation) and Robert Fabricant (Frog Design) shared a wealth of insights from their experiences in successfully launching and sustaining mHealth projects in a number of countries. For many of these world-class practitioners, this was the first time they had ever presented in an online course like this.

 

Fewer pilots + design for scale: After the New York Times featured an article last spring entitled The Benefits of Mobile Health on Hold there was certainly a lot of room for debate and critical discussion about “pilotitis”. Patty Mechael noted that one trend she has observed in last year is fewer organizations are starting pilots more are focused on designing for scale from the onset of a project. And finally, Gustav Praekelt shared the amazing work his foundation has undertaken to team up with leading private sector entities in South Africa to achieve scale (1 million+) in fighting HIV and preparing mothers for childbirth.

 

Three highlights from the course:

 

Techies + Healthies: We featured a TEDx Talk by Josh Nesbit titled, “Techies + Healthies”, which prompted an insightful discussion about the need to promote more engagement between practitioners from both fields. We also asked participants to reflect on their own orientation on the healthie – techie spectrum.

 

Zombies, Zombies, Zombies: What would a TechChange course be without a Zombie Apocalypse. This time, participants had to respond to an impending zombie invasion and practice gathering vital health and preparedness data using tools like Magpi, FrontlineSMS, CommCare formhub, OpenDataKit and more.

 

What a Map! We asked participants to describe the health systems in their own countries and then crowdsourced an interactive Google Map of everyone’s responses. I personally learned a tremendous amount about the challenges and opportunities that exist in other countries through this visualization and am excited to do more of these kinds of activities in future courses.
