Grow by Alessi | Designer Watches | Dezeen Watch Store | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
Inspired by the act of growing, Morgante produced a watch that organically wraps around the wearer's wrist as a complete piece.
petabush's insight:

"The surface of the watch has been designed to replicate the muscle fibres of the wearer’s arm. The watch features linear ridges and grooves that circle around the strap and face, appearing to ‘grow’ around the wrist." need tos ee this close up to see how it shapes around the wrist.

NeuroMetrix Sensus Diabetic Pain Management System

NeuroMetrix Sensus Diabetic Pain Management System | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
NeuroMetrix out of Waltham, MA was cleared by the FDA to bring to the U.S. market its SENSUS transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator that’s intended for use by diabetics to help manage chronic intractable pain. The SENSUS is attached to the patient’s upper calf and uses proprietary algorithms to generate an electric current that disrupts/modulates nerve pain signals from reaching the brain.

The company is expecting to launch the device later in the year.

Mapping The Future Of Design With Neri Oxman

Mapping The Future Of Design With Neri Oxman | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

Neri asks, “What can design do for science and technology?” If you can map load, heat and light, can you map pain? Tackling carpal tunnel syndrome, Neri and her colleague Craig Carter developed a methodology to map the pain profile in one’s hand and wrist. A second skin of hard and soft materials is customized into a protective glove where at each point movement could be constrained, supported and yet remain flexible. Neri has gone on to explore an artistic manifestation of second skin (dubbed “bio-armor“) in a series of objects “Imaginary Beings: Mythologies of the Not Yet” presented this past spring at the Pompidou Centre.

Tattoos have been around nearly as long as the human race itself, and apart from improved tools and safety measures they haven’t changed much. But with futuristic technology comes futuristic body modifications, and the next generation of skin art is on its way. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are developing implantable flexible silicon transistors on dissolving substrates that could, at some point, be used as medical tattoos. The implants are extremely thin electronics on a silk substrate that dissolves over time, leaving only the electronics behind. The LEDs are visible through the skin, so when activated their readout is kind of like an electronic tattoo.

The Age of 'Wearatronics': Advances for remote patient monitoring

The Age of 'Wearatronics': Advances for remote patient monitoring | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
In the beginning there was the triode, a vacuum-tube that heralded the early age of electronics. However, this age was limited because the triode was relatively bulky, required a lot of energy and, since it was made of glass, extremely fragile. Its replacement, the solid state field-effect transistor, was perhaps the greatest technological leap of the 20th century. The transistor reduced the size & power load of electronics while simultaneously improving their durability.We are now entering a new age of electronics, one in which new materials and interconnects have made circuit assemblies flexible (‘Flextronics‘) and, as a result, embeddable. We at Medgadget have been closely following flextronics as well as its subfield of wearable electronics, or “wearatronics,” over the last few years. The fundamental concept is that flexible electronic arrays may be embedded into textiles in order to, for example, measure the wearer’s vital signs or even generate and store power. In this post we would like to provide one timely example and two resources that you may use to learn more about wearatronics and stay ahead of the curve:
