A study report published in Nature's Digital Medicine partner journal shows that the wearable monitor Fitbit Charge HR could assess the health condition of cancer patients and predict their adverse events.
San Jose-based Immersion announced in a statement that it has settled its dispute with Fitbit more or less a year after filing a suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. However, the two companies have not disclosed their terms of settlement and license agreement.
SMART Brain Aging, Inc. announced its one-on-one patient intervention program for aging brain health, Brain U Online, now available to adults above age 50 via online subscription and iOS app, Brain U Lite. Five years of clinical trials were carried out with more than 3,000 participants at Harvard Medical School/Boston University School of Medicine to develop this new program
Onitor Track is an advanced biometric, data-driven program which aids in weight loss. Onitor Track combines a personalized weight loss and nutrition program with a dual-positioned wearable via an app.
Using nanotechnology, the research team developed tiny platinum nanomotors to target Zika and microbeads to bind the virus. When they are added to a sample containing Zika, a 3D complex is formed which moves in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. This unique motion signal can be perceived using a smartphone by attaching it to a cost-effective optical device. The 3D Zika complex moves rapidly compared to the slower movement of other non-target viruses.
NHS Digital and NHS England together have devised a free NHS app to book GP appointments in a swifter and user-friendly way. This novel NHS app will be launched in December 2018, allowing patients to access their health records in a safe and secure manner.
This app uses a smartphone camera, computer vision algorithms and machine learning tools to assess bilirubin levels in the white part of the eye named sclera since jaundice is considered as one of the earliest symptoms of pancreatic cancer. The eyes and the skin become yellow colored due to the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood caused by jaundice.
This Cardiogram work was based on Framingham Heart Study 2015, where the resting and variable heart rate significantly predicted hypertension and diabetes. This prototype helped the cardiogram research team to use the Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor for accurate diabetes predictions.
Scientists from the University of Texas have developed a way to sense dangerous chemicals, a basic model consisting of a smartphone and a box made from Lego bricks, which could help scientists to identify deadly and difficult-to-detect nerve agents such as sarin and VX. The new approach combines a chemical sensor with photography to notice and recognize different nerve agents.
A research team from the University of California, Los Angeles, United States has revealed that deep learning (a form of AI) can distinctively increase microscopic resolutions in photos taken via smartphones.
