    KeysightHow are Ceramic Parts used for In-Body Medical Applications?
 
Medical parts used in-body need to meet precise dimensions and technical requirements. Insaco machines complicated ceramic parts for in-body medical use including orthopedic, heart and brain applications. Find out more about what makes technical ceramic parts ideal for these applications in this interview with Scott Mittl of Insaco.

    KeysightThe Advantages of More Portable Digital Pathology Devices
 
It is often considered a product of the future but digital pathology should really already be here. It still struggles to overcome several hurdles - a few of which are the initial outlay, hostile attitudes from managers, a lack of human resources or resistance from professionals. However, most of these problems could be solved with smaller and more portable digital microscopy devices.

 Therapeutic Devices Based on an Electromagnetic (EMG) Field
 
Therapeutic Devices Based on an Electromagnetic (EMG) FieldThere are several therapeutic devices established on the utilization of an electromagnetic field where different intensities of electric current are applied. The spectrum of the electromagnetic rays created by these devices is wide-ranging. The resulting biological impact is also different. This article outlines the most commonly used instruments, procedures, and devices.
 
 
 White noise listening device for monitoring infant breathing
 
White noise listening device for monitoring infant breathingResearchers at the University of Washington have come up with a device which acts as a monitor for infant breathing patterns while playing white noise to soothe them to sleep. The results of their study with the new device would be presented in an article titled, “Contactless Infant Monitoring using White Noise,” at the MobiCom 2019 conference in Los Cabos, Mexico on the 22nd of this month.
 
 
 A stretchable, wireless, wearable health monitor
 
A stretchable, wireless, wearable health monitorResearchers have developed wearable wireless monitors that contain stretchable electronics and would provide long term health data about the adults, babies and children. These sensors are an advantage over the presently used devices because they are free from the risk of skin allergic reactions and injuries that are associated with conventional adhesive sensors containing conductive gel formulations.
 
 
 Low-magnetic field MRI produces clearer images and improves safety for patients with pacemakers
 
Low-magnetic field MRI produces clearer images and improves safety for patients with pacemakersResearchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Siemens have developed a high-performance, low magnetic-field MRI system that produces superior images of the body’s internal structures compared to current MRI systems. The new system may also be safer for patients with pacemakers and defibrillators.
 
 
 Millions of stillbirths could be prevented using affordable and wearable sensor
 
Millions of stillbirths could be prevented using affordable and wearable sensorIn a clever adaptation, a team of researchers developed a fetal monitor using commercial motion sensors to pick up the movement of a pregnant woman’s belly, produced by the heartbeat of the baby or by the baby’s movements in the womb. This early-warning system could potentially prevent about 2.6 million stillbirths around the world.
