Invention offers new option for monitoring heart health

An invention may turn one of the most widely used materials for biomedical applications into wearable devices to help monitor heart health.

A team at Purdue University has developed self-powered wearable triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-based contact layers for monitoring cardiovascular health. TENGs help conserve mechanical energy and turn it into power.

Wachs and Rojas-Munoz Demo VR for in-Field Medical Coaching

War zones can be too far from operating rooms, preventing soldiers from receiving the surgery they need fast enough.

A Purdue University-led study is the first to show medics successfully performing surgery in life-like simulations of these war zones by receiving guidance from surgeons through an augmented reality headset.

Parsing tweets to strengthen community disaster resilience

Extreme weather and climate events cause significant loss of life and property, as well as substantial social and economic loss. Compounding the problem, population growth in vulnerable areas, resource constraints and climate extremes make it difficult to rapidly recover interrupted services — especially in the context of climate change, as we face a future in which disasters will become more severe or more frequent. And the COVID-19 pandemic has added new needs.

Connecting older adults with smart tech by design

Intelligent technologies have begun to affect nearly every corner of our lives. At the same time, people 65 years and older have become the fastest-growing age group worldwide. While there are many benefits of a future enabled by smart tools, older adults have typically been left out of the product design conversation, which has not taken into account their capabilities, limitations, expectations, and usability issues. That exclusion is compromising their potential to use these advances to extend their capabilities, improve safety, reduce workload, and enhance convenience.
