Advances in healthcare are strongly driven by information technology and engineering. We report on the development of next-gen diagnostic and imaging tools and other smart technologies that transform the delivery of care. We also cover the progress of digitalization and the creating of cutting-edge IT solutions – from using big data to predict therapy responses to using blockchain to to make sharing of medical data secure.

Nerve-on-a-chip improves neuroprosthetics

Scientists have developed a miniaturized electronic platform for the stimulation and recording of peripheral nerve fibers-on-a-chip. By modulating and rapidly recording nerve activity with a high signal-to-noise ratio, the platform paves the way to using chips to improve neuroprosthetic designs. ... Continue reading
