Penn State University researchers have discovered a new technique for sorting cells on a chip no bigger than a dime using acoustic waves.
Because medical devices commonly use standard PC’s running mainstream operating systems they are often at risk to security vulnerabilities and require frequent updates of the software. Wireless connections pose a similar threat by exposing medical devices to potential malware and researchers have conducted a study that indicates the US may not be doing an adequate job of tracking these vulnerabilities and risks.
Ohio-based HealthSpot is set to launch its Care4 Station telemedicine kiosk to revolutionize primary care and reinvent the retail clinic experience.
As was covered recently, Qualcomm’s 2net Platform looks poised to make a major impact on medical device connectivity and allow for the creation for new kinds of health applications and businesses. One great example which shows the power of allowing application developers to “outsource” end-to-end connectivity is the Macaw app. It aggregates data from multiple types […]
Calgary Scientific, makers of ResolutionMD, are here at the mHealth Summit and were kind enought to give the imedicalapps team a live demonstration of the app, including some of its marqee features.
AT&T and Calgary Scientific have recently teamed up to offer ResolutionMD, a FDA approved mobile diagnostic viewer as part of AT&T’s broader medical imaging and information management solution.
Ambitious and brash startup Scanadu raises $2 million from a global round of angel investors to build a medical tricorder device straight out of Star Trek with the goal of enabling users to “check their body as often as they check their email.”
Scanadu has raised 2 million dollars to create a device that automatically diagnose common health conditions, called a Medical Tricorder.
NYU-based BioSignal Group has submitted their microEEG system to the FDA for pre-market approval, sets a high standard for ambulatory EEG Bluetooth amplifier design.
Emergency Medical Technologies (EMT) recently published the first in man, prospective, single-blinded, phase I study to evaluate a novel, watch-based pulse detection device in the journal Heart Rhythm. The sensor used in the study is EMT’s Wriskwatch(tm), which has the look and feel of a normal wristwatch, but acts as both a motion sensor and a pulse sensor designed to identify a patient in cardiac arrest, and features built-in fall detection and panic button.
The regulatory status of medical apps, i.e mobile medical software, has been in limbo for some time now while observers have been watching the FDA for clues as to what role it will play. Clearly, some apps do play a role in guiding physicians in making diagnoses or making treatment decisions. Others simply provide information […]
