A new, smart pacemaker is integrated into a coordinated network of four soft, flexible, wireless, wearable sensors and control units placed around the upper body.
A new injectable therapy harnesses “dancing molecules” to reverse paralysis and repair tissue after severe spinal cord injuries, allowing animal subjects to regain the ability to walk.
Touch-sensitive neurons responded to many types of touch and to varying degrees – in a much messier and jumbled manner than previous predicted, according to a recent study.
In a new study, Northwestern University and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab researchers have discovered that, in an attempt to adapt to this impairment, muscles actually lose sarcomeres — their smallest, most basic building blocks.
Scientists have developed the first-ever transient pacemaker — a wireless, battery-free, fully implantable pacing device that disappears after it’s no longer needed.
A new wearable device developed at Northwestern measures mothers’ and babies’ vital signs and data that cannot be collected with current technology.
Developed by Northwestern scientists, a novel skin-mounted sticker that absorbs sweat and then changes color can provide an accurate, easy-to-read diagnosis of cystic fibrosis within minutes.
A new immunotherapy developed by investigators at Northwestern University dramatically extends the survival time of mice with triple negative breast cancer, one of the most aggressive and difficult-to-treat forms of breast cancer.
Investigators at Northwestern University and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago have developed a novel wearable device and are creating a set of data algorithms specifically tailored to catch early signs and symptoms associated with COVID-19.
