For many people, breathing in fresh sea air seems to have a therapeutic effect. It turns out that’s clinically true for people suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF). Scientists observing surfers with CF discovered that the inhaled mist of seawater has a beneficial effect on lung problems associated with the disease. Those findings have been applied [...]
A patch that measures EKG, EEG and EMG and communicates wirelessly with a smart phone could help make home healthcare more comfortable. The device, called Bio-patch, also measures body temperature. When bio-patch is placed on the chest, it measures EKG. Placing the device on the skull measures EEG, and attaching the device to the underarm [...]
