Rutgers Students Invent Medical Devices for Disabled Children and Adults

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Two summers ago, biomedical engineering students at Rutgers University–New Brunswick immersed themselves at Matheny in Peapack, New Jersey, a nonprofit organization that is home to scores of children and adults with cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other developmental disabilities. The students’ goal: find ways to improve their independence and quality of life. After talking with staffers and students at Matheny, the Rutgers students designed prototypes that were demonstrated there last spring. The reaction was very positive.

Study to Explore How Cognitive Development Shapes Attitudes About Physical Activity

Iowa State University

Iowa State researchers want to know how the emotional connection we develop with physical activity as children influences behaviors throughout our lifetime. They suspect our prefrontal cortex, which regulates emotions, plays a significant role.

The Fine Print

University of Utah

A team of University of Utah biomedical engineers have developed a method to 3-D-print cells to produce human tissue such as ligaments and tendons to greatly improve a patient’s recovery. A person with a badly damaged ligament, tendon, or ruptured disc could simply have new replacement tissue printed and ultimately implanted in the damaged area.

Researchers Develop 3-D Printed Objects That Can Track and Store How They Are Used

University of Washington

Engineers at the University of Washington have developed 3-D printed devices that can track and store their own use — without using batteries or electronics. Instead, this system uses a method called backscatter, through which a device can share information by reflecting signals that have been transmitted to it with an antenna.

How to Use Bleach Baths to Help Manage Eczema Flares

American Academy of Dermatology

Although hot water and bubble baths may sound relaxing to many, for those with atopic dermatitis, this can have the opposite effect, causing dry, scaly, red patches to develop on the skin. Affecting nearly 28 million Americans, atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is frequently described as the “itch that rashes.” Since the condition makes it harder for the skin to keep out harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs, people with eczema often have sensitive skin prone to inflammation and infections. Although there is no cure for eczema, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology say those with moderate to severe eczema can improve their symptoms and reduce their risk of skin infections using bleach bath therapy.

Scientists Pinpoint Pathway that Impacts Features of Autism

Florida Atlantic University

Scientists have uncovered a brain-signaling pathway that can be pharmacologically manipulated in genetically engineered mice to reverse an autism-related pathway. Using an experimental drug targeting this pathway, the researchers normalized the disrupted physiology and behavior of these mice. Moreover, effects were seen in adult mice, suggesting a possible route to medication development for adults with autism spectrum disorder.

Reversing Paralysis: Stem Cell Therapy Aims to Repair Spinal Cords Afflicted by Rare Disorder

UT Southwestern Medical Center

By injecting patients with stem cells engineered to repair the central nervous system – called progenitor cells – UT Southwestern scientists are working to establish the first treatment that can repair spinal cords inflamed by transverse myelitis.

Easter Island inhabitants collected freshwater from the ocean’s edge in order to survive

Binghamton University, State University of New York

Ancient inhabitants of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) maintained a society of thousands by utilizing coastal groundwater discharge as their main source of “freshwater,” according to new research from a team of archaeologists including faculty at Binghamton University, State University at New York.
