Medica 2018: Mobile motion feedback to help patients reduce relieving postures when walking

Patients who have received a new hip joint must first learn to walk “normally” again after the operation. A mobile gait analysis and feedback system developed by a Kaiserslautern research team in cooperation with physicians and biomechanics shall help to achieve this goal. Only little technology is necessary: The movement sequences are measured via small sensors on the feet, legs, and pelvis. A software evaluates the gait and gives the user feedback so that he can improve his movement. At the Medica medical technology trade fair in Düsseldorf from 12 to 15 November, the researchers will present their project at the research stand (hall 7a, stand B06) of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Dr Gabriele Bleser and her team from the junior research group wearHEALTH at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) are working on a mobile gait...

Medica 2018: Control with your feet - computer game to help prevent thrombosis

A clot in a blood vessel can block the artery. This is what doctors call thrombosis. To prevent thrombosis, exercises for legs and feet help. Often, however, those affected lack motivation. The computer game “jumpBALL”, developed by Kaiserslautern researchers together with medical doctors, provides helpful support. What is special: It's controlled by your feet. The researchers have developed it to be used with smartphones and tablets. The game can also help after a stroke or hip or knee surgery. At the Medica medical technology trade fair in Düsseldorf from 12 to 15 November, researchers will present the game at the research stand of Rhineland-Palatinate (hall 7a, stand B06).

Medica 2018: Diagnostic software detects arteriosclerosis at an early stage

Arteriosclerosis is one of the widespread diseases. If the blood is no longer pumped properly through the veins, a heart attack or stroke may be the consequence. In most cases, the disease is only diagnosed at an advanced stage. Computer scientists from Kaiserslautern are working on software that will enable doctors to detect calcification early on and to plan surgeries more effectively. For this purpose, they use image data from computer tomographies (CT). At the Medica medical technology trade fair from 12th to 15th November in Düsseldorf, they will present the technology at the research stand (Hall 7a, Stand B06) in Rhineland Palatinate.

Too little exercise, unhealthy food, smoking - these factors promote arteriosclerosis. In industrialized countries, the disease is responsible for half of all...

Medica 2018: Relax playfully with the anti-stress app of TU Kaiserslautern

Whether at work or at leisure - more and more people are feeling stressed. This makes it all the more important to learn to consciously relax in order to get stress under control. The app "Stress-Mentor", which was developed by a team of researchers from Kaiserslautern, helps to solve this problem: Users can playfully incorporate various methods of relaxation such as meditation into their daily routine. The app was further developed into a "pain mentor" for pain patients. At the Medica medical technology trade fair in Düsseldorf from 12 to 15 November, the researchers will present their project at the research stand (hall 7a, stand B06) of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Sleep disorders, exhaustion, back pain - all of these symptoms can be signs of stress. In the long term, this is harmful to health. Although there are many...

Fraunhofer FIT at MEDICA and COMPAMED: Electrowetting and Telemedicine

At MEDICA Fraunhofer FIT presents the teliFIT platform for telemedicine and telecoaching, a modular system that can be tailored to a wide range of application requirements and guarantees a very high level of data security. At COMPAMED we present our EWOD-BioPro system that combines electrowetting and confocal microscopy and thus makes it possible to observe the process of biochemical reactions at the single-molecule level.

An important aspect of pharmacology is to understand how active drug ingredients cross-react with endogenous molecules. But until now, such reactions could...

App-App-Hooray! - Innovative Kits for AR Applications

The Fraunhofer FEP has been successfully developing OLED microdisplays based on OLED-on-silicon technology for years. Several generations of different designs have already been created. At the same time, the necessary electronics and system environment for future augmented reality (AR) applications are being developed at full speed. The developers will be debuting an innovative and powerful set of tools for independent development of wearables using OLED microdisplays at the Fraunhofer Joint Booth (no. 426, Hall C5) during electronica 2018, November 13-16, 2018 in Munich, Germany.

The Fraunhofer FEP presented the first ultra-low-power OLED microdisplays two years ago at electronica 2016. These microdisplays score thanks to their...

Robot-assisted sensor system for quality assurance of press-hardened components

In many industrial sectors, material defects in the final product can lead to premature failure and impair their safe use. Intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role in quality assurance: without damaging the material itself or changing the surface, components or parts can be inspected quickly and cost-effectively during the production process. From 23 to 26 October 2018, experts from Fraunhofer IZFP will present a robot-assisted sensor system providing quality monitoring as integral element of production processes at EuroBLECH in Hanover (hall 11, booth A25).

When time-consuming destructive testing methods are used, the damage or destruction of the products results in enormous costs of the quality inspection....
