Getting Inside the Athlete’s Brain

Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher takes neurology to the playing field.

One of the things Kutcher has been teaching for years is concussion as a network injury. When we talk of localizing things in the brain one of the first things we do is try to describe whether it is a focal process like a stroke, a multi-focal process like MS, or is it a diffused process; something that affects the neurons or blood vessels in the brain in a very general way.

Underwater Robot Skims for Port Security

MIT researchers unveiled an oval-shaped submersible robot, a little smaller than a football, with a flattened panel on one side that it can slide along an underwater surface to perform ultrasound scans. Read more »

'Solar Battery' Runs on Light and Air

Ohio State University researchers report that they have succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one hybrid device.Key to the innovation is a mesh solar panel, which allows air to enter the battery, and a special process for transferring electrons between the solar panel and the battery electrode. Inside the device, light and oxygen enable different parts of the chemical reactions that charge the battery. Read more »

Coming Soon - Mahindra Maximizes Engine Cooling System Performance with HyperWorks

An efficient cooling system is of paramount importance in any kind of vehicle, particularly as the engine power increases and the space in the underhood compartment decreases.

Will we harvest energy with our own footsteps?

At the Center for Research in Advanced Materials (CIMAV), scientists "captured" the energy produced by people walking. The team designed a pill-shaped cylinder adapted to a shoe in order to store the mechanical-vibrational energy that the person generates when walking. Similarly, the London-based company Pavegen produces a technology that harvests mechanical energy of walking feet and converts it to electrical energy via a special floor tile. Both ideas perhaps could lead to cities using the alternative, piezoelectric solutions to create power when and where it is required. What do you think? Read more »

Innovation from Orthopedics to Sports Medicine
