Whether in medical technology, environmental protection/analysis, in the laboratory or process engineering, many applications are today unthinkable without the use of mechanically driven diaphragm pumps for gases. Their particular
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.

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 »
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.
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 »
Jerome Canady, Founder of US Medical Innovations, and Mark A. Cleveland, CEO of Swiftwick, discuss their very different, but equally important, products.
The Canady Hybrid Plasma™ Scalpel (“CHPS”), the first smart multifunctional hybrid plasma device in the world, can control plasma for surgery; for killing tumors, for killing cancer. Read more »
Novus Scientific creates a surgical mesh that can provide more stability in breast implants.
The severity of the 2007/09 economic recession and the subsequent slow rural recovery has heightened interest in the concept of economic resilience: the ability of a local economy to bounce back from declines in employment, earnings, and output. One human capital resource that may facilitate this flexibility is the share of local employment in the “creative class.”
Comparing actual to recommended food intakes of children, adults, and lower- and higher-income individuals reveals that Americans under-consume fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and dairy products, while over-consuming added sugars, solid fats, and sodium.
