The smart insole is a wearable technology to track foot pressure, gait, and other essential metrics. However, iHealthtech scientists and its spin-off company have further developed the technology to prevent slips, trips and falls. Find out more about the innovation from the NUS news!
iHealthtech scientists and its startup company Microtube Technologies have teamed up to invent a haptic glove that brings the next-level immersive virtual reality experience for entertainment, learning and rehabilitation. Find out more from the latest NUSnews!
In this work, the research team led by Assistant Professor Andy Tay developed a dynamic 3D magnetic hydrogel whose matrix stiffness can be wirelessly and reversibly stiffened and softened to study the relationship of matrix stiffness with tumour malignancy and behaviours.
Wearable and flexible electronics are constantly under various strains and stresses due to their high flexibility and stretchability. Therefore, developing a flexible material with robust properties is essential to maintain reliable, repeatable, accurate material performance and functionality. An iHealthtech research team led by Professor Lim Chwee Teck has recently engineered a liquid-solid conductor with amphiphilic properties that can be applied to either rigid or elastic materials for various health and robotic applications. Find out more about the technology from the latest publication.
iHealthtech Director Professor Lim Chwee Teck has been appointed to the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) Administrative Committee (AdCom) as the Asia/Pacific representative to help advance the mission and vision of EMBS.
Yearly medical checkups, especially tests focusing on identifying various types of cancer, can be very costly. iHealthtech Assistant Professor Cheow Lih Feng and his research team stumbled upon a new method to detect cancer with a higher sensitivity than the current testing method. The new method promises will reduce the testing cost significantly, thus enabling more affordable and effective cancer monitoring for patients.
