New implantable wireless devices can be used to trigger — and, in theory, block — pain signals in the body and spinal cord before those signals reach the brain, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Biotechnology. Researchers say the implants may one day be used in different parts of the body to fight pain that doesn't respond to... Read more

Implantable Device Controls Insulin Production

2014 12 Aug

A team of bioengineers from ETH Zurich's Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) in Basel, Switzerland, have developed an implantable molecular device that is composed of two modules: a sensor that can measure blood pH constantly, and a gene feedback mechanism that produces the necessary amount of insulin. Both modules have been constructed... Read more
