7 medtech stories we missed this week: Sept. 8, 2017

[Image from unsplash.com]From BrainScope’s pediatric traumatic brain injury assessment device to EOS Imaging releasing new surgery planning software, here are seven medtech stories we missed this week but thought were still worth a mention. 1. BrainScope to develop pediatric traumatic brain injury assessment device BrainScope announced in a Sept. 7 press release that it will immediately start creating a pediatric capability for its BrainScope One medical neurotechnology. The technology is an FDA-cleared handheld medical device that is designed to assess the full spectrum of traumatic brain injury. The company says that the pediatric version of its BrainScope One will be similar to the one that is currently available. The current device is easy-to-use and rapid and helps clinicians assess whether a patient has a structural brain injury that can be visible on a CT scan or if a patient has function brain impairment like a concussion. 2. BoneSupport inks French distribution deal BoneSupport announced that it has signed a distribution deal with Novomedics, according to a Sept. 7 press release. The distribution deal intends to help BoneSupport gain access to the French market with its Cerament product line of bone void filler, Cerement G and Cerament V. The commercialization agreement allows for BoneSupport’s products to be sold in 8 key European markets while also directly marketing its products in five European countries in the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, Sweden ...

The open access study noted here is one of many to show that greater levels of physical activity correlate well with a reduced risk of age-related disease. It isn't possibly to reliably live to extreme old age on the back of a good exercise program, but that physical activity does reliably improve the odds of experiencing better rather than worse health in later life. Even small benefits can be worth chasing when they cost little and are reliably obtained, so long as that pursuit doesn't distract from far more important initiatives. Exercise is beneficial, but it is no substitute for the rejuvenation therapies presently un...
