Medgadget ’s Best Medical Technologies of 2017

We reported a surge in the use of augmented reality in healthcare at the end of 2016, with the trend continuing in 2017. Notably, Microsoft’s HoloLens was successfully used for spinal surgery applications by a surgical navigation company named ...

Background and Purpose: A growing population of older adults will require health care professionals to become increasingly knowledgeable in geriatric care. Patient ratings, functional measures, and emphasis on health and wellness should be part of geriatric physical therapy practice. The purpose of the current study was to examine relationships between self-rated health (SRH) and movement-related variables in older adults using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) as a research framework. Associations between body mass index (BMI), gait, and balance confidence were also explored. ...

Conclusions: The TMST has been widely used since first introduced, albeit not always as originally described. There is considerable evidence for the validity of the test, but its reliability and responsiveness are not yet firmly established.

Conclusions: Ambulatory PACE participants have average levels of physical function that are dangerously close to thresholds thought to indicate vulnerability for further disability development, hospitalization, and nursing home admission. Both dementia and comorbidity burden are associated with declines in physical function, and the interaction between these risk factors is a telling indicator to functional decline in higher-level ambulatory tasks. PACE program clinicians can use this information to better identify participants at risk for limited physical function. Further research should investigate consequences of fun...

In this study, to estimate the states that are not directly available from the Bergman minimal model a high-order sliding mode observer is proposed. Then fractional calculus is combined with sliding mode control (SMC) for blood glucose regulation to create more robustness performance and make more degree of freedom and flexibility for the proposed method. Then an adaptive fractional-order SMC is proposed. The adaptive SMC protect controller against disturbance and uncertainties while the fractional calculus provides robust performance. Numerical simulation verifies that the proposed controllers have better performance in t...

Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: PolymerAuthor(s): Nelaka Dilshan Govinna, Thomas Keller, Christoph Schick, Peggy CebeAbstractWe have successfully electrospun un-sulfonated fibers of poly (ether ether ketone), PEEK, from the molten state at 350 °C. Unlike solution electrospinning of PEEK, which produces sulfonated fibers with reduced thermal stability, melt electrospinning produces chemically unaltered PEEK fibers. These fibers are smooth, defect-free, and round in cross-section. Most fiber diameters range from 1.5 μm to 8.5 μm. A large interstitial fiber with diameter reaching up to ...

Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Journal of Organometallic ChemistryAuthor(s): Karu Ramesh, Gedu SatyanarayanaAbstractA copper free [Pd]-catalyzed domino intramolecular Heck and intermolecular decarboxylative Sonogashira couplings, for the synthesis of alkyne bearing heterocyclic compounds with a quaternary carbon atom, is described. Notably, this dual bond forming strategy is successful in water solvent, under microwave irradiation. This one-pot operation enabled the formation of a variety of dihydrobenzofurans, indolines and oxindoles, in very good to near quantitative yields. Notably, unlike earli...

Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Bahareh Moazzenchi, Majid MontazerAbstractMost textile materials are electrically insulating. The metallization of a textile can greatly increase their electrical conductivity for application in wearable electronic devices and smart textiles. The electrically conductive fabric can successfully turn them to the electromagnetic shielding materials. Up to now, different methods have been reported for preparing conductive textiles mostly used costly treatment in special equipment produced rough and...
