asumoto Changing behavior related to improper lifestyle habits has attracted attention as a solution to prevent lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, and stroke. To drive health behavior changes, wearable devices are needed, and they must not only provide accurate sensing and visualization functions but also effective intervention functions. In this paper, we propose a health support system, WaistonBelt X, that consists of a belt-type wearable device with sensing and intervention functions and a smartphone application. WaistonBelt X can automatically measure a waistline with a magnetome...

Eating disorders are characterized by clinical disturbances in body image and eating behavior resulting in significant physical and psychological impairment. Disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder are more prevalent in women and can result in serious long-term health consequences such as heart disease, kidney failure, and increased mortality.

Typically, when medical device companies or physicians want to study a specific condition or disease state, they experiment on either cadavers or animals. But finding a cadaver that fits the criteria of one of these pathologies, such as scoliosis or congenital heart disease, can be difficult. And if such cadavers can be found, the cost to procure, maintain, and dispose of them is significant. Animal studies have the same cost-effectiveness issues. And, while animal anatomy can be similar to human anatomy, it is not exactly the same. “But now [customers] can have organ models printed in 3D, on demand,&acir...

Distinct subgroups of cardiac muscle, fibroblast cell and endothelial cell were detected. We generated a cell-cell interaction network using specific expressed ligands and receptors of cells. And we also observed the change of interaction and cell transformation with age.

Louch, Per Steinar Halvorsen, Jacob Bergsland, Ilangko BalasinghamAbstractThere is continuous interest in maximizing the longevity of implantable pacemakers, which are effective in remedying and managing patients with arrhythmic heart disease. This paper accordingly first proposes miniature actuating nanomachines that inter-connect with individual cardiomyocytes and then deeply explores their energy expenditure when performing basic cardiomyocyte stimulation...

Children with repaired congenital heart disease (CHD) have an altered maximal aerobic capacity (VO2max). Determining the causes of their VO2max alteration remains challenging. Cardiac output measure using thoracic impedancemetry during cardiopulmonary exercise tests (CPET) can help understand the determinants of VO2max in children with open-heart repaired CHD.
