Kindbody isn’t solely selling a dream of belonging, however — there is a large focus on the consumerism of patient care.
It was way back in 2017 that the company that became Ultraleap (Ultrahaptics) demonstrated at TechCrunch Disrupt a technology that pioneered ultrasound to replicate the sense of touch. The impressive
Israel-based AI healthtech company, DiA Imaging Analysis, which is using deep learning and machine learning to automate analysis of ultrasound scans, has closed a $14 million Series B round of funding
Exo, pronounced “echo,” is commercializing its handheld ultrasound device and point-of-care workflow platform, Exo Works.
This column aims to collect some of the most relevant recent discoveries and papers — particularly in but not limited to artificial intelligence — and explain why they matter.
Dozens of medical imaging devices built by General Electric are secured with hardcoded default passwords that can’t be easily changed, but could be exploited to access sensitive patient scans, a
In the time of COVID-19, much of what transpires from the science world to the general public relates to the virus, and understandably so. But other domains, even within medical research, are still ac
Bars lose 20% of their alcohol to overpours and “free” drinks for friends. That amounts to $50 billion per year in booze that mysteriously disappears, making life tough for every pub and r
Down in Christchurch, New Zealand a team of roboticists at Invert Robotics has commercialized an inspection robot that uses tiny suction cups on a series of treads and a specialty chemical to create a
RRE Ventures has backed the New York-based fertility startup.
Visual assessment is critical to healthcare -- whether that is a doctor peering down your throat as you say “ahhh” or an MRI of your brain.
Fitness trackers and heart-rate monitors are all well and good, but if you want to track activity inside the body, the solutions aren’t nearly as convenient. Iota Biosciences wants to change tha
The home of the future, we are assured, will be swarming with tiny sensors: security cameras, carbon monoxide detectors, speakers and everything else. Few need to be running all the time — but how d
Ultrahaptics lets you touch what you see in virtual and augmented reality, or even give a 2D poster 3D feeling. It uses small speaker-like ultrasound wave emitters to give the sensation of pressure an
Security researchers in China have invented a clever way of activating voice recognition systems without speaking a word. By using high frequencies inaudible to humans but which register on electronic
Of all the potential use-cases for VR, Samuli Cantell has arguably come up with the most unusual after persuading his pregnant girlfriend to undergo 4D ultrasound scanning of their unborn child in ord
LCDs are old hat, my friend. What you need is dozens of tiny spheres levitated and spun using ultrasonics. That's what researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Bristol have cooked up, and it's ex
What if wireless power at a distance actually worked? It does. uBeam invented a way to wirelessly send energy up to 15 feet away with ultrasound. What if you could slap a wireless charging case on you
When you give a mouse a VR headset he’s going to ask for some haptics to go with it. To that end, researchers at the University of Bristol have created a system for projecting invisible “s
Thync is a startup looking to give consumers another avenue to change their mental state, one which doesn't involve significantly altering your daily habits or metabolizing substances which may or may
