Important Innovations Collection: Noninvasive Mind Controlled Robotic Arm

World 1st: Mind Controlled Robotic Arm with No Brain Implant or Surgery Source:  Carnegie Mellon University Noninvasive Brain Computer Interface This is breakthrough innovation from engineers at Carnegie Mellon University.  They've invented an electrode cap that senses the wearer's thoughts.  The Brain Computer Interface system is so sophisticated it controls a robotic arm to continuously track and follow a moving cursor on the computer screen.  For a great news blog, go to Important Innovations Collection: Noninvasive Mind Controlled Robotic Arm : Mind Over Matter with No Surgery Source:  Carnegie Mellon University Electrode Cape A new, noninvasive electrode cap - a brain compu...

Important Innovations Collection: 1st in Medical Robotics

World First in Medical Robotics Robotic Catheter Autonomously Navigates Inside the Body - Noninvasive Heart Valve Repair Bioengineers at Boston Children's Hospital have invented a robotic catheter that has autonomously navigated inside the body. It noninvasively repaired leaking heart valves on animal models.  This is a world first and may usher in brand new possibilities in the practice of medicine.  For a news blog, go to  Important Innovations Collection: 1st in Medical Robotics : Autonomous Robotic Navigation Inside the Body  Source:  Boston Children's Hospital Robotic Catheter Noninvasively Repairs Leaki...

New Molecular Surgery Innovation

Reshaping Tissue with Electricity and No Incisions Source:  University of California Irvine, Molecular Surgery Medical Innovation at the Cutting Edge This is important innovation, medicine and science.  It's new, innovative "molecular surgery" that, if you have to have surgery, you're going to prefer.  It's just at the beginning stage.  But it can reshape torn cartilage without any incision only electricity.  It can work to reshape a nose or ear and even shows promise to fix immobile joints and as a noninvasive alternative to laser eye surgery. Innovation from University of California and Occidental College The innovation is from UCAL Irvine and Occidental College.  Here's how it works.  Tiny needles are inserted into the damaged cartilage and they pass a low dose of electrical current through the tissue, which makes it soft and malleable. A customized 3D printed mold reshapes the tissue. The tissue stiffens and takes on the shape of the mold when t
