Non- Reusable Syringe- Biomedical innovation

In a major breakthrough, a doctor in Kerala has developed a cheap, effective and eco-friendly medical syringe that can never be reused.

“The Peanut Safe Syringe becomes absolutely redundant after its first use. Neither the syringe nor the needle can ever be reused. Scavengers will never be able to collect, repack and sell it in the market,” said Dr Baby Manoj, a radiologist from Kozhikode, who invented the syringe.

The syringe can be used for injection as well as blood aspiration in a single sitting. In other syringe models, separate devices are needed for each procedure.

5 ways in which Technologies Hacked our Body

Science fiction taught us that when science starts modifying the human body, it’s going to involve robot parts and genetic modification gone terrifyingly wrong. But the reality is that the body modifications that are right around the corner are way less frightening and quite a bit more useful. It won’t be too many more years before a trip to the doctor can …

Suspected brain injuries can be difficult to diagnose, and expensive CT scanners are the best way to look for edemas and hematomas. But CT scanners are large, expensive, ionizing, and require specialists to operate.

Brain Impant can restore memories

article 2321081 19AC1584000005DC 540 634x539 e1368470975488 Brain implants may restore human memory in the near future

Hippocampus, the part of the brain with a major role in forming long-term memories

A memory device may be implanted in a small number of human volunteers within two years and the device might become available to anyone within five to ten years. A maverick neuroscientist, Theodore Berger, believes he has deciphered the code by which the brain forms long-term memories.

Theodore Berger, a biomedical engineer and neuroscientist at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, envisions a day in the not too distant future when a patient with severe memory loss can get help from an electronic implant.
