Smart Textiles, Wearables, Internet of Things

Image
These smart textile materials are functional textile materials that can sense and react to environmental conditions. They have applications in various fields such as medical science , automotive, aeronautics and engineering, They play a very major role in science and technology because of their commercial viability. All these innovations on smart textiles play a major role in textile industry in its transformation into a competitive knowledge driven industry. Moreover, combining smart wearables with internet of things has a profound impact on research, development and applications of wearable technology with increased challenges and opportunities.

Frankfurt- City of Great Diversity

Image
Frankfurt is the largest city in Hesse and one of the most expensive cities in Germany. Frankfurt attracts people almost from all over the world. The reason behind this attraction is not only of its high living standard but also due to the many art events that habitually take place in the city. The city is now a leading commercial, financial, and high-technology centre. Among all, Frankfurt Airport is the largest airport in Germany and one of the busiest in Europe. The Eco-friendly atmosphere in Frankfurt stems from its centuries-old role as a trading centre. This generous and independent tradition of the city may be one reason for the fact that people from very diverse cultures have lived here in peace with one another for a long time.




Though Frankfurt is famous for business, banking and stock exchange, it also offers numerous museums, exhibitions, restaurants and gallery. Also, it is the home to most luxurious museums. The city almost has the immigrants from 180 different nationalit…

Knee replacement by Smart Implants

Image
Knee arthroplasty is a kind of surgical technique performed to relieve pain and also to restore the normal functions of the knee joint. It is commonly known as knee replacement. Currently, Knee replacement is performed for osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and also for some other knee diseases. Though knee replacement doesn't cure the osteoarthritis completely, 90% of people are undergoing this surgery just to get relief from pain and discomfort. 
The materials commonly used for artificial knees are the alloys of titanium, chromium and cobalt. The bearing portion of the knee joint should be wear and corrosion-resistant. Knee implant infection may happen for some people due to some autoimmune response occurred in the body triggered by metal hypersensitivity. Implant rejection is very rare.


Earlier, this surgery was performed to replace an older implant. But nowadays it is also being done for youngsters. It is tough for active people to undergo this kind of s…

Cure to Gastroparesis

Image
Food is essential for every human beings for survival. Digestion of food involves the breaking of larger food molecules into smaller particles and that can be absorbed by the cells of our body. Gastroparesis otherwise termed as "delayed gastric emptying" or "stomach paralysis", is a condition that affects the normal mobility of food from stomach to intestine. Sometimes, this may happen due to improper digestion.


The symptoms of this condition may include nausea, vomiting, burning sensation in the heart, feeling full when eating etc,. This may cause malnutrition, dehydration and some infection. The symptoms of gastroparesis may be mild or severe. Sometimes, it will create serious complications like diabetes, multiple sclerosis etc,.


The people with gastroparesis are suggested to have follow dietary modifications. They should eat nutritious food, should not overeat and do some exercises for proper digestion of food. They should avoid  eating junk foods low fat food di…

Magnetic Nanoparticles dissolve blood clots

Image
Blood is the most important constituent of the human body since it delivers oxygen and nutrients to each and every part of the cell and collect the metabolic wastes from the tissues for excretion. Blood is pumped by the heart and it is circulated throughout the body via major blood vessels. Only Blood carries the hemoglobin content and also maintains the body temperature,
Sometimes, there will be the deposition of fat in the tissues might happen due to improper diet, lack of exercises, obesity, overeating etc,. This will ultimately lead to the formation of blood clot. That will block the blood flow to the particular part of the body. Blood clot in the brain will result in stroke, in heart, it will cause myocardial infarction and heart attack , thrombosis in the blood vessel.
The only way to prevent this is to remove or dissolve the blood clot. Initially, surgeries are made to remove the bigger clots. For small clots, medications are prescribed.
Currently, doctors are using some clot d…

Wearable Smart Baby Monitor

Image
In recent years, the trending applications of smart materials is that they can accurately detect, track and measure the heart rate, blood pressure, calories and even footsteps of a person by the combined use of wearable devices and thesmart sensors. Certain wearable devices for adults can easily track the mental state by using breathing patterns of a patient. This device helps the person to reduce their stress and also inspires him/ her to stay calm throughout the day.
Similarly, for neonates, a team comprising of new parents and former engineers at Apple and Google, invented a innovative monitor called "Sproutling Baby Monitor" that help the parents to know how their baby is doing when there is no movement or noise, or at times when a parent cannot pay full attention to their babies. This monitor gathers 16 different measurements including the sleeping habits of a baby.



Sproutling Baby Monitor combines the use of three different elements: Wearable bandSmart chargermobile app

Night vision to Mammals by Nanotechnology

Image
As we all know, Nanotechnology is the branch of technology that typically deals with the nanometre ranged materials or structures. In our day to day life, its applications play a very important role almost in every field. One of its prominent application is towards the medical and biomedical field. 
The current application of nanotechnology is to trigger the tumour cells with the help of certain nanoparticles and kill them in a very short and safe manner. Nanoscale devices make use of sensors to detect the cancer cells inside our body in the cancer nanotechnology. In this type of sensors, they may use a wide variety of detecting elements such as carbon nanotubes, palladium nanoparticles, nanowires and so on.
A recent most fascinating application of nanotechnology is that they can give night vision to the mammals by using the lectin nanoparticles to fit the nanoantennae into the place.
Human eyes can sense the light in the visible range. It is impossible for human eyes to detect the l…
