    A new minimally invasive approach to treat essential tremor through ultrasound waves sent to the brain was approved last July by the FDA. This innovative system has the advantage of avoiding the risks of a brain surgery. But it has an ethical downside: It burns part of the brain cells. And there are no studies yet...

    The AspireAssist System is a brand new approach and a minimally invasive alternative to weight loss surgery, which has been recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The system works by removing a portion of the food from the stomach through a tube before the calories are even absorbed. For that, a...

    Researchers from the University of Alberta in Canada and the University of Southern Denmark have been testing a new, non-invasive method of spinal assessment that uses vibrations to identify conditions that may be invisible to MRI and other imaging techniques. This technology, sold by VibeDx, employs a small probe to...

    A team of researchers from Seoul National University in South Korea is developing a smart patch to replace finger-prick glucose tests and drug injections. Made from graphene, the device measures glucose in sweat and is connected by wires to a portable electrochemical analyzer. When blood sugar is too high, it releases...

    The California-based company Inscopix has created nVista, a tiny microscope that can fit inside a mouse’s head while the animal is alive and active. This new device will help neuroscientists observe neural circuit dynamics and understand how the neurons in the brain communicate with each other. Researchers place a...
