    SOPORTE ROBÓTICO

    SOPORTE ROBÓTICO

    Los investigadores de la Universidad de Columbia han desarrollado un collarín robótico para ayudar a los médicos a analizar el impacto de los tratamientos contra el cáncer en la movilidad del cuello, y para guiar la recuperación del paciente. Las técnicas actuales que los médicos usan para evaluar el rango de movimiento en el cuello y los hombros que un paciente pudiera perder después del tratamiento, no proveen mucha ayuda, e identificar qué pacientes están en mayor riesgo representa un reto significativo. Por lo tanto, los investigadores están enfocados en hacer que el tratamiento del cáncer de cabeza y cuello ya no sea literalmente un gran dolor de cabeza.

    Blue Light!

    Blue Light!

    Prolonged exposure to the blue-tinted light in LED bulbs has been linked to cataracts, insomnia and fatigue. NSF-funded researchers at the University of Houston are working to reduce the amount of blue light generated by LED bulbs, improving our sleep and protecting our eyes as well.

    METABOLIC AGE

    METABOLIC AGE

    An international team of scientists, funded in part by NSF, analyzed the average number of calories burned by more than 6,600 people, across 29 countries, ranging in age from one week to 95 years and learned that infants had the highest metabolic rate, burning calories faster than all other age groups.

    SMART CEMENT

    SMART CEMENT

    NSF-funded engineers at Northwestern University are developing materials resilient enough to weather the forces of nature. This includes introducing nanoparticles into the manufacture of cement, making it smarter, more durable, tougher, and highly functional. They are manufacturing “smart cement.” Learn more with NSF’s “The Discovery Files.”

    BATTY MOSQUITOES

    BATTY MOSQUITOES

    Having reviewed a comparative study on mosquitoes, NSF-funded researchers are exploring why blood-sucking flies discriminate when it comes to selecting their hosts. They’ve learned it’s likely an attraction that might not even go skin-deep, but a community of bacteria that has taken up residence on the skin. Learn more with NSF’s The Discovery Files.
