New Biomedical Device Uses Nanotechnology

Abstract:
The U of A research team has invented a self-powered wireless microsensor for monitoring the bone healing process after surgery - it is so tiny it can fit onto the tip of a pen. Using nanotechnology, the researchers built a device that measures and compares the relative osseointegration of a hip implant over time. The sensor is permanently implanted with the joint and is powered kinetically - it uses the natural movement of the patient's body as its power source.
