The detection of signals about your heart and muscle activities has now become easier, thanks to this group of researchers from the Institute of Basic Sciences (IBS) for developing a portable soft mesh that can track the health of the heart.
Now, a soft portable mesh can record signals from the heart and muscles, thanks to the team of researchers from the Institute of Basic Sciences (IBS) in South Korea, which has developed this wonderful device that provides information on muscle and heart dysfunction, according to a latest media report published by the Hindustan Times. This device, experts say, will pave the way for a new generation of flexible portable health control devices. It is an implantable device that could be used to relieve pain, rehabilitation and prosthetic motor control. The study published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology highlights that this device is one of the first soft implants that can keep track of cardiac activity In multiple points of a porcine heart.
Researchers have used this device on human skin to Tracking the electrical activity of the heart and muscles. They are known as electrocardiogram (ECG) and electromyogram (EMG) respectively. According to the researchers, the device is soft, elastic and stretchable, allowing it to follow the contours of flexible joints like the wrist.
It can be used in a forearm for the simultaneous monitoring of EMG signals and the delivery of electrical and thermal stimulations to be used for therapeutic purposes. In addition, researchers have produced a large custom mesh that fits the bottom of a pig heart.
Choi Suji, one of the IBS researchers, said: "Although several soft cardiac devices have been reported for the rat heart. This study on pigs can approximate human physiology more accurately. "
"Our goal is to study heart disease and stimulate the heart more effectively by synchronizing cardiac pump activity," added Suji.
