How Robots Are Helping in the Fight Against Paralysis: World Health Organization statistics show that 250,000 to 500,0000 people suffer spinal cord injuries every year. Falls, car accidents and violence rob people of their ability to walk, or in some cases, move at all. Today’s blog has some exciting news. Researchers in a US-Brazilian study used virtual reality and a robotic exoskeleton to help people with spinal cord injuries reactivate their damaged spinal nerves. Can these researchers cure paralysis? How Does This New Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Work? How does this potential treatment work? Virtual reality and the robotic exoskeleton trick the brain into thinking it is controlling limb movement. Users put on an Oculus (a virtual reality headset), where they control a digital avatar of their legs. The Oculus headset and robotic legs help trick the brain into thinking it is responsible for the movement. Over time, simulated movements help repair damaged spinal nerves, which allows participants to...

The Bad Driving Habit That Costs the US $109 Billion Every Year: A new report released by the Governors Highway Safety Organization (GHSO) claims drowsy driving killed 5,000 Americans last year. The report also claims drowsy driving accidents costs the US $109 billion annually, not including property damage. This number is greater than the gross domestic product (GDP) of many countries. According to the GHSO, drivers who have been awake for 21 hours are impaired in a way that is comparable to someone who is legally drunk. Drowsy drivers have memory problems, impaired judgement, inability to pay attention, slower reaction times and increased levels of risk-taking. Sound familiar? These are many of the same characteristics the Centers for Disease Control lists for drunk drivers. The GHSO report suggests that we must understand why sleep is important to reduce the number of drowsy driving accidents. However, there are other solutions that may help people avoid falling asleep behind the wheel. For example, it...

Can Hackers Take Full Control of Your Vehicle? Prepare to Be Surprised: Last summer, a duo of cybersecurity researchers shocked the automotive industry when they remotely took over several functions of a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee during a demonstration for Wired. If you remember the controversy surrounding this incident, the two hackers turned on the windshield wipers, changed the radio, and took over other functions of a Jeep containing a journalist for Wired. This led Fiat Chrysler to issue a software-related vehicle recall for certain models of its Jeep Grand Cherokees. This year’s demonstration by the same two hackers at the Black Hat security conference will shock you. Instead of turning on windshield wipers or forcing the car to select a radio station with terrible music, the demonstration involved taking full control of a Jeep Grand Cherokee. These functions include acceleration, steering and braking. Although this new hack requires the two cybersecurity researchers to plug into the vehicle using a laptop (instead...

CDOT’s New Campaign Shows the Consequences of Distracted Driving: The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) new campaign, Killer Habit, suggests many Coloradoans have a bad habit – distracted driving. CDOT’s frightening statistics show the scope of the problem. Last year, there were 15,574 car accidents in Colorado caused by distracted driving, 68 of which were fatal. CDOT will use online public safety videos to share its message of safe driving with the public. To reach the greatest number of people, CDOT will also position its ads in movie theaters and on smart phone apps like Pandora. CDOT’s campaign will ask Colorado drivers to treat distracted driving like any other bad habit – by consistently changing certain behaviors. For example, keeping mobile phones out of reach while driving to avoid the temptation of answering calls or texting. Why is CDOT’s campaign important? Distracted driving is a preventable cause of death and catastrophic injuries. Keep in mind, people involved in distracted...

This Fun Activity May Help During Brain Injury Rehabilitation: Do you enjoy playing video games? If so, it may surprise you to learn that video games have shown promise for helping improve the attention spans of people who have sustained traumatic brain injuries. Brain injury rehabilitation could one day include playing popular video games! Researchers at Macquarie University in Australia claim first-person shooter games (the Call of Duty or Battlefield series are examples) can be used to help brain injury patients. The study required participants with brain injuries to play first-person shooters so researchers could observe changes in cognitive ability. Keep in mind, that the participants used in the study had attention span deficits that made performing daily tasks difficult. Participants not only became better at first-person shooters; they also improved their speed for carrying out daily tasks. This is because video games require players to develop strategies and pay attention to win. The study raises some important questions....

Baby Strollers Are Linked to an Increase in Child Brain Injuries

New data collected by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System shows that baby strollers are the culprit behind child brain injuries. According to the data, 50 children are hospitalized from stroller accidents every day, many for brain injuries. Researchers were quick to suggest that this does not necessarily strollers are behind an increase, but that doctors have become more aware of how to spot brain injuries in children and babies. About 55 percent of these brain injuries affected children younger than one year old.

Most of the injuries occurred when children fell from a stroller or carrier or when they tipped over.

Study Finds Red Light Cameras Prevent Fatal Traffic Accidents: A study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) claims red light cameras can reduce fatal traffic accidents. You may be thinking, “I seriously hate those things”, but the research claims these cameras save hundreds of lives each year. The cameras are frequently used at intersections to catch drivers running red lights. There has been controversy surrounding whether these cameras are being utilized to maximize public safety or to collect revenue through issuing tickets. To gather data for its study, IIHS compared 14 cities that banned the cameras with 29 that kept their camera programs in place. Researchers then looked at crash data between 2010 and 2014. After researchers accounted for other causes of car accidents, they concluded removing the cameras led to a 30 percent increase in crashes involving drivers running red lights while passing through intersections. Many people killed by these accidents are cyclists and pedestrians,...

The Achilles’ Heel of Current Self-Driving Cars? Other Human Beings: We recently published a blog discussing a fatal car accident involving a Tesla Model S that had been using Autopilot at the time of the crash. The crash raised many questions about the safety of self-driving technology as it presently exists. According to Tesla, the accident happened because neither its Autopilot nor the driver noticed a large semi-truck turning left in front of the vehicle. The truck driver involved in the accident claims he heard a Harry Potter movie playing on the deceased Model S driver’s phone. This crash shows two weaknesses in self-driving technology as it exists today. We human beings may become inattentive when self-driving systems fail. In some cases, human drivers may be unable to react in time to avoid collisions with other vehicles or objects. In addition, plenty of us have bad habits and could place too much faith in this technology. People who are reading... Read More » The post The Achilles’ Heel of Current Self-Driving Cars?

Self-driving cars can improve our safety, but they may need to become even more autonomous to avoid accidents caused by human error.

Love the TV ads! The lady with the paper cut wanting to sue the paper maker; the video game player wanting to sue the power company. So funny and a great commentary on litigants today. Makes me think that this law firm may really be interested in helping people who are really hurt and not just those looking for a quick buck.
