By following 60 people through their everyday lives, NIBIB-funded researchers at Stanford found that smart watches and other personal biosensor devices can help flag when people have colds and even signal the onset of complex conditions like Lyme disease and diabetes. Learn more at ScienceDaily:
Can your smart watch detect when you are becoming sick? A new study indicates that this is possible. By following 60 people through their everyday lives, researchers found that smart watches and other personal biosensor devices can help flag when people have colds and even signal the onset of complex conditions like Lyme disease and diabetes.

After a stroke, patients typically have trouble walking and few are able to regain the gait they had before suffering a stroke. Researchers funded by NIBIB have developed a computational walking model that could help guide patients to their best possible recovery after a stroke. Learn more at NIBIB:

For the seventh year in a row, U.S. News and World Report ranked the NIH-developed DASH Diet “best overall” diet. With its focus on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean proteins, the diet also ranked as the best for healthy eating, and tied as the best for heart disease prevention. http://1.usa.gov/1ObH5OD
The best diets are easy to follow, nutritious, safe and effective for weight loss and preventing diabetes and heart disease.

Tattoos aren’t just for body art. They can have medical applications, too. Doctors are using them on patients to mark an area for future treatment — particularly for non-melanoma skin cancer such as basal cell carcinoma — but the inks can cause problems. Now NIBIB-funded scientists have developed a better solution. Learn more at ACS:

Researchers funded by NIBIB have developed a way to automatically label images of individual vertebrae during spine surgery, preventing mistakes and saving surgeons both time and stress in the operating room. Learn more at NIBIB
Researchers funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering have developed a way to automatically label images of individual vertebrae during spine surgery, preventing mistakes and saving surgeons both time and stress in the operating room. New work recently published by the Johns Hopkins University team demonstrates the accuracy, feasibility, and advantages of having the technology in the operating room.

Motivated by the tribulations of hemophilia patients and their families, NIBIB-funded researchers are working to develop a pill to treat this serious inherited bleeding disorder. Learn more at NIBIB:
Motivated by the tribulations of hemophilia patients and their families, NIBIB-funded researchers are working to develop a pill to treat this serious inherited bleeding disorder. Oral delivery of the treatment--clotting factor IX--would allow individuals with type B hemophilia to swallow a pill rather than be subjected to several weekly injections of factor IX to control potentially fatal bleeding episodes.
