Activating brain protein shown to aid in stroke recovery

By - February 22, 2011 1 Picture
It’s certainly not a news flash to say that being in a stimulating environment, where there’s plenty to perceive and think about, is good for the brain – new neural pathways are formed, and existing ones are kept from atrophying. Now, however, researchers have discovered a way of replicating and reinforcing those good effects in any environment. It is hoped that the new technology will allow strokes to be treatable up to two days after they have occurred. Most current treatments must be administered within a matter of hours after the event.

Mechanical bolt-on KERS hybrid for buses offers 30% fuel saving

By - October 3, 2009 1 Picture
It seems that the lessons learned in developing a mechanical KERS system for F1 may yet hold the key to a low-cost, high-efficiency hybrid system particularly suited for the stop-start patterns of buses, which are quite similar to the distances between capturing and delivering energy of those of a race car. Torotrak will deliver a paper at the SAE Commercial Vehicle Congress in Illinois next week showing how flywheel KERS for buses can offer more than 30 percent fuel saving over the London bus test cycle, yet package around an existing transmission.

Carcoon Server Shield portable clean room protects your hardware

By - June 15, 2009 1 Picture
Responsible IT departments have well established data backup procedures and disaster recovery plans to cope with the unexpected. But some threats to IT infrastructure - like the dust created by building works in the vicinity of sensitive and valuable hardware - are known about in advance. To cater for such scenarios, Carcoon, the UK manufacturer of inflatable covers for cars and motorcycles, has developed the Server Shield. Read More

New EEG method predicts neurological recovery of cardiac arrest patients

By - May 11, 2009 1 Picture
The VTT Technical Research Centre in Finland is Northern Europe's biggest contract research organization and provides high-end technology solutions, often combining different technologies to create new innovations. One new breakthrough that's certain to be watched closely later this week will be that of VTT Research Scientist, Miikka Ermes (M.Sc., Eng.), who will publicly defend his doctoral thesis presenting methods for analysing human biosignals, including innovative methods for the verification of brain damage following cardiac arrest. Up until now, the use of electroencephalography (EEG) in the monitoring of cardiac patients has been limited due to interpretation difficulties. Read More
