  • 3D VR blood flow to improve cardiovascular care
    el día mayo 13, 2020 a las 5:55 pm

    Biomedical engineers are developing a massive fluid dynamics simulator that can model blood flow through the full human arterial system at subcellular resolution. One of the goals of the effort is to provide doctors with a virtual reality system that can guide their treatment plans by allowing them to simulate a patient's specific vasculature and accurately predict how decisions such as stent placement, conduit insertions and other geometric alterations will affect surgical outcomes.

    A new study shows how virtual urgent care appointments increased by more than 600 percent, signaling a possible long-term shift in healthcare delivery. […]

  • New device simulates feel of walls, solid objects in virtual reality
    el día abril 28, 2020 a las 12:46 pm

    Today's virtual reality systems can create immersive visual experiences, but seldom do they enable users to feel anything -- particularly walls, appliances and furniture. A new device, however, uses multiple strings attached to the hand and fingers to simulate the feel of obstacles and heavy objects. […]

  • Anxious about public speaking? Your smart speaker could help
    el día abril 25, 2020 a las 1:41 pm

    Researchers have developed a public-speaking tutor on the Amazon Alexa platform. The tutor enables users to engage in cognitive restructuring exercise -- a psychological technique that helps anxious individuals recognize and modify negative thinking behaviors. When users deployed the tutor in a recent study, their pre-speech anxiety was relieved, according to the researchers. […]
