Analysis of physiological data will offer new ways to better train Polish Olympic athletes and monitor the preparation of astronauts for spaceflight. Researchers analyse the relationship between the frequency of heart contractions and the frequency and depth of breath of athletes.
A small, light foam created at the Warsaw University of Technology looks inconspicuous, but has an important role: it is a "scaffolding" that helps in bone reconstruction. It will also be easier to use it in the operating theatre than other bone substitutes, say its creators, scientists from the Warsaw University of Technology.
Based on current analysis of parameters such as heart rate, blood sugar level or adrenaline level, the system developed at the University of Warsaw will allow to adjust the level of physical activity to the current capabilities of the body. It is designed to automatically modify the load so that the athlete maintains an optimal training intensity level.
Polish surgeons from the Medical University of Warsaw performed a pioneering intravascular repair surgery of the Nellix stent graft, implanted a few years earlier due to abdominal aortic aneurysm. This is the first successful surgery of this type in Europe and probably in the world, the university representatives say.
Is it possible to detect cancer and determine its malignancy degree in a few minutes or even seconds? It turns out that it is. This is possible with innovative diagnostic tools: Raman optical biopsy and virtual histopathology, developed in the Laboratory of Laser Molecular Spectroscopy (LLSM) of the Lodz University of Technology.
