Clinical Hospital No. 4 in Lublin launches a new, suplementary method of treating brain tumours, called NanoTherm. The treatment has the potential to extend the lives of patients. So far, this method has only been used in Germany.
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.
