The current health crisis of the world is getting very critical because it is not only killing patients but also the medicals staffs who are treating the patients. In China, more than 3,000 doctors were infected, nearly half of them in Wuhan, where the pandemic began, according to Chinese government statistics. Li Wenliang, the Chinese doctor who first tried to raise the alarm about Covid-19, eventually died of it. In Italy, the number of infected heath care workers is now twice the Chinese total, and the National Federation of Orders of Surgeons and Dentists has compiled a list of 50 who have died. Nearly 14 percent of Spain’s confirmed Coronavirus cases are medical professionals. Even though the data of how many medical personals ...

The means of the transmission of Coronavirus made our lives harder to continue in a same way in interaction to eachother and to our environment. According to WHO the best way to beat this health crisis is breaking the chain of transmission of Coronavirus. This means avoiding contact to eachother directly or indirectly. The scope of limitation of our activities is not just limited to eachother but on ourselves too. Meaning, we are limited to touch our face as much as possible. This is because the Coronavirus does not harm when it is in our hands since the virus does not penetrate our skins. But when we touch anywhere on our face it have higher chance of going in ...

The current main method for prevention of the Coronavirus is disinfecting the public surfaces that have high chance of interaction with people as much as possible. This is because the main route of transmission of Coronavirus from one person to another is through droplets which are sneezed or coughed out by infected people. A single cough can produce up to 3,000 droplets, while a sneeze can produce as many as 10,000. These droplets then fall on a surface that is touched by uninfected person, who then touches their face and in to mouth, eye or noise. According to the latest MIT report, the Coronavirus can travel 27 feet in the air horizontally and vertically and stay in the air ...

Due to the importance of individual health in preventing the transmission of infectious diseases to the individual, due to the increasing population of communities and the presence of humans in public places, the use of gloves has become very important, but the use of conventional plastic gloves because It's hard to put on and take off, and we have to get help from others to take off our gloves, which can contaminate the skin of our hands. Also, these gloves are like a piece of cloth, and the skin of the human hand needs perspiration and breathing after a while. The shortening of the skin surface becomes moist, which is a very favorable environment for the particles to stick ...

As COVID-19 has shown, challenge and crisis cross borders – impacting everywhere on Earth. However, innovation and ingenuity are also not constrained by geography. Detection of COVID-19 is an opportunity to find and apply the best and brightest of humanity. We're going to improve our design replicable, low-cost tool and resource to aid viral detection of the COVID-19. Computer vision as Deep Learning with OpenCV is used here, and can serve as a backup to the work done in the laboratory.

What're the goals of this project? 1) Detecting COVID-19 in X-ray with OpenCV; and 2) Detecting COVID-19 Virus Cells with OpenCV.

What hardware we have used? 64-bit Windows 10 PC, Raspberry Pi 3B+, and Jetson Nano.

First, we ...

Recently I met someone in the street who is in need of something but could not manage to explain because she was deaf and anyone in the street did not know any sign language. She asked me if I have any pen she could write with so that she can communicate with people for her urgent need. Sadly I did not have any so we spent considerable amount of time looking for one. Starting from that point I kept thinking in this technological age, why have not we developed a way that enable deaf people can speak? So, I designed a simple structured device with complex working function that can enable deaf people speak with sound so that any ...

Cancer treatments are frequently inaccurate as they can fail to precisely match with each specific patient/disease coupling. "CancerMate", stemming from the CAPTURE project that was rewarded in the INNOLABS cluster of Horizon2020, is an application that applies to this complex scenario of cancer growth and fight: we aim to reduce the cost of cancer treatment for the society as a whole.

Heading to convergence of diagnostic imaging, assay data and biomathematics, we aim to computational prognosis of tumors. Built for oncologists and surgeons in hospitals, and researchers in pharmaceutical and health care equipment industries, CancerMate is a game-changing tool, inspired by human physiopathology: CancerMate empowers the informed decisions on possible outcomes and optimal response to therapy, for each situation ...

PHAGE stands for the Personalized Health Academy of Guided Education. By providing a mapped patient journey (awareness, education, access, options, treatments, caregiving, followup, and outcomes) any user can step in to get guided support and become autodidacts to achieve health obtainable health outcomes.

One use case that seems to be a hurdle for most patients is therapeutic management. If a healthcare provided prescribes a therapeutic and your pharmacist fills the prescription with a generic equivalent then it is generally the onous of the patient to escalate concerns if the generic/equivalent isn't working. Most of the times generics work out fine but when they don't a delay to therapeutic management can severely limit favorable health outcomes. This is just one ...

In the era of the corona virus, we are warned not to touch our face, as this can transmit the virus from the hands into the body through the mouth, nose, or eyes. Yet most of us are unaware of how often we do touch our face. This device is a simple means of warning the wearer that s/he is about to touch her face. A primary goal of the design was to make it as inexpensive to manufacture as possible so that the device would be available to people of all income levels.

The basic concept is a "beeper" or other type alarm that sounds or vibrates when the elbow is bent sufficiently for the hand to touch ...
