New Gym Cameras

#Researchers from #Carnegie #Mellon #University have designed new “GymCams” for the efficient detection of repetitions; motions that ordinary #gadgets such as #smartwatches cannot #track with sufficient accuracy. These #cameras work on the principle of pixel-based #motion #detection and they do not capture or even require #personal #data such as facial #photographs. Wearable #devices currently being used for this purpose do record repetitions, but they have their own limitations. For example, a wearable smartwatch tied to the wrist simply cannot detect leg presses.

Teen Depression & Facebook

Nowadays, #teenagers are facing #psychological issues because of excessive #social #media usage, according to #researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. #Children in the age range 13 to 17 were interrogated by researchers. According to the researchers, #kids who spend more than 3 hours on social media every day, tend to display a variety of psychological #problems. They either get #depressed and withdraw from society or show excessively #aggressive #behavior. This landmark #study has been #published in JAMA Psychiatry (h-index: 335) and is a clear wake-up call for responsible #parents.

Hydrogel Fixes Damaged Hearts

A #hydrogel developed by #Ventrix, a Californian #biotechnology company, is showing great promise in treating damaged #cardiac #muscles. Ventrix successfully finished Phase 1 of the NIH-approved clinical trial and is looking forward to initiating Phase 2. #VentriGel, after being injected into the bodies of #patients with damaged #heart muscles, was found to repair the same. This was evident from the follow-ups conducted six months later. VentriGel is expected to not only heal the damaged heart muscles, but also to improve their overall functioning.

Antibiotic that damages hearts

According to #biomedical #researchers at the University of British Columbia,  fluoroquinolone-based #antibiotics can cause damage to the #heart. This research has been published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (h-index: 394). According to the team of scientists, fluoroquinolone-based #antibiotic #medicines trigger blood backflow into the heart. The database included records of 9 million patients and 12,505 cases of valvular regurgitation were detected. Researchers are now advising physicians to prescribe non-fluoroquinolone antibiotics to ensure minimal side effects.
