Assessing Heart Function and Fluid Status with Cardiac Scales: Interview with John Lipman, CEO, and Corey Centen, Founder, Bodyport | Medgadget

Posted on

Bodyport, a medtech company based in San Francisco, developed the Bodyport Cardiac Scale, a set of weighing scales that can non-invasively assess fluid status and heart function. The scales can detect these signals through the feet when a patient steps onto the device.

AI-Powered Robot Accelerates Medical Research | Medgadget

Posted on

Researchers at the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Japan have developed an AI-powered robotic system that can perform laboratory experiments in regenerative medicine, learn from the results, and perform iterative rounds of experimentation to achieve a certain goal. In a proof-of-principle, the researchers set the robot the task of optimizing cell culture conditions to create a maximal number of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells. The robot improved the percentage of stem cells within a culture that differentiated into RPE cells from 50% to approximately 90% over six months of experimentation, and the researchers estimate that it would have taken humans approximately 2.5 years to achieve the same thing.
