COLUMBIA, Mo. – Nerve damage that leads to a loss of feeling or numbness in the feet is a big problem for the millions of Americans living with diabetes. As a result, foot ulcers can go untreated leading to infections and even amputations. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri are developing a bandage with “smart” […]
Currently, when the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wants to keep track of the waterfowl population in the state or monitor wetlands for invasive plant species, they send a natural resource manager into the field to do a manual count, which is very labor intensive and not very accurate. Other methods to monitor bird populations […]
A sensor prototype designed to noninvasively detect sleep apnea in infants earned a pair of MU Engineering students a couple of major accolades from IEEE.
An team of Mizzou and Lincoln University (Mo.) researchers has been perfecting a portable sensor to solve the issue of foodborne pathogens in poultry.
The Mizzou team of researchers utilized non-contact hydraulic bed sensors to estimate relative systolic blood pressure — the top number in a typical blood pressure reading — by extracting features from the ballistocardiogram (BCG) signal.
Now, thanks to a new grant from the National Institutes of Health, members of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology will investigate tailoring the system to alert the patients themselves or family members, providing actionable data that’s easy for non-health professionals to use.
A two-pronged robotic system pioneered by University of Missouri researchers, including the College of Engineering’s Gui DeSouza, is changing the way scientists study crops and plant phenotyping.
