Magnetic therapy promises to reverse age-related conditions and metabolic disorders

An innovative magnetic muscle therapy developed by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS)and commercialized by HealthTEC.SG industry member

QuantumTx has completed a study involving 101 elderly participants. Using very low levels of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF), the participants reported significant improvements in mobility and blood lipid profiles after 8 weeks of treatment.

Stretchable smart knee wearable for monitoring joint movement

Wearables from conductive fabric are soft, malleable and comfortable for long-term monitoring. A team of researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) has created a knee brace with multiple integrated flexible sensors that enables real-time sensing of knee joint motion.

The key advantage of this smart knitted brace is that relying on fewer external components makes it more robust to impact and strains, and less error-prone from displacement of the sensors. Such wearables have many applications in the early diagnosis or monitoring of mobility-related conditions.
