ARTcut: Standardized injury of skin models for wound healing research

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/12/2014] Comparative research models are indispensable in wound healing research to evaluate new treatments of chronic wounds. Consequently, studies need to exhibit equivalent basic prerequisites and be conducted on similar wounds. This is why a team of researchers is working on an automated process to place standardized wounds in skin models.ARTcut: Standardized injury of skin models for wound healing research - Read more

Now, just in time for flu season, researchers have devised a simple yet accurate method for hospitals and public health departments to determine the onset of elevated influenza activity at the community level.A new tool for identifying onset of local influenza outbreaks - Read more

Higher, faster, more effective: Determining individual parameters

Individualized training is not just important for top athletes. Amateur athletes also refer to different body parameters to optimize their performance. During his lecture titled “Individual Training Based on a Set of Parameters”, Reimut Hellmerichs, Team Training and Management Expert with Polar, explained which parameters those are during the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE.Higher, faster, more effective: Determining individual parameters - Read more
