The debt-funded deal is expected to close by year’s end. Blue Belt, which had revenue of $19 million in 2015, makes a computer-assisted surgical drill called the Navio that is approved for partial-knee replacement surgeries.

Robotic surgery now used for sleep apnea in Austin clinic. AUSTIN, Texas - Waking up all night, snoring, tiredness in the morning, being easily distracted and crankiness are all signs that you have sleep apnea.

Robotic surgery now used for sleep apnea in Austin clinic

While you may think it’s just a matter of insomnia, you’re wrong. It’s actually a physical condition that can cause more than a bad mood. Dr. Matt Meigs, an ear, nose and throat physician at the Austin Regional Clinic said sleep apnea and lack of sleep are contributing factors in many deaths. "High risk of car accidents, high risk of stroke, high risk of heart attack, high risk of high blood pressure and there's evidence that it affects blood sugar metabolism," he said. That means it also can cause you to gain weight. Sensing bionic limbs are here — and they work. New research from Johns Hopkins University and DARPA shows how far sensing bionic limbs have come, proving that the technology is well on its way to offering real limb replacement.

Sensing bionic limbs are here — and they work

The breakthrough comes by way of patient interaction as much as advanced engineering, as work with real amputees shows how natural bionics sensing can really be. The researchers recount an episode in which they decided to trick the participant by stimulating two fingers, rather than just one — the patient immediately asked if someone was playing a trick on him, by changing the rules of the test. That convinced them that the sensing is both genuine and, more importantly, natural-feeling. The patient had responded to the novel input very quickly, without stopping to interpret the meaning of the signal in the brain. Double bionic arms, designed and installed by Johns Hopkins. Sensing is quickly becoming a limiting factor in bionic control.

World faces challenge as technologies lengthen life expectancies, biologist says. Stanford Report, March 1, 2006 By Melissa Fusco Shripad Tuljapurkar In the 21st century, state-of-the-art anti-aging technologies may extend human lifespans at an unprecedented rate, bringing with them a host of social and economic challenges, says biologist Shripad Tuljapurkar of Stanford University.

The combined impact of these medical advances would have major implications for the global community in the new century. Tuljapurkar, the Dean and Virginia Morrison Professor of Population Studies, will give a talk Feb. 17 on the demographic and economic consequences of anti-aging therapies at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in St. 3D system to detect bombs. Pins 'obsolete within five years' - and pay with mobile or fingerprints instead. So-called "personal identification numbers" were invented in the 1960s with the introduction of cash machines and there are around 10,000 different variations but because it can be written down or guessed, criminals are able to exploit this weakness.

Customers who write down their Pin, even in a disguised form, will be considered "negligent" under banking rules which means their bank does not have to return stolen money. More than 96pc of transactions are used via chipped credit or debit cards and prevent fraudsters from spending in shops using just a copycat card. But last year the British banking industry lost almost £480m in card fraud - more than any year in the past decade except for 2008.

The Pin will be "dead" by 2020 as a result because customers will lose faith in its ability to protect their money, according to David Webber of Intelligent Environments, which provides mobile payments software to UK high street banks, including Lloyds Bank and Halifax.
