|Walking Paraplegics - Science Fiction or already Reality|
The last Tatort "Maleficius" on ARD has portrayed the potential of exoskeletons in the health sector. In an interview with RWTH Aachen University, our colleague Lukas Bergmann presented the state of development of today's exoskeletons.
Funding for the construction of an exoskeleton
In the meeting on Dec. 17, 2018, the board of the Stiftung Universitätsmedizin Aachen decided to support our project "MedIT Exoskeleton/Development of Rehabilitation Robotics for Persons with Limited Walking Ability" with a total of € 61,800.
Press release for IEEE BSN 2017
The IEEE BSN 2017, which was held from the 9th - May 2017 in Eindhoven, was well received by almost 160 registered conference participants. Of special interest was the inspiring presentation by Prof. Pim van der Jagt, Ford Research Europe, about "body-friendly sensor technology in the car". Ford and MedIT have a succesfull kooperation in research and develop for biomedical technique in a car.

Holste-Foundation funds development of new implant | Tuesday, 10-02-2007
In Germany around 10,000 patients are getting surgery every year to receive an implant for administering a therapy against Hydrocephalus. This clinical pattern shows a disruption of the eauillibrium between production an reabsorbtion of the watery liquid, which surrounds the brain. The increased fluid portion in the skull leads to increased brain pressure. A hydrocephalus can be inherent or can for example be caused by cerebral hemorrhage, meningitis or a brain tumor. [...]

The Pulse Beat of Medicine | Friday, 12-01-2006
What is Personal Health Care? "A change of paradigms", says Prof. Steffen Leonhardt of the Chair for Medical Information Technology at the Helmholtz-Institute for Biomedical Technology, RWTH-Aachen.
The Thirst Sensor | Friday, 09-29-2006
The Chair for Medical Information Technology (MedIT) of the RWTH Aachen develops a sensor that monitors the body's hydration status. This sensor is important because as the human body ages, it loses the ability to activate the thirst sensation, therefore the resulting dehydration is a serious medical problem in the elderly.
