Sensors
Highlighting weekly insights into the world of sensors, a foundational technology behind the scenes of many high-growth and non-obvious market verticals from Biology to Industrial IoT.
Sensors as therapeutics? Leveraging ultrasonic sound waves, new nano-sensors have the ability to stimulate nerves and monitor the health of organs from inside the body. This emerging field of artificially stimulating nerves is called acoustic neuromodulation and many researchers highlight sensors as the enabling technology. Neuromodulation has the potential to replace pharmaceutical drugs for treatment of a variety of chronic diseases, including arthritis.
