For those who can admit to murdering at least one plant in their lifetime, things might finally become a whole lot easier than that excruciating once-a-week watering duty you once had…Scientists have now invented small sensors that can alert us when our houseplants plants are thirsty — and more importantly, they can reveal early signs of drought to farmers.According to Lab on a Chip, engineers from MIT have developed tiny sensors that can be printed onto plants.These sensors can measure, in real-time, the aperture of a plant’s stoma: the tiny pores that gas and water vapor pass through, as seen below.Technically referred to as ‘stomatal electro-mechanical pore size sensors’ (SEMPSSs), the sensors are created using an ink made of carbon nanotubes that conduct electricity.They are printed on each side of the pore’s opening using a micrometer; a non-destructive and extremely precise instrument.
Approximately 146,000 people in the UK are dealing with a hidden condition that causes their daily life to be more difficult, dictated by access to bathrooms.Some colitis patients require surgery to remove their bowel and will need to have a stoma - an artificial opening made to bring part of the intestinal tract out through the abdominal wall - to bypass the problem areas when passing stools.Others might not need surgery, and can even go into periods of remission where symptoms of the disease disappear before ‘flaring up’ again at a later date.“Even when I am in remission, like I am now, I take between 12 and 18 tablets a day and have to have blood taken at least every three months,” explains Kathryn Fairfield, 36, a police officer from Fife, Scotland.“These tablets have various side effects including hair loss, sensitivity to UV and a compromised immune system.“But to people who don’t know me I look fit and healthy, work full time as a police officer and run about after four kids and two dogs!
It’s estimated one in 500 people in the UK live with a stoma (or ostomy) - a surgical opening made in the skin as a way for urine and faeces to leave the body.There are many reasons why a person might need one: they might have had cancer or a bowel obstruction, or they could be living with a condition like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.Fiona Munro had a stoma fitted after undergoing intensive treatment for ovarian cancer.He said he has to carry spare items wherever he goes, “because you’re guaranteed the one time you forget, you’ll need it”.She’s been vocal about the lack of appropriate toilet facilities for people with a stoma, after she was forced to kneel on a dirty floor to change her bag.“Stories like mine are sadly all too common - the worry of going out and not knowing whether you will be able to find toilets that meet your needs limits many people with a stoma from being able to live a full and active life.”
Scientists at the MARCS Institute at Western Sydney University in Australia have demonstrated a groundbreaking noninvasive artificial larynx that could be used to give a voice back to patients around the world, whose voice boxes have been removed as the result of cancer.What makes the Pneumatic Artificial Larynx (PAL) demo different to other artificial larynxes is the fact that it doesn’t require invasive surgical implantation and utilizes a patient’s own respiratory system in order to work.The existing type of treatment involving artificial larynxes means surgically implanting a prosthetic device into the stoma, an artificial opening in the neck made by a surgeon.Not only is this approach invasive, but it also opens patients up to the risk of infections and can result in a voice that sounds strained and whispery.“Despite emergent progress in many fields of bionics, a functional Bionic Voice prosthesis for laryngectomy patients (larynx amputees) has not yet been achieved, leading to a lifetime of vocal disability for these patients,” the researchers write.The so-called “Bionic Voice” offers an alternate approach.
I certainly have and usually regret doing so.The combination of office work, freezing weather and limited sunlight makes it difficult to achieve that tanned look deemed so appealing.There’s always something to aspire to, whether it be an ideal weight, body shape, complexion or ‘look’.Ten years ago a study in the British Medical Journal reported that one in 10 people (and nearly half of all young women) had a body piercing other than an earlobe.And, far from being a modern, media-driven phenomenon, I would argue that this has always been the case.It has implications for how you behave, your chances of getting a job, your chances of finding a partner, mental well-being, the list is endless.
Further investigation could lead to the development of new compounds that can be used to extend the freshness of cut flowers and flower bouquets, reduce transportation costs for plants and be applied as drought resistance agents for crops.Opening of stomata leads to carbon dioxide uptake, explaining why photosynthesis occurs during the day.When plants are under dark conditions and/or drought stress, a plant hormone, abscisic acid (ABA) is biosynthesized and induces stomata closure.When the guard cells in the stomata detect blue light, the photoreceptor, phototropin is activated and induces signaling within the cell.Although activation of PM H+-ATPase is known to be significant for stomatal opening, the full mechanism of stomatal opening is yet to be clarified.ITbM, which officially started in 2013, has a chemical library managed by Dr. Ayato Sato, consisting of both commercial compounds and compounds synthesized by ITbM's chemists.
The whole thing’s absolutely disgusting.I wouldn’t wish this upon anybody, I really wouldn’t.”In August 2017, Sarah Bookham was rushed into the intensive care unit at Great Western Hospital in Swindon.She spent the next 11 days in intensive care where she had six further life-changing operations.The mum-of-four now has a large stoma – an opening on her abdomen which allows food waste to pass out of her body.The ordeal has had an impact on her mental health, to the extent that she’s felt suicidal and has been prescribed anti-depressants.

Laryngectomy is the removal of the larynx and separation of the airway from the mouth, nose and esophagus.In a total laryngectomy, the entire larynx is removed (including the vocal folds, hyoid bone, epiglottis, thyroid and cricoid cartilage and a few tracheal cartilagerings).In a partial laryngectomy, only a portion of the larynx is removed.Following the procedure, the person breathes through an opening in the neck known as a stoma.This procedure is usually performed by ENT surgeon in cases of laryngeal cancer, and an individual's quality of life can be affected post-surgery.

How do you show that tools do what they have to do?When deploying and measuring results of the use of medical devices, you look at things other than medicines.A tool mainly contributes to resolving a functional disorder.For example: a stoma bag does not help to solve the medical cause or deviation of the bowel or bladder, but it does make it possible that you can function without being in the toilet all day, a hearing aid ensures that you can communicate with you again.In the case of device care, you, as a user, will therefore assess together with the therapist whether the device is working properly.Tool care is tailor-made and that is not for nothing.
