Danish invention preserves muscle mass in Covid patients

Engineering researchers from Aarhus University have developed electronic support stockings and tested them on bed-ridden Covid patients at Copenhagen University Hospitals, Bispebjerg and Herlev. The experiments show that the stockings counteract a significant loss of muscle mass.

Soluble, printable sensor to measure pressure inside the body

With a grant from Independent Research Fund Denmark of DKK 2 million, a team of researchers from Aarhus University hopes to develop a sensor made of novel conductive materials that can be implanted in the body, accurately measure the pressure of the selected organs, and then dissolve when it has finished its task.

What should we do about the enormous flow of data from the city floating around on the internet? How do we find connections and patterns that can transform into useful insights for the authorities, businesses, the police, hospitals and, not least, the people living in the city? The answer is artificial intelligence, and researchers from Aarhus University will lead the european technology development in the coming years.
