Artificial joint restores wrist-like movements to forearm amputees

Artificial joint restores wrist-like movements to forearm amputees

Press Releases   •   Nov 28, 2018 07:00 GMT

A new artificial joint restores important wrist-like movements to forearm amputees, something which could dramatically improve their quality of life. A group of researchers led by Max Ortiz Catalan, Associate Professor at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have published their research in the journal IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems & Rehabilitation Engineering.

Removing toxic mercury from contaminated water

Removing toxic mercury from contaminated water

Press Releases   •   Nov 21, 2018 07:00 GMT

Water which has been contaminated with mercury and other toxic heavy metals is a major cause of environmental damage and health problems worldwide. Now, researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, present a totally new way to clean contaminated water, through an electrochemical process. The results are published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

How to melt gold at room temperature

How to melt gold at room temperature

Press Releases   •   Nov 20, 2018 07:00 GMT

When the tension rises, unexpected things can happen – not least when it comes to gold atoms. Researchers from, among others, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have now managed, for the first time, to make the surface of a gold object melt at room temperature.

Skeletal imitation reveals how bones grow atom-by-atom

Skeletal imitation reveals how bones grow atom-by-atom

Press Releases   •   Nov 19, 2018 07:01 GMT

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered how our bones grow at an atomic level, showing how an unstructured mass orders itself into a perfectly arranged bone structure. The discovery offers insights which could yield improved new implants, as well as increasing our knowledge of bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
