Exoskeleton Could Benefit Elderly Patients, Stroke Patients And Paraplegics
2013-11-12 12:08:48

[ Watch The Video: Exoskeleton Animation ] University of Cincinnati Researchers are studying human movement as they work on creating an exoskeleton to benefit elderly patients, stroke patients and paraplegics. What if certain patients could get a bionic pick-up without undergoing the pain and lengthy recovery of surgery? University of Cincinnati researchers are working on just that idea, with the start of an exoskeleton to support people who – through age or injury – are...

A previous accident had left her paralyzed from the chest down. Recently,...

Impact On Shellfish From Ocean Acidification
2012-08-06 14:24:57

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online In the journal Global Change Biology, a worldwide study is published to understand and forecast the likely impact of ocean acidification on shellfish and other marine life living in seas from the tropics to the north and south poles. Ocean acidification is occurring because some of the increased carbon dioxide humans are adding to the atmosphere dissolves in the ocean and reacts with water to produce an acid. According to the...

Aragonite is a polymorph of the mineral calcite, both having the chemical composition CaCO3. Its structure differs from calcite and leads to a different crystal shape, an orthorhombic system with acicular crystals. By repeated twinning pseudo-hexagonal forms result. It may be columnar or fibrous, occasionally in branching stalactitic forms called flos-ferri (flowers of iron) from their association with the ores at the Carthinian iron mines. The type location for aragonite is Molina de...
