COVID-19 in our dust may help predict outbreaks, study finds

A study done in rooms where COVID-19 patients were isolated shows that the virus’s RNA can persist up to a month in dust. The study did not evaluate whether dust can transmit the virus to humans. It could, however, offer another option for monitoring COVID-19 outbreaks in specific buildings, including nursing homes, offices or schools. […]

Powered prosthetic ankles can restore a wide range of functions for amputees

Powered prosthetic ankles can restore a wide range of functions for amputees

A recent case study demonstrates that, with training, neural control of a powered prosthetic ankle can restore a wide range of abilities, including standing on very challenging surfaces and squatting. The researchers are currently working with a larger group of study participants to see how broadly applicable the findings may be. Start the conversation, or […]
