Towards better hip replacements

Porous implant has potential to extend life of hip replacements by mimicking quality of real bones
Wed, 2016-11-02 10:42

By Katherine Gombay
Some potentially good news for aging Baby Boomers: researchers believe that they have developed a hip replacement that will last longer and create fewer problems for the people who receive them than those currently in use. The secret? An implant that “tricks” the host bone into remaining alive by mimicking the varying porosity of real bones.

Interestingly, the key factor that distinguishes the new implant is that is LESS rather than more solid than those in current use, while still being just as strong.

3D depth-sensing camera shown to measure walking difficulties

A commonly used device found in living rooms around the world could be a cheap and effective means of evaluating the walking difficulties of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.

The Microsoft Kinect is a 3D depth-sensing camera used in interactive video activities such as tennis and dancing. It can be hooked up to an Xbox gaming console or a Windows computer.

Student Felix Lamy wins 'opportunity of a lifetime'

Sat, 2016-07-30 11:50

The Gatineau native and McGill University student was named the first Canadian winner of the Infiniti Engineering Academy competition on Thursday. That earns him a yearlong paid internship in Europe, with his time split evenly between the Infiniti Research Centre in Enstone, England, and the Renault Formula One racing team, which has its headquarters in Cranfield, England.
