Amrita Wireless Sensor Networks All Set for World’s Tallest Mountain Range

Landslides

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are one of the most promising emerging technologies, providing the opportunity for real-time monitoring of geographical regions (remote and hostile) that are prone to disasters. With a focus on landslide detection, the Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications (AmritaWNA) set up a complete functional WSN system consisting of 50 geological sensors and 20 wireless sensor ...

Core-Shell Nanomedicine for Targeting Multiple Targets in Cancer

Nano Medicine

The Amrita Center for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine has developed a novel core-shellnanomedicine that can simultaneously target two critical cancer mechanisms in drug resistant blood cancer. Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a type of blood cancer caused by a protein known as BCR-ABL, a protein not found in healthy individuals. Existing drugs, such as Imatinib and Dasatinib, can prevent the development of the BCR-ABL ... Read More »

Design and Analysis of a Parallel Haptic Orthosis for Upper Limb Rehabilitation

Upper Limb Rehabilitation

Parallel haptic orthoses were designed to improve human locomotion capability, develop joint strength, and increase endurance through physical rehabilitation exercises for the human limbs. The development of such rehabilitation devices improve the quality and increase the frequency of physical rehabilitation exercises that a patient has to undergo during treatment. This paper describes the design of a grounded hand and arm ... Read More »

Tantalum Oxide Honeycomb Architectures for the Development of a Non-enzymatic Glucose Sensor With a Wide Detection Range

Honeycomb

Tantalum oxide honeycomb nanostructures (THNS) were fabricated by electrochemical anodisation of tantalum in H2SO4-HF medium. XRD analysis showed that annealing of THNS at 400 °C improves the crystallinity. HRSEM and AFM results illustrated that nanopores with an average diameter of 30 nm were uniformly distributed and the pore size reduced to 24 nm and 18 nm during subsequent electrodeposition of ...

Molecular Docking Studies Elucidating the Interaction of Anacardic Acid With MMP2

Biotec

The prevalence of diabetes is increasing worldwide and impaired wound healing is a pivotal event responsible for a large number of deaths associated with diabetes. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the wound healing process and methods to improve this knowledge will be of great importance to develop new therapies. The major roadblock, however, in the development of new therapy is ... Read More »
