UW‒Madison researchers have developed a bandage that uses the body’s own electrical energy to speed wound healing. The futuristic bandage, developed by Xudong Wang, professor of materials science and engineering at UW–Madison, and researched on human skin by Angela Gibson, MD, PhD, assistant professor of surgery at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, … Continue reading Bandage uses body’s own energy to speed wound healing

Vascular replacement is a pretty common surgery in the United States, with an average of 450,000 patients per year receiving vascular grafts to treat blood clots, coronary disease, stroke damage and other problems. Once surgeons place a new blood vessel, its health is monitored by CT scans, ultrasounds and other expensive imaging techniques. Despite all … Continue reading Interior design: New 3D-printed artery can monitor blockages from the inside
In 2017, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his right collarbone in a game against the Minnesota Vikings. Typically, it takes about 12 weeks for a collarbone to fully heal, but by mid-December fans and commentators were hoping the three-time MVP might recover early and save a losing season. So did Xudong Wang, a … Continue reading Self-powered implantable device stimulates fast bone healing, then disappears without a trace
A new hair-growth-stimulating device has been developed by engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The prototype is self-powered, generating electricity from everyday body movements, and is unobtrusive enough to hypothetically fit under a baseball cap. Electrotrichogenesis (ETG) is not a particularly new method to combat baldness. The idea is that mild electrical stimulation can enhance … Continue reading Tiny, self-powered, hair-growth-stimulating device fits under a baseball cap
MADISON — Few things on earth strike fear into the hearts of men more profoundly than hair loss. But reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by engineers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. “I think this will be a very practical solution to … Continue reading Electric tech could help reverse baldness
For nearly as long as people have been experiencing hair loss, people have been searching for ways to reverse it. Now, a team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison think they have a promising — and discreet — solution. A device, hidden by a hat, that sends low-energy electric pulses to stimulate hair growth. Xudong Wang, UW-Madison material science … Continue reading UW Study: Electric Pulses Hidden By Hats Could Help Reverse Balding
An electric patch makes hairless mice grow fur and may reverse balding in men when fitted inside a specially designed baseball cap. At the moment, men who don’t want to go bald can treat hair loss using minoxidil lotion, finasteride pills or hair transplant surgery. But minoxidil doesn’t work for everyone, finasteride can reduce sex … Continue reading A hat that zaps the scalp with electricity helps reverse male balding
It’s very exciting! Rise Technology team has been admitted to the NSF UMD-Innovation Corps program as part of Mid-Atlantic I-Corps Hub. (National Science Foundation (NSF) Regional Innovation Corporation (I-Corps™)) In the I-Corps regional course, STEM researchers and aspiring entrepreneurs “get out of their comfort zone” and learn from potential customers. The goal is to determine … Continue reading Rise Technology in upcoming NSF UMD I-Corps Cohort!
