Health care, AI feature in innovation

Health care and artificial intelligence will be common in the 751 innovative programs to be displayed by 75 domestic and overseas universities at the 20th China International Industry Fair.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University will allow visitors to view implantable instruments like intravascular stents and bone nails made of magnesium alloy or zinc alloy at its booth at the CIIF. The instruments can break down into a small amount of hydrogen and magnesian or zinc ions gradually as patients recover.

As the hydrogen can be released outside the patient’s body and the magnesian or zinc ions can be absorbed by human beings healthily, the products are believed to be safer than existing products made of stainless steel, cobalt-chromium alloy or nickel-titanium alloy, which cannot break down and are risky in causing inflammation.

Meanwhile Donghua University is showing a physiotherapy device developed with graphene-based heating material, which has proven to be useful in easing strain of lumbar muscles and cervical spondylosis.

The tablet-shaped heating device can be attached to any part of the body and is able to transmit infrared ray and low-frequency pulse to stimulate nerves, muscles and cells to dilate blood vessels.

The device can also be connected to an app on smartphone, which can collect and analyze data with artificial intelligence and recommend proper physiotherapy to users.
