Improved nutrition for Malawi’s rural population

Southeast Africa's Malawi is one of the world’s poorest countries. For the rural population of this landlocked country, fish is an important food resource. Yet stocks in Lake Malawi have declined drastically in recent years. This is especially true of a local and highly popular species of cichlid known as chambo, which is a key source of protein for the rural population. Researchers from the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Marine Biotechnology and Cell Technology EMB have now teamed up with partners to launch a raft of measures designed to remedy the precarious food situation. These include the introduction of new hatchery equipment, enhanced breeding methods, new sources of protein-rich fish food and training programs for rural fish farmers. The research team hopes that this will make chambo farming more efficient and sustainable and, in general, improve the production of not only fish but also vegetables.

A gentler technique for artificial respiration

In intensive care wards, artificial respiration is often used as a last resort to save a patient’s life. Unfortunately, however, it brings with it the risk of acute or chronic lung damage, particularly if the ventilator is working against the patient’s respiratory impulse. Therefore, researchers from the Fraunhofer Project Group for Automation in Medicine and Biotechnology in Mannheim are working on an innovative new sensor aiming to provide a gentler way to administer artificial respiration, especially for children and newborn infants. A prototype of the sensor system will be on display at the MEDICA trade fair in Düsseldorf from November 18 to 21, 2019 (Hall 10, Booth G05).

Neural networks enable autonomous navigation of catheters

When a patient has a stroke, every minute counts. Here, prompt action can prevent serious brain damage. If a clot is blocking a large blood vessel in the brain, surgeons can remove this occlusion by means of a catheter inserted in the patient’s groin. However, this is a complicated procedure, requiring a lot of experience, and only a few specialists are capable of carrying it out. In new work, Fraunhofer researchers have been investigating whether artificial intelligence might be used to steer a catheter automatically and reliably to a blocked blood vessel. Initial tests with a simulation model and in the laboratory have been highly promising. The research team will be demonstrating this new technique on a blood vessel phantom at the MEDICA 2019 trade fair in Düsseldorf from November 18 to 21 (Hall 10, Booth G05).

Preventive health care via app

Demand for apps for preventive health care is growing all the time. Particularly popular are diagnostic assistants that record physiological and fitness data. However, there are data protection concerns with these tools. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Application Center SYMILA in Hamm have developed two prevention apps that safeguard users’ data protection rights. While teamFIT is aimed at sports trainers who want to monitor the current state of fitness of their teams, BAYathlon is designed to help detect a specific form of cardiac arrythmia at an early stage. From November 18 to 21, the team of researchers will be demonstrating how the apps work at MEDICA 2019 in Düsseldorf (Hall 10, Booth G05).
