Boron Hydrogel Helps Muscles Heal

A newly developed hydrogel could greatly accelerate the recovery times for damaged muscles, by flooding the injury site with boron
A newly developed hydrogel could greatly accelerate the recovery times for damaged muscles, by flooding the injury site with boron

 

Over the past few years we’ve seen some interesting examples of how injectable hydrogels can boost the recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, whether by flooding them with stem cells or acting as supporting scaffolds. Scientists in Spain have now developed a hydrogel that releases boron to dramatically accelerate the formation of new muscle fibers. read more

There are energy sources all over the place, if you know where to look. Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have now designed new modular nanogenerators that can harvest energy from a variety of different types of motion, such as ocean waves or a person’s body movements. read more
