Groundbreaking Diagnostics Solutions
Product News Apr 26, 2016
Maddison Limited, Newcastle University and Newcastle hospitals are working together to develop groundbreaking diagnostics technologies to help thousands of people across the UK and further afield.
This huge advancement in technology involves developing a pioneering diagnostics solution to accurately detect and record electrical signals passing through muscle fibres when the muscles contract.
Electromyography uses fine needles to detect these electrical signals. This new system takes this further to record the activity from 64 points along the length of the needle instead of just a single point.
This new technique can now build an image of the muscle fibres to help diagnose diseases that affect the muscles and nerves, such as motor neuron disease, much more accurately than previously known, changing the face of diagnostics as we know it.
Maddison have worked with the Newcastle team to create the mechanics of this development as well as the industrial design element of the product.
