A self-powered sensor developed by Waterloo Engineering researchers could allow doctors to remotely monitor the recovery of surgical patients.
The small, tube-like device is designed to be fitted to braces after joint surgery to wirelessly send information to computers, smartphones or smartwatches to track range of motion and other indicators of improvement.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo have reached an important milestone by logging their 100th kilometre on public roads in a self-driving car.
