Faster walking pace beneficial to biological aging

April 22, 2022

The first-of-its-kind research to look at how walking pace may influence health and biological age has put forth a genetic link: scientists from the University of Leicester, UK, now confirm that walking faster is likely to lead to a younger biological age, as measured by cell structures known as telomeres. Scientists analysed pooled movement activity […]

Implantable stimulator powered by walking to treat damaged tendons

September 1, 2021

A novel stimulator device developed at the National University of Ireland-Galway (NUI Galway) harnesses energy from mechanical action, such as walking, to speed up musculoskeletal tissue regeneration – timely tissue regeneration is important notably for tendons or vital support structures damaged either by disease or injury. The stimulator device by NUI Galway uses a piezoelectric […]
