Hormone therapy helps treat eating disorders in transgenders 13.1.2018 General News
Hormone therapy may help reduce the feelings of body dissatisfaction associated with eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia in transgenders, a study has found. Eating disorders including anorexia, bingeing, self- induced vomiting and the misuse of diet pills and laxatives have been linked to people's deep-seated unhappiness with their body, fuelled by Western society's obsession with an idealised image of beauty. For some transgender people, striving to achieve a masculine or feminine body shape can influence their eating behaviours. While in the case of transgender males (assigned female at birth but who identify as male) who are not on hormone treatment some may even restrict what they eat as a way of stopping menstruation.

Soon, wearable robots to help older people walk around 12.1.2018 General News
Scientists have designed a wearable robot that will help older people with weakened muscles and mobility issues by supporting their hip joints while walking. The wearable system consists of plasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC) gel, mesh electrodes, and applied voltage, according to the study published in the journal Smart Materials and Structures. The mesh electrodes sandwich the gel, and when voltage is applied, the gel flexes and contracts, like a muscle. It is a wearable actuator, the mechanism that causes movement. "(In our) current study, (we) sought to develop a lightweight, soft, wearable assist wear for supporting activities of daily life for older people with weakened muscles and those with mobility issues," said Minoru Hashimoto, from the Shinshu University in Japan. "We thought that the electrical mechanical properties of the PVC gel could be used for robotic artificial muscles, so we started researching the PVC gel," said Hashimoto. "The ability to add voltage
