  • Erlangen (Germany). Some 400,000 people in Germany each year suffer from painful pressure sores on the skin, known as decubitus ulcers. These sores pri-marily affect bedridden patients who cannot be sufficiently mobilized, or whose position cannot be changed frequently enough. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS collaborated with five partners in the development of a mattress that prevents and treats decubitus. From November 14 to 17, Fraunhofer IIS will be presenting a prototype of the mattress at the MEDICA trade fair in Düsseldorf.

  • Erlangen, Germany: Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in Germany, with an approximated annual mortality rate of 26,000 people. About 90 percent of these cancer cases feature adenomas in form of polyps – making their detection a key issue in order to preventing colon cancer. Within the scope of the “KoloPol” project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed software that automatically detects and visualizes hypothesis of polyps, making screening for colorectal cancer potentially more efficient and effective. Fraunhofer IIS will present the real-time polyp detection solution at the Medica exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany from November 14th to 17th, 2016.

    Joseph-von-Fraunhofer-Preis 2016: Alexander Zink, Martin Speitel, Max Neuendorf vom Fraunhofer IIS (vlnr) Digitalradio in Deutschland, Europa und der Welt

    Digital radio makes spherics and crackling interference in radio broadcast a thing of the past. New technologies from Fraunhofer IIS make it possible for digital radio to replace analogue short and medium wave broadcasting around the world. Even local FM transmissions are being converted to digital. As a result, Digital radio listeners benefit from clear reception, a wider range of programming, and additional information via data services without having to pay for a costly Internet connection.
