Recent Advances In Aiding People With Disabilities

| No Comments


EyeEar.pngSome recent developments in aiding people with visual and auditory disabilities have been brought to my attention by fellow staffer WG.  In no particular order, here they are:

*  The FDA approved a new drug last month to treat patients with multiple sclerois.

*  The FDA also approved use of an "artificial retina" (or bionic eye, if you prefer).   

New eye drops can help prevent macular degeneration.

*  And out of Germany, there's news of an "innovative hearing aid"  that can better assist persons hard of hearing.
