Reheal glove

University of Texas at Arlington and University of Washington researchers are developing a healing glove that delivers needed medicine to an injured hand and speeds up healing so that rehabilitation can start sooner, Today’s Medical Developments and Congoo News reported. The flexible polymeric glove, dubbed the REHEAL Glove, is for treatment after hand trauma. The UTA Research Institute will develop the glove and associated controls while the University of Washington will conduct a small pilot study.

Nursing help

The University of Texas at Arlington is partnering with RE2 Robotics to develop an adaptive robotic nursing assistant that will help nurses with some of their tasks in a hospital, Inside Unmanned Systems reported. The goal of the project is to provide nurses with help in lifting patients, keeping those patients in bed and walking those patients.

Campus chapels

AIA Dallas' Springboard blog featured an interview with Jane and Duane Landry, two prominent local architects, about North Texas college campus chapels. The Landrys' story was excerpted and adapted from their interview with the Oral History of Texas Architecture Project at UTA, a project sponsored by the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture. Kate Holliday, an associate professor in the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs, is heading up the project and conducted the interview.
