During the past week we’ve discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the Daily ‘Paper’ and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

  • 3D Printed Conductive Casts & Cranial Implants : These look great – 3D-printed, custom casts; ready for various electrical devices (to accelerate healing, and to monitor progress) to be added.
  • Another Approach to Regrowing Bone Tissue : Using protein signals from stem cells. Very promising indeed.
  • Medication to Restore Aging Muscles : Can you rejuvenate aging muscle and brain tissue? Quite possibly.
  • Da Vinci Surgical Robot in Action : Video of this wonderful device in one of many test operations. Performing a little repair work on a grape.
  • Research on the Potential Regeneration of Nerves : Fantastic.

We also talked about The ever-growing assortment of fitness wearables, Update on the solar bike path and a whole lot more. Keep up with the World of Health & Fitness in the Straight to the Bar Community on Google+.

Incidentally, if you’d like to dive into this topic a little deeper (and I wouldn’t blame you for that – fascinating area), grab the daily Aging & Longevity newsletter. Dive in.

As much as I love training with free weights (and the occasional machine, for specific things) I'm partial to the occasional dose of bodyweight goodness. Particularly when travelling.
