Addressing unilateral facial paralysis by creating a measurement and control system for facial pacing, which measures facial movements from the healthy side of the face and uses functional electrical stimulation ...

Creating a flexible and scalable life-cycle and durability tester capable of handling a wide range of new medical products for design development and verification testing.

Addressing three major challenges when developing a new, ultrasmall-diameter, sophisticated ultrasonically activated scalpel (UAS). It needed to have a flexible measurement and control system that could ...

Proving the feasibility of a new chest strap measurement principle to get a robust and reliable read out of breathing rate and depth, making breathing measurements more accessible to a larger audience ...

EnvisEng set out to provide a system that consistently measures and analyses human balance on one leg to assess the progress of patients under their rehabilitation treatments to regain mobility.

Prototyping a bearingless (magnetic-levitation) blood pump that requires integrating various types of analog and digital devices, such as power amplifiers and digital sensors. Magnetic-levitation control, ...

Developing a realistic, reliable, and reconfigurable testing environment to advance and improve a novel heart assist device without the need for animal testing.

Developing a system for electroencephalogram (EEG) acquisition, analysis, and presentation, according to user-defined demands, for the Neurophysiology Laboratory at the Institute for Medical Physiology ...

Neurologically impaired patients need to recover the cardiovascular system and relearn lost skills such as floor walking. The LYRA® is a robotic device that assists the patient and therapist in this difficult ...

Developing a system that can record the activity of large populations of neurons in the visual cortex of a mouse while it actively interacts with its environment to understand how the brain selectively ...

Building a device to control the local environment of fruit flies and reliably record their courtship songs, which can be difficult because of low volume and varied environmental factors like temperature, ...

Developing a highly accurate and precise proton beam control solution to deliver a prescribed radiological dose to a specific location within a tumor.

Developing a portable, image-guided, medical robot that autonomously performs blood draws and other IV procedures when medical professionals are unable to successfully access veins.

Driving a multichannel array with continuous wave and independent channel phase excitation to manipulate particle clusters and objects as small as 10 µm in real time using ultrasound, and permitting the ...

Today, patients who require surgical treatment while in space would need to return to Earth for that surgery. To move closer to a future where physicians can operate in space, an experiment must be designed ...

To develop a high-precision medical device pacemaker, we had to develop a system that can be tested with the pacemaker. Testing the medical device is difficult and complex because of the equipment required ...

By combining MRI 3D intraoperative imaging with robotics, healthcare professionals can create guiding interventions with precise closed-loop instrument delivery. But because MRI is highly sensitive to ...
