Microfluidic hemoperfusion device for treatment of sepsis
We have developed a platform technology that leverages high flow rate microfluidics and advanced surface coatings to enable safe and efficient removal of pathogenic entities from blood. As an initial application we are focusing on removal of endotoxin for treatment of sepsis.
Nano Ebers: Effective Honey Chitosan Nanofiber Antimicrobial Wound Dressing
â€œNano Ebersâ€ wound dressing are electrospun nanofibers made from unusually high concentrations of honey (>50%) and chitosan. Nano Ebers, which can be further optimized to contain additional natural antimicrobials and wound healing materials, exhibit favorable higher antimicrobial and wound healing properties compared to commercial dressings.
Augmented Reality Solution for Sterile Field Proximity / Contact Detection and Visualization
A new computer-based sensing (e.g., passive/active computer vision), tracking, proximity/contact detection, event chaining, and visualization techniques to transform sterile field training techniques and clinical practices into an exercise that automates oversight and provides visual/auditory indications of performance to decrease nosocomial infections.
Improved Deep Brain Stimulation System for Increased Therapeutic Efficacy
Deep Brain Stimulation system for the treatment of Parkinsonâ€™s disease. The system is optimized for therapeutic efficacy, reduced side effects, and patient comfort. Optimization focuses the electrical stimulation to only the targeted brain area, substantially reducing the power demands, and allowing for miniaturization of system components.
A key piece of any artificial retina implant is the interface of an electronic signal with the neurons of the plexiform layer of the retina. Traditionally this connection is accomplished using an array of electrodes to send the signals to the neurons.
