Autopilot Single-Jet 3D Electrospinning platform for Engineering Clinically Relevant 3D Topographic Fibrous Scaffolds for Biomedical ApplicationsElectric field-driven polymer jet self-directs its writing of fiber deposition toward a 3D collector in a silkworm-like fashion that self-constructs 3D-topographic fibrous scaffolds with high porosity, mechanical robustness, and shape memory beneficial for biomedical applications.
Carbon Monoxide Prodrug and Related Delivery Systems for TherapeuticsThis technology is a class of small molecule prodrugs that release carbon monoxide (CO) under specific physiological conditions with dose control and without specialized settings or external stimuli. It could be used for a wide range of medical applications such as anti-inflammation, cancer treatment, pain management, and acute kidney injury.
Linear Displacement Adhesion Assay (LiDiAA)Linear Displacement Adhesion Assay (LiDiAA) platform is the world’s first automated benchtop instrument for high-throughput label-free adhesion measurement of single cells and their collection. LiDiAA simultaneously measures the attachment of thousands of individual cells to a surface within minutes and retrieves post-measurement cells based on their adhesion strength.
AI-assisted Personal Training Gear to Monitor and Enhance Exercise PerformanceThe solution consists of a set of tight-fit and sweat-wicking bodywear and a complimentary software. The 16 wearable sensors equipped in bodywear monitors wearer’s movements and muscle activities during exercise. The proprietary AI pose recognition and fatigue prediction algorithms provide users real-time coaching advice to maximize their training performance.
AI-based Customized Fabrication Approach for Orthotic Insole Design: 3D Textiles and 3D PrintingAn AI-based framework is proposed for prescription of orthotic insoles. Novel 3D spacer fabrics with inlays are incorporated with 3D printing technologies for personalized insole fabrication. It offers good air and moisture permeabilities, and better control of plantar pressures for rehabilitation treatment and accommodate needs of individual patients.
OpiTracker for Universal Detection of OpioidOpiTracker is a colorimetric opioid detection technology shown to detect opioid on any surface or in a solution without using a detection device. An eye-readable red to blue color change indicates the presence of opioid. It detects any opioid including fentanyl derivatives that bind to human opioid receptor.
