Smelling Through Microfluidic Olfaction Technology
Detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the exhaled breath is found to be a promising method to diagnose different diseases. The amount of alcohol or drugs absorbed/inhaled in the body can also be measured using ...
Development Of A Dynamic, Reconfigurable Finger-Hand Skeletal Structure
A finger or hand brace may be required to be worn for people who require physical support or ‘controlled motion’ support. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) patients have connective tissue disorders, and wear braces to support ...
Focused Ultrasound Surgery Of Breast Cancer: A Computational Study On A Realistic Patient Model
Focused ultrasound surgery (FUS) is a new energy-based therapeutic technique which has been recognized as a truly non-invasive surgical method. Since the ultrasonic energy is applied from an external transducer, FUS has ...
Helical Spring Design Optimization For Endoscopic Devices Using A Design-Of-Experiments And Response Surface Approach
Flexible endoscopes require reliable advancement and steerability of the device tip. Helical spring design is critical to both endoscopic steerability and cable function. To characterize the impact of geometric and material ...
Investigation Of Epithelial-To-Mesenchymal Transition Through Microcontact Printing
We have used microcontact printing as a means of simulating injury or wounds in a healthy monolayer of LLC PK1 cells to study the expression of Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) signature proteins. Cells were ...
Development Of A Rehabilitation Mobility Assistive Device
The aim of the overall research presented here was to investigate the motion of a wheeled mobile robot in an indoor (structured) setting while following a pre-set trajectory. An example of an application for this research ...
