Cervix Elasticity Monitor
The main goal of this project is to develop a cost-effective device for detecting conditions leading to spontaneous preterm delivery to save children’s lives by directing such women to preventive clinical treatment.
Tactile + Electromyography Imager
This project goal is to develop a device for targeted treatment of urinary incontinence and overactive bladder. This technology is based on a fusion of the tactile and electromyographic imaging in one probe to allow the guided therapy of these disorders.
Laparoscopic Tissue Monitor
This project targets the development of a laparoscopic probe for measurement of soft tissue elasticity, strain hardening, hysteresis, tissue heterogeneity and detection of a blood vessel in urogynecological surgery.
Tactile + Raman Spectroscopy
This project goal is to develop a new apporach and device for highly accurate cancer imaging in surgery.
