Cell sorting is used to identify, count and extract specific target cells from a generic population, such as blood for disease diagnosis or cell cultures for tissue engineering. Typically, target cells are fluorescently labelled and detected via laser excitation. Current methods are inefficient, missing some target cells and causing significant cell death - often only half the target cells are collected alive. This technology brings cells along a microfluidic conveyor belt in single file, interr...

We have developed a unique algorithm with a suite of software tools to enable the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), specifically deep learning, for sparse, or noisy data, that is typicaly found in experimental research and development environments. Our core software encapsulates a new algorithm and architecture for deep learning that allows very sparse data to be used to train new models. Currently deep learning requires large amounts of high quality data to train on to generate accurate mod...

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) are the leading causes of blindness in elderly patients worldwide. Over the past decade, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents injected directly into the posterior segment of the eye have become the standard of care for AMD and DR. However, the injections are invasive, uncomfortable and difficult for patients to comply to.  While anti-VEGF treatment is shown to be efficacious, the regimes studied especially...

Diabetic foot is one of the major complications experienced by diabetic patients. Thus, early detection and appropriate treatment can prevent traumatic outcomes such as lower limb amputation. The temperature variations on the plantar foot can be related to diabetic foot complications. Infrared thermography allows qualitative and visual documentation of temperature fluctuation in vascular tissues. This work introduces a computer aided detection (CAD) system for diabetic foot using plantar foot th...

Threatened miscarriage is the most common gynaecological emergency, occurring in about 20 per cent of pregnant women. It is defined as an ongoing pregnancy associated with vaginal bleeding, with or without abdominal pain, before 24 weeks of gestation. Approximately one in four of pregnant women in this group go on to have a spontaneous miscarriage. Almost all pregnant women at risk of threatened miscarriage experience great anxiety and emotional stress, which increases the need for close follow-...

Blood clotting is perennially associated with hemolysis and platelet activation in medical devices (such as the centrifugal and axial blood pumps) due to fast moving parts or high flow velocities. Fast moving parts or high flow velocity impart a large shear stress on blood, distorting and damaging blood cells and activating platelets. Hemolysis can lead to systemic inflammation and organ failure, breakaway clot pieces can cause thromboembolism and tissue damage, and clot formation on devices can...

Glaucoma is one of the most commonly encountered age-related eye diseases that affects ~64.3 million individuals, and this is expected to 111.8 million in 2040. A potentially blinding condition, lifelong eye drops are necessary in order to keep the disease under control. Unfortunately, 80% of patients with glaucoma are non-adherent to their medication regimens. EyeDEA changes this by improving patients’ understanding of their regimens and providing patients with a simple, portable storage device...

The conventional methods for cultivating stem cells typically require the use of animals and biochemical growth factors. These methods are costly and the stem cells produced are often cancerous. The technology is a method for growing stem cells without the need of animals or biochemical factors. The device, called inorganic sculptured extracellular nanomatrices (iSECnMs), uses nanoscopic structures on its surfaces to stimulate cell growth. The material is biocompatible and low-cost, so the devic...

Patients who lose their voice box after a laryngectomy (surgery to remove the larynx in the throat), usually due to throat or larynx cancers, need to use an external medical device known as “Electrolarynx” as a mean to speak again. An electrolarynx is a non-invasive electro-mechanical hand-held gadget that has a vibrating plastic diaphragm. When this vibrating diaphragm is pressed onto the patient’s neck it produces a vibration in the throat that duplicates the function of the vocal cords. Thus...

This device is used to detect the early stage of knee cartilage degeneration. People do not feel the knee pain when the cartilage is already damaged at the onset due to the lack of nerve supply to the cartilage tissues. We usually only recognize cartilage damage when we feel pain and that is usually too late. Early detection of the cartilage damage can help us take care of our knees effectively and may reduce the chance of knee replacement surgery in the future. The principle of this device is t...

The laryngoscopy blade is used to facilitate endotracheal intubation. It is also a lifesaving procedure for obtunded patients who are unable to maintain an open airway. Due to certain anatomical features, some patients experience more difficulties during intubation. As such, many types of laryngoscopy blades with different blade curvatures are available to overcome a difficult airway. However, the trial and error method often results in delays of intubation and increased risk of airway trauma fo...
