Active Projects

Novel Endotracheal Tube System (NETS)

The NETS utilizes smart materials for intuitive endotracheal tube placement and superior mechanical securement, as well as sensor feedback for placement confirmation.

Combat Suction Device (CSD)

The CSD is being developed for use in combat and civilian emergencies, enabling high performance in austere, pre-hospital settings.

Fiber Optic Microneedle Device (FMD)

The FMD is a sharp catheter capable of simultaneous codelivery of laser energy and drugs in solution. The platform is being developed for cancer treatment, vaccine delivery, and optogenetics.

ULiSSES for Limb Preservation

The ULiSSES is an advanced tissue preservation system for extending the maintenance of avulsed limbs 5-10X to allow for patients to recover sufficiently to undergo reattachment surgery.

Bladder Vision (BV)

The BV system generates 3D models of the inner surface of a bladder detecting abnormalities using computer vision and machine learning techniques.

Multistage Polymer (MSP) Implant

The MSP implant is being developed for minimally-invasive implantation and localized release of drugs at a controlled rate, avoiding systemic side effects via a fully biodegradable system.

Inactive Projects

MIL-STD Testing Supraglottic Airway (SGA) Devices

Supraglottic Airway (SGA) devices are an alternative airway management technique to endotracheal tube intubation (ETI). The major objective of this project is to find the optimal SGA device for inclusion in combat medics’ aid bag by performing MIL-STD-810H tests on commercially available SGA devices.

IV Patency (IVP) Monitoring Device

The IVP will notify medical caregivers when an IV ceases operating in a healthy state.

Chronic Wound Bandage (CWB)

The CWB is an improved wound covering for at home patient use that integrates a externally refillable reservoir and controlled release of healing factors over several days.

Digital Extenders (DE)

A digital exoskeleton enabling substanial lengthening of a caregivers digits, the DE is being developed as a superior tool for laryngoscopy.

Stimson Facilitator System (SFS)

The SFS integrates electrical stimulation, heating, and low level light stimulation into a single physical therapy device to promote better healing of injured joints.
