  1. It has long been recognized that chronic stress is detrimental to overall health and plays a significant role in many diseases. Unfortunately, stress is difficult to quantify, and devices that can measure stress do not provide output in a manner that is relevant to the user. Moreover, these current devices rely on measurements of a single parameter...

  2. Current implantable electrodes face many challenges in performance and biocompatibility since rigidity and flexibility cannot be satisfied at the same time. Specifically, for long-term biocompatibility and performance, implanted probes need to further reduce their size and mechanical stiffness to match that of the surrounding cells. However, this m...

  3. Biometric security systems that utilize fingerprints, electroencephalogram (EEG), and face recognitions are vulnerable to cyberattacks. With personal and confidential information at stake, it is vital that these systems are complex and able to resist data breakage. One form of protection is applying machine learning to these systems. Machine Learn...

  4. Haptic displays have promising applications in assistive devices for the visually impaired. However, current versions of this technology remain confined to low resolution tactile replications of images, and thus provide limited usefulness. Conventional haptic displays use motors or electrodes to convert images to touch, using an interface that is a...

  5. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) affects roughly 3%-6% of the working population ages 18-64. This affliction is caused by applying stress on the median nerve that is routed through the carpal tunnel while it is at a positive or negative angle to the human wrist. The median nerve often becomes inflamed and swollen due to pressure from the palmar carpal ...

  6. Orthopedic infection of prosthetic implants can be an expensive and serious medical condition. Bone cement (poly(methyl methacrylate), PMMA) is sometimes used in orthopedic surgery as a carrier for antibiotics and antifungal agents to reduce the risk of infection. However, its effectiveness is limited because only a small fraction of the total ...

  7. Pervasive Brain-Mobile Interfacing (BMoI) is a new trend that has significantly increased within this decade through the creation of wearable dry contact electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors. Unfortunately, current commercially wearable brain sensors have low accuracy, power limitations and computational restraint based from mobile devices. These lim...

  8. In standard medical practice, the patient and their medical image data are decoupled after imaging. Image visualization is primarily confined to screens that are not registered with respect to the patient's body. This is cumbersome and requires more time for healthcare providers to orient the images relevant to the patient. It would be ideal to hav...

  9. Due to the ease of application and their desirable properties, epoxies are one of the most commonly used thermoset polymers. They can be used in dental fillings, wind turbines, adhesives, corrosion protectants, and so much more. The reason why epoxy resins are available for such a large range of applications is due to the nature of epoxy structure ...

  10. Nanoscience is widely used today across a diverse product array. Applications such as food containers for improved product freshness, textile coatings for impact minimization, battery technologies for increased product life, cosmetics and genetic screening for drug compatibility are examples of commercial products that use nanotechnology. Nanotechn...
