Low cost, high performance 3D retinal imaging

Imaging the human retina in-vivo plays a very important role in diagnosing eye and systemic diseases. Accurate and early diagnosis gives the patient better chances of not losing their sight - on average 100 people are registered blind or partially sighted every day in the UK, but over 50 of these cases could be prevented with the state-of-the-art in disease treatment already available if diagnosed in time. Furthermore, the incidence of many eye diseases (lat. Caecitudo) such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma increases with age. Therefore, in an ageing society, extensive and accurate screening of the population is required to increase the quality of life of many and reduce the cost burden of public and private health systems that need to cater for the blind. Scientists at the City, University of London (CITY UL) developed an optically simple, potentially inexpensive device for extensive screening of the population for eye disease.

A device for studies of human interaction, dementia and movement disorders

A miniaturized PET brain scanner has been developed by the team of researchers at West Virginia University and the University of Virginia. The scanner can be 'worn' like a helmet, allowing research subjects to stand and make movements as the device scans. This Ambulatory Microdose Positron Emission Tomography (AMPET) scanner could launch new psychological and clinical studies on how the brain functions when affected by diseases from epilepsy to addiction and during ordinary and dysfunctional social interactions. Scientists could use AMPET to study Alzheimer’s (lat. morbus Alzheimerianus) or traumatic brain injuries, or even our sense of balance.

A novel ‘contact lens’ patch that treats eye diseases

Current localised treatment methods such as eye drops and ointments are hindered by the eye’s natural defences, blinking and tears. Eye injections can be painful and carry a risk of infection and eye damage. As a result, some patients are unable to keep up with the prescribed regime for their eye ailments, many of which require long-term management. However, a scientific group from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTUni) has developed a ‘contact lens’ patch with microneedles that could provide a painless and efficient alternative to current methods of treating eye diseases (lat. Caecitudo) such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. The proof-of-concept patch, successfully tested in mice, is covered with biodegradable microneedles that deliver drugs into the eye in a controlled release.

Ballistic Barrier: an origami inspired, deployable, bulletproof shield

A lightweight bulletproof shield inspired by a Yoshimura origami crease pattern has been developed by the researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU). The new ballistic barrier can be folded compactly when not in use, making it easier to transport and deploy. When expanded - which takes only five seconds - it can provide cover for officers and stop bullets from several types of handguns. The researchers worked with a federal special agent to understand what their needs were, as well as SWAT teams, police officers and law enforcement and found that the current solutions are often too heavy and not as portable as they would like. The team wanted to create something that was compact, portable, lightweight and worked really well to protect them.

Revolutionary waterless hygienic toilet

The Nano Membrane Toilet was developed by scientists at Cranfield University. The toilet was created as part of the global ‘Reinvent the Toilet Challenge’ set by the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The challenge was to develop a toilet that provides a safe sanitation solution for the developing world, at minimal cost to the user. Many areas which lack access to this basic need are also those areas with non-existent or unreliable water, sewage and electricity supplies. Cranfield’s solution is able to treat human waste on-site without external energy or water, allowing it to be safely transported away and potentially reused.

The CardiacSense: reliable cardiac and blood pressure monitoring

Simple to use, the non-invasive wearable device is worn on the wrist like a regular watch has been developed at CardiacSense. But behind the watch face lies a revolutionary combination of traditional ECG monitoring and state-of-the-art PPG technology. The continuous monitoring works to detect heart arrhythmias which may lead to stroke or cardiac arrest, in time for such an event to be prevented. The CardiacSense watch is currently in the advanced stages of FDA and CE certification. The CardiacSense watch is the most up-to-date, clinically-proven solution in cardiac monitoring. Reliable as it is innovative, it is the revolutionary way to ensure constant monitoring of your patient’s cardiac system and blood pressure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for as long as they need it.
