The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Many people suffer from amputation, which affects their lives severely by disabling them from doing chores in their daily life as well as chores related to work and leisure. For the last years, prosthetics’ development has been fast and the devices that are being used now are a miracle compared to what has been used before. But still, the battle is not over yet. Although scientists have techniques and devices to use nerve residues from the amputated limb to control the prosthetic, smaller devices that can detect the signals from those nerves better need to be developed. In this research ...


A Quantitative Analysis Of A Paper-Based, Laser-Defined, Oxygen-Generating Platform For Chronic Wounds, Tiffany L. Huang, Babak Ziaie Oct 2013

A Quantitative Analysis Of A Paper-Based, Laser-Defined, Oxygen-Generating Platform For Chronic Wounds, Tiffany L. Huang, Babak Ziaie

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Chronic wounds affect 6.5 million patients a year while consuming US$25 billion in health care costs (Sen 2009 Wound Repair Regen.). Despite advances in wound management therapies, modern treatment for chronic wounds still requires continual professional attention and expensive equipment, posing serious practical and financial burdens for the regular patient. To provide an alternative solution, we are developing a low-cost smart bandage platform that integrates actuators and sensors to monitor and treat chronic wounds. One component of the integrated platform is an oxygen-generating module. It is a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based microfluidic device fabricated on a parchment paper substrate ...
