    LLPSG NUS1
    bilioptics

    Department of Biomedical Engineering, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Assoc Prof. Dieter Trau
    Team Members: Li Shihao, Larry Loo, Alicia Tan, Saurabh Bhandari, Goh Ying Siu

    Neonatal jaundice is a prevalent disease worldwide, occurs in as many as 60% of term and 80% of preterm newborns within the first week of life. Thus, we are developing BiliOptics as a non-invasive bilirubin measurement device, which is suitable to be used during and after phototherapy to reduce the blood draw from newborns. Meanwhile, it provides timely and accurate results to assist medical practitioners in decision making and avoids skin pigmentation issue by measuring bilirubin level from sclera, which will be white regardless of race.

    LLPSG NUS1
    surgical tools checker

    Innovation & Design-Centric Programme, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Dr. Tang Kok Zuea
    Team Members: Wang Jianan, Li Zhong Tang

    Surgical Tools Checker (STC) is a system that utilises advanced imaging technology to mimic how human operators check and count surgical tools. Unlike the conventional manual process, STC can inspect an unlimited number of tools rapidly and examine their minute details with great accuracy. STC is able to inspect tools with 100% accuracy. STC is the future for safe, rapid, productive and cost effective management of surgical tools.

    ez cell

    Mechanobiology Institute, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Prof. Hanry Yu
    Team Members: Ng Chan Way, Ng Inn Chuan, Yu Yang, Huang Xiaozhong, Song Ziwei

    We provide animal/human liver cells to pharmaceuticals, research institutes, and CROs that need liver cells for drug testing. This is a one-stop solution for cell supply, which guarantees high quality and cost effective fresh liver cells. In B2C, we isolate and deliver primary liver cells directly to researchers to obtain reliable and reproducible experimental data. In B2B, we provide cells to CROs/research institutes to achieve scientific progression in toxicology, and to establish scalable drug screening models.

    LLPSG NUS1
    soft robotic sock

    Department of Biomedical Engineering, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Asst Prof Raye Yeow
    Team Members: Dr. Nicholas Cheng, Benjamin Ang, Low Fanzhe, Aaron Goh

    A novel soft robotic wearable that is lightweight, portable, and capable of providing passive assisted movements of the foot in dorsiflexion, plantar flexion, inversion and eversion. This system is designed to aid physiotherapists in carrying out time-consuming passive rehabilitative motions on bed-bound persons to prevent the development of ankle joint contractures.

    Department of Otolaryngology, NUH

    Principal Investigator: Asst Prof. Lim Chwee Ming, Asst Prof. Ren Hong Liang
    Team Members: Howard Poon, Tai Kai Li, Niam Jen Yang, Loh Ee Chian, Cheryl Chng

    Transoral surgical robotic systems, which are able to benefit patients with reduced trauma and healing time. Adaptive and Compliant Transoral Robotic Surgery (ACTORS) with Flexible Manipulators and Intelligent Guidance, will overcome the limitations of the existing robotic systems. Surgeons will be able access the tight confines of the upper respiratory tract and treat patients, specifically Asians, with obstructive sleep apneas, benign lesions and early to moderate stage cancerous tumors.

    tremex

    Department of Mechanical Engineering, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Prof. Seeram Ramakrishna
    Team Members: Tamil Selvan, Hassanali Ghaedamini Harouni, Jared Ramon Barahona Palma

    Tremor is defined as involuntary, rhythmic, oscillatory movement of a body part and is one of the more common movement disorders encountered in clinical practice. The diagnosis of tremor today is based on clinical history and physical examination of patient and there is no diagnostic standard to distinguish between different types of tremor. TremeX is committed to differentiate different types of tremors and help to diagnose the disease objectively using a wearable sensor.
