Prosthetics is part of the field of biomechatronics, which aims to integrate mechanical, electrical and biological systems.  They are typically used to replace appendages lost to injury, missing from birth, or to replace a defective body part.  Prosthetics are important for the improvment to amputees’ lifestyles. This technology presents a 3D printed prosthetic hand and control system for upper limb amputees based on electromyogram (EMG) signal processing. The aim of this study is the extraction...

Achieving optimal diagnostic and therapeutic results in endoscopic procedures is highly dependent on image quality. Improved visualisation in endoscopy has been achieved using 4-LED Multi Light Technology. This new high performance illumination system ensures that the quality of imaging meets the highest standards in brightness and constrast with White Light and the new observation modes BLI (Blue Light Imaging) and LCI (Linked Color Imaging). With the involvement of numerous clinical experts, t...

It is critically important to prevent the high toll on patients and the healthcare system from medication delivery errors. To improve the quality of the patient treatment process, and the effectiveness of the healthcare system as a whole, an appropriate solution is needed. The broad goal is to minimise a possibility of harm to the patient, while ensuring that the administered treatment leads to a positive outcome. The problem: In general, medication delivery errors arise due to a number of ...

This technology is a non-toxic, biodegradable adhesive that allows bonding on wet surfaces, sealing of porous surfaces, and encapsulation of small molecules for controlled release devices. It is formulated with liquid polycaprolactone, a bioresorbable polymer, that has been exploited for production of polyurethane adhesives, medical devices, and drug delivery systems. The adhesive is hydrophobic, VOC-free, and is liquid at room temperature, and contains no toxic free radical initiators, hardener...

Current available lung models are limited in their ability to provide a realistic representation of a living human lung. As such, medical device companies resort to testing their medical products on animal models while students rely on static models and mannequins to learn about the invasive pleural procedures. However, the anatomy of animal lung is different from human and results obtained may not translate well when applied on the human body. To improve the training of medical personnel, and r...

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) are leading causes of blindness in the elderly worldwide. Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents are injected directly into the eye (vitreous humor), have emerged as the standard of care for these diseases. More than 10,000 injections per year are performed locally in Singapore National Eye Center (SNEC). Current studies on AMD and DR suggest that the administration of intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF ag...

In the field of work of an occupational therapist there is a need to provide suitable support and positioning for our patients. Positioning is vital in the recovery of some conditions that involve surgical interventions e.g. skin grafting. Traditionally thermoplastic materials were used to make splints for support however due to the complexity of some cases it requires a lot of time and material to construct the required support.  Hence the device that was prototyped aims to provide the requir...

Urinary catheters, especially indwelling catheters, are commonly used to drain urine from the bladder of patients whom are neurogenic bladder and incontinence patients. Catheters are replaced once every 2-3 days in order to prevent the attachment of microorganisms on the catheter surface. In 2011, the National Healthcare Safety Network of USA reported the occurence of catheter-associated urinary tract infections to be around 0.2-0.48 times every 1000 days. The adult indwelling catheters were use...
