Completed Projects

TwitchView

TwitchView is an improved battery powered peripheral nerve stimulator also known as a Train of Four Monitor.

TwitchView is used to assess neuromuscular transmission when neuromuscular blocking agents are administered to a patient during surgery. TwitchView is a big improvement over the previous Train of Four Monitors in that it uses Electromyography (direct measurement of electrical transmission through the nerves) rather than a patient mechanical response to determine the level of neuromuscular block. The device also displays detailed response waveforms and a historical response graph. It has the capability to send all this information to a remote server over the Internet.

The Compass

The Compass family of portable disposable digital pressure monitors for medical applications.

 

The initial goal of this project was to produce a very low-cost disposable pressure monitor that can be used to determine whether a needle is in a vein or an artery during Central Venous Catheter insertion. Once the initial product was developed, many other medical uses became apparent. Currently, 8 different Compass models have FDA and CE Mark (European Union) and are being sold worldwide. The latest version of the Compass uses low energy Bluetooth to wirelessly send an accurate pressure waveform to a remote multifunction monitor, Apple IOS devices (iPhone, iPad) and Android devices.

DMK11A

The DMK11A marine data recording box provides boat owners with wireless access to their marine instrument data on IOS(iPhone, iPad), Android and Windows devices.

The product is a combination of hardware and software. The hardware accepts signals from any combination of the three most popular marine data buses and relays it over a Wi-Fi connection. In addition to displaying data locally in real-time, the DMK11A can archive data for later playback and review. The DMK11A is sued by both pleasure craft owners and commercial fleet owners around the world.

NexGen Software

NexGen is a Real-time Casualty Assessment Training System developed for the Military and First Responders.

The NexGen system was developed for the Department of Homeland Security as a training device for military units and 1st Responders to allow them in real-time to train in responding to both natural disasters and acts of terrorism.

NexGen Hardware

The system is unique in that it was one of the very early adopters of data over cellular and required no dedicated infrastructure. All other solutions to this training problem required permanently fixed infrastructure meaning that 1st Responders and military units had to travel to a specific location to train. The NexGen system allowed training to occur at the unit's home location.

The system provides both position and biometric information- heart-rate and whether the player is standing, crouching sitting or prone. In addition, the system can alert the player that he has been incapacitated or “killed” in response to a simulated environmental or terrorist event.
