Designing Zero Power Sensors

If a “zero-power” sensor is created, sensors in hard-to-service locations will need less frequent maintenance and reduce the use of these batteries in sensor networks.


Finding A Fix For Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ) is one of the most common causes of knee pain and functional limitation seen in humans today, and its prevalence is on the rise.



A Twist on Old Paradigms

It’s not just technology that’s undergoing dramatic changes, but also human interactions, perceptions, ethics and expectations



Breaking Bones for Future Engineers

Our project demonstrates to High School students how actual engineers are working to find the most effective solutions to hip replacements in humans in medical applications.


Workarounds and Prototypes

Our goal was to demonstrate to people the importance, practicality, and relevance of workarounds and prototypes in both our daily lives and in a diverse range of industries.


Research That Takes Some Nerve

Ultrasound stimulation would be a lot less invasive and, as we already use ultrasound medically in procedures such as imaging, potentially safer and less intimidating for patients.


Novel Reading and Social Policy

Maybe the empathy we feel for the characters translates into real-life empathy. Perhaps reading a book can make us more informed and passionate citizens.
