Determining Urinary Calculi Composition
BackgroundAccurate determination of urinary stone composition has significant bearing on understanding pathophysiology, choosing treatment modalities and preventing recurrence. Several modalities to determine stone composition exist (e.g., chemical analysis, X-ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy); however, all of these methods require direct ...

Dual Purpose Upper and Lower Limb Rehabilitation Robot
BackgroundThere are 800,000 new cases of stroke in the United States and Canada each year. In cases of stroke, it is common for the upper and lower limbs to become weakened or paralyzed. Robotic rehabilitation systems have been developed to assist in the delivery of movement therapy to both the upper or lower extremities to maximize return of funct...
An Ultrasound Imaging Platform for Maintaining Resolution in High Frame Rate Doppler Imaging Applications
A new method for pulsed Doppler ultrasound that eliminates the compromise between image quality and frame rate.BackgroundPulsed Doppler ultrasound systems can be used to determine blood flow or the motion of tissues by measuring the shift in frequency of the reflected signal relative to the transmitted pulse. Measuring this Doppler shift can yield ...
Diagnosis of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
BackgroundBacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal condition, affecting an estimated 30% of women at any given time. While many women remain asymptomatic, when signs and symptoms do arise they include an elevated vaginal pH>4.5, discharge, and malodour due to amines. BV is also associated with a number of co-morbidities, including inc...
A novel system to modulate the composition of the microbiome
TitleA novel system to modulate the composition of the microbiomeSummaryA robust state-of-the-art method to manipulate the microbiome. BackgroundMicrobial ecosystems are essential for human health and proper development, and disturbances of the ecosystem correlate with a multitude of diseases. A central problem is the lack of tools to selectively c...
Smart Tempcap
Background A number of biomechanical and biological factors contribute to the success of dental implants. Although many factors influence osseointegration, implant design is particularly important in determining the success of an implant. Researchers at Western University have developed a novel abutment, combining a healing cap/cover screw and prov...
Biomarker Profile to Predict Post-Traumatic Distress and Chronic Pain
Summary A robust three protein-based biomarker panel blood test to predict chronic pain and categorize individuals into three recovery trajectories BackgroundPain and distress are difficult to quantify. Outcomes for acute musculoskeletal injuries (trauma) are currently suboptimal with an estimated 10-50% of injured individuals reporting persistent ...
Multidimensional Pain Measurement Application Tool
Multidimensional Pain Measurement Application ToolSummaryRobust and Innovative Aid in the Clinical Management of people with chronic pain by applying new assessment to the way pain is measuredBackgroundPain and distress are difficult to quantify common to almost all illnesses, and according to the National Institute of Health (NIH), affects more in...
Angler - An Epilepsy monitoring system
BackgroundProper seizure detection and monitoring tools are one of the unmet needs in the epilepsy community. Annually 3 million cases of epilepsy are reported in North America, 1/3 of which are uncontrolled seizures. Currently, video EEG is utilized in monitoring patients. They are limited to use within the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) of the ho...
Time-resolved dynamic angiographic computed tomography (TRD-ACT)
BackgroundThe clinical gold standard for assessing the functional significance of a coronary artery stenosis is the invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) technique, in which a specialized catheter is advanced to the culprit artery with aids of fluoroscopy to measure the flow pressure gradient across a plaque during maximal hyperemia. Recently, non...
