A Device and Algorithm for the Quantitative Measurement of Spasticity, Rigidity, and Muscle Strength

Dr. Hsiao-Wecksler from the University of IL has developed a method to evaluate muscle tone and joint movement through wearable hardware that quantifies muscle tone and...

System and Method for High Volume-Rate Three-Dimensional Ultrasound Imaging

Dr. Pengfei Song from the University of Illinois and his collaborators at the Texas A&M University developed a novel high volume-rate 3D ultrasound imaging method and a device based on Fast...

Dr. Pengfei Song from the University of Illinois and his collaborators at the Texas A&M University developed a novel high volume-rate 3D ultrasound imaging method and a device based on Fast Acoustic Steering via Tilting Electromechanical Reflectors (FASTER).  This technology addresses challenges of conventional 3D ultrasound imaging like high cost and low volume scan rate. FASTER is capable of high volume rate (up to 500 Hz) large field-of-view 3D imaging with conventional 1D transducers.

Real-Time Super-Resolution Ultrasound Microvessel Imaging

Dr. Pengfei Song has developed methods of real-time SR-UMI. Current SR-UMI requires hours of data post-processing, making it impractical for clinical, diagnostic...

Rapid detection of intact viruses

Professor Yi Lu from the University of Illinois has developed an aptamer-based method for virus detection that is able to distinguish infective viruses from non-infective...

Rapid detection of target DNA using gFET and LAMP

Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed a highly sensitive, graphene field effect transistor (gFET) that can detect DNA in samples. This technology uses...
