Motion control for the University of Liverpool’s ‘bedside’ diagnostic instrument for sepsis

Motion control for the University of Liverpool’s ‘bedside’ diagnostic instrument for sepsis
Mclennan has been working with scientists and researchers at the University of Liverpool over the past two years to help develop a portable prototype diagnostic instrument that will perform a straightforward, quick, and robust test for detecting sepsis in patients from a small sample of blood. Sepsis is a bacterial infection of the blood, causing potentially fatal whole-body inflammation that injures tissue and organs. The condition may be overcome if treated early with antibiotics and intravenous fluids, but current tests can take up to two days to identify the condition, by which time a treatment regime can be ineffective. Scientists at the University have a successful method of detecting the infection at its early stages and are translating this test into a point-of-care device for improved ease and speed of diagnosis.

Detecting pilot hypoxia in-flight & in real-time

Detecting pilot hypoxia in-flight & in real-time
United States researchers, led by the Air Force Research Laboratory, 711th  Human Performance Wing, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, replicated a fairly standard ‘hypoxic’ event. Volunteers were exposed to 5 minutes of reduced oxygen levels to simulate higher altitudes, followed by 5 minutes at 100% oxygen ‘recovery’. This is a typical response protocol to in-flight hypoxia.

Programmable Bluetooth module aids medical applications

Programmable Bluetooth module aids medical applications
The CYBLE-022001-00 EZ-BLE PRoC Module from Cypress Semiconductor is now in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics. The programmable, SMT-ready, fully certified Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module eliminates RF hardware design and reduces investment by eliminating the certification process. The integration and small footprint of the CYBLE-022001-00 make it ideal for medical, home entertainment, and computing applications.
