Ion Endoluminal System

The Ion endoluminal system is a new robotic platform for minimally invasive biopsy deep in the peripheral lung. The system features an ultra-thin, human-controlled robotic catheter that allows physicians to navigate into hard-to-reach airways with unprecedented stability and precision. Unique to Ion is its innovative shape-sensing technology that measures the full shape of the catheter hundreds of times per second, providing precise location and shape information throughout the entire navigation and biopsy process.

AdaptDx Pro

The AdaptDx Pro is an automated dark adaptometer that offers the ophthalmic industry a wearable test device that benefit patients by early detection of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The wearable device is powered by a digital assistant named Theia which guides the testing and interacts with patients using voice prompts driven by artificial intelligence. A personalized testing environment is achieved with adjustable padded head straps and flexible eye cups that ensure a light-tight seal. Internally, a camera guided positioning system aligns optics for testing.

Argus

Argus is a living plant with nano sensors inside its leaves that continuously monitor water for heavy metal impurities. Nanometer scale chemical-based sensors are injected inside the leaves through pressure injection. These sensors produce a visible glow on the leaf of a plant. Argus, a bio-hybrid plant, naturally samples water in the environment and any impurities that come along with it. When lead impurities from the environment come in contact with these sensors, the florescence is quenched to indicate that there are impurities in the environment.

Kidney Assist Transporter

The main purpose of the project was to develop a system that offers oxygenated machine perfusion at all different timepoints in the organ donation pathway: during preconditioning, preservation and reconditioning. The design challenge was to make the product suitable for all these different situations. Sturdy and safe during transport. Logical and intuitive during installation and operation. Sterile. Sustainable. Special attention was paid to the design of the user experience, delivering feedback during the perfusion process. The iconic visual appearance ensures professional brand recognition.
