Monday Morning Medical is developing a test strip that analyzes biomarkers for wound healing in an effort to provide concrete evidence of wound progression to the clinician. The test strip uses ELISA technology to analyze the concentration of MMP-2, a biomarker that increases to a a concentration of 0.22 µg/mL and then decreases in a wound that is healing normally. This solution will help clinicians determine when to remove surgical drains in order to limit infection and seroma of the wound.

Squish Labs is creating an implantable chemotherapeutic-infused hydrogel to treat residual tumor cells that cause recurrence in glioblastoma patients following tumor resection. Glioblastoma is the deadliest brain cancer and remains incurable, in part due to the challenge of achieving maximal resection. Additionally, many drugs cannot target the tumor effectively because of the selectivity of the blood-brain barrier. Gliadel is a carmustine wafer implant designed for post-resection treatment, but it failed to demonstrate sufficient efficacy for the FDA to approve it as a supplemental new drug. This device will address the shortcomings of Gliadel by sustaining therapeutic levels of drug in the resection cavity over several weeks.

Of the 320,000 cases of colectomy, a common colon reattachment surgical procedure to treat colon cancer performed yearly, about 18% leak following the surgery, causing life-threatening complications and repeat procedures with high mortality rates. The onset of these post-operative anastomotic leaks (AL) is still unknown; visible symptoms are often detected 5 to 7 days after surgery, but leaks may occur earlier. EnteroFlux proposes a continuous optical sensing system that notifies healthcare providers of an AL as early as 12 hours after the surgery while being noninvasive. Our device minimizes the likelihood of complications and improves patient outcomes.

WolfTronics is developing the Flow Defender, an electromechanical device to target the unmet medical need in the oxygen tank industry. Currently, oxygen tanks are set to a single physician-prescribed dosage which dosen't account for changes in patient metabolic state, which increases risk of hypoxia/oxygen poisoning. Our device takes input from pulse oximetry to adjust oxygen flow relative to the prescribed rate depending on respiratory state. This novel solution will improve the current process of oxygen delivery.

Accurate SpO2 levels are critical in monitoring infants' health, especially in infants with congenital heart defects or SIDS, who are underweight or premature. These situations can result in blood-oxygen levels decreasing, potentially causing cell death. PAW’s novel pediatric pulse oximeter is intended to be used at home to measure blood oxygen saturation levels in infants. The measurements will be taken over time from the forehead with electrical components housed in a beanie. The device will alarm if the infant’s SpO2 levels are abnormal. As PAW will go through the FDA approval process, our device will be considered a medical device.

HMS Medical is developing a long range, wireless alert system to notify caregivers of critical life threats for at-home pediatric tracheostomy ventilator-dependent patients. The in-line pressure and flow sensors connect to the central hub, which continuously monitors the patient to detect life threats, such as accidental decannulation and obstruction. Upon detection, the hub sends wireless signals, via radio frequency, to a peripheral device that provides auditory, visual, and tactile modes of notification to promptly alert the caregiver. This product will provide primary caregivers flexibility away from the patient and improve intervention times in order to rapidly respond to life threats.

Crescendo Technologies is committed to enhancing music perception for bilateral hearing-aid users with age-related hearing loss. While hearing aids can amplify high frequencies lost due to hair cell death in the basal end of the cochlea, they are designed for speech inputs and do not address worsened music perception. Our novel device uses a combination of signal processing and multisensory interaction to deliver rhythmic vibrations on the hearing-aid user's skin. This solution will lead to better music perception, measured by the Clinical Assessment of Music Perception (CAMP) test, and will improve quality of life as a result.

GoldiFlex is a team united over a shared interest in biomechanics, specifically in the development of products that can more actively prevent and reduce the impact of sports related injuries. We quickly discovered a large gap in the current market for ankle support devices during the recovery process. We have decided to address the need of providing adjustable support and flexibility at the ankle within proper physiological range of motion while conversely providing highly rigid support outside of these ranges for athletes that have sustained an ankle sprain in order to reduce the risk of reinjury.

CE Solutions has created a prototypic device to address issues in adipose tissue closures. Adipose tissue closures are often hard to administer, skipped entirely or ruptured after fact. Our device, the Taurus, allows surgeons to administer a closure with a more rigid diameter than a traditional stitch. This allows the tissue to be more securely placed, while the slippery nature of the tissue causes it to fall out of stitches often. The Taurus is also designed to be more efficient, in both time and effort. It only requires one hand to engage and takes one fluid movement to administer the closure. This novel device will contribute to more successful adipose tissue closures to support healing and efficiency.
