Sleep Apnea Detection System
Technology Overview OHSU has developed a non-obtrusive system to monitor and diagnose sleep apnea and hypopnea through the use of load cells installed in the supports of a patient’s bed. The load cells continuously and independently measure the weight supported by each leg of the bed, and are sensitive enough to pick up small fluctuations in weight...

Forward scanning vitrectomy OCT microprobe
SummaryThe practical employment of OCT probes in surgeries of solid organs or internal cavities has been limited by the lack of miniature forward-scanning probes. Dr. David Huang and colleagues have developed a small forward-scanning OCT vitrectomy probe that would allow for the incorporation of OCT into probe-guided procedures for a variety of organs.Technology...

Visual Field Simulation Using OCT and OCT Angiography
Summary Preventing glaucoma disease progression requires regular monitoring and timely treatment. However, current assessment of visual field loss is subjective and can be unreliable for monitoring small progressive vision loss. Accordingly, Dr. David Huang et al. developed an OCTA test that produces simulated visual fields. The test provides a more...

"Tooth on a chip"- A microfluidic device to test interactions of biomaterials with dental structures
SummaryThe development of novel dental biomaterials requires in vitro validation and cytotoxicity studies; however, research platforms that accurately emulate the oral environment, the interface between biomaterials with the tooth, and the underlying dental pulp, do not currently exist. This is traditionally done by exposing plated cells to eluents...
