VeBall, A Computer Input Device for 3D Manipulation

University of Waterloo

BackgroundVirtual 3D manipulation of computer generated representations (e.g. in CAD software applications) or robotic control (e.g. surgical devices) is a challenging task in computer control environments that rely on standard input devices such as a keyboard, mouse, joystick, etc. Many such applications require the use of two input devices where less frequently activated functions are allocated to input from a device controlled by the user’s non-dominant hand. Unfortunately almost...

Rapid Optimization of Dose Distribution for Radiation Treatment (FIDO)

Western University

DescriptionFast Inverse Dose Optimization (FIDO) is an algorithm and associated software that does not rely on the current “trial and error” search to find the optimal radiation beam plan for a patient, but instead solves a single algebraic procedure directly. As a result, FIDO delivers an optimal treatment plan in seconds rather than the current standard of minutes to hours (e.g. the TomoTherapy Inc. system uses 32 computers to develop a treatment plan and it can still take...

Training and Skills Assessment System for Minimally Invasive Surgery

Western University

DescriptionA sensorized laparoscopic instrument and a software based tracking system has been designed and developed at The University of Western Ontario. This hand-held instrument has been designed to non-invasively measure the interaction of the instrument with tissue in the form of forces or torques acting in all five degrees of freedom (DOFs) available during MIS. Additional capabilities include the ability to capture instrument tip position and orientation in 6 DOFs. This allows the...

Visual Asset Management (VAM) Software

University of Waterloo

The VAM system offers several key novel differentiating capabilities from competitive tools. Firstly, VAM utilizes a small hand held computer tool to easily enter inspection data, including direct linking of electronic floor plans to photos taken from the site. This on-site data entry capability simplifies the data collection step and reduces the chances of data transcription errors associated with conventional paper based manual practices. The VAM system also utilizes a novel methodology to...

Low-Cost Portable Microfluidic System for Cell Migration Studies

University of Manitoba

Toward providing a full practical solution for performing microfluidic cell migration analysis in an integrated manner, the inventors have developed a prototype USB microscope-based Microfluidic Chemotaxis Analysis System ("UMCAS"). The UMCAS integrates a microfluidic device, gradient and cell imaging, temperature control, and real-time data analysis to provide a low cost and portable solution for rapid microfluidic cell migration and chemotaxis experiments. Furthermore, a smartphone-based...
