Optimizing Mathematical Programs using Peer-to-Peer Networks

University of Waterloo

Description and applicationWould you like to harness the exponential computational power of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks to solve demanding mathematical optimization problems, but are concerned about security? This innovation delivers the speed and scalability of P2P networks while not disseminating any executable files. It also disguises all processes from participants. It harnesses the computational power of P2P networks to process Integer Linear Programs (ILPs).ILPs are complex...

Global Ratings of Change Questionnaire (GRCQ)

McMaster University

The GRC is a validated questionnaire consisting of 10 questions that provides a global measure to confirm, interpret and generalize findings of a health related quality of life (HRQOL) instruments or outcomes. It has 3 items that assess the overall effect according to whether a patient experienced any change in activity limitation, symptoms, or feelings since the treatment started using a 7-point scale. The GRC has been used to establish the clinically minimal important difference in...

Coral Review Medical Imaging Peer Review System

University Health Network

Software which enables efficient facilitation of a peer review program for diagnostic reports and images, as part of continuous quality assurance and quality improvement In a typical hospital or medical imaging clinic, hundreds of thousands of imaging scans (i.e. CT, MRI, X-ray, Ultrasound, etc.) are conducted on patients. These images are then viewed and diagnosed by a physician trained in detecting and diagnosing any abnormalities. In most hospitals however, there are few or no effective...

V2X Vehicular Communications System

University of Waterloo

BackgroundRoad accidents represent a serious social problem and a leading cause of people death and disability in many countries. More than 93 people have been killed each day on average on the U.S. roads in 2010, plus an amount of $871 Billion of economic and societal impact on U.S. citizens due to vehicle crashes. Hence, we develop novel wireless solutions to enhance road safety by reliably and timely exchanging safety messages among vehicles. Each safety message carries vehicle status...

Mobile App for Motivation Deficits in Schizophrenia

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our scientists have developed a mobile app to objectively assess and encourage motivated behaviour, specifically goal-directed activity, which involves setting and completing plans and goals. The app allows for geo-location sensing that captures real-world behaviour and is connected to a reminder system that prompts the individual to pursue their goals. This app is geared primarily towards schizophrenia patients, as pronounced motivation deficits hinder many individuals with this illness....

Obesity Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (OASIS)

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in obesity, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to overweight or...

Blood Pressure Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (BASIS)

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in hypertension, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to blood pressure...

EEG BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE PLATFORM AND PROCESS FOR DETECTION OF CHANGES TO MENTAL STATE

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

A system for a brain-computer interface (BCI) is provided. The system comprises an output unit configured to trigger a series of mental tasks for the patient, a device having a plurality of electrodes to continuously capture real-time raw electroencephalography (EEG) data from a patient, a server, and a display device to display and update an interface with visual elements based on issued control commands from the server. The server has an acquisition unit configured to receive the electrode...
