TRANSBLOOD ENDOSCOPE FOR REAL-TIME CARDIAC IMAGING

Designer [2017]

In collaboration with the UCLA Department of Bioengineering, researched multiple biomedical, instrument lens, optic illumination, and material parameters to design the UI and develop a 3D CAD model with Solidworks of a pediatric cardiac endoscope. The endoscope provides high resolution and real-time image capture capability with minimal invasiveness, critical for guidance during pediatric cardiac surgery. 

MOVEMENT ASSISTED SLEEVE

Designer [2016]

In collaboration with the UCLA California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI) and under the guidance of Principal Designer Coco Wang of ArtCenter College of Design, developed a 3D model of an arm assistive, training, and stabilization device for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. Based on research of bionic arm mechanical and material designs and MS arm mobility issues such as weakness, spasticity, and tremors.

WOUND DEBRIDEMENT DEVICE PROPOSAL

Researcher [2015]

In collaboration with Dr. Krogstad and Dr. Yang, of David Geffen School of Medicine, and the UCLA IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (EMBS), presented a research proposal for a new diabetic patient blade device to prevent the progression of commonly occurring diabetic calluses to severe ulcers. The blade device works by differentiating skin based on moisture and electrolyte content and by debriding callused skin, allowing the patient to prevent serious ulcer development without hospital interference.

DEVICE

METHODOLOGY

The device detects live vs. dead skin cells using the electromechanical mechanism of electrophoresis. The  device's material design leverages fiber technology, based on existing wound debridement methods.

MECHANISM

(a) After 30 seconds, live cells (green) are seen being trapped (due to a positive Dielectrophoresis (DEP) force), while dead cells (red) pass by the trapping area. (b) Depicts the result when the power supply is turned off for comparison
