UTARI’s Biomedical Technologies Division focuses on developing clinically relevant devices and systems that can be utilized by health care providers as well as patients to enhance diagnostics, treatment, rehabilitation, and assisted living.
Research in the Biomedical Technologies Division centers on the following broad areas: tissue regeneration and wound healing, diagnostics, drug delivery, assistive and preventive care, remote monitoring and telemedicine, rehabilitation, pandemic and bio-threat detection, and medical training and research systems. UTARI is able to work with partners on projects at any stage in order to transition basic research to prototypes to low volume production for clinical trials.
Currently, there are a few research projects in progress that are related to tissue regeneration and wound healing, rehabilitation, and assistive care. Even though each of these projects has a specific aim and outcome, these projects also generate some residual technological value and may lead to other useable products.
Within the next five years, UTARI will also start new projects in the following areas:
This area of research deals with technology that assists with the care of elderly and disabled patients, among other topics.
Projects like the Biomask, which helps heal facial burns, fall under this category.
This area’s focus is to enhance the performance of prosthetics and improve the patient’s control of them.
The different agencies, industry leaders, and academic institutions we’re working with.
