URI biomedical engineering students created projects as part of a cutting-edge class about a field that is revolutionizing the business market and healthcare industry: wearable technology.
Nine URI Science and Engineering Fellows presented their research projects in the form of posters at the Undergraduate Fellows Celebration on Dec. 12 at the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences (CBLS).
Using a 3-D printer, URI engineering students created prosthetic arms and hands for four Colombians who had lost limbs.
ThankGod (TG) Ugochukwu, who is studying biomedical engineering with an electrical track, was one of two URI students who did an internship at Fox Studios in Los Angeles this past summer. Ugochukwu worked under one of Fox’s head engineers.
Marjorie Pickard is the co-creator of a smart T-shirt that has the ability to detect improper lifting techniques and is so promising it won a top award at a recent startup contest. Sensors in the shirt measure movements of the spine and shoulders, then send feedback through a smartphone application.
Ten teams of students competed in a 48-hour design challenge called Health Hacks RI at the University of Rhode Island from Oct. 13-15. The URI team of Dylan Kennedy, James Gannon, Long Zou, Dylan Young and Graem Timmons captured third place and won $250.
Two University of Rhode Island students captured first and second place in the E-Textiles Hackathon Design Challenge at the IFAI (Industrial Fabrics Association International) Expo, held Sept. 26-29, in New Orleans, LA.
URI students recently demonstrated their research projects on neuro-technologies, including functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and electroencephalography (EEG), at the Neural Engineering Showcase.
A group of URI engineering students and their counterparts from an institution in Colombia, recently presented their prototypes for prosthetic arms and hands to be used by amputees in the South American nation. Each prosthetic limb will last an average of two to five years, and will be personalized to the needs of its user, both […]
