If you can't prevent a disease, the next best thing you can do to protect your health is to detect the symptoms of a disease early on. Build-up of excess fluids in body tissues (edema) is one of the major signs of heart failure. This early sign of heart failure can easily be detected by monitoring the amount of swelling in a patient's leg. Constant monitoring of the swelling of various limbs can provide medical professionals with key information for proper diagnosis. Vedo Medico's Edema Measurement System (EMS) provides a non-invasive and accurate measurement of edema in the patient's limbs.The Edema Measurement System is designed with the user in mind. EMS presents users with reliable information through an easy to use interface. The EMS is composed of four main components: EMS Inflation Unit (IU), EMS Enclosure System (ES), EMS Control Unit (CU) and PC Diagnostic System.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
