New technique could increase success rate, life span of implantable devices

Hyowon Lee, an assistant professor in Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, holds up a smart self-clearing catheter in the form of microscale devices on a paper-thin film that can be assembled into existing catheters. The device could provide a reliable alternative to conventional high-failure devices that require additional surgery to remove.

Military-funded prosthetic technologies benefit more than just veterans

A high-tech prosthesis for a child draws on decades of research. Credit: Mark Geil, CC BY-ND In 1905, an Ohio farmer survived a railroad accident that cost him both of his legs. Two years later, he founded the Ohio Willow Wood company, using the namesake timber to hand-carve prosthetic limbs. The company grew, surviving the Great Depression and a fire that destroyed the plant, and still thrives today in rural Ohio. Few who work there now might remember the curious…

Eye protection in Cuba lab photos

Posted By Jyllian Kemsley on May 23, 2017 in Featured, Personal Protective Equipment, Safety Culture | Cuban chemistry students, who have limited access to safety gear, work on an educational lab at the University of Havana. Credit: Lisette Poole In a recent cover story about chemistry research in Cuba, C&EN included several photos in which people were not wearing appropriate personal protective equipment–eye protection in particular–in labs. The photos garnered several critical comments, such as: Please, please,…

How far can your shoes run?

“Our goal is to find out how to elicit a better design, to create a product that interacts better with the people who wear it.”. Credit: Deakin University Research data on the durability of running shoes challenges a common assumption. Recreational and elite runners should take note: results of a collaborative study from Deakin University’s School of Engineering and School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences suggest that running shoes don’t degrade as much as we might have thought. Dr…

Sensing insole for footstrike pattern detection in runners

3-D design of the sensing insole (above) and the interface of the smartphone app. Credit: PolyU Researchers at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) have developed a mobile biofeedback device for footstrike pattern modification for injury prevention and rehabilitation in runners. The annual injury risk for regular runners is up to 80%. It is largely related to how runner‘s foot hits the ground. Emerging evidence suggests that heel or forefoot strike may result in injuries such as stress fractures or…

Fall 2013 Unit Ops and Process Control registration

Many seniors plan to take these classes in their final year.  The prerequisite for both classes is CHBE 3210 Transport II, and you can take them concurrently with ChBE 3225 Separations and/or CHBE 4300 Kinetics.  Since both of these classes are labs, we usually recommend taking them in two separate semesters when possible.  You need to sign up for both the lecture and lab sections of this class when seats are open.  However, many of the sections are filled following…
