Robotic System for Wrist Assessment and Rehabilitation System

University of Minnesota Technology Overview A new robotic system for wrist joint proprioception provides both assessment of function and rehabilitation training all in the same device. The device not only measures a user’s ability to sense wrist position and detect various degrees of movement, but also provides discrete and continuous motion rehabilitation training exercises that […]

Adaptive, Retro-Directive Phased Array Antenna

University of Waterloo Background In order to enable higher data rates to a larger number of users, adaptive antennas are being used in various wireless communication systems. Such antennas constantly re-shape their radiation pattern to suppress the negative effects of the wireless channel impairments (interference and angular spread) which in turn will lead to a […]

LED Driver Circuit with Threshold Voltage Compensation

University of Waterloo Background The implementation of Thin-film Transistors (TFTs) in active-matrix liquid crystal and organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays has created a $100B flat-panel display market. For AMOLED, a simple 2-TFT pixel circuit does not operate with sufficient electrical stability to maintain a constant OLED drive current that results in poor pixel uniformity across […]

Circuit, System and Method for Thin-film Transistor Logic Gates

University of Waterloo Background Thin-film transistors (TFT) are widely used in large-area electronics, such as flat-panel displays and medical imagers. Owing to being a low-cost, simpler technology, only simple circuits can be fabricated in a typical TFT process. Some attempts by others have been made to realize digital logic circuits in a TFT process for […]

A Yeast Model for ALS and Distal Myopathy-2 Therapeutics

Western University Background Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a heterogeneous neurodegenerative disease caused by loss of the upper motor neurons, i.e. neurons that extend from the cortex to the brain stem and the spinal cord, and lower motor neurons, i.e. neurons that connect the brainstem or spinal cord to muscle (Hardiman et al. 2017). Progressive […]

Simplified Trusted Nodes for Quantum Key Distribution (QKD)

University of Waterloo Background Trusted repeater networks for Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) are a collection of trusted nodes that are linked up by point-to-point connections (). These types of networks have been set up in several independent settings. They aim at providing secret key to distant users (A and B) that are linked each to […]
