The NCIIA Recognizes Collegiate Biomedical Engineering Innovations
Date:6/4/2008

The National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) presents BMEidea Awards to three student teams with breakthrough discoveries for nerve injuries, premature babies and the delivery of local anesthetic

HADLEY, Mass., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the NCIIA presented awards to three collegiate biomedical engineering teams, recognizing their outstanding work in the field. The top winners in the Biomedical Engineering Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship Award (BMEidea) Competition -- a national competition celebrating student biomedical innovation -- were announced during the Medical Design Excellence Awards ceremony at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East trade show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.

The BMEidea Competition, now in its third year, is open to collegiate teams from NCIIA member institutions across the United States. "These student teams display an impressive level of creativity, drive and professionalism," said Phil Weilerstein, Executive Director of the NCIIA. "Their innovations show promise to change the future of healthcare, and we are thrilled to support them as they move forward."

The first prize -- a cash award of $10,000 -- was awarded to Rapid Suture from Stanford University. This team created a small, inexpensive device that allows for the quick, safe and easy closure of laparoscopic incision wounds after surgery. The device should make for easier suturing, leading to reduced procedure times, fewer surgical risks and faster patient recovery.

The second cash prize of $2,500 was given to the KMC ApneAlert team from Northwestern University. This team's device monitors the abdominal breathing movements of premature infants and sounds an alarm when the infant stops breathing. The apnea monitor should allow for better detection of apnea episodes, improving the success of the Kangaroo Mother Care program and reducing apnea-related deaths among premature infants in the developing wor
