BMEStart Competition Winners Announced
Date:9/29/2010

HADLEY, Mass., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The NCIIA announced this month the winners of the inaugural BMEStart competition, recognizing undergraduate excellence in biomedical innovation.

First place and a $10,000 grant for further product development was awarded to North Carolina State University for the HydrEYE CorneOasis Contact Lens, an inexpensive solution for patients who have lost control over eyelid function due to traumatic brain injury.  In place of current treatment methods, comprised of a makeshift eye patch of Saran Wrap and Vaseline, this lens will help keep eyes hydrated over an extended period of time while also preventing infection.

Coming in second, with a grant of $5,000, went to Columbia University for Procar: A Trocar Worth Trusting. In an effort to decrease malpractice injury claims associated with use of the trocar surgical device in making incisions for laparoscopic procedures, Procar is an advanced trocar designed with a quantitative force-feedback system that will provide tissue layer differentiation and instantaneous notification of intraperitoneal access to prevent over-insertion through abdominal wall—which can inadvertently cause injury to underlying anatomy.

Tied for third place and each awarded a $2,500 grant, NCIIA recognized Purdue University for the Handheld Plasma Isolation Device, which is able to effectively separate plasma from a white blood sample in approximately two minutes without the aid of a power source; and Tulane University for Malaria Retinopathy Automated Detection, which uses a multi-color LED array to more easily detect retina disorders often associated with cerebral malaria.

"We are impressed with all the solutions generated by our participating undergraduate student teams in this first-ever BMEStart competition," said Phil Weilerstein, Executive Director of the NCIIA.  "We applaud the winning teams and look forward to continue to support them as they further develop the
