Recent Innovations: Next-Level Technologies that have Impacted our Society
Artemis Ultrasound Eye Scanner
This digital eye scanner provides advanced cross-sectional images of the cornea and anterior segments. It is used for diagnostic and post-surgical assessment. While collaborating with Cornell University, they developed this technology into a marketable product. It has extensive human factors, software design and infrastructural design. Many highly successful prototypes are used worldwide today!
AVID Certification Phantom IMRT
This technology stands for Advanced Verification of Integrated Dose. It enables verification of radiation treatment plans. It allows a comprehensive range of IMRT measurements (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy). The design and one patent application was submitted for this invention. This innovation was completed for MDX Medical, a Canadian Medical Clinic.
Revolutionary Breath Test Technology: Gemelli trio-smart
STARFish Technology has collaborated with other companies Gemelli Biotechnology professionals: “ With this type of disease category, we read out levels of gasses that are associated with symptoms and then a patient such as Cedars and Gemelli to bring to the diagnostic market this revolutionary tool. As stated bykes either a therapeutic or dietary intervention of some sort. To learn how they’re doing with the treatment, they assess themselves through a doctor’s order using our instrument.”
StarFish Medical’s Toronto Office
StarFish Medical Toronto is an FDA registered manufacturing facility for microfluidics and bio services team that embodies a drive for engineering, design specialty, and management transparency. WIth an aim to develop new products and designs to continue to plentify opportunities, they work with many post-secondary institutions to engage employees in their careers in an inclusive and interactive environment. Eastern region events are held where StarFish Medical speaks about device development at industry events such as the University of Water;pp JFES Career Trajectories, University of Philippines: AI and Nanotechnology Applications, and University of Ottawa’s Biomedical Engineering Conference.
