SELECTED PAST SLING TEAMS
Team Members: Caleb Gottlich, Ben Becker, Taylor Kenda, Alex Smith
We will create medical antibiotic cement molds for intraoperative utilization.
By streamlining the process of shaping cement with a specially-designed mold, the long-term impact of our product will optimize efficiency in the operating room, effectively allocate finite resources, and ultimately enhance care provided to the patient.
Team Members: Jasmin Rahesh, John Ciubuc, Rohan Anand, Ebrahim Payberah
Problem: How can we improve skin cancer diagnosis with a quicker, cheaper, and more simplified workflow
Current approach: Machine-learning to read and interpret 3D images of the skin, real-time, from a confocal microscope. The technology is there, but it takes about 6 months of dedicated training to use it. We want to use machine-learning to convert 6 months into 6 minutes.
Team Members: Adam Moore, Jacob Lambert, Maverick Weidman, James Bunch, Patrick Bettiol
Problem: How can we better deliver ultrasound technology without the need of the physical man power?
Current Approach: Multi-Use portable ultrasound, interfaced with an algorithm that can generate an image and produce rule out data for a diagnosis of interest and an image that may be sent to a radiologist. (Empirically, using Deep Vein Thrombosis as our model)
Team Members: Susan Sherali, Andrew Chen, Shivam Bhakta
Geri: Telemedicine App for the Elderly, is focused on creating a telemedicine platform with specific features that would allow the technologically challenged population, such as the elderly, to easily and efficiently interact with their physician online with little to no disruption. Certain features we hope to implement include a one-click login process for the patients, visual and audio enhancement options, and an intuitive, patient-friendly interface.
NASAL SEPTAL PERFORATION DEVICE
Team Members Callie Fort, Hannah Daniel, Claire Rahlfs, Luke Blackwell
Problem: Patients with nasal septal perforations report pain when using the current technology- a silicone nasal septal button. Current silicone nasal septal buttons result in crusting around the margin of the button. We would like to create a device with increased hydrophilicity that is more consistent with the natural nasal mucosa. We would also like to best approximate the pre-perforation nasal airflow.

Smellpoof creates categorical kits of medically relevant scents that will be sprayed during standardized patient encounters and simulation sessions to enhance the medical school curriculum.
