There is an acute need for a low-cost and portable Hb1Ac monitor top screen and manage diabetes in the developing world. However, most standardized HbA1c monitors and expensive, bulky and assay based systems and thus not suited for mass adoption.
The team proposes to co-develop a low-cost mobile phone platform to measure HbA1c. Their novel platform comprises of two components- a colorimetric test strip for HbA1c and a software application that uses the phone's camera to analyze the test strip. Additionally, the software application can provide automated decision support and transmit data to remote specialists, thus enabling millions of field health workers to screen and manage diabetes in even the most remote communities.

Fecal incontinence, the inability to control the release of stool, is a ubiquitous clinical problem that affects more than 50 million patients globally. The absence of an adequate management solution for fecal incontinence leads to increased utilization of hospital resources and adversely impacts the mortality by 7%.
The team has developed a self-expanding device to manage fecal incontinence in non-ambulatory patients with a unique placement, deployment and withdrawal mechanism. The device requires minimal training and can be administered without the need for imaging and works on all patients, irrespective of their stool type or sphincter tone. The product offers a hygienic insertion mechanism and is overall very sanitary and patient friendly.
