[2020/01/10] Two Teams from NYMU School of Biomedical Engineering Have Won Prizes at the “2019 Biotechnology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition”

The “JR Jierui Team” won the gold medal

 

Members of the NYMU Department of Biomedical Engineering's “Biomedical Industry Innovation and Entrepreneurship Talent Cultivation Course” participated in the “Biomedical Industry Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition” held by the Ministry of Education this year and they won four prizes. A gold medal in the “Biomedical Industry Category” was rewarded to the “JR Jeirui” team, while the “iBreath” team won an excellent prize in the “Biomedical Industry Category,” for their team's idea showing the highest popularity and greatest potential.

 

The “Biomedical Industry Innovation and Entrepreneurship Talent Cultivation Course” is a project that has been promoted by the Ministry of Education since 2014 and trains graduates, PhD students and post graduate students who enter the competition. The course at NYMU is hosted by Director Wu of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, together with Professor Yang and Professor Tsai of the NYMU Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. NYMU has won fourteen awards over the years.

 

The “JR Jierui” team developed a project entitled “Farewell to Grey Nails (Onychomycosis), choose a clean Nail,” which involves a patch that helps to clean the skin by providing antibacterial functionality. Using a structure comprising a unique inner dual-effect treatment and an outer waterproof design, the patch is able to prevent the liver damage side effects associated with oral treatment and is also able to achieve the goal of treating Onychomycosis while at the same time creating a better appearance for an individual's nails.

 

The iBreath team, which won three awards, came together to receive the award

 

The “Smart Breathing Training Care Assistance System”, which was developed by the “iBreath” team, tackled the issue of postoperative breathing training for patients. This system allows patients to use their mobile phones to assess the status of their breathing training. Not only does the system record each training result, but also it provides voice guidance and feedback. It also has other functions such as providing timed reminders and online medical consultation. The various functions allow the user to feel as if there is a therapist always there to provide assistance. With all these functions available, the patient is able to actively and regularly train by himself after a surgical operation. In addition, it can also help family members to understand how to provide proper and correct care that can improve the prognosis of the patient after surgery. All of the above will reduce the risk of patients needing to use an oxygen/respirator machine for the rest of their life.

 

The team members said, “this training course not only has allowed us to understand the pulse of the biomedical industry, but it has also help us to learn the professional skills required when developing innovative biomedical technology. In addition, during the process of product development, our members from different backgrounds needed to work together and develop an excellent tacit understanding of each other as well as cooperation with each other. Each member was working towards the same goal and the process itself is a rare experience.”
