See all the winning entries and meet the amazing inventors of the microMedic 2013 National Contest.

  • Shiva with his winning prosthetic hand project.

    The Arduino Prosthesis is a low cost Prosthetic, a Brain Control Interface (BCI) device that can be fitted on to amputees’ limbs. Mind-Waves – or more precisely the ability of the mind to focus and to concentrate – controls the Prosthetic.

  • Triage Training System creator David Dorhout and friend Michah holding the "Acting Coach" and "Director's Tablet.".

    The Triage Training System (TTS) provides a simple, mobile way to dynamically manage large groups of “victims” in a mass injury simulation by providing individual instructions on how each “victim” should act based on their unique injury. The TTS also simulates life signs such as a pulse.

  • Cardiac Simulator Closed

    By day, I am a cardiovascular surgery nurse and by night I am an electronics learner and tinkerer.  I decided to combine both of my loves into one project – a cardiac simulator.  It is my hope that it will become a good resource for both healthcare givers as well as patients.  Healthcare givers can use the cardiac simulator as an

  • Roger with his SMERTBike apparatus.

    My entry for the Parallax MicroMedic contest is a device which I call the SMERTbike. SMERT is an acronym for Smart Medical Exercise machine for use in Rehabilitation and Therapy.  The SMERTbike is designed as the internal electronics of a smart stationary bike.

  • VTD (Valsalva Test Device) team member

    Heart failure is a serious medical condition affecting about 6 million Americans, including adults and children. Although there is currently no cure, early diagnosis can help people live longer, more active lives through medicine and lifestyle changes.

  • The KinoCOM Team

    The KinoCOM Team: Ravi Chacko, Kendall Gretsch, Sophie Jacobson, Stephen Linderman, Inema Orukari, Will Padovano, Joshua Siegel, and Avik Som

  • Maya with her Arduino-based Foot Neuropathy Analyzer

    Diabetes is one of the major causes of premature illness and death worldwide. Diabetes brings with it neurovascular complications, which result in the development of high pressure areas in the feet and hands.

  • Pulmonary Capacity Analyzer system.

    The Pulmonary Capacity Analyzer is intended to measure a user's lung capacity. By measuring the velocity of air moving through a breathing device, the microcontroller can calculate the volume of air that was moved during the time of inhalation.

  • Internal workings of the Triabot.

    The Triabot is based upon an Arduino Mega 256k development system with a Parallax Shield. It is capable of transmitting any patient’s vitals, through an Xbee transmitter using a Parallax SIP adapter, to a base station personal computer up to 15 miles away.

  • Grip test device in progress.

    Our project entry is an inexpensive device used to conduct a quick neurological field assessment of a subject who may have sustained a brain injury.

  • The completed P.I.L. Box (Propeller Based Internet Logging) project.

    For my microMedic 2013 Contest project I created the "Propeller Based Internet Logging Pill Dispenser" or simply "the P.I.L.

  • Using soniCane.

    In the USA Network drama series “Covert Affairs,” Christopher Gorman plays August Anderson, an ex-Army officer blinded while on a mission in Iraq.

  • Circuitry for tracking.

    The low cost global health simulator project was started as an undergraduate research project under the leadership of Zach Meier and Robin Waltz at the University of Minnesota.

  • Arduino circuit.

    Webz of War is a cooperative two player exergame utilizing a Microsoft Kinect, two Nintendo Wii Balance Boards, two microMedic heart rate monitors (one from the kit, one special ordered), and a controller PC.

  • Eagle Mountain Homeschool Co-op Team

    Our project helps people with asthma to avoid having asthma attacks. It does this by monitoring breath pressure and alerting the user if the pressure exceeds a preset point, customized to that user’s lung capacity. Sometimes people with asthma don’t realize that an asthma attack is coming.

  • Computer view of the mDocInTheBox.

    This project is very helpful for learning about the Arduino UNO board and Android app development. The Parallax BOE (Board of Education) is used with an Arduino UNO board.
