Please register and attend. I am also hoping to recruit a few students from BME to be present in the labs to talk to the visitors. I have been told that several Medical Technology companies were invited to attend this event so it may have implications for future opportunities.

For those of you engaged in various projects, there is also a possibility to showcase your work. Please talk to me if you are interested.

Team Bike Raptor is a collaboration project between LTU and University of Detroit-Mercy (UDM) and the group is comprised of three students each from Biomedical Engineering students (LTU), Mechanical Engineering and  Nursing (UDM). The goal is to design and fabricate a working device for our client who was in an automobile accident and sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) that left him with incomplete quadriplegia. The client has made some recovery and he has recovered some of the movement in his arms. It was determined that a custom exercise device will aid in his rehabilitation. The machine, Bike-Raptor, targets strengthening of muscles and increasing range of motion. The design allows the client to push on pedal-like handles attached to a wheel with magnetic resistance mechanism. It is our hope that this machine will improve his rehabilitation efforts so he can gain independence at a faster pace than without this type of exercise.
