Hydration plays an important role in maintaining the metabolism, enzyme activity, mechanical properties, appearance and barrier function of the skin.
Singapore has a tropical climate that prevails throughout the year. Battling with the constant switch between high humidity, hot outdoor weather and dry in-door cold air-conditioning environment decreases the skin response to external changes. Hence, decreases the hydration level in skin attributing to the overall skin barrier recovery to delay, and premature aging. In our research work, a formula of moisture cream is developed.
i-VISION and vehicle licence-plate recognition
i-VISION is an application that sits on a surveillance system of CCTV cameras and Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and gives it ‘intelligence’ by monitoring actively within the entire camera view. It transforms ordinary passive system into an active one.
Middleware for Co-bot and Machines Integration
With Industry 4.0 bringing sweeping changes across industries, the integration of disparate components and existing machines have become critical due to the presence of proprietary legacy systems. This invention offers an intermediary communication for the different standalone machines to communicate and perform synchronised functions. In particular, this middleware was developed to integrate robotic and automation elements allowing different machines to communicate through the middleware console.
EMI Shielding Paint
The invention is the preparation of an electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding paint. When coated on the interior and exterior surfaces of non-metallic small articles or large installation enclosures, it provides EMI protection. The paint developed is environmentally friendly, chemically stable, light weight and good corrosion resistance.
Nano Glass Coating for Energy Saving Applications
The invention is a nano glass coating which can be applied directly onto glass panels, and can be used on glass surfaces with complex shapes. The coating is able to reject more than 90% of Ultraviolet radiation and Infra-Red radiation above 1400nm wavelength while allowing the transmission of at least 60% of the visible light to be transmitted through. This allows the reduction of the total solar energy transmission by more than 50% as compared to untreated clear glass, and an additional 8% reduction when compared to commercially available solar films.
Rapid Diagnosis of Dengue Infections
We have developed a platform technology using Carbon Nanotube (CNTs)–based labels as a POC diagnostic tool for dengue infections. Since their discovery, CNTs have been of great interest for a wide range of applications, including diagnostics. This approach has good potential as a platform technology for rapid, sensitive and low-cost POC diagnosis of infectious diseases.
Chafing is skin irritation that occurs where skin rubs against skin, clothing, shoes, or other materials. Chafing sometimes refers to red, sore skin that has been irritated by something rubbing against it. Our special formula creates a smooth velvet surface for protection purpose and effective in preventing the chafing problem. For existing condition, it would also temporarily lessen the irritation. Anti-chafing cream is available in cream formulas. Ideal for use every day.
Handheld Solid Dispenser Using a Motor-Driven Auger
This portable solid dispenser (Fig 1) will help facilitate solid materials weighing. It makes use of a motor-driven auger for solid dispensing with a consistency of more than 97%.The ergonomic design of our prototype allows users to avoid contamination and …..
A Tremor Compensation Device
This invention relates to a handheld or portable device that can compensate for involuntary hand tremor. The device will 1) detect its own motion, 2) distinguish between the intended motion and the tremor, and 3) compensate for the tremor of the tip of the tool (such as a soldering iron, and a writing utensil) attached to the hand-held device. It allows a user with involuntary hand tremor to engage in such as writing, drawing and soldering.
Active-assisted Arm Brace
This invention relates to a device that is designed to assist with upper limb rehabilitation, and allows the clinician to diagnose and make objective assessment on the rehabilitation progress. The device utilizes biofeedback and intelligent controls to help patients undergo both assisted and passive muscle stretching, and allows clinicians to make objective assessment of each therapy session by providing real-time diagnostic information. The invention has potential to be adapted for home-based upper limb rehabilitation usage.
