NON-INVASIVEBLOOD GLUCOSE MEASUREMENT
NON-INVASIVE MEASUREMENT OF BLOOD GLUCOSE • Goal: to develop a device to non-invasively measure blood glucose levels and interface with GSM modem and Infusion pump to form a feedback drug-delivery system. • Current techniques involves pricking of finger - is invasive, painful and cumbersome. • Device Features: • Use of Infra-Red Light Emitting Diodes (LED) for non-invasive measurement • Interface with GSM to send alarm signal to doctor • Interface with Infusion Pump to form feedback drug delivery system.
NON-INVASIVE GLUCOSE SENSOR
INTERFACE WITH GSM AND INFUSION PUMP
PROCESS• Blood glucose level measured non-invasively in the finger.• Glucometer circuit detection (glucose level)• Given to PIC (acts as GSM) and a computer (doctor)• Received dialogue box displaying blood glucose level (along with patient’s data)• Dosage to restore normalcy by running infusion pump (motors)
ACADEMIC PROJECTSNEW JERSEY INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
BUILDING A ROBOT• Designed a wrist joint and built a 6DOF robot, conforming to Pieper’s Law using a MATLAB simulated toolbox – Simulink 3D.• This project demonstrates the definitions of positions & orientations of frames of references in terms of other frames of references using Transformation Matrixes .
ROBOT-ASSISTED SURGERY • Performed an automated surgery on a hot dog. • Used a MATLAB graphical toolbox to improve the graphical rendition of the robot model. • Robot is designed in order to easily compute its inverse kinematics and joint angles to achieve ideal and different positions and orientations • The Puma560 is used as reference.
TELEMANIPULATION• Wrote a MATLAB code to remotely control the robot with the help of ‘Flock of Birds’ – FOB.
BIO-MICRO-ELECTRO-MECHANICAL SYSTEMS (BIO-MEMS)
ANALYSIS OF MICRO-CANTILEVER • Resonant frequency, expected displacement, stresses and change in resonant frequency for a tip mass load was calculated using ANSYS and compared to theoretically obtained values. • Advantages: Higher sensitivity, low cost and analyte requirement and quicker response.Z component of Von Misses Stress Elastic Strain Modal Solutiondisplacement – top view
ANALYSIS OF MICRO-FLUIDIC CHANNEL• For channel and well configuration, relation between well dimensions, flow and velocity profile of liquid in the channel were analyzed and studied using ANSYS.• This can be helpful in diagnosing various conditions like anemia, where the viscosity of blood decreases due to decrease in packed cell volume.• Both single well and multi-well channels are taken into consideration.

PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS MEDICAL INSTRUMENTATION
EEG CIRCUIT TO DETECT Α AND Β WAVE ACTIVITY • Goal : Conceptually investigate and design an EEG circuit to monitor α and β wave activity using a bipolar configuration between O1 and O2 lead positions. • Design Features • Pre-amplifier circuit: to cure noise pick-up problem • Implementation of a differential amplifier • Usage of a band pass filter to effectively pass only α and β waves (8 – 30 Hz) • Inclusion on isolation amplifier for patient safety considerations
BLOCK DIAGRAM & REPRESENTATION
MEDICAL DEVICE DEVELOPMENT• Assembled a rudimentary Design History File (DHF) representing basic facets of medical device development. I was the Regulatory Affairs lead for my team. Key Role: Decide on regulatory pathway for a project proposal and write a regulatory rationale. Learnt about the 510(k) process and PMA.
REGULATORY AFFAIRS & VALIDATION • Conducted a URS survey and created a basic URS to qualify an environmental chamber. • Wrote IQ, OQ and PQ protocols for the environmental chamber • Wrote IQ, OQ, PQ test scripts for the environmental chamber • Performed a 21 CFR Part 11 quality audit – Risk Assessment, for a given vendor check list • Reviewed and presented various case studies on incidental company regulatory deviations and improving GLP, GCP and GMP compliance. • Acquired working knowledge of 21CFR 820, 200 and 300 series.
FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (FMRI)• Performed Statistical Parametric Mapping using SPM8 to determine levels of activations based on the intensity of voxels, on given images.• Basically analyzed data by removing various factors such as scanner noise, head motion and mapping anatomical to functional images. This is done in 3 stages: • Spatial Pre-processing • Model specification, Review and estimation • Inference• Also made use of MriCron to show activations according to Z-scores.

Pulse Oxymeter Designed a circuit to measure blood oxygenation by sensing infrared and red light absorption properties of deoxygenated and oxygenated Haemoglobin. Circuit designed using Transimpedance amplifiers, Operational Amplifiers, Photo diodes and LED’s. LED – to shine visible red and infrared light into the earlobe or finger. Photo diode amplifiers – for light-to- voltage conversion. Switched Integrators – to cancel out thermal noise from feedback resistors.
