M-PED provided connections to resources in regulatory investigation and intellectual property (including patent searches) that were critical to the development of the Charpie Pediatric Intubation System. The Gap Funding Award is helping me turn the conceptual design into a functional prototype in a collaboration with a local medical device firm.

Researchers at the University of Texas El Paso, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon, have developed an internal device for lengthening bones in children. Traditional external techniques are potentially damaging to the growth plates, which are not suitable for young children still in development. This new technique will mitigate this risk, as well as decrease infection and pain associated with the procedure.
