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.

"As of right now, an otoscope is traditionally used by physicians to
examine the ear, but that technology hasn’t really changed in over a
century and only looks at the surface of the ear drum.
For this reason PhotoniCare (created at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and now operating out of the EnterpriseWorks incubator) has developed a new handheld imaging tool, CLEARVIEW, which actually allows a physician to look through
the ear drum using optical coherence tomography to better identify the
characteristics of a middle ear infection. By identifying and treating
an infection quickly and more effectively, money can be saved for
providers and patient outcomes can be improved."
