Whether we’re revolutionising the medical landscape with wearable monitoring technology or voyages into the ‘nanoverse’, or working with top sporting bodies in pursuit of the perfect cycling position – our engineering researchers are busy solving the problems and riddles of our times and helping to write our future .
A collaboration between Monash University and Haemokinesis Pty Ltd has resulted in a momentous breakthrough in world health. The creation of a novel category of low cost paper diagnostics that can identify a person’s blood group in just one minute the innovation is named Group Legible Immunohematology Format (GLIF).
A new type of graphene-based filter could be the key to managing the global water crisis, a study has revealed. The new graphene filter, which has been developed by Monash University and the University of Kentucky, allows water and other liquids to be filtered nine times faster than the current leading commercial filter.
Methods for measuring blood pressure have varied only slightly in the last 100 years, but researchers at Monash University are set to revolutionise the medical monitoring landscape. Known as cuffless blood pressure estimation, this innovative new device requires only a few small sensors to be placed on the body to measure blood pressure, rather than the inflating ‘cuff’ many of us are familiar with.
