May 15, 2015

BME undergrads design low-cost spirometerA low-cost, deskilled spirometer, invented by BME undergraduates, offers hope to patients struggling with respiratory illnesses in low-resource areas. SpiroSense was one of nearly two dozen medical innovations created by students for this year’s Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Design Day, held May 5 at the East Baltimore campus. More than 140 undergraduate and graduate students participated in the challenge, which is divided into health innovations intended for use in the United States and those — like SpiroSense — designed for use in the developing world.
