Ipherio Case Study Game Engine
Background:Case studies are an important learning tool for training in a number of sectors, professions and industries, but there are often limitations in case study implementation. In collaboration with researchers at Western University, WORLDiscoveries conceptualized the Ipherio online game engine to deliver case studies through a game based appr...
Circles of Care Interactive Educational Game
Background:Case studies are an important learning tool for training health and social care practitioners, but there are often limitations in case study implementation. Dr. Carole Orchard and the Interprofessional Health Education and Research (IPHER) team at Western University conceptualized Circles of Care to address gaps in existing applications ...
The Ling-6(HL) Test
Buy now:The CD is available for purchase - $50 per copy BUY NOWBackground:Amplification in the form of well-fitted hearing aids is an important habilitation tool for listeners with hearing loss. This requires audiologists to appropriately select, fit, verify and validate the hearing aid(s) with each listener. Historically, the aided audiogram has b...
Sample Collection, Annotation, Archiving, Analysis and Distribution System (SCAAAD)
BackgroundCurrent data collection and archiving methods are time-consuming and error-prone. Field scientists and technicians must carry a wide variety of sampling devices that inherently lack the ability to communicate with each other - often relying on a pen-and-paper system of recording and annotation. Further, when they exit the field and return...
Touch Point Finger Pad Digitizer
BackgroundSignificant advancements have been made in non-clinical surgical training simulations - virtual reality, robotics and computer simulations have enabled a wide range of skills to be practiced and tested. However, there is still significant interest in finding ways to monitor learning progress and confirm proficiency.A surgical trainee has ...
An Asymmetrical Wireless Communication Transceiver
BackgroundExisting solutions for short range wireless communications between a host device and a number of user devices (or sensor nodes) are characterized by the symmetrical designs of their transceiver capabilities. The digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms necessary for channel equalization, compensation and synchronization require a substa...
Integrated Wireless System with Concurrent Locationing, Tracking and Communication for Location Based Applications
BackgroundPosition location technology has become increasingly important to a very broad spectrum of industry sectors, from transportation to healthcare, where accurate position location is desired under diverse circumstances. GPS is effective and accurate outdoors but works very poorly, if at all, indoors and in complex urban environments due to s...
An Adaptive Wireless Transmission Protocol to Maximize Allocation of the Radio Spectrum
BackgroundToday's prevalence of multimedia communication devices places a high demand on wired and wireless communication systems. The wide range of user applications and requirements, coupled with the fast variation of wireless channels, places added pressure on the already overcrowded and inefficiently allocated conventional radio spectrum. User ...
The Desired Sensation Level Multi-stage [i/o] Algorithm
The Desired Sensation Level: DSL [i/o] algorithm was released to manufacturers in the late 1990s in the form of a dynamic loadable/linked library (DLL). We appreciate your support and want you to know that the money that we have received from manufacturers in the form of license fees for the DLL is put back into research, development and technical ...
High Precision Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA) System for Monitoring Micro-Movement in Orthopedic Implants
Background:Over 400,000 people per year in the United States undergo joint replacement surgery comprising a range of implant types and locations. These surgeries include the hip, knee, spine and digital/wrist. It has been well established that short-term micromotion at the implant-bone interface can be a strong predictor of long-term implant loosen...
