News Flash: MicroGen is a relatively new company making MEMS energy harvesters based on a cantilever design developed at Cornell. Read about a recent deal we're these devices will be fabricated in Lubbock Texas, at x-fab in the Rochester Business Journal. The SCME has a suite of learning modules and a hands on kit to learn how micro cantilevers work.
Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module
This Category includes the Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).
The following SCME YouTube video can be used to support one of the therapeutic devices discussed in this learning module.
The Workings of the Retinal Prosthesis (5:08 minutes)
This is a short presentation that focuses on the retinal prostheses that uses an array of micro-sized electrodes that is placed on a patient's retina to pick up rays of light sent from a camera on the eyeglasses of the patient.
A narrated presentation is available on YouTube. Click the link below.
Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module - Participant (Student) Guide
This learning module provides an overview of MEMS being used or being designed to prevent, monitor, or manage disease or disease specific problems.
In the activity you are asked to design a marketing brochure for a specific micro-sized device used to prevent, monitor or manage a disease.
