Secure Advanced Monitoring Systems

Maintaining secure networks is critical for large and high-value institutions, but providing technical staff with remote direct access to sensitive systems and real-time operational data can be vital to protecting value. For example, UC San Diego maintains highly-secure networks, yet there is a need to provide monitoring for freezer systems that contain priceless samples and materials that are often irreplaceable

Pain Assessment Method And Apparatus For Patients Unable To Self Report Pain

Though pain assessment is a crucial part of many medical treatment plans, most physicians rely on patients self-reporting their own pain levels. This self-reporting strategy may be convenient to some patients trying to determine whether the patient should get to a doctor, but in some situations, especially where a patient is non-communicative or incapacitated, these patients may be unable to clearly express themselves to a medical professional. As such, researchers at UCI have developed a novel device that automatically and objectively monitors a patient’s pain levels by tracking/monitoring subconscious facial movements in real-time.

Gated Electrodes For Electrolysis And Electrosynthesis

Gated electrode structures to improve the process of electrolysis and electrosynthesis.
