A new tool for the early detection of heart failure

CP Stethoscope test

The CP-Stethoscope, proposed by UH startup company MiWa Technologies, is a unique, non-invasive radio-frequency sensor for continuous monitoring of multiple vital signs, including measurement of changes in lung water content for early detection of heart failure and other cardiopulmonary diseases. The National Science Foundation has published a highlight featuring this UH Manoa research success story on their website.  The NSF credits ... Read More »

[VIDEO] Microrobotics team excels once again at international challenge

Microrobots assemble glass beads in a UH pattern

Microrobots in action: The UH microrobot (bright circular object) assembles tiny glass beads into a mini “UH.” Each bead is smaller than the diameter of a human hair. The University of Hawai`i at Mānoa’s Microrobotics team placed third in the mobility event of the 2014 Mobile Microrobotics Challenge, held in Hong Kong from May 31 to June 2, 2014, as part ...
