PROJECTS

The projects selected to be developed at REDx-WeSchool are sector-agnostic; proposing unique, disruptive solutions with huge social impact. Our innovations have so far attempted to solve real-life challenges from multiple areas like medical/ healthcare industry, civic issues like urban development & waste management and financial inclusion.

The Lab has been able to achieve significant results in

  • Sustainable, quickly scalable health-monitoring & disease-screening innovations
  • Meticulously designed human-centric products
  • Data analysis and AI algorithms producing actionable insights that address genuine problems impacting billions.

The work has been recognized with multiple publications in top-tier international conferences and journals (IEEE, ACM, SPIE etc), Intellectual property in India (Industrial Design rights, Patents), and as commercial products in our communities (via spinning off Startups, and licensing-out products).

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

 

 dermato_label - Copy

Dermato comprises of a mobile phone clip-on and a spectrometer that aims to differentially diagnose skin conditions using fluorescence spectroscopy of skin. While spectrometry is being validated in clinical studies, the mobile clip-on is being extensively used by dermatologists. The hardware is supported by a companion app that allows to capture magnified, high-quality images of skin lesions, annotate, store and access them along with patient data whenever needed.
Intellectual Property rights (design rights and provisional patent) have been secured for the device.

 aurito_label - Copy (3)

Aurito is an innovative device to image conditions and infections of the middle ear. It comprises of a mobile-phone compatible (OTG supported) camera that helps in visualizing middle ear and screening for various ear infections. A companion mobile phone application helps practitioners keeping patient records, documenting changes over time and annotate images/ videos of the ear.
Intellectual Property rights (design rights and provisional patent) has been secured for the device.

magvue_label - Copy (2)

Magvue is a portable setup consisting of a mobile clip-on that turns a smartphone into an affordable video magnifier for low vision people and a smartphone mounting stand. Currently, the hardware provides 12.5X optical magnification. It also has a companion mobile application that leverages the computational capabilities of the smartphone and provides additional contrast options along with digital magnification. This project is being done in collaboration with Lotus College of Optometry.
Intellectual Property rights (design rights and provisional patent) have been secured for the device.

 

Urvolution

Urvolution is the study of growth parameters for rapidly-expanding cities. By mapping the changes in buildings, roads, water reservoirs and green cover over time, we aim to come up with scores, actionable insights and predictive measures for urban growth.

 

BetterBins

BetterBins is a range of conscientiously designed Storage artifacts that enables you to store dry waste generated in your space in an elegant, hassle-free manner, thereby promoting segregation of waste into wet waste and dry waste at source.

 

PAST PROJECTS

 

aram_label - Copy

Apnea Rest Analysis Mask (ARAM) is a wearable device for at-home screening and monitoring of Sleep Apnea. It monitors five most crucial parameters of subject’s sleep that can aid in faster and reliable identification of risks for Sleep Apnea. Validated for its efficiency and user experience, it has been appreciated by the scientific community and accepted to be presented at the 38th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC’16).

 

cardio 24_label - Copy

Cardio24 is a web-platform based screening tool built around continuous ECG monitoring devices (wearables in particular) to screen for cardiovascular diseases. Its algorithm has been validated against the data from gold-standard diagnostic systems. It has been made open-source for the community to use as per their application needs. Analysis algorithm (in Matlab) to label ECG data and detect abnormalities in the signal: github.com/redxlab/cardio24

 

sensecam_label - Copy (2)

SenseCam is a real-time camera-based emotion detection system. It is a non-invasive, privacy-preserving system, which will be able to detect facial expressions, HRV (heart rate variability), stress and other human vitals. It can aid Autistic children to learn expressing emotions and needs, and also help monitor patients in hospitals.
