Mark Bocko Collaboration of Mobile Health Device
A version of a mobile device first developed by Mark Bocko, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in collaboration with Hyekyun Rhee, professor of nursing, is now undergoing clinical trials as a research tool to detect advance indicators of chronic respiratory disease symptoms. ADAMM-RSM is produced by Health Care Originals Inc. which licensed the ADAMM technology originally developed by Mark and Hyekyun as a personal device adolescents could wear to better manage their asthma.
The company further refined the technology so that it can be worn as a flexible patch with a rechargeable battery anywhere on the upper torso, front or back. The personal device is not yet on the market, but the company developed ADAMM-RSM to measure more respiratory factors for use as a research tool. Health Care Original’s co-founders include Sharon Samjitsingh ’13, an alumna of our TEAM master’s program. Read more.
