Specific Test of Early Infant Motor Performance (STEP)
Neonatologists, occupational therapists, and researchers at MUSC have created a quantitative 10-item motor skills screening test for detection of early motor deficits in at-risk infants. This rapid test has been compared to a current gold standard infants’ assessment, the qualitative 42-item Tests of Infant Motor Performance (TIMP) at term and...

Looped Skin Hooks "Roberts Retractor"
Technology: Surgeons and researchers at MUSC have created a new design for a skin hook that enables a gripping orientation more clinician-friendly from the traditional pencil-grip style. The design terminates in a loop that may fit around a finger. This loop design may reduce fatigue and permit a single hand to hold more than one skin hook. While introducing...

Modified Martins Insulated Tissue Forceps
Technology: Surgeons and researchers at MUSC have created a new design for forceps that features insulation, horizontal teeth at the distal end, and wide ridges over the finger grips. The design mimics successful insulated forceps like the Lovelace Hemostatic Forceps but utilizes wider tips for greater tissue excision during electrocautery procedures....

Electrically Conductive Nanomaterials Reinforced Cardiac Microtissues
Technology: Progenitor cells provide strong regenerative ability, but are limited by their immature phenotype and inability to generate functional tissues equivalent to adult cardiomyocytes. This technology provides a novel approach to successfully regenerate functional cardiomyocytes from progenitor cells. The strategy involves providing a physiologically-relevant...

DotQuanta Endosome Quantifying Software
Researchers at MUSC have configured a robust, platform-independent algorithm for use of real-time quantification of receptor endosome formation, agonist mobilization, co-localization, areas, and shapes. The algorithm works by segmenting the cells, localizing fluorescently stained nuclei to the segmented outlines, counting the number of small objects...
