Research: Initiatives



Telemedicine brings doctors into remote locations with high-speed Internet access, jitter-free image transmission and sophisticated surgery tools.  From diagnosing patients in remote locations to collaborating with physicians in other areas to monitoring patients' post-stroke rehabilitation to performing surgery remotely, telemedicine is opening new doors to healthcare possibilities. 

Researchers are also investigating ways in which sensor technology can be incorporated into devices to assist the elderly, sight-challenged and physically challenged populations. These devices can monitor progress from remote locations and actually help users improve their balance, mobility, sensory capabilities and speech.
