New-Medical.Net article reports on the joint project by researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) to reduce re-hospitalization rates for people with heart failure.
WHAM-TV reports on the Fully-Integrated Toilet Seat (FIT Seat) research led by Dave Borkholder, a professor in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, in collaboration with the University of Rochester Medical Center funded by a new 2.9M grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Dr. Borkholder was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “outstanding contributions to precision biomedical devices that integrate advanced microsystems, federal policy, and research mentoring.”
Nuzhet Nihaar Nasir Ahamed, PhD Student, won the 2019 Outstanding Service Award from RIT's International Students Committee. This award recognizes international students who have made special contributions to campus life at RIT or the Rochester community.
Borkholder, professor of microsystems engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology, is researching the effectiveness of a sensor system his team designed and integrated into a seat that looks no different than those found at local home improvement stores.
