    Early cancer detection is critical to treatment. Currently, biopsy under endoscopy is used for diagnosis, but most biopsies turn out

    negative. The current project develops a dual axis confocal endomicroscopy with switchable

    vertical/horizontal cross-sectional deep tissue imaging that achieves subcellular resolution with large field of view.

    Technical specs include, XY resolution 2 um, Z resolution 5 um, FOV 600 x 600 um.

    a next-generation myoelectric prosthetic hand forachieving high precision conforming grasping;

    high degrees of freedom and can achieve multiplehand motions;

    Controlled by two EMG signals in the amputatedforearms; and

    Due to smart design, fewer components areneeded, leading to a much lower cost compared toproducts on the markets with similarfunctionalities.
