BEAD IMMOBILISATION METHOD AND BEAD ARRAYS MADE THEREBY

Swinburne University of T...

1. A method of forming a microarray or nanoarray having functionalized entities arranged on a substrate in a spatially addressable
array, the method comprising the following steps in the order of:
i) providing a casting surface having a plurality of wells therein, each well having a well surface;
ii) depositing one or more beads in a bottom of each of some or all of the wells such that each bead is in contact with the
well surface;

iii) after the depositing one or more beads such that each bead is in contact with the well surface, pouring a casting material
over the casting surface to cast the one or more beads in contact with the well surface onto the casting material and curing
the casting material to form a reverse casting that includes a substrate and a plurality of posts upstanding from the substrate,
each post defined by a respective one of the wells, the plurality of posts having beads immobilized in the casting material
at a top of the posts according to the deposition of the beads in the wells of the casting surface; and

iv) separating the reverse casting from the casting surface to form a unitary bead microarray platform or bead nanoarray platform
with the plurality of posts upstanding from the substrate;

wherein before, during or after the beads are immobilized in the casting material some or all of the beads are selectively
chemically modified to provide one or more functionalities selected from the group consisting of interacting, reacting, binding,
sensing, detecting, identifying and labeling.

SENSOR ARRAY SYSTEM

Swinburne University of T...

1. A system for assessing head injury criterion, the system including a sensor array comprising a plurality of sensors, a processor and a signal output device, wherein the processor analyzes pressure signals input from the plurality of sensors of the sensor array to calculate at least one advanced pressure parameter, the advanced pressure parameter being any one of: instantaneous location of a center of pressure (COP) on the sensor array, magnitude of the COP, speed of movement of the COP, direction of movement of the COP and distribution of the COP within a time period, andthe processor calculates an impact force on an impact area of the sensor array encompassing one or more of the plurality of sensors by integrating pressure signals input from the one or more sensors in the impact area over a time within which an impact occurs, and determines a linear acceleration perpendicular to the impact area based on the calculated impact force and an effective mass of the wearer's head, and
wherein the processor determines a head injury criterion (HIC) for assessment by determining a maximal HIC value from a plurality of HIC values each calculated by multiplying an integral of the linear acceleration over a time period by the inverse of the time period, raising this product to the power of 2.5, and multiplying the result by the time period; wherein the time period is a variable time window having a duration ranging between 1 millisecond and 15 milliseconds and variable starting time, whereby variable time period window acts as a sliding window continuously slid across the time within which the impact occurs combining different time periods and initial times for iterative calculation of HIC values from which only the maximal HIC value is taken, and converted to an auditory, visual or tactile biofeedback signal by the output.
