The Edison Awards, one of the world's most revered innovation awards, announced the 2022 winners on April 21 in Fort Myers, FL. At this year's program, ITRI won two awards in the science & medical category: a silver for BioMS-Ti, a 3D printed bone implant for tissue integration, and a bronze for the diabetic retinopathy (DR) detection system Portable Edge AI-DR. This marks the sixth year that ITRI has won the honor, showing its creativity and consistency in innovating a better future. BioMS-Ti is a hybrid bionic skeleton structure that is manufactured through SLM 3D printing technology. The bio-active cannulated implant has a controllable porous structure design and can be combined with bio-ceramic or osteogenic materials to accelerate bone regeneration and integration of hard/soft tissue interface. The customized designing and manufacturing processes give it tremendous potential as personalized, precision medical implants in orthopedics, dentistry, and aesthetic medicine. Portable Edge AI-DR is an AI-assisted system to detect diabetic retinopathy (DR). It can locate four main lesions, classify five severity levels of diabetic retinopathy, and can assist physicians in diagnoses of DR, providing advanced care for diabetic eye complication patients in a portable medical device and reducing the need for inconvenient referrals to ophthalmologists for patients with mild DR.
