Miniature SystemsDraper’s core biomedical and chemical capabilities include wearable and implantable medical device technologies for drug delivery, organ-assist, multitissue engineering, and neural recording applications. Draper integrates multiple technologies and capabilities to create complete miniature systems for these applications. These capabilities include ultraminiaturization capabilities for electronics, including die-level micro-system circuit technology, packaging, electronic circuit design (board-level and ASICs), electrically small antennas, wireless battery charging, chemical sensing, and MEMS sensors.

Chem-Bio SensorsDraper’s pioneering Differential Mobility Spectrometry (DMS), a highly sensitive and specific chemical and biological detection platform, has led to the development of further advanced capabilities in multimode gas-phase chemical detection systems for national security applications.

Clinical Decision SupportDraper’s software engineers develop small and large-scale algorithms to perform feature extraction and decision support for medicine and biosurveillance. These packages provide clinical decision support and diagnostics using image and signal process algorithms, system fault-tolerance prediction and prevention, as well as data analytics for electronic health records.
