Earlier this year Donald Spector, Chairman of the Board at New York College, and one of the most prolific inventors in the world, got a patent for biosensor signals that are transmitted from Smartphones to third party agencies. Spector envisioned this technology even before there were Smartphones and has one of the earliest known patents in this area. Now major technology companies are discussing its usage in the military, child care, elder care and hospital applications. This technology has drawn interest from many universities and corporations that are looking into expanding it.
Recently, New York College of Health Professions set up MOU’s with Wake Forest Innovations, the commercialization enterprise of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Wake Forest University, as well as New York Medical College, part of the Touro University System, for an Applied Research Consortium. “Discussions are underway with other universities and major corporations for the expansion of the technologies of the College as well as this new technology,” says Pamintuan.
