PROJECT YEAR : 2017
LENGTH : 5 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : A delegation from Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) won a total of nine top prizes, including two Gold Medals with Distinction, two Gold medals, three Special Awards, and two Grand Prizes, at the 45th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva held in Switzerland from 29 March to 2 April 2017.

This is the second year HKBU participated in this prestigious international event. For two years running, HKBU is the only institution in Hong Kong that all the projects it submitted won gold medals.

The “Fatigue Driving Detection and Alarm System” invented by Professor Cheung Yiu-ming uses detection and tracking technology to analyse a driver’s facial expression and head pose captured by the real-time video on a smartphone. An alarm is automatically set off to alert the driver when symptoms of drowsiness manifest themselves.

The “Lanthanide Toolbox” invented by Dr Gary Wong is a new medical imaging reagent that can detect Joubert syndrome and other genetic disorders that come under an emerging class of disorders called Ciliopathies. This new direct primary cilium marker is able to provide a test result in a mere six hours at a fraction of the cost of the current technology through a simpler process in an environment closer to normal conditions and can achieve 100% accuracy.

The “Portable Gait Analyser Functional Flow Chart” invented by Professor Jeffrey Cheung assesses the way people walk and highlights their biomechanical abnormalities. It can also be used in sports biomechanics to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems for people with injuries. This new method puts a single sensor behind a testee’s waist and requires him/her to walk 20 steps. Compared with the traditional method that uses up to 15 cameras to take hundreds of pictures, this new invention is simpler, faster and cheaper.

The “Portable Balance Scale”, also invented by Professor Jeffrey Cheung, measures people’s balance index to reduce the risk of falling over. By analysing the body’s moving amplitude when it tries to maintain balance on an unstable platform, the specific index value can then be measured. The greater the amplitude, the higher the index, with a high index indicating poor balance capability. The whole measurement process is as simple as stepping on a scale.

香港浸會大學的教授團隊於3月29至4月2日在瑞士日內瓦舉行的第45屆日內瓦國際發明展上取得優異成績,參展的四個項目共奪得九個大獎,包括兩項優異金獎、兩項金獎、三項特別大獎和兩項大獎。這是浸大第二年參與這項著名國際賽事,亦是唯一一所香港院校連續兩年所有參賽項目均取得金獎。

張曉明教授的「駕駛人士疲勞檢測及警告系統」使用檢測和追蹤技術,通過智能手機的實時影像,分析駕駛人士的臉部表情和頭部姿態。當駕駛人士出現困倦徵狀,警報會自動響起,以作出提醒。

黃嘉良博士的「鑭系元素工具箱」是新發明的醫學造影試劑,可用於檢測Joubert綜合症和新近出現稱為「纖毛病變」的一類遺傳疾病。這種新的直接初級纖毛標記物能夠在六小時內,在接近正常條件的環境中通過比當前技術更簡單的方法提供測試結果,成本更大幅低,而且準確度達百份之一百。

張大健教授的「單點步態測量法」可應用於醫學診斷及治療,亦可用於運動醫學。研究對象腰背繋上裝有特定程式的手機並步行十數步,即可準確量度和記錄所需的步行數據,並轉化為三維「步態力量圖像」,供研究分析個人身體狀況之用。這方法比傳統以多部高速攝錄機拍攝步態的方法簡單、快速和便宜,而且不受場地和動作限制。

張大健教授的另一項發明「便攜式身體平衡計」,可用於量度每個人的平衡指標,以減低跌倒的風險。研究對象只需在平衡計上步行十數步,平衡計便可記錄其用作平衡的移動幅度,得出其平衡指標。移動幅度愈大,指標愈大,表示平衡力愈不理想。
