Tommy Cooper published in Medical Design Briefs

CCS founder and president Tommy Cooper wrote “Lasers: The Next Generation of Fetal Monitoring” for the January 2016 edition of Medical Design Briefs. The article discusses the cerebral oxygen monitoring device CCS developed for Noninvasix, which is able to make non-invasive measurements of cerebral blood parameters.  This real-time data lets hospital staff identify adverse conditions immediately.  Quick actions can prevent brain damage and other serious conditions, and this device enables those actions.

This is the second time the project has been published in a technical journal article.  We are very happy it has been getting exposure and we would like to congratulate our client on their pioneering work in this field.

CCS Project Wins NASA Award

Cooper Consulting Service (CCS) is currently working on an exercise and health monitoring device with NASA. In December, we had the opportunity to present the project at the EISD Poster Session at the Johnson Space Center (JSC).  Approximately 50 current NASA projects (including ours) made displays and gathered in the collaboration center.  We had the chance to give brief presentations to all of the NASA staff members who stopped by, including JSC Director Dr. Ellen Ochoa.

We were very honored that CCS and our NASA team were given the Director’s Choice award, which was voted on by senior NASA staff members. We look forward to continuing work on this project and helping the space program improve physiological monitoring of our astronauts in orbit.  Thanks again to our NASA team!nasa-bldg-1 nasa-poster nasa-session-2 nasa-present

CCS device used on TV show

The LifeSync device designed by Cooper Consulting Service recently had a cameo appearance on CW’s TV series The Flash, based on the DC Comics character. Here is a picture of the character wearing the device on his arm:

CCS is always happy to see our projects in use in the field, or at least representing their use on television (it does look like it is hooked up properly).  Tell us about your device idea and perhaps you will see it in the bright lights of Hollywood… but more likely, the bright lights of a hospital or doctor’s office.

CCS Project Published in Medical Design Technology

Cooper Consulting Service worked with Noninvasix to develop their prototype cerebral oxygenation monitor.  The project was published recently in Medical Design Technology, which focused on how it can be used to prevent brain damage in infants and neonates using a novel non-invasive monitoring technique.  You can read the full article here.

CCS would be glad to help you make your life-changing device a reality as well.  Visit our contact page and let us know how we can help you.

CCS attends NIWeek

We met with other NI Alliance members, the Texas field team, and numerous NI employees and customers.  All in the lively (but very hot) Austin downtown.

If you have an application using NI hardware or software that could use a boost, CCS is a NI Alliance Partner. Head on over to our Contact Us page and let us know how we can assist.NIWeek
