Buffalo State College Professor Wins Western New York Inventor of the Year Award

Posted: June 9, 2005
Dr. James Mayrose, a lecturer in the Technology Department at Buffalo State College, will share the “Western New York Inventor of the Year” award with two of his colleagues for their invention of a glove-like device that allows physicians to measure the shape and hardness of a patient’s tissues.

Mayrose co-invented the medical device with fellow University at Buffalo scientists Thenkurussi Kesavadas and Kevin Chugh. Mayrose is also on the faculty there.

The device is embedded with sensors that give a computerized, digital output that allows physicians to measure and record quantitative changes in tissue characteristics that can be shared with other physicians and compared with later samples.

“Within two to five years we’ll have an actual product for sale,” Mayrose said.

The award is given each year by the Niagara Frontier Intellectual Property Law Association and the Technical Societies Council of the Niagara Frontier.
