Tissue health, Wound management, Wheelchairs and seating
Dr. Bogie is a biomedical engineer with a background in translational research in tissue health, wound management and wheelchair seating. Dr. Bogie leads studies to develop health maintenance technologies, including the Modular Surface Stimulation (MSS) system to systematically evaluate the effects of electrotherapy for treatment of chronic wounds and an advanced modular cushion for cost-effective pressure relief. Dr. Bogie also studies the application of advanced digital imaging for clinically useful monitoring of chronic wounds and is working with the Rural Telehealth program to implement wound monitoring technology in the field.
