Overview

Coronary artery disease, the restriction of blood flow to the heart, is the leading cause of death in the United States. The chances of suffering a myocardial infarction are great and increase up to fifteen times after the first occurrence. During a heart attack, heart muscle is depraved of oxygen and will literally die if the artery remains blocked. The first few hours are critical in saving much of the dying heart muscle and preventing permanent heart damage. Unfortunately, the symptoms vary and the most common reason for critical delays in medical treatment is lack of early warning and patient unawareness.

Objectives

It is possible to detect the onset of a heart attack and eliminate patient error. Our ...

Wireless power systems, such as inductive power transfer (IPT), can be installed at airports to power aircraft while idling at gates and on taxiways. This would eliminate the need to run jet engines to power stationary aircraft, annually saving approximately 750 Mgallons of fuel and eliminating over 7 million mtons of carbon dioxide. Airport noise due to idling aircraft would also be significantly reduced. Such large-scale IPT systems are not being commercially produced for the airline industry.

Such a system is ideal for aircraft ground operations, since there are very specific aircraft parking locations at gates, taxiway paths, and holding locations where power "transmitters" can be installed in the tarmac. Since power transfer efficiency is inversely proportional to the ...

I am proud to have designed the first functional artificial finger for amputees; called X-Fingers. These simple yet effective tools enable finger amputees to control the movement of each replaced phalange. The devices move as quickly as real fingers restoring considerable strength and dexterity. The devices are body-powered and no batteries or motors are needed; allowing for uninterrupted use. The devices replace 1-10 missing fingers lost at any length. Furthermore, no surgeries are needed and the devices are as easy to apply and remove as a glove. Once applied, a supple cosmetic cover fits over the assembly for added realism.

Approximately 94% of all non-fatal amputations involve fingers. More than one in every two hundred people will lose one ...

U.S. patent 7,976,267: “Helix Turbine System and Energy Production Means” is a modified helical vertical axis wind turbine. The invention was designed to be mounted on the peaks of roofs, edges of buildings, or with a conical or dome shaped base at the base to take advantage of the turbulent and accelerated wind energy produced. Vertical axis wind turbines can capture turbulent and non-directional wind from all directions and can begin rotating at lower wind speeds than horizontal axis wind turbines.

The invention can be found on HelixTurbineEnergy.com along with valuable wind turbine information.

The patented modified helical vertical axis wind turbine improvements include:
1. The helical wind turbine’s blades have a solid disc attached to the top edge ...

In the United States, only 15% of available donor lungs are transplanted into critical recipients due to the associated damage to the organs from the traumatic death event.

The XVIVO Perfusion System (XPS) is a mobile intensive care unit that can repair damaged organs ex vivo (out of the donor's body) for successful transplantation into a waiting recipient. The XPS includes a centrifugal cardiac bypass pump, fluid heater/cooler unit, in-line fiber optic gas analyzer (to determine continuous pH, pCO2 and pO2) and an ICU ventilator. It safely perfuses a blood substitute throughout the entire organ in a carefully controlled environment, which allows the damaged organ to effectively repair itself over time. In a North American clinical trial (published in ...

Yes I know this is NASA but this is really simple. Efficiency is better! Diesel engines have been around for 100 years. They have improved but are reaching a point of diminishing return. Their fundamental process is the same – combustion in a cylinder that pushes a piston. At the end of its stroke, the hot gases still have a lot of energy and that goes out the exhaust pipe. The YankeeDiesel allows that energy to expand more and produce more power. It is a radical design that would not come from the people who have been using a reciprocating piston for 100 years.

The YankeeDiesel project started in 2007 with two goals: 1) increasing the peak efficiency and ...

A Zero Degree Turning Building Periphery Dispenser, an inexpensive method and process improvement for dispensing liquid sealer and liquid tar or any heavy mixed liquidized compound around the base and edge of a home or business structure’s foundation.

Currently, problems exists associated with the expensive heavy equipment nozzle sprayer applicator due to: (1) the unintended excessive over-spray from the gasoline generator powered pressure nozzle directing liquid sealer and liquid tar around the structure base and edge, and (2) the gasoline generator directs pressure forcing out liquid sealer and liquid tar through a wand sprayer nozzle which accumulates residual liquid sealer or liquid tar buildup that causes high equipment failure rates due to a clogged up nozzle port.

Eliminating problematic ...

I think it was Bob Dylan who once said " If you want to be truly subversive, you can't tell anyone." It is that premise that inspired this method to transform the suburban American landscape. For many years, the look of the suburban landscape has been dominated by large turf grass lawns leading up to a home. This look is derived from English manor homes of the 1800's. The look, although unnatural, is accepted as being the standard in most parts of the country. To change this perception and improve our local environment is the goal of this concept.

A turf grass lawn has many drawbacks such as the need for watering, fertilizer, and herbicides in order to survive ...

Creating a cleaner, healthier, safer world where you may never have to buy gasoline or diesel fuel again, where you could get a check from the electric company instead of a bill and where nuclear power will be unnecessary. Sustainable economies without pain or sacrifice.

Our patent application has been published, so we can now reveal why the Zero Pollution Engine™ (ZPE™) from Massive Nibble™ is better than all other engines and how it will change the world. The ZPE™ can help end concerns about global warming and help solve most of the world's energy, water, fuel and pollution problems, while helping create jobs and boosting the money supply by reducing oil imports.

The ZPE™ is heated externally, so ...

Zinkbag is a portable printing solution based on the revolutionary Zink technology. In the digital age, where boundaries merge and convergence is the key, there's always an increasing requirement for technology on-demand, for making lives better by doing things better.

Zinkbag is primarily designed for people who travel a lot and have a constant need for printing, especially in color. The product takes the form of a sleek and trendy bag which enhances the portability of the product. The product gives out A4 color prints and accepts data through wired and wireless connections.

Product Context:

Hey, I am Krishna. I am part of a craft programme, running in 60 villages. We travel every week, to different villages, interacts with ...
