Is AIDS Completely Curable?
Yes, my research shows it is possible. As of 2010, approximately 34 million people have HIV globally. The present cure available for HIV is stem cell transplant from a person resistant to the virus and this has been achieved only once. The problems with the current cure are
1.) Screening of a person who is resistant to HIV virus
2.) Risk of infection in recipient
The question is how HIV spreads in our body. HIV can only replicate inside human cells. The process typically begins when a virus particle bumps into a cell ...
This is a device to aid those who wear prosthetic limbs. The current state of the art is a multilayer system that consists of a cotton sock and a silicone rubber sock that fits over the limb. The prosthesis can attach to the silicone sock by means of a rod and ratchet device. In the case of an artificial leg the user places the rod into a receptacle in the leg and steps into it. The ratchet then holds onto the rod. However this can cause problems for patients who are physically weak or who suffer from tenderness in ...
The First Dynamic Spherical Harmonic Quantum Chemistry Visual Simulator
Click the above link to watch some sample simulations!
The Quantum Chemistry Simulator will be easy to use software that will have all 112 Elements in the Periodic Table and will be able to change their isotope number so you will be able to add or take away neutrons from the Elements. Each one will be a Dynamic Element with the all the Spherical Harmonics for that Element, you will be able to zoom in, stop the Dynamics, and click on a particle and zoom in so ...
Embossing is an intelligent way to make life easy for blind people. Buttons, types, even banknotes carry embossing for the blind.
Recent technology can scan objects as 3D point cloud with laser or infrared beam, and recent technology can create variable reliefs and embossing with liquid magnets or other ways.
A three dimension camera should be attached to a patient's forehead ( this place can changed according to patient demand, for example to his hand) and a microprocessor sends signals to a plate which is attached to the patient's chest. The plate includes an electromagnet ...
Abstract: Study of Lizard DNA and their ability to regrow their tail again & as there is some human part that also regrow like hair and nails, study of the amino acids & proteins that are responsible for the growth.
The exact mechanism of how these animals can regenerate is not currently well understood. One of the most unique aspects of regeneration in urodeles that has been well documented is that they regenerate by dedifferentiating their cells at the amputation site. Dedifferentiation is a process by which specialized cells regress to a more basic entify stem cells in these organisms. ...
Penetrating the skull to measure intracranial pressure is an important intervention for diagnosing raised intracranial pressure following head trauma. Studies show that 1.7 million people suffer from head injury annually in the U.S., totaling $60 billion in costs. 275,000 of those injured annually are hospitalized and 52,000 will eventually die as a result of that injury. The risk of pressure induced damage can be reduced by penetrating the skull with a small diameter hole and draining excess fluid or placing sensors inside the skull for pressure monitoring. Although frequent monitoring has been correlated with a decrease in ...
Semi-Rigid Supporting Insole (SRSI)
Background: Bone spurs are formed as a result of continued stress on a particular area of the bone. They are most commonly found in areas which sustain large pressures – hips, feet and shoulders. Although they are usually small and smooth, they can cause damage to surrounding soft tissue as well as nerves, which results in severe pain, as well as considerable reduction in physical capability.
Objectives: Due to the fact that bone spurs in the feet can lead to significant loss of mobility, the Semi-Rigid Supporting Insole (SRSI) has been designed to cushion the ...
A PCR machine is required for every single procedure, test, or experiment involving DNA that you can think of. It is good for replicating DNA a few billion-fold, but is most often used to amplify specific sequences of DNA strands, which is extremely useful in diagnosing any disease or condition based in one's genes. Typically, PCR machines cost thousands of dollars and are used by high-end labs, but I want to see citizen scientists, students, and hospitals use PCRs as often as possible, for both medical diagnosis and advancement of the Life Sciences. I succeeded in designing a plausible, ...

Smart cardiologist is an embedded system that performs acquisition of EKG and temperature, real-time signal processing on ECG, draws many important conclusions out of it, and then uploads the final data to GSM services and cloud services (optional).
ECG is a vital parameter which could determine both short-term and long-term health condition of a person.The main motive behind selecting our project is there is no such integrated system which performs both the signal acquisition and analysis to draw information,the signal analysis is usually done on a computer after drawing ECG data which creates a latency for delivering emergency ...
