A “feather-weight”, non-conductive, non-metallic (no wires or metal connections at or near the light-emitting fabric surface), flexible, machine-washable visual display that is embedded into apparel fabric materials via CNC machines.
The output display measuring from a few inches up to 16” in fabric consists of multiple transmission and receptor points using LED/Optic technology coupled with Bluetooth and/or IR encrypted communication protocols. Receiving data from a small watch or bracelet with a GSR sensor measuring resistance changes in the skin, the ECG and heart rate measurements are converted through algorithms then displayed immediately at the surface of the fabric in full-color graphic representations and/or digital formats at an intensity automatically adjusted to ambient light levels. I demonstrated a ...
The objective of this project is to understand, manipulate and enhance the dexterity of a robotic hand, and its controlling by various methods (in our case, a potentiometer fitted Exoskeleton Glove).
Our project may be a useful alternative for people who have lost their arm. The output from their sensory nerves may be tapped, amplified and fed as control signals to the robotic arm. This project is the first step to manufacture cheap prosthetics for the needy.
The project is also applicable in fields of manual scavenging of radioactive materials, where the human hand cannot sustain radiation, but a robotic arm may be helpful.
The project implementation is subdivided into the main tasks, as follows..
RESEARCH: - Understanding of ...
The system Suction or aspiration of fluids or secretions Bodily is used in a large number of surgeries worldwide, this system allows fluids collect in a container (Liner) safely and without risk of contamination, there are currently Different Products as rigid disposable Canister disposable suction liners, which have a good performance and in functionality are effective, unfortunately a large number of hospitals and clinics in the world do not use because the cost, as it is more economical to use a solid container which must be washed after each procedure, which increases the risk of contamination and infection and the possibility of damaging the vacuum system of the place, and does not allow good management of hazardous waste (blood, ...
The world is facing a global cancer crisis. 13.7 million new cancer cases and 8.6 million cancer deaths occurred worldwide in 2011. More than half of the new cases, and nearly two-thirds of deaths, were in developing countries. Despite substantial innovations, there remains a lack of treatment methods that are cost-effective enough to be widely and practically implemented in these countries.
The existing methods for administration of these drugs have been primarily through intravenous delivery via a complex and costly pole-based infusion pump setup. These setups are needed to administer complex drug schedules and as a result, infusion pumps have prevented treatment for early-stage cancers from becoming widely accessible.
We have a solution. Four Harvard ...
}Patented DAMPS TM Technology utilizes opposing super magnets to reduce heel strike over 68%, as recorded with F-Scan pressure surface mapping testing for Special Operation Forces (SOF) in 2006.
SAIC (Science International Applications Corporation)in San Diego, CA is our POC (Point of Contact) for the military since 1998.
Further independent third party 1G 3G & 5G accelerometer testing in 2012 proved again there are no comparable shock mitigation technology footwear available in the market place today.
DAMPS MKIV Smart Boots also completed successful PHASE I user testing with SORSE (Special Operations Research Development Test and Evaluation)and AFSOC (Air Force Special Operations Command)in 2010-2012. We are now pending a PHASE II contract award for 2013.
This Phase II double blind ...
The project focuses on analysis and design of a special hospital bed designed for the department of anesthesiology and resuscitation. The bed is adjusted for the use at the department of anesthesiology and resuscitation not only with its look but also with its functions. The design emphasizes the ergonomics of the bed, safety and the needs of the patient as well as of the staff and also easy maintenance of the bed. Some of the main innovative elements are: basal stimulation system (speakers, microphone, miniprojector) placed directly in the bed, used colors (white and green friendly combination), more infusion-rack holders or a headboard fixed to the construction of the bed if not needed. The bed was designed especially to ...
The rise of the diseases today has been attributed to unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle and habits such as smoking, high alcohol and carbonated drink consumption, and heavy consumption of junk food that are extremely high in cholesterol and sugar content. The onset of the diseases is usually being unaware and left striking silent until red flag symptoms are recognized, it is usually too late. Fortunately, today's remarkable advancements in medical technique has enabled deployment of MEMS (or Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) for diagnosis, drug delivery and surgery. MEMS is the ultimate enabling technology where electromechanical machines from the macro-world are crafted into a tiny chip via semiconductor fabrication process.
Why MEMS for medication ? Many materials used in MEMS are biocompatible ...
Measuring the volume of urine (or liquids) and monitoring it at bedside or central station of units at hospitals
are very important.
In my design, by a simple and cheap way we can monitor the volume of urine and liquids.This design is independent of cylindrical container for each patient. In comparison with current ways and monitoring my design is more effective, precise, simple and cheap.
Also, it can be used to measure all liquids.
So, as you can see in Fig.1, I used two pairs of ultrasonic sensors, that should be as the type used in sonography or echo cardiography equipment for their sensitivity and precision. One Height/Y sensor to detect the height of cylindrical container at ...
This is a device intended for use as a external ventricular assist device or as a direct cardiac replacement. The current state of the art consists of air powered heart pump devices. This device is electric and runs on a battery.
This device can create a future for those people suffering from cardiac issues. Approximately 40% of people on a transplant waiting list perish, often from a lack of suitable donors or tissue compatibility issues. Also consider newborn babies or smaller kids who are simply too small for donor hearts to fit. This device could give them a future.
My original design in the 80’s made use of metal artificial muscle materials. Unfortunately these required far ...
The exquisite sensitivity and specificity of antibody based assays is limited by their discontinuous nature. Separate samples must be withdrawn and tested to determine changes in the concentration of an analyte over time. This proposal focuses on a way to make antibody-based assays continuous, i.e., for a single probe to continually report changes in the concentration of various materials. The approach is based on a new type of stable antibody that conducts electricity. The flow of electrons through the antibody is interrupted whenever antigen is bound giving a proportional decrease in the signal seen by the transistor. An “approach-to-equilibrium” method is used to analyze the signal and obtain results in “real time.”
It has been known for over 50 ...
