Based upon university research, the electro-less 3D Micro-liter incubator array can be deployed and distributed to organizations in the developing world to mitigate pandemics and accelerate vaccine development in the developed world.

This device overcomes limitations of current designs by harnessing micro-fluidic phenomena to strictly regulate individual cellular culture conditions, work in parallel, and reduce sample volumes, while providing a sealed environmental housing and limiting exposure risks. Specifically, the device allows for 25 to 100 different culture conditions to be investigated simultaneously, while supplying reagent and nutrient delivery in a controllable constant and/or variable manner through the use of mini channels, individual wells to be accessed real-time for the study of both the filtrate and cells separately and hermetically ...

We are a medical device start up called Exo Dynamics. Our first product is based on Daniel Johnson PhD work. Exo Dynamics currently has an option agreement with the University of Michigan to use the IP for further busines development.

Our first product is the ExMS-1, an “electromechanically activated” back brace. Unlike current braces, our device focuses not on increasing abdominal pressure, but on transferring the weight of the torso to the hip. This gives support to the back muscles, thus reducing their effort. By changing its shape as the user moves, it allows for free motion of the user, maintaining support through a wide variety of postures, thus substantially reducing the strain on the lower back muscles and ...

The present invention relates to an expander for the lower part of the body which expander can be easily used at home and other places by anybody for straightening the lumbar to prevent lower back pains and strengthening the leg and abdomen muscles.

The same applies to health equipment for preventing lower back pains such as lumbago.

No health equipment has not been available yet which can simultaneously accomplish the sure traction stretch of the lumbar, particularly the sacra which are fourth and fiftli vertebrae regarded to be difficult to pull by conventional health equipment and the strengthening of the leg and abdomen muscles.

The waist belt is merely used to fix the lower back and has a little ...

The Eye Glove is designed to help visual impaired people live better. The Eye Glove translates object distance into pressure along the finger, allowing for a much more accurate spacial perception for the user.

A laser distance meter captures the object distance in real time, the hand mounted processor and finger mounted pressure actuators translate this distance into a pressure applied in the finger.

The location of the applied pressure to the finger (measured from the finger tip) is proportional to the object distance. When the object is closer to the finger, the pressure moves towards the finger tip. When the object is far from the finger, the pressure moves towards the finger base. The finger tip is free ...

The main objective of our project is to develop a wheelchair which can be controlled by the movement of the eyes for the mobility of the old and physically disabled. In our project we are using a goggle to which we are fitting two eye tracking sensors. These sensors sense the movement of the eyeball’s direction and converts it into digital data and transfer it to a microcontroller. Here in the transmitter section, an encoder is used which helps in encoding the parallel digital value to serial digital value and an RF transmitter module converts this into the required carrier signal.

The RF receiver fetches the data from the RF transmitter. When the address and data pin gets matched ...

There are many female condoms designed till now. A basic need in the recent times of spreading diseases and more awareness among women. However, the designs have quite failed to capture the customer need and is uncomfortable to assemble and put it on. Also a penetrative kind of design is extremely unappealing to many women. This demotivation led to low sales and also dependency on pill type pregnancy prevention which plays with hormones, and dependency on their male counterparts to wear the usual condom.

My inspiration is the universal sanitary pad. a very easy design and extremely easy to place and be comfortable all day long. However with some smart changes and study of the forces my design overcomes ...

The loss of vision through retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration is a slow torture many have been forced to endure. Retinal prosthesis are beginning to change all that though electrical stimulation. In a healthy human retina, there is a 1.5mm across section on the retina that is composed of an extremely dense patch of cones, known as the fovea. The concentration of cones decreases rapidly as you move away from the retina, with rods filling in the gaps. The high density of cones allows for the high color and detail perception associated with the fovea. There are three types of cones, each tuned to a specific wavelength spectrum, which stimulate the underlying ganglion cells to allow the perception of ...

I have developed a machine that aids stroke and head injuries patients to learn to walk and improve motor skills. This machine is micro-processor controlled devices that has two hand switches and two foot switches that progress from homologous (first both hands and then both feet) stage to homo-lateral (right hand and foot then left hand and foot) and finally the third stage bi-lateral (right hand and left foot then left hand and right foot). These are the stages that an infant goes through to learn to walk. There are four Light emitting diode that guide the patient through the individual stages. There is a counter for correct responses and a counter to record an incorrect response. There is ...

Hospitals are losing the fight against nosocomial infections that affect 1.4 million people per day, and killing 100,000 in the US annually. We aim to reduce Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) by 30%, saving patient lives and hospital treatment costs. Alcohol-based hand rubs are recognized as the most effective tool to prevent HAI, therefore these became a standard and a European Norm.

Our Hand-in-Scan innovation (PCT patent pending) has the unique capability to provide objective and real-time feedback to the user and the management on the efficacy of hand rubbing. It uses ultraviolet light and digital imaging with Artificial Intelligence methods to highlight disinfected versus unaffected areas after regular hand rubbing, and it also provides an overall quality score. These functions ...

Executive Summary
HealthViewer™ is a next-generation, interactive software that connects the doctor and patient. It’s a decision support tool (DST) used by providers to promote shared decision-making and by patients to understand the landscape of their diagnosis, the treatment options, and associated paths to maintaining and achieving better health. The software is designed for institutional adoption to raise the standard of patient education and involvement throughout the course of treatment. Health Information Technology such as HealthViewer™ can reduce provider liability and, by reducing extraneous tests and futile pursuits, save time and effort and reduce costs for all stakeholders.

Consistent with the latest research tenets on shared decision-making, the software is designed to be customized, enabling the possibility of creating ...
