Michelle is a novel training dummy with the purpose of improving quality of executed CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). This to improve survival chances of victims suffering Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), and to lower the amount of brain damage victims suffer during CPR.

CPR is a procedure executed on victims suffering SCA to continue oxygen transportation to the vital organs (mainly the brain) until further actions can be taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing.

During CPR, blood circulation is restored through the compression of the chest above the heart by pushing blood through the circulatory system. Oxygen residue in the lungs is provided by mouth to mouth breathing, sending oxygenated air into the lungs to be diffused into the ...

Mobile Amputee Prosthetic Limb Management is a mobile software application that creates a mathematical model for individual and populations of amputees so that a better prosthetic limb fit can be achieved. The mobile application provides an individual with a software tool to track limb edema and factors that affect edema of their limb. Their data is also shared anonymously to the online web portal where data analysis is conducted. The web portal allows the population of amputees, caregivers and medical device manufacturers to track trends in edema based the contribution of the population of users.

This application uses the power of crowd sourcing information from a medical population to create a mathematical model that can be given back to ...

The objective of the project is to help the physically challenged persons having both hand and leg impairments so that they can operate their bed and its movements through their voice commands.

Quadriplegia is paralysis caused by illness or injury to a human that results in the partial or total loss of use of all their limbs. They have to be in wheelchair throughout their life and have to be dependent on another person for moving from place to place.

This project helps them to operate their bed with their voice command and so making them independent and to lead life with a little more comfort.

The main advantage of the project is the flexibility and comfort offered to the ...

NANO-NETS ARE NETS....THAT ARE ASSEMBLED KRIEHN BY KRIEHN. (PREVIOUSLY NAMED THE ATOM)
.
THEY CURE CANCER, AIDS, ANY DISEASE, AND/OR POISON IN THE THE BODY.
.
THEY DO THIS BY ENTANGLING THE UNWANTED CELL OR CHEMICAL PARTICLE, IN IT'S NET LIKE STRUCTURE! MILLION UPON BILLIONS OF POSSIBLE DESIGNS.!
.
BECAUSE CELLS, AND DIFFERENT MOLECULES, FOR THAT MATTER, HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPES.....THE NAN0-NETS, ALSO, HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPES; CORRESPONDING T0 WHATEVER UNWANTED CELL OR PARTICLE THAT ARE TRYING TO CAPTURE.
.
MUCH LIKE A FISH THROUGH A CRAB NET....THE GOOD CELLS PASS THROUGH UNHARMED....HOWEVER,....THERE HAS BEEN SOME BY-CATCH.
.
VERY MINIMAL, ALMOST 0.0002% COMPARED WITH CHEMOTHERAPY.
.
.
AND, DID KNOW KNOW THAT "CANCER" ACTUALLY MEANS "CRAB," AND GOT IT'S NAME FROM ...

Simplicity is a new spinal tap kit that utilizes a two-part system to improve the accuracy and accessibility of the spinal tap procedure while simultaneously reducing patient pain/discomfort during and after the procedure. The first part of Simplicity is a dual-needle lumbar puncture device which consists of an introducer needle/base, a stylet, and a radial-advancement Whitacre needle. The introducer needle/base is a short needle that, when inserted, stops short of the dura and serves as stabilizer/guide for the Whitacre needle which is inserted through the introducer needle. A stylet is present in the introducer needle during insertion to prevent tissue coring.

Whitacre needles, with their bullet-shaped tip, have been proven to reduce the number of occurrences of post-puncture headache ...

In this invention, we will develop a type of linear induction motor in which powerful electromagnets will be able to drive the blood itself within the human body, thus providing a new means of life support without surgery or dependence on the beating of the heart. Much research must be done to build a practical, portable machine which has the capability to magnetically penetrate several inches of human flesh, induce currents within the saline fluids, and then drive the blood through the vessels without harming the blood, tissues, or organs. It may also be necessary to simultaneously drive fluids on other organs such as the lungs. The goal of this invention is to give medical science another tool which ...

The verasense is an intelligent surgical device used during Total Knee Arthoplastic surgery to help the surgeon to balance and align the knee. The device uses a sensor to give the surgeon feedback on load on the knee as well as mechanical alignment of the patient's leg. The device uses RFI to communicate to the non-sterile field where a Graphic User Interface provide the information to the surgeon.

The device is a single use and it is used during surgery before implantation of the final device.
Research shows that instability and misalignment cause approximately 36% of all orthopedic implant failures.

 ranging from ages 2 through 8 and mostly boys continue to be diagnosed with autism. Identifiable biomarkers at birth to assist in early diagnosis continue to be a challenge. The stigma in some cultures associated with autism is a steep and perilous bridge for parents and support groups to meet the needs of families and kids diagnosed with autism. The Vitalbeat Autism app engages a animated character Ruffles inspired by a loving Labrador helping kids with repetitive tasks and learning. Repetitive actions such as brushing teeth, repeating phrases and several actions involving speech, gestures and audio visual interaction enabled through the use of a interactive perceptual gesture camera and a tablet device. The Vitalbeat app along with the gesture ...

One of the primary frustrations of working as a pharmacist is the amount of time spent counting and sorting pills for patients and customers. This takes away precious time from the pharmacist that could be better spent on education about the drug and possible interactions with other drugs the patient or customers may be taking.

The new apparatus is a combination of 4 distinct items. A handheld bar code scanner, a pick and place robot arm, a machine vision apparatus, and a database of pill information.

Essentially the system will work as follows:
1). The pharmacist will pullup a prescription, and locate the correct drug on shelf.
2). He or she will then scan the pill bottle with the ...

It is impossible to imagine modern medicine without sophisticated electronic equipment for precision metering of different liquids and gases. The most crucial parameters of such equipment are accuracy, responsiveness, reliability, wide range of adjustable output and of cause a reasonable cost.

There are two main systems for variable control of fluid flow currently available to the appliance market: a) modulated solenoid valves and b) rotational valves with different types of actuation. Bulky design, slow response, complex electronics, parts’ wear, inconsistency of the output and noise can be main disadvantages of some of these systems.

This invention solves existing valves’ issues by utilizing movement of a rotatable ferromagnetic occluder, which is exposed in the magnetic field created by ...
