The ADCDS-1801 is an industry-leading, application specific CCD image converter designed for electronic-imaging applications that employ CCD's (charge coupled devices) as their photodetector. The ADCDS-1801 incorporates a "user configurable" input amplifier, a CDS (correlated double sampler) and an 18-bit resolution sampling A/D converter in a single package, providing the user with a complete, high performance, low-cost, low-power, integrated solution.

The key to the ADCDS-1801's performance is a unique, high-speed, high-accuracy CDS circuit, which eliminates the effects of residual charge, charge injection and "kT/C" noise on the CCD's output floating capacitor, producing a pixel data output signal. The ADCDS-1801 digitizes this resultant pixel data signal using a high-speed, low-noise sampling A/D converter.

The ADCDS-1801 requires only the ...

Chronic wounds are estimated to cost the American healthcare system up to $25 billion annually and are responsible for considerable morbidity among patients, especially the nation’s elderly. US clinicians treated an estimated 90.8 million major wounds in 2004 and the total wound care market in the US is estimated in the billions. Advances in technology have afforded the availability of low cost, high-resolution thermal imaging systems.

This patented wound management camera (US20130162796 A1 - Approved: Jun 27th, 2013) provides a preventative diagnostic medical device to locate, evaluate, and recognize areas of degradation in a wound, inflammation, and premature sub-dermal ulcerations from any remote location across the globe. The images and information gathered can be sent back to a central call ...

Use a spectrometer with a coded algorithm that uses the Internet to send alerts to a smart device. The scanner can scan food of many types providing the end user with the information needed when dining out. It should be in portable form with a back up battery or induction ...

Using Nanotechnology to cure the dragon disease called cancer.

Cancer cell have a higher temperature than the body temperature. The nano bots carrying the cancer treatment drug will be temperature sensing bots, which when coming into contact with the cancer cell will open up and pour the drug directly into the cancer affected cells.

The quantity of the drug required will be less, as well as the effect will be quick and response will be quite effective.

The manufacturing of the nano bots will be easy and ...

Generally, patient gets medicine in three ways: Injection, Swallowing or Inhaling. With injection and swallowing, the dosage of drug goes into the body are exact. While inhaling procedure and consequence are more complicated (Fig 1). Although the quantity of each dosage of a medical spray is supposed to be the same, the effective dosage and distribution of atomized meter dose inhaler into airway are largely based on the inhaling waveform and inhaling/spraying time relationship.

At present, how the patients are really doing in this matter is not known to the doctors. Incorrect inhaling will largely affect treating efficiency, lower patient/doctor/pharmacist compliance, and waste of medical resources.

With this revolutionary “Intelligent Inhaler” (Fig 2), the action of inhaling ...

A safe, wireless, wearable device applicable to the finger or toe or hand palm in order to reduce the risk of the Sudden Infant Death syndrome. This device may be inside a fabric finger cap, perhaps with a pacifier, on a glove. It measures blood oxygen saturation and heart rate via pulse oximetry. When any of these parameters falls, an electric stimulation causes the child’s reaction. This reaction causes the child to save himself.

Actually, the FDA has not approved any medical device to reduce the risk of SIDS. A medical device must join two conditions to be approved. My device joins both.

Obviously, the caregivers could use the same device if they want, via Wifi, bluetooth or phone.

Amputation has long been a problem for humankind, but thanks to prosthetics this isn't as much of an issue now. But a solution with a glitch isn't much of a solution. Prosthetic legs available in India are known popularly as Jaipur Foot or Jaipur Leg.

These are made with a Solid Ankle Cushioned Heel technique, which does not offer much comfort in walking. So in this regard i propose the solution of 'Automatic Ankle Adjustment for a Prosthetic Leg' where this device need not carry bulky hydraulics or heavy duty springs.

It has an accelerometer which is placed just between the inner and outer arch positions of an original leg. The 'yaw' of this sensor is sent as a ...

The emotional status of the brain is obtained by an EEG node connected to the neuron hub running out from Amygdala, the emotion deciding part of the brain. Electrode positioning at exact location is one of the major tasks. Instead of carrying entire equipment since we require only single node information, the small pulses obtained are modulated and sent wireless to the intelligent system which decodes and analyzes the pulse. The EEG node is placed on scalp where it can obtain pulses of thalamus. These signals are difficult to interpret exactly what they mean. But our requirement is confined to just tracking few emotions. Small research on the person when expressing different emotions and recording the pulse graph which serves ...

TECHNICAL FIELD
1-The present invention relates to a soother apparatus designed to monitor, assist breathing and heal respiratory ailments associated with nasal congestion in obligatory nose breathing new-borns and young infants.
2- This invention is specifically designed to reduce and relieve nasal obstruction by releasing medicated vapours whilst facilitating oral breathing. In addition the respiratory monitor produces a high pitched sound in the event of breathing failure.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
3-New-borns as for the first 4-6 months are obligatory nose breathers. The term obligate can be misleading, since technically infants can breathe through their mouth during certain instances, such as when crying but generally demonstrate a preference for nasal breathing. Infants need to breathe through their nose arises ...

Everybody hurts, but the power to overcome pain fits in your palm. Buzzy is a computer-mouse sized device combining high-frequency/low-amplitude vibration and unique solid-freezing ice packs to physiologically block pain. Initially studied for needle pain, the combination of massage and cold provides direct pain blocking for injuries and itching as well as blocking injection pain. The nerve that transmits pain and itch comes to a final common pathway in the spine with motion and temperature sensations. Overwhelm cold and motion, and in the same way cool water soothes a burn or dentists jiggle a jaw while injecting, pain disappears.

High frequency low amplitude whole body vibration has been found to improve bone formation, tendon healing, and even speed ulcer ...
