Innovation: The Mobility Assist (http://www.biodex.com/mobilityassist and http://www.mobilityassist.net) is a multifunctional Sit-to-Stand (STS) and ambulation therapy device invented at Stony Brook University and licensed to Biodex Medical Systems for commercialization. The technology behind the device include planar four-bar and six-bar linkage systems that emulate the natural kinematics of human body during the STS motion (six-bar patent is granted, while the four-bar is pending).
Current state of the art devices include wheelchairs, walkers, standing frames and walking frames, all of which are limited to only one aspect of mobility. The Mobility Assist is the first to encompass in one device the ...
These contact lenses featuring grooves in iris region, on back side of the lens, help to retain healthy state of corneal surface and so to prolong the contact lens wearing without irritation mainly in sensitive patients.
These lenses collect into grooves during wearing the corneal surface microbiome of user when the microbiome is healthy – when bacteria on ocular surface are in homeostatic state, i. e. the present bacteria species are balanced. After all day wear, user doesn´t clean these lenses with the standard solution, but stores the lenses dry in special clean box. User has several pairs of ...
Early detection of diseases increases the chances of treatment significantly. However, regular check-ups can be time-consuming and costly especially in developing countries. This makes Point of Care (PoC) diagnostics very plausible. One commonly used test is ELISA. It incorporates several steps. The blood sample is first introduced into the test well where antigens of the disease are immobilised. If the person is infected, antibodies are present and bind to the immobilised antigens. Second, a buffer solution is used to wash away any unbound antibodies. Third, enzyme-linked antibodies are introduced into the well. They bind to the primary antibodies ...

In the United States, about 48 million people are deaf or hard of hearing. These numbers are expected to double in US adults alone by 2060. The current way to serve this community includes expensive hearing aids, cochlear implants, or microphones that are clipped on, worn on the speaker’s head, or passed around. These devices manipulate sound, to compensate for hearing loss.
The benefit of helping people see to hear – When we lose one of our senses, those remaining become more powerful. How can we use these ‘superpowers’ to our advantage? Through our patent pending technology, locating sound ...
The main aim of developing this device is to provide drug free therapy for insomnia without any side effects and in cost effective manner.
1. To develop a device to generate sleep inducing stimuli such as audio, visual and acupressure.
2. To provide audio-visual and acupressure (AVT) stimuli to insomniac patients to sleep before.
3. Validation using Polysomnographic study.
Insomnia is condition with difficulty initiating sleep difficulty in maintaining sleep, characterized by frequent awakenings or problems returning to sleep after awakenings. It may result in an increased risk of motor vehicle collisions, as well as ...
This project aims to provide an effective and easier way to access history of medical prescriptions by patients with minimum effort. It has the following advantages:
– Ease of viewing the history of medical prescription.
– Very reliable (can receive messages even if the app is not on).
– Records prescription history.
The nearest app we can think of is Practo application but it does not have any features of storing prescription it can only fix appointment with doctor. Our project is a novel approach which will create an efficient method for storing the prescription details for reference in future. It ...
Application / Market Need: Leech Therapy is a post-surgical treatment that uses biological leeches to reintroduce or improve circulation to localized regions of congested tissue that are at an elevated risk of necrosis. The most common need for leech therapy occurs from skin grafts for skin cancer and burn victims; totaling in around 35,660 skin cancer and burn victims per year in the USA only; and reattachment of amputated digits, accounting for around 300 per year. If this therapy is used, 70% - 80% of tissue flaps that otherwise would have failed, are salvaged.
Problem Statement: The problem with Leech ...
Epitech addresses the problem of detecting non-convulsive (no muscle contraction) epileptic generalized seizures, which is a neglected and unutilized market segment. Approximately 1,650,000 people have generalized epilepsy in the U.S. Absence epilepsy is used as representative for non-convulsive seizures, as all absence seizures are characterized by subtle or no movements.
In the U.S. approximately 125,000 children have absence epilepsy. Absence seizures are hard to detect, because the child becomes absent, which can look like daydreaming or other normal behavior. The child can have up to 200 seizures a day, lasting from 2-50 seconds.
The current ...

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing over 800,000 a year (1 in 3 deaths). Heart attacks are an unpredictable emergency situation which is difficult to monitor and predict before permanent damage occurs. Once a patient is at the hospital symptoms may have subsided, and doctors are at a disadvantage in gathering pre-event data. For these reasons, people with suspected heart problems should monitor their ECG and other vital signs daily. Recording and saving this data is of significant diagnostic value in helping to diagnose and prevent future heart attacks.
The “Portable ...
