This oral biopsy brush is a patent pending technology designed to be used in the oral mucosa to take samples from all over oral epithelium. Thanks to broom form of the main design of the brush, it provides that brush bristles fully contact with the oral epithelium.

Specifically designed for the medical and dental personnel who serve to protect the health of tissues within the oral cavity and to treat the disorders of the related structures, oral biopsy brush may be utilized:

For the healthcare diagnostics purpose of suspicious oral mucosal tissue lesions by general dentists, specialists, general medical practitioners, otorhinolaryngologists, dermatologists and even by healthcare personnel, i.e. oral hygienists;

To evaluate the efficiency of treatment protocols;

During routine ...

Needs Statement: A safe method of reducing hospitalizations for at-risk patients with heart failure in the outpatient setting. The device is a Biphasic furosemide transdermal patch, with coated microneedles. Microneedles are coated in a bolus dose of furosemide (in blue) for immediate release, followed by sustained release of maintenance dose (in green) over 5-7 days. Microneedles increase the bioavailability of furosemide, allowing treatment of exacerbations in the outpatient setting. The patch will be offered across a variety of dose ranges (20-80mg) depending on the patient’s medical needs. The patch will be prescribed and administered in the hospital setting.

Patients presenting to their provider with the primary complaint of a CHF exacerbation requiring diuresis and no additional interventions (such as ...

CareWear is focused on the development and sale of innovative medical devices for wearable light therapy for professional and consumer markets globally. These novel products use patented, breakthrough printed LEDs and Cadmium Free Quantum Dots on micro fabricated flexible substrates to provide a therapeutic light bandage for the purpose of treating pain and accelerating recovery from soft tissue injury. The treatment of acute injury using the CareWear Light Patch can be used in sports to accelerate recovery from injury, return to work following occupational injury, and in post traumatic injury such as falls, vehicular injury, military training and field injury. This accounts for more than 17.1M patients annually in the United States.

CareWear is devoted to making it easier ...

CENTIPEDE
-they never fall-

CENTIPEDE is a different approach to fall prevention. Older people know that one day they will slip and fall. Most live in fear of this, because they have seen the results of their friends falling. Tragically, every second of the day in the states an older adult falls, this is the number one cause of injury and death for older people.

CENTIPEDE can mitigate and stop falls for this endangered group. CENTIPEDE is an active fall-prevention device and the concept is simple. Anyone who has observed a centipede knows the secret to their mobility is redundancy of legs. A centipede with only two or even four legs couldn't make it far.

A little known linear ...

Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of patient deaths in the United States of America; numbering approximately 450,000 deaths in 2016 at a cost of $1.44T or 45% of the total annual cost of healthcare. The root cause of medical mistakes is cognitive overload; which is caused by too much information and too little time to acquire, analyze, apply and adapt it. An information technology (IT) information management solution could provide the error-free cognitive support needed to improve decision-making, maximize care cost-effectiveness, mitigate medical mistakes, optimize case outcomes and accelerate knowledge accrual.

The Cloud Healthcare Appliance Real-Time Solution as a Service (CHARTSaaS)© is such a solution: an Internet cloud-based IT software development environment (SDE) intended for use by ...

Culture patch with monolayer nano-filers on a frame in-vivo like extracellular matrix made of monolayer nanofibers is suited for cell culture and tissue formation. It allows minimizing the exogenous contact and maximizing the uptake rate cells, while the micro-frame and the patch form allow easy handling, easy control of self-organization. Honeycomb frames of different size, shape and elasticity are producible. Nanofibers made of different materials such as gelatin, collagen, PLGA, PCL, PMGI, etc. are also available. The culture patch can be placed in Petri-dish and multi wells for off-ground cell culture. It can also be inserted in Boyden chambers or microfluidic chips. Cells are loaded on the honeycomb frame area and the patch with cells will then be placed ...

Millions of ECG holter examinations are performed every day to filter Cardio-Vascular Diseases. Holters are attached to the patients' chests during a minimum 24 hours period. The results of a medical examination depends not only on accurate measure but also on ordinary user behavior. Most of the patients behave differently under ECG holtering, which leads to non-accurate diagnosis. Existing ECG holter patches are mostly trying to improve pure technology to get the data as accurate as possible but they forget about user experience during the examinations. In my opinion innovative holtering technology should be applied in a user-centered design.

Dab is aimed to minimize medical instrument size by reducing electrode distances. It is recording data with 3 permanent high-quality ...

Healing of wounds for diabetics could be one of the most difficult challenges that diabetes causes. This project aims to help diabetics to heal their wounds using 100% natural herb with low cost. Through using Conyza Canadensis we can extract a variety of chemical compounds that enhance the process of healing and encourage metabolism such as: Flavonoids, Gallic acid, Tannic acid, Monoterpenes. All these can form a very effective medicine that reduces the time for the wound healing- especially that the volatile oil of Conyza Canadensis acts as an astringent. Through experimenting the result compound on bacteria, skin cells and blood samples we have noticed a notable difference between the time of healing of wounds with herbs and without ...

A portable steamer that can turn water to steam in a split second and further help improve coughing and phlegmatic retention problems of lungs.

With the worsening of air pollution, our lungs generate sputum to isolate particles from invading as a self-protection when polluted air is inhaled. The situation resulted in increasingly serious coughing. If sputum stays in lungs, lung disease might occur and even cause death. Also, coughing will affect living and sleeping quality.

To solve the problem induced by sputum, portable inhaling steamer, Ease the Cough, is capable of instantly heating up water and turning it into smaller molecular. Patients’ sputum can be diluted after inhaling such steam to make coughing up phlegm easier.

Patients can adopt ...

I want to create a dream world…I want to make every person and race in the whole wide world equal and united by making all human equally good looking and equally intelligent. For realizing that dream, I have invented a new Electromagnetic Cosmetic Therapy and a gene manipulation technology.

Mitotic Spindles (microtubules attached to the mitotic spindle and to part of the centromere) determine position of divided cells. Two structures called centrosomes move to opposite sides of the cell during this phase and begin building the mitotic spindle. Cell may contain a pair of centrioles (or microtubule organizing centers in plants) both of which are organizational sites for microtubules. Centrioles begin moving to opposite ends of the cell and ...
