This is a device for use by people of advanced age, and patients who are being rehabilitated, who lose (or are liable to lose) their balance while standing up or walking. It consists of a basic wheelchair of the standard type with large wheels which the user may self-operate if possible. It is modified such that when the user gets up, the seat underneath him moves out of the way to enable him (or her, hereinafter) to walk with his hands on the side arms of the wheelchair or a swing-bar in front. If the user wishes to rest out of fatigue or dizziness, or if he collapses during the walking, the mechanism automatically swings back the seat portion ...

Treatment of skin malignancies that are resistant to medication, such as super bug or skin cancer, via direct current voltage surrounding the malignancy and center electrode on surface of malignancy, elevating the temperature as the current travels through the root structure to the center electrode.

Description: Place a stainless steel washer of sufficient inside diameter size to surround the malignancy with a gap of at least 3mm per side where the inside of the washer exceeds the size of the malignancy. This washer has an attached pin for electrical connection that is laser welded or other form of welding. The (-) of the power supply or battery is connected to this pin / washer. An additional center rounded head ...

It is too hard to diagnose a patient who just arrived at a hospital. While diagnostic tests are carried by different people, at times the situation becomes life critical. And, most of the time the big picture about the patient is not clear to the doctors.

I'm thinking of creating a bed for patients which can show diagnostic details on a screen connected to the patient's bed. This screen is capable of showing ultrasound, MRI & x-ray images. And find anomalies in diagnostic images which can help doctors in speeding up treatment of patient.

Currently, different devices are available that show one set of information at a time, 2with no correlation among them. Hence, leaving everything on the doctor. ...

There are few hospital meals that provide a special set in response to the patients’ symptoms. Smart Dietitian provides an exclusive diet caring system for inpatients, including smart dining plate and APP AI. Inpatients can easily know what kind of nutrition is needed through the APP, and it is connected to the diet supply system in the hospital. AI can make diet recommendations based on the patient’s symptoms and the doctor’s suggestions. Together with the smart dining plant, patients can intake different portions of foods according to the color distribution on the plate to achieve a healthy diet.  Caterers can also use Smart Dietitian to prepare meals for patients in bed in a short time, reducing the medical personnel’s’ ...

Of the more than 750,000 U.S. surgical patients annually, approximately 20% experience complicated seromas requiring painful and costly interventions such as aspirations, which add more than a $1 billion burden to the U.S. healthcare system.

The current standard of post-surgical care is manually operated closed-suction systems, such as Jackson-Pratt (JP) drains or Hemovacs, which are meant to draw fluid out with manual suction generated by a flexible, suction bulb attached to the end of the drain. Surgical drains are worn by patients anywhere from days to several months depending on the self-reported fluid volume. The inability of the flexible suction bulb to generate continuous suction is a major factor in prolonged drain indwelling times which increases opportunities for complications. ...

Stroke survivors might suffer from different symptoms such as aphasia that is loss of ability to understand or express speech, and dysphagia that is difficulty or discomfort in swallowing. Proper therapies can alleviate these symptoms. Tracking the patients’ improvement in an accurate and continuous manner would provide important feedback for therapeutic development. Currently, clinicians use voice recorder to measure the patient's speech quality, and large desktop instruments to monitor the patient's swallowing ability.

However, these techniques have multiple limitations. For the voice recorder, the quality and accuracy of the measurement can be easily affected by ambient noise of the measuring environment. Identifying the specific subject’s speech requires expensive labors and computations. The desktop instruments for swallowing measurements are cumbersome ...

Problem
Worldwide, an estimated 18 million people die annually due to lack of or inadequate safe surgical care. Yet in austere settings, providing safe surgery is challenging: 1) nonsterile facilities result in high patient infection rates of 15% and above 2) bodily fluid splashes breach the limited personal protective equipment to infect surgical providers, with the chronic epidemic of 85,000 annual provider infections, highlighted by the Ebola crisis, and 3) surgical capacity relies on burdensome supply chains while teams must be as agile as possible.

The old paradigm of safe surgery was to protect entire rooms, which inspired bulky operating facilities in buildings, tents, trailers, trucks, and semi-portable ventilation systems, which all are hard to transport to austere settings, ...

How it works: The Simbodie PRO is an operable, artificial ‘patient’ that provides medical educators with a high fidelity, adaptable, safe, tether-less full-body manikin that can deliver surgical training opportunities in austere emergency training environments. The Simbodie PRO can be cut open, operated on and sutured back together again, all using standard surgical equipment and is capable of recreating psychologically immersive surgical scenarios and invasive treatments, previously only seen in emergency situations and on the operating table during live surgery.

What makes our idea novel: Our synthetic living patient, the ‘Simbodie PRO’, was created by an interdisciplinary research and development team including designers, scientists, clinicians and surgeons from across the UK. To create these surrogates we used medical imaging ...

We have invented a non-invasive sensor capable of identifying the unique gait signatures of cannabis and alcohol impaired subjects as well as those of Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries, Alzheimer's syndrome and related conditions. Moreover, by employing proprietary sensor data processing algorithms, the measured gait data can be evaluated in real time to provide warnings to clinical patients of impending falls.

Although gait assessment instruments have been demonstrated in the past, our invention can analyze gait measurements in real time so as to recognize signature gait patterns of specific clinical conditions. It can therefore be used as a screening tool for early detection of a wide variety of neurological conditions before their symptoms become overtly manifest. We ...

virtual healing, virtual psychologist, virtual filling with energy, virtual religion.

A device that can change people for the better. Every person on the planet Earth has a choice, which way to go, but not everyone knows about it, they live in their little world.

I developed a unique idea that can be translated into reality. The essence of the idea: a person wears glasses or a helmet, it all depends on the method of work, visualization is launched, he is greeted by the image (silhouette of the energy body), who asks if you are ready to be healed, think well at the soul level, and press the continue key. The image of the healer of the psychologist, in a ...
