Umbilical Care is an L-shaped silicon cord clip used to test the bacterial infection at baby’s cord. Via the “histamine testing sticker” attached on a hollow chamber of Umbilical Care which can react with the histamine produced by bacteria, medical staff and mothers can deal with cord infection when an orange sad face is shown. It is an efficient way to prevent infection and reduce the staff’s burden. The L-shaped design allows staff to measure the safety distance to chip on, which makes the operation efficient and makes extra room for Umbilical Arterial Catheter operation in the ...

This approach describes a technique to be able to transfer large amounts of electrical energy from a stable platform to a high velocity moving vehicle in a near vacuum environment with no physical contact. In some of the new Hyperloop type transport systems, large amounts of energy will need to be stored (batteries) or created (fuel based motors) to power the on-board functions required for the operation of the transport Hyperloop type vehicles. These ‘on-board’ functions include magnetic levitation, air compressors and pumping systems, lighting, heating and cooling of passenger volumes, control electronics, etc. The existing approaches (diesel engines, batteries, etc.) are a large factor in the ‘empty’ mass and volume of the vehicle, which means the amount of ...

SnotRocket is a unique syringe-type aspirator that is more powerful, more precisely controllable, more sanitary, more rugged, more convenient and more discreet than any other pediatric nasal aspirator.

The simpler version has only two parts, both injection-molded plastic -- a rocket-shaped outer cylinder and a matching plunger with fin-like finger-grips. A spring-loaded version would require only two more parts, the spring and a snap-on base cap.

Various commonly available thermoplastic polymers that are especially slippery are preferable. If the parts are made to be very close-fitting then no seals are necessary. Otherwise, a stock o-ring can easily be incorporated into the design.

The cylinder is open at both ends. The working end, the tip of the smoothly rounded “nosecone,” gently seats against ...

My idea consists of using the new small and powerful magnets to hold dentures in place securely without the use of any denture adhesive. There are many companies that make these magnets in many different sizes, down to 1/4" diameter and less. This method could easily free thousands if not millions of people from using any adhesives at all in the near future. These tiny magnets would revolutionize the dental industry. The market for this innovation is phenomenal. The cone and crater design would be finalized by trial and error to resolution in a smooth transition design that would be easy to install and remove.
