Currently, the bags don't have the best design for our back, because the design of those bags was made a long time ago and until now they were keeping the same parameters about where they had been sewn and its points of tension, I mean: the forces are converging and match with our body, directly with our back, shoulders, and neck. The design of the current bags is not the most accurate for our backs and they are very uncomfortable when you have to carry books, some electronics, or very heavy things, especially the mountain bag; or for long periods of time, as school backpacks! My solution is to make a new bag with a new design to help ...

Clinical Motivation: Heart failure, a clinical syndrome resulting in impairment of ventricular filling or the ejection of blood is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality across the world. Left ventricular remodeling, a mechanistic response to myocardial injury, has been shown to underlie the progression to heart failure. As such, sensitive techniques to track the rate and extent of remodeling are necessary to evaluate risk and treatment options on a patient-specific basis. Echocardiography has become the gold standard for assessing the structure and function of the heart. Moreover, recent advancements in both hardware and software have given rise to a relatively new echocardiographic capability: the assessment of regional myocardial deformation through two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography. While this study has ...

By combining hydrogen peroxide fog (h2O2) and eighteen 95 watt UV-C lamps (1,710 watts total) in a sequence therapy, uv-c shadowing is minimized and sanitizing bacteria and fungus is more thorough on hard to reach surfaces. The robot is pre-rogrammed by room size and maintenance personal enter the room number, their name on the control pad for memory history of sanitized rooms. A standard 20 amp wall socket plug to the robot is used with timing of 20 - 40 minutes cycle depending on room size. The combined use of H2O2 and UV-C also attacks the cell structure of bacteria and fungus in multiple therapies to better reduce the bacteria or fungus ability to resist and survive on its ...

Using recently developed UV-C wavelength light emitting diodes (LEDs), a low power, compact, inexpensive device can effectively sanitize any small medical or other instrument (such as stethoscopes, reflex hammers, trauma shears, etc.) to above the 99.9% level. UV-C light in the 265 nanometer wavelength range effectively disrupts the DNA and RNA of common disease causing bacteria and viruses which disables reproduction and therefore eliminates them.

Highly effective sanitization rates can be achieved using low cost, low power LEDs , reflective surfaces, a UV safe enclosure and 5 minutes of exposure. Devices can range in size from wall mounted or counter top units using 120 V power to small rechargeable battery operated units for mobile applications in hospitals or potentially ...

Cycling is a great cardiovascular activity that's generally easy on the joints because it's not weight bearing, although back pain seems to be relatively common among cyclists. According to research, about 68% of people who cycle frequently experience debilitating back pain related to cycling at some point in their lives. Back pain from cycling has a number of causes, mainly: unsuitable bike dimensions and poor sitting posture.

The best way to prevent this problem is purchasing a bike according to one size but this is impractical for the masses of peoples because many people select a new bike based on price point and tend to downplay the importance of the bike's dimensions and ergonomics. Ideally, a bike should be ...

Nearly 300,000 Americans have sustained some form of spinal cord injury (SCI), and effective therapies to promote recovery of neural function are lacking. Our vision is to create an off-the-shelf spinal cord implant to replace the injured tissue.

We used the natural spinal cord architecture as a template to design a scaffold that mimics the intact cord. We chose materials with mechanical properties that are similar to the spinal cord properties in order to allow superior integration. We then used rapid 3D printing technology that can fabricate the implant in one continuous print, rather then layers as being done by common inkjet 3D-printers. The interface between each layer is a mechanically weak area; our method produce a more stable ...

Ever since I saw the 'Hero' Malian migrant who saved a child from Paris balcony building, I was inspired to build a mechanism that can prevent or save peoples who fall down from a building automatically. The best method I could come up with so far is an automatic airbag installed at bottom of buildings on side of the building where there is a window or a balcony which peoples often fall on purpose or not. The detection of a falling person is done by installing closely assembled multiple laser rays installed on each floor of the building in the side where the airbag is fixed. When each laser at each floor detects an object falling it will automatically ...

Shape state analysis offers vital insights. Structures change shape before collapsing. Earthquakes are preceded by shifts in relative locations of monitoring stations. Genetic abnormalities can be detected and quantified from locations of anatomical features recognizable to specialists. These and other applications rely on comparing arrays of physical landmarks. Applicable arrays can be in any regular or irregular shape as long as 1) the landmarks reasonably characterize the entity being scrutinized, 2) the representation is uniform for all samples (frames, patients, ...), 3) some minimal degree of consistency holds. In a medical application the second condition requires a complete landmark set for every patient and, though groups can contain all ages/sizes/races ... and substantial abnormalities may be present, the third ...

ViaTechMD has invented and developed the first and only device-based treatment for various conditions known to contribute to preterm birth (“PTB”).

PTB is a growing global healthcare crisis and is the leading cause of infant death and morbidity within the first months of life. Nearly 3,000 babies die EACH DAY as a consequence of PTB which is also recognized as one of the most significant contributing factors in several lifelong crippling diseases including autism, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, various respiratory ailments, and other cognitive and learning disabilities.

The latest publication from WHO (2018) reports that in 2014, approximately 10.6% of all live births globally were preterm. Every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm (before 37 completed ...

HuPoTest was discovered incidentally and developed for over 50 years by testing face to face more than 1000 persons under test (PUT). In fact, it is the calibration of the PUT mental timer by using a standard stopwatch and original operating procedure. Timer and mentality are strongly interconnected defining each other, so a good mentality is based on stable and well tuned timer and both of them define the overall health. PUT has to count successively xj = 5, 10, 15 and 20 seconds several times each (recommended i =1 to 8) by following several compulsory steps. The measured values, yij, obtained on the standard stopwatch are retrieved and compared with standard values xj. Finally, it results a series ...
