This design uses virtual reality (VR) tools to conduct detailed examinations of human melanoma and disease progression and possible treatment. The tests will use a ConfocalVR systems. Instead of viewing cell images as a three-dimensional model on a flat computer screen, clinicians and researchers will be able to project cell images from normal and diseased tissue into a VR space, see detailed images of internal structure and directly interact with the three-dimensional images in virtual reality.

Patients themselves can immerse themselves in the VR space and view the VR images using our tools. ImageJ software free from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is used to convert confocal microscope image stacks into 3D volumetric object files (NIfTI ) that ...

Tests on anchovies show that when plastic is mixed with salt water and begins to disintegrate it releases an odor which is similar to krill. The enticing smell sets off foraging and feeding behaviour in fish, causing them to eat the debris, believing it is food. Previously scientists thought that fish were ingesting tiny particles of plastic by accident when they were hoovering up floating pieces of plankton or krill. But the new study suggests the problem is even more serious because fish are actually attracted to the plastic.

A recent study estimated that nine in 10 of the world’s seabirds now have pieces of plastic in their guts, mainly through eating fish which have ingested plastic. A recent ...

The standards for transformation and transfection for years have been plasmid transfer by conjugate mating, DNA uptake by competent cells, chemical permeation, electroporation, and detergent and liposomal vectors and viral vectors, of bacterial and eukaryotic cells, respectively. The new standards for genetic modification employing such vectors involve CRISPR which causes directed double-strand DNA breaks and homologous recombination/repair (the latter using endogenous cellular processes). Off target changes can occur, although recent efforts have been made by the developers to avoid such untoward effects.

BioSPLICE, BIOSYNTHETIC PLASMID INTEGRATED CAPTURE ELEMENTS, US Patent 8,628,955 B2, Jan. 14, 2014, was designed to provide a new synthetic to biosynthetic vector which avoided these issues and could be used in vivo as well as in ...

Ayurveda is life in case of biomedical. It basically deals with Vatt, Pitta, Kapha. These three together are called tridoshas. They contain lot of information. These are diagnosed through a person's wrist. In today’s technological century what a great idea if person comes to know about presence of heart attack earlier. Required precautions will be taken by the person and not all but some of them can serve better and good life. When a disease is caused it causes imbalance in tridoshas. Thus diagnosis of diseases is nothing but reading wrist pulses. For reading three of them index, middle and first are placed on wrist of patient. Wrist pulse is diagnosing technique from TCM. Out of wrist and fingers ...

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 ...

The Problem
Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent complaints seen in Emergency rooms and outpatient clinics. While most individuals experience impaired motion perceptual cues from a vertigo/dizziness attack for several seconds. As many as 2.6 million Americans with a diagnosis of an inner ear (vestibular) disorder such as Meniere's Disease, Vestibular Migraine, or Mal debarquement syndrome suffer from persistent impairment for several hours. The problem for these individuals is that current rehab and therapeutic solutions available either yield incomplete recovery or produce sedating side-effects. Consequently, they can be forced to spend as much as ¼ of every month dizzy without an effective tool to manage their symptoms and get them back on their feet as quickly as ...

ROSES is a Robotic System for Endovascular Surgery, composed by a console, the master, that can control up to three slaves, and a number of disposables (at least one per each slave) that allows driving guide wires and catheters into the human body, separating the doctor from the patient, in order to eliminate ionized radiations for the doctor.

In particular the system is able to provide very fine motion control during angioplasty, using a single slave and a dedicated disposable. But using two slaves in series, it is possible to drive an initial catheter with the slave closer to the patient, and a guide wire even with movable core with the second slave. Each slave can control three parameters, ...

Assessment of OB/GYN patients finds dissatisfaction in common procedures, with “gentleness” as an arguable unit of measure.

Problem: The pelvic exam is of particular note when it is not considered organic due to size, speed, and weight differentials. Additionally, many patients may have grown accustomed to mobility limitations that do not pose significant danger.

Innovation: The newly designed speculum features an additional component that takes the pressure out of the hands of the device operator and places the responsibility on the device itself. It features a ladder-type ribbed locking expansion component and marked units of measure on the shaft.

Marketability:
1. The pelvic exam is not typically considered an instrument of emergency and there would unlikely be a ...

A pillow embedded with PMMA medical grade optical fibers by a CNC machine I invented back in 1997. I coated the surface of the fabric with a thin film of silicon forming a flexible substrate underneath the pillow case so that a grid of light is formed over the surface. I use an Opti-Coupler I invented last year that responds to WIFI and Bluetooth commands from smart phones to generate light frequencies from IR to UV and pulse UV at 40 Hz through the fibers using a AA size 3.7 VDC Lithium Ion battery. You cannot feel or see any indication of any tech in the pillow until activated. The radiation helps to cure Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and some ...

A practical offering for a pharmacy which wants to eliminate the need to have staff waste what could be productive time greeting a patient, asking for their name, looking up on the pharmacy system if a prescription(s) is ready for pick up, seeking and removing prescriptions from a tub-file, asking the customers address and, or telephone number, etc. and acting as a cashier if necessary. It would make sense to consider liken to what eAnytime® originated, proposed and had approved by state pharmacy boards for pharmacies, an in-wall or least cost patient self-serve bolted to counter interactive-computer SecurShield™ locked medication PickUp™ kiosk.Today pharmacies usually alert customers when a prescription will be ready for pickup and based on studies patients ...
