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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
