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 ElliptiPod energy-return crutch combines the simplicity and economy of traditional axillary (underarm) crutches with the efficiency and ergonomics of more expensive and mechanically complex alternative designs to provide patients with a distinctively comfortable, stable and energy-conserving mobility aid.

The crutch has four primary components; a straight sturdy shaft of aluminum tubing, an upper-arm cuff, a handgrip and the eponymous elliptical foot. All components are interchangeable to match the size and weight of the patient at the lowest possible cost.

The two-piece aluminum shaft comprises telescoping upper and lower sections. Double push-button locks allow the length to be adjusted.

The cuff at the top of the shaft fits around the upper arm at the thickest part of the biceps. The cuff is ...

Traditionally, orthopedic surgeons have relied upon surgical screws to stabilize bone fractures. However, these screws often need to be removed due to pain and inadequate performances, causing surgical device removal surgeries to account for over 30% of all planned orthopedic surgeries. Screws have protruding heads that make them prone to catching on nearby muscle and nervous tissue, causing immense pain for patients. Additionally, screws occupy a large portion of the medullary canal, impeding bone tissue healing. Screws also often “back out”, or loosen, which requires costly followup surgery to redo them. These concerns would be resolved with our product, FastenPro.

FastenPro fastens a wire perpendicular to the fracture, through the bone, to be secured on either end by stainless ...

Finger Ring!, a hand rehabilitation painting aid designed for children with cerebral palsy, allows them to create 3D paintings, helping them improve hand convulsions and insufficient tension.

It contains a finger cot, an artboard and a pigment box. The finger cot can be stained with colors and support patients to paint. According to the level of patient’s tension, they are given a series of teaching materials, such as surface textures, 3D blocks, bump paintings and story design. With the help of others, patients can carry out finger tension, hand grasp and muscle endurance rehabilitation. It can also help patients with stroke to ...

Our solution is a portable genetic lab that fits in the pocket. Combines mobility, ease of use and speed of analysis with professional amplification and detection of specific DNA and RNA fragments, useful for pathogen or mutation detection. The lab-on-chip analyser in just 15 minutes is capable of 100% detecting the presence of DNA or RNA in almost any biological sample with the lowest currently possible limit - 5 copies of genetic material.

The test material can be, e.g., whole blood, swab, cerebrospinal fluid. Our solutions operate based on the innovative INNAT nucleic acid amplification technology (Isothermal Nucleic Acid Amplification Technology), which is based on the amplification and detection of specific DNA and RNA fragments - the "gold standard" ...

If the stomach problem caused by H. pylori is untreated, it can increase the risk of gastric disorders such as peptic ulcer disease, stomach cancer or gastric lymphoma.

HPTK is a medical kit to detect H. pylori infection. Based on the pH value of CO2 produced by H. pylori with carbon-13 urea reagent after dissolved in water, the users exhale into right/left HPTK breath collection bags, record the color changes of pH indicator before and after swallowing the reagent to compare with the universal color chart. If big difference occurs, further test is required. HPTK can prevent stomach disorders and reduce the consumption of medical ...

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 ...

Problem statement:
Detection and calculation of malaria parasitemia in human blood smear

Introduction:
Malaria represents a serious public health problem for humans and animals worldwide. Malaria is endemic in more than 100 countries while the majority of the cases occurs in tropic countries. Estimation of parasitemia (in stained blood smears) is an important parameter in malaria diagnosis and malaria research; however it is being perform manually since binging, which is a time consuming method. In contrast this study proposes a Python (Open CV) based image processing tool for easy, user friendly, accurate and cost effective calculation of parasitemia. During this process, initially the malaria positive blood smear image was acquired and a Python Code for Image Processing was developed ...

It is said that the main causes of sudden death in elder people are heart failures and risk of falling. Diagnosis and prevention of heart diseases and fall detection is more and more important in our daily life. In addition to increased population growth, online telemedicine systems are useful due to the possibility of timely and efficient healthcare services. The rapid growth in technology has remarkably enhanced the scope of remote health monitoring systems. Loss of consciousness and fall-induced injury is one of the leading problems faced by the elderly. They are the leading cause for the transfer of senior citizens from the comfort of their residence to assisted care environments. They also account for 40% of injury related deaths ...

Spring assisted Knee Brace Technology undergoing testing by the Canadian Armed Forces suggests a range enhancement for E-Trikes. Human rider assist to the electrics of an E-Trike significantly extends the range and only rider fatigue cuts the rider assist advantage short. Spring assisted knee braces specifically designed to capture muscle power at designated locations in the pedal cycle would reduce fatigue by feeding back the stored power via the knee braces.

The sidebar shows the E-Trike which is powered by a 500W BLDC motor. The therapeutic use of the machine allowed an 84 year old to rapidly develop muscle tone after an extended hospital stay through the use of pedal effort assisting the electric power which at the same ...
