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 ...

The occurrence of wounds or deep injuries in patients located in very distant places, places in conflict or even, in outer space, where the transportation of the patient can be very complicated or it can take days to carry the patient to an attention place, generates risk for lives of people located in these places or circumstances.

In this context, it is necessary to stop the bleeding, protect the wound or injury and provide a way for the beginning of the tissue repair from the moment the treatment is started. This implies that, in a device, it is necessary to include a solution for hemostasis, providing support at the cellular level for tissue growth and initiation of repair through ...

Certs U is a mobile app and web-based database that houses a plethora of certifications held by personnel in the medical profession and beyond.

My story and experience is not limited to DeOnte Taylor. Working in the medical profession is very rewarding, it is impactful, it comes with heartache and pain when you lose a patient, or you console a hurting family, or simply have to work through unforgiving moments on any given day. Having the additional weight and worry to keep track of my four certifications has been overwhelming. My mind and focus is on providing excellent care. In sharing my dilemma with colleagues I learned that they had similar issues and frustrations. For that reason Certs U became ...

MeRoar is designed to replace the mirror.

Girls and women have been forced to put up with the most embarrassing way to get examined by their OBGNY doctors. Many have used a mirror for self examination, but that is not sufficient.

MeRoar is meant to play on the word “mirror” but updated to give girls/women the total ability to examine themselves.

MeRoar empowers girls/women to maintain their privacy and eliminate the need for routine examinations, help maintain their dignity and keep control of their bodies away from politicians.

The device is simple to use. MeRoar is made up of a transparent speculum that is the ...

The present invention provides an improved vascular occlusion device and an associated surgical method which allows for primary treatment of saccular intracranial or peripheral aneurysms. Two covered or uncovered interlocking or intertwined helical devices may be assembled within the aneurysm sac to generate aneurysm occlusion and thereby sparing the parent vessel. Obliteration of the aneurysm sac may alternatively be accomplished with a single modified expanding occlusion device, which is tapered at both ends, in essence exhibiting a tapering tubular corkscrew design along both the leading and trailing ends of the occlusive device, thereby approximating a spheroid or ellipsoid shape typical of an aneurysm sac. The device outer wall for this purpose could be uncovered, covered with a microporous membrane, ...

Research Abstract:

Continuous monitoring of the central blood pressure waveform from deeply embedded vessels such as the carotid artery and jugular vein has clinical value for the prediction of all-cause cardiovascular mortality. However, existing non-invasive approaches, including photoplethysmography and tonometry, only enable access to the superficial peripheral vasculature. Although current ultrasonic technologies allow non-invasive deep tissue observation, unstable coupling with the tissue surface resulting from the bulkiness and rigidity of conventional ultrasound probes introduces usability constraints. Here, we describe the design and operation of an ultrasonic device that is conformal to the skin and capable of capturing blood pressure waveforms at deeply embedded arterial and venous sites. The wearable device is ultrathin (240 μm) and stretchable (with strains up to ...

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 ...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleeping disorder characterized by frequent occurrence of upper airway collapse during sleep. Its effect on sleep quality and daytime fatigue and sleepiness are widely acknowledged. Obstructive sleep apnea is also being recognized as an autonomous risk factor for various medical disorders, including systemic hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and abnormal glucose metabolism. Even after huge advancements in our understanding of the origin and clinical aftermath of the disorder, a majority of those affected remain undiagnosed.

The current most commonly used technique for OSA diagnosis is “Polysomnography,” wherein the patient has to spend the night at sleep laboratory. It’s a cumbersome process in which a number of electrodes are connected to various parts of the ...

We introduce a low-cost pipette tip-based ELISA platform “ELISA in a Tip” as a next generation assay tool with lower cost, better sensitivity, shorter time, low sample and reagent volumes than traditional ELISA. Our platform could serve as a simple microfluidic adaptor that encourages to blend microfluidic advancement, multiplexing and smartphone integration with widely practiced gold standard ELISA without need for major overhaul of current infrastructure in hospitals and testing laboratories.

Pipette-tip adapters represent the first engineering advancement in decades-old well established diagnostic technique "ELISA." Tips were produced using a desktop 3D printer and were designed to fit most commercially available bench-top pipettes. Unlike ELISA which require extensive training and specialized technicians, pipette-tip ELISA users needs to know basic ...

RBTT is an all-in-one blood test product from blood collection, buffer mixture, blood test strip to final interpretation. It improves the blood test strips, simplifies the process and is attached to the patient, allowing the healthcare staff to quickly determine the blood group for the patient requires emergency transfusion. Based on the utility of blood test strip and buffer solution, RBTT visualizes blood group with color and symbols to provide a simple interface, letting the users operate and interpret quickly. Extracting blood via hollow microneedles makes the workflow easier, bringing painless blood extraction experience to ...
