The present invention relates to design and fabrication of new supports; which are in fact polymer-metal composite supports for finger and foot. They are made of a soft polymer with inserted sheets of aluminum, steel or carbon-fiber. The optimal models are strong, and allow for size and finger position adjustments, and can be used for patients who already have distorted fingers and are working on them to regain some functions. These accommodations have not been addressed by any current finger or foot support and currently, there are no support in the market which can accommodate these advantages. The available supports are made of rough fabrics/Velcro straps, or thermoset plastics without any flexibility. Also, most of them cannot be used ...

Design of user-friendly gripper to grasp both symmetrical and non-symmetrical complex geometrical objects. The proposed design is modeled, analyzed and simulated using Solidworks and Ansys software. The fabrication of the gripper should be using 3D printing technology with PLA. The operation and control will be carried out by using PLC, Pi boards and pneumatic technologies which enables gesture control, programming control and wireless control. The fabricated gripper will be tested with different objects for different applications. Performance results are properly validated by conducting different experiment ...

Diabetes is a disease that affects 371 million people worldwide, and 187 million of them do not even know they have the disease. In 2010, working-age adults made an average of 3.9 visits to doctors, nurses or other medical providers, down from 4.8 in 2001, according to a report released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Among those with at least one such visit, the average number of visits also declined, from 6.4. to 5.4 over the period.

Diabetes test on the Go is a kiosk which allows anyone to test their blood glucose any time of the day to see if they are in the early stages of diabetes which is prediabetic.

My idea will make people aware of ...

Today, the demand for sustainable energy is crucial for tomorrow’s bright future. Tokamak-style machines claim to be futuristic superconducting batteries but, no perfected model has been achieved. The biggest limitation they’ll have when perfected is being stationary. Deep space exploration has 3-major challenges that need answers first; electrical power, shielding protection, and cheap reliable propulsion. My diamagnetic field engine (DFE) transforms into a superconductor to create power, protection, and propulsion. DFEs use 2-diamagnetic field capacitors (DFC), 1-NDFC and 1-SDFC. Each DFC has 6 magnetized pieces; 1-primary (piston) and 5-barrier (1-release plate and 4-quarter circular segments). If the piston’s internal dipole is north, then it’s a NDFC, if the south dipole’s inside then it’s a SDFC. DFEs are supported by ...

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 ...

The advent of digital cameras have rendered many fine, quality film based 35 m/m cameras obsolete. Many consumers and photographers still own these film based camera’s and would desire to continue using them
 
The re-useable digital camera adapter is an innovative opto-electronic consumer product device that replaces 35 m/m film and can be inserted into conventional film based 35 m/m camera allowing the camera to capture and store images in a digital rather than film based format. The market for a device that allows a standard 35 m/m camera to capture images in digital format could be huge. Purchasing such a device would be a cost effective way to preserve and elongate the life of these fine legacy ...

The problem of the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is one of the topics discussed almost daily because the effects on the climate are of daily discussion. It is time to move on to remedies. In practice, remedying the problem of excess CO2 with recapture, using devices installed directly in new-generation cars. If my idea comes to practical implementation, hundreds of millions of electric cars will take over CO2 recapture in the near future. The car will turn from pollution to cleanliness of the atmosphere. The direct capture technologies from the atmosphere are almost mature and in my project they must be distributed to the cars to act on a large scale. Once the task of CO2 ...

Renewable energy solutions come with their own problems, and managing the trade-offs will determine the success of a technology. Especially, with a desire to maintain and expand our modern standards of living. The diffuse, intermittent, and unpredictable nature of wind and solar energy has led to research and development in how to store the electrical energy generated. However, a partial solution to the intermittent nature of wind and solar energy is to transition our more modern refrigeration systems back to ice boxes.

Storing electrical energy, in cars or wall batteries, could be a partial solution to the intermittent and unpredictable nature of wind and solar energy. The battery storage solution comes with its own set of problems, to include ...

This magnetic lifter drone robotic aircraft.

This Small drone aircraft is based on WW2 designs used by the German Military that were recovered during The 1947 project Operation High Jump . In that time period computer science was not available as it is today which was the Reason the German militrary had limited sucess with as it was very difficult for the pilots to manually fly these devices which were driven by a series of Gyroscopes causing Ionic lift not unlike what is currently in use by the B 2 Bomber AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL military aircraft which also use jet engines to assist in the propulsion system . A computer conrtolled Drone using this propulsion system could be used ...

This drone has 4 new parts that can increase the load capacity and maneuverability many times:
• Turbopropellers are propellers with turbo expander in the center.
• Lifting body, which increases the load capacity by about 30%
• Vertical flaps that turn the resistance of the motor holders into useful work.
• Reactive cuts on the wings, which increase the load capacity and speed.

1. As is known, 1/4 central part of the propeller located above the motor does not perform work. Turboexpander makes this part work very efficiently. They can be of two types:
The first version is intended only for small drones and it has only central blades. They push air out of the middle and create ...
