15075 – Novel non-contact method for healing surface or deep wounds by inducing electric fields by applying time-varying magnetic fields. The directional movement of biological cells in the presence of an applied electric field is known as galvanotaxis or electrotaxis. The majority of experiments related to galvanotaxis over the past two centuries have involved steady electric fields applied... Read More
14834 – An improved device for surgical end-to-end anastomosis, a procedure common in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass Roux-en-Y laparoscopic gastric bypass is regarded as the ‘gold-standard-of-care’ for morbidly obese patients, classified as individuals with a body mass index (BMI) > 40. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a small hole, called an anastomosis, to reconnect the newly created... Read More
15289 – A device to intra-operatively measure varus/valgus, internal/external, and anterior/posterior stability for total knee arthroplasty Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is performed to relieve pain and disability associated with degenerative joint disease. Joint instability remains a leading cause of revision surgery following TKA. During the surgery, indicators of stability such as joint... Read More
37366 – A novel device to reinforce the abstract concept of time to intellectually disabled children, especially those with Down syndrome. Learning and understanding the abstract and intangible concept of time is especially difficult for children with Down Syndrome. This difficulty can cause deep frustration because it affects the family’s daily routine and reduces the child’s independence in... Read More
37584 – A device for separating macromolecules in a solution of macromolecules having different molecular sizes Many clinical and research applications involve separation of specific biological molecules, such as nucleic acids and proteins, for further analysis and characterization. A complex biological system can only be understood after each component has been separately analyzed, and... Read More
14871 – Improving cochlear implants for better quality and understanding of speech in noise There are about 275 million adults globally with moderate to severe hearing loss and 360 million adults with mild hearing loss. The current solutions to allow these people to hear better include hearing aids, hearing loss counseling, cochlear implants, alerting devices, and other communication aids. In... Read More
15141 – The SmartHub is a personal fitness and activity tracking device designed for manual wheelchair users. Fitness tracking technology has boomed in recent years. However, none of the technology that has been sold has been useable by those in wheelchairs. Either these devices rely on total body movement or the algorithms are not adapted for movement in a wheelchair instead of by walking... Read More
