Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:A wireless Augmentative and Alternative Communication SystemThis new system is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication system (AAC) that allows people with language disabilities to communicate through icons without the intervention of external support. The design is formed by two low-cost separated blocks (selection of the symbols and voice reproduction) with a wireless communication, so it facilitates its scalability, to adapt it to user's vocabulary, and mechanical and intellectual skills. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:High resolution non-contact measurement of biophysical parametersA prototype of a novel laser-based displacement sensor enabling subnanometric resolution measurements of biophysical parameters has been developed. The system is in addition extremely compact (few cm3), robust and non-contact. Partners to further develop the current prototype, to pursue novel applications, and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

This new technology allows amplification of hand-grasping forcThe Challenge Partial hand disability represents a serious problem for many people, who although they have mobility and sensitivity in their hands, are not strong enough to hold a simple mug. For example, people with diseases, elderly or people who have suffered a traffic accident. In order to improve their quality of life, the design of devices such as the exoskeleton presented is so important. Currently, there are some similar devices nevertheless most of them need external energy and sophisticated drive mechanisms, complicating their use and maintenance.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Simple, comfortable hand-held patient interface for fast ECG measurementsA simple, comfortable patient interface that reduces the time to obtain the ECG (lead I) and minimises external differential-mode interference on it has been patented and developed. The device uses dual dry electrodes placed on a mechanical support that the patient touches, holds or grasps, and can be easily applied wherever a fast ECG measurement can be of interest. A laboratory prototype is available that can be wireless connected to any convenient user interface such as a PC. Partners to further develop the device and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:In vitro method for designing a customized therapy for a subject with Parkinson´sDisease CSIC, Université de Lille, INSERM and Centre Hospitalier Regional Universitaire de Lille have developed an in vitro method for designing a customized therapy for a Parkinson ‘s Disease patient through the determination of the presence of a centrosomal deficit from that subject and therefore susceptible to receive a therapy based on a LRRK2 inhibitor. LRRK2 is a key player for the development of both genetic and sporadic forms of Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Industrial partners from pharmaceutical industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Method for diagnosing Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT)Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare and genetic disease in which a disorder in angiogenesis exists. A new method for the molecular diagnosis of this disease has been developed. It is based on the quantification of a set of microRNAs (miRNAs) transported by plasma exosomes, and in addition, this set allows diagnosing different variants of the disease. This new method has the advantage of providing new biomarkers that allow a rapid and reliable diagnosis of HHT, since the current methods are not valid for all the patients affected with HHT.

Emotongue is not a simple app, it is the app that everybody was looking for! It had been designed for a research project carried out in the Department of Sciences of Education of the University of Alcalá, Spain, but due to its features and the great benefits it has, now it is available for every customer interested in improving his/her resources for managing his/her emotional world. Emotongue has been created for helping people to know their emotions, connect with them and learn how to manage them. The app is a tool easy to use, with a colored and dynamic design. It sends the user 5 notifications per day, and she/he has at his/her disposal 2 hours to answer each notification either by a written message or by an audio. The app is available in every country in which people speak English and/or Spanish. An improved version of the app could send users a feedback about their evolution in their management of their emotions and their use of the app. A part from the app, the authors could offer a service to companies interested in it, by creating courses about emotional management, designed according to the company’s needs, something very difficult to find in the trade market.
