Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:Multifunctional Syringe (Protected Healthcare Workers)This is a medical device, is a syringe, which solves the problem of the danger of infecting patients and health care workers with diseases that can be transmitted by injecting with an already used needle. With this new syringe model, you can apply the drug enormously quickly while protecting yourself. It is intended for a single use with only one use practically possible. The dosage is much easier because it has two measuring scales. The volume is 15ml but can be changed as needed is it can be produced in different sizes. The disinfection mechanism is in the syringe, and one of the novelties is that the needle has no contact with the healthcare worker applying the therapy.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel conic cannula for spine cement injectionNovel conic cannula for homogeneous injection of bone cements in the spine have been patented and developed. The new design is especially indicated for the injection of ceramic-based bone cements because the pressure drop developed along the cannula minimizes bone cement’s press filtering. Partners to further develop the technology and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New orthotic glove designed to amplify hand strength An actuated hand exoskeleton useful for old or disabled people who have not enough strength in their hands has been patented and developed. 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.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Biocompatible self-generating cell stimulatorCSIC through the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, has developed a device based on nanogenerators for electrical cells stimulation without the need of electrodes or bulky devices. The device is biocompatible and, among its multiple applications, is able to actuate in medical prostheses as enhancer of cellular growth and proliferation, which permits an early lesion recovery (such as a fracture or wound). Industrial partners dedicated to the development of medical devices for cells stimulation, in particular, focused onto therapeutic treatments of non-healing wounds, are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

The high quality, definition and fidelity between the images are fundamental requisites for a correct interpretation and reliability in the use of these results in researches and aid for the construction of clinical diagnosis. However, errors in the radiographic technique application, mainly errors of angulation, are often reported. With this reflection in mind, research accomplished by the Faculty of Odontology developed an innovative standard device for dental radiography.

This walker includes a guide for the leg together with an electronic system, that improves the user of manoeuvrability allowing the configuration of basic actions. This invention is part of the "Loyalty Technological Program," which has been designed by the research group to raise funds for the development and adaptation of technical aids that improve the quality of people life with motor impairments. The group is looking for collaboration agreements with institutions or companies that want to be part of the "Loyalty Technological Program" http://padrinotecnologico.org/proyectos/instituciones/ Moreover, the group is interested in reaching license, collaboration, manufacturing or commercial agreements with technical assistance with orthopaedics, medical equipment, and health technology companies. Other kind of institutions interested in sponsoring this invention are also welcome.

Given a new case, automated tools will enable the extraction of a previous case of the patient, based on which the current case can be analyzed more in context, and the abnormalities can be more accurately detected, segmented and measured.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Iron oxide nanoparticles (IOP) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other inflammatory conditionsA novel approach for the treatment of AMI has been developed using IOPs. IOPs, when injected into the infarcted myocardium, lead to improved heart function after MI. IOPs activate anti-inflammatory macrophages and thus promote tissue healing and repair and prevent myocardial remodeling and dysfunction. Potential Applications IOPs can be used to treat AMI and other inflammatory conditions associated with pro-inflammatory activated macrophages and to promote tissue healing and repair. Advantages ? IOPs are nontoxic ? IOPs are FDA approved for use in humans for MRI imaging Stage In vivo studies in mouse and rat models of MI and heart failure Project ID : 10-2011-247
