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:Tantalum foams for orthopaedic applicationsA method for obtaining Tantalum (Ta) foams through the powder metallurgy technique for trabecular bone implants has been patented and developed. Partners to further develop the system and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.
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 an 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 license agreement.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:New preparation method of silver nanoparticles suspension and silver nanoparticles suspension for medical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical application.Subject of this offer is the preparation method of silver nanoparticles suspension by reduction of silver salt by using reducing agent of natural origin and in the presence of a stabilizer. In this method, the following reducing agents are used apiproduct or extract of amber. The obtained nanoparticles can be applied in various industries, but the largest future is in the medical area, and as ingredient in cosmetic compositions due to the presence of non-toxic ingredients.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:Synthetic bone substitute with antimicrobial properties (antibacterial and antifungal).The offered product is a material used for reconstruction of skeletal system bone with long-term antimicrobial operation, in contrast to the pure hydroxyapatite most widely used in regenerative medicine. The resulting materials can be designed in many industries, but the emphasis is mainly focused on medical, dental and pharmaceutical applications.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Walker for the mobility of people with motor disability.A research group from the Signal Theory and Communications Department of Alcalá University has developed a disability walker for improving the mobility of people with motor disability. 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.

Biomedicine and Biotechnology Center - Leipzig University posted this:Peptide for Titanium and Biomaterial Surface Coating for Enhanced OsseointegrationOur research involves the modification of a recently patented molecule that contains L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) and other bonding peptides to increase osseointegration on metal surfaces, particularly titanium. Lab results show that when coated with this molecule, titanium surfaces showed increased signs of bio-compatibility, which is backed up by published scientific research. The technology has the potential of improving osteosynthesis and orthopedic implants, as well as many other types of surgical implants. The BBZ is looking for licensing, joint R&D, or ownership opportunities regarding this technology.
