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.

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.

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.

Universidad de Cádiz posted this:Three-Dimensional Acoustic LensMoreover, we present a lens prototype in audible frequencies to demonstrate the validity of the modelling method. The applicability ranges from medical (non-incisive surgery, ecography, physiotherapy) and ultrasonics in general, to environmental acoustics. The invention consists on the description of a new method to obtain acoustic lenses in different frequency ranges (audible and ultrasounds). The acoustic lenses are formed by an array of concentric rings in such a way that they have the ability to collimate an acoustic beam. The correct arrangement of the rings is calculated in a two-dimensional space by means an inverse design algorithm (Genetic algorithms). The conventional acoustic lenses are based on the curvature of its surface for focusing sound thanks to the phenomenon of diffraction. By contrast, the lenses presented here are based on reflection of sound by elements (rings) scatterers distributed properly. This allows more margin for improvement in design and operation. For example, here we describe the operation of a multi-focus lens capable of changing the focal length depending on the sound frequency. Furthermore, we present an example of operation of such a lens type at the audible frequency of 2200 Hz that validates the proposal.

It is ap-proximately 1.5 times greater than the friction produced by conventional mesh systems or with titanium or cobalt-chromium spherules, achieving an excel-lent primary stability of the implant.
