Universitat de Lleida posted this:LapC-FORCE: Surgical device to improve laparotomy closure for incisional hernia preventionA multidisciplinary team involving doctors and engineers developed a medical device to cover the surgeons’ need at the moment of closing a laparotomy. With real-time information on force and distance, surgeons may decide the most appropriate closure technique and materials to be used for each single patient for reducing the laparotomy’s closing force and therefore, to prevent incisional hernias. We currently have a prototype medical device that measures the closing force between edges in a laparotomy. It was designed and tested in non-regulatory preclinical trials using pigs. We are looking for an industrial partner with expertise in the sector of medical devices willing to add in its product pipeline a new surgery device to assist surgeons during a laparotomy. The type of partner sought is mainly for regulatory development and commercialization under a technology license agreement.
University of Granada (OTRI) posted this:Artificial biomaterials for its use as stiffness membranes with controlled elasticityScientists from the University of Granada and the Andalusian Health Service have developed through tissue engineering a biomaterial, which can be used for fabricating artificial tissue and membranes which stiffness and elasticity can be controlled. One of its main advantages is that it can be used for substituting tissues or organs damaged because of infectious, inflammatory or degenerative processes, or physical or chemical damages.

In such processes, it is important to obtain parameters of water quality, in order not to interfere with chemical reaction results. In this regard, this invention shows chemical sensors, which are used to measure pH in liquid medium, organized on a substrate where there is a hole through which the sensor comes into contact with the liquid medium whose purpose is to know the liquid’s chemical properties. In addition, this invention also introduces a method of manufacturing chemical sensor in which chip is electrically connected to the substrate by welding.

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Production of briquettes for energy recovery of furniture waste with polyurethane foamsThe Research Group "Waste, energy, environment and nanotechnology" (WEEN) from the University of Alicante has developed a new compact material and a production process of briquettes of furniture waste. This process makes it possible to carry out the management and the energy recovery of this waste, avoiding the environmental problems associated with its landfilling and also making it easier to transport, handle and store. The briquettes obtained, show physicochemical characteristics similar to the conventional and they have a high energy density being able to be used as fuel for thermal power plants or industrial boilers. Companies in the waste treatment sector and the furniture industry that are interested in commercial exploitation of this technology through licensing agreements and / or technical cooperation are sought.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Cloud System for Electronic Receipt ManagementThe industrial computer network research group (I2RC) from the University of Alicante has developed a Cloud system for automatic generation and management of receipts. The system can easily be integrated into the points of sale of the company and allows scanning, storing and transmitting receipts between devices and the cloud according to the safety standards of digital signature and payment. With this technology, it is not necessary print receipts. The management of the receipts from sales may be made ubiquitously over the Internet, both by customers and by the firms. In addition, the system allows the implementation of applications and analysis tools that improve competitiveness and create opportunities for exploitation and commercial development.

The emitter consists in a plurality of SiC barriers which are highly close and similar and which axes are parallel therebetween, formed by self-alignment with an equidistant separation. The operation of the device at low voltage is useful for obtaining an efficient emission, which results from the quantic mechanical tunneling between the barriers of the electrons injected from the cathode contact.
