Compact Mechanical Syringe Extruder for 3D Bioprinting of Cell Laden Gels
Tech ID: sar001178IntroductionBioprinting is the layer-by-layer construction of synthetic tissues and organs that can be used for both research and medicine. While pneumatic and mechanical 3D printers are both commercially available, these systems are either expensive and/or unsuitable for bioprinting. For example, pneumatic systems are costly and ...

Staircase Method for Optimized Therapeutic Hypothermia
Tech ID: lyd000931IntroductionTherapeutic hypothermia is used in patients suffering stroke, cardiac arrest, head trauma, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and in infants after hypoxic-ischemic injury. In several clinical trials published to date, therapeutic hypothermia has failed to show benefits commensurate with the benefit predicted from animal studies....

Closed Suction Device with Automated Shutoff Valve, Pressure and Volume Sensor
Tech ID: hac000805IntroductionAlthough endotracheal (ET) tubes are effectively used to treat patients requiring respiratory ventilation, several complications may still arise. In particular, many patients receiving ET intubation develop an infection of the lungs, which can lead to additional complications and significantly affect the mortality rate...

Soukiasian Pleurodesis System
Tech ID: sou001141 IntroductionPleural effusion, or fluid accumulation in the pleural space, causes pressure on the lungs, making it difficult to expand them fully during respiration. Fluid build-up in the pleural space can cause shortness of breath, chest pain, and even a collapsed lung. This condition is typically seen in patients with cancer, h...

Urethral Attenuator - Urethra Sparing Applicator for Brachytherapy
Tech ID: kam001143IntroductionHigh dose rate prostate brachytherapy is a common treatment for prostate cancer. Unfortunately, the radiation used during this procedure can irritate and/or injure the urethra since the urethra runs through the prostate. Irritation and/or injury to the urethra can cause short-term problems, including increased urinary ...

Device for Advanced Functional Brain Monitoring With and Without Simultaneous Brain Fluid Drainage - Ventrode
Tech ID: ros000984IntroductionPlacing an external ventricular drain is commonly the first, life-saving procedure performed on many patients with moderate to severe brain injury or an obstruction of brain fluid. Furthermore, surface electroencephalography (EEG), which uses electrodes placed on a patient’s scalp, is used to monitor electrical s...

Patient Size Dependent Dose for Consistent Low Contrast Detectability in Abdominal CT
Tech Id: zho000825IntroductionAlthough CT scans have become a prominent diagnostic tool, the public has increased concerns about radiation exposure, especially the dose to pediatric patients. The result is a move towards reducing radiation dose to the minimum required for a particular patient size, lesion size and discernable contrast need. Despite...

Accommodative 3D Virtual Reality Magnification Micro Display Lense and Camera System
Tech ID: dan001109IntroductionEndoscopes and exoscopes are used for a multiplicity of applications in medicine. Three-dimensional (3D) scopes were recently introduced and allow for a sense of depth not possible with two-dimensional (2D) systems. Unfortunately, displays that present 3D images on a 2D screen may cause ocular fatigue, headaches, nause...

Modification to the Existing Guidewire Design
Tech ID: sab001127IntroductionIn a number of medical procedures, guidewires are unintentionally retained within a patient. At present, the only way to prevent this from happening requires the proceduralist to keep control of the proximal end of the wire so that it does not accidentally slip inside. The risk of such events increases owing to Human F...

Endotracheal Intubation Employing Computer-Guided Tracheal Targeting and On-Demand Endotracheal Tube Release - R-Mac -
Tech ID: ros001018IntroductionThere is a great and vital need in medicine to protect a patient’s upper airway. Any compromise of airflow will lead to severe harm or death within minutes. Generally, securing airflow through the upper airway is established by successful placement of an endotracheal tube (ETT) through the mouth and into the trac...
