Ear Tube for Easy Removal of Blockage (2017-047)
This ear tube design, called AuriClear, has a removable film which allows for blockages to be removed non-invasively during a routine doctor visit. About one in five children will need ear tubes before the age of 10. Out of the one million procedures performed in the United States in 2016, 85 percent were children under the age of two. Currently, e...

Bioadhesive Hydrogel for Surgical Repair of High Risk Wounds (2013-056)
This surgical bioadhesive mitigates the complications associated with traditional suturing practices, potentially decreasing surgery and recovery times. By 2017, the market for high strength medical adhesive is projected to reach $800 million. Clinical need for bioadhesives has risen due to the movement to laparoscopic and minimally invasive surger...

Locking Total Knee Replacement Design for Treating Knee Extensor Weakness (2012-084)
This design allows patients to selectively lock the knee in full extension for the purposes of ambulation and unlock free rotation when desired. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed in the United States each year. While total knee replacement (TKR) is a definitive meth...

Treatment to Render Implants Resistant to Diabetes
Diabetes plays a role in the functionality of biomaterials in the body. Hyperglycemia, the condition arising from high blood sugar levels, causes occlusion and restenosis of vascular grafts and degeneration of heart valves. These conditions lead to heart disease, which made up 68% of all diabetes-related deaths in the U.S. in 2004[1]. A primary ...
