Conventus - A Novel Orthopaedic Drill Guide Docking System
The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine estimates 5 million arthroscopic surgeries worldwide each year. In the United States, the number of arthroscopic procedures performed between 1999 and 2009 increased 18 fold1. Arthroscopic procedures continue to increase in the US and globally. The US arthroscopic equipment market accounts for 53...

Self-Regenerating Antioxidant Catalysts for Protection of Artificial Implants against Foreign Body Reaction
On an annual basis, medical device companies generate over $200 billion in revenue globally. In the U.S. alone, these companies generated over $85 billion a year in revenues. A large portion of this revenue is derived from sales of devices that are implanted in the human body.1 There is growing demand for advanced coatings to control the interactio...

3D Printed Variable Hardness Foot Orthotics
In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes[1]. At any given moment, between 4-10% of diabetics have a diabetic foot ulcer. Over a lifetime of diabetes, more than 25% of diabetic patients will have a diabetic foot ulcer. In 3-5% of cases, the ulcer will become serious enough that an amputation is required to save a lim...

Tissues Containing Semiconductor Nanomaterials and Methods of Preparing and Using the Same
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. The mechanism of the disease stems from irreversible death of cardiomyocytes resulting in loss of heart function. Regenerative medicine strategies are emerging to replace the impaired cardiac tissue with functional tissues that can remod...

Nano EDL Capacitor Based Biosensors
This technology features the development and application of a nanoscale electrical double layer (EDL) capacitor based biosensor. It takes advantage of the fact that the capacitance of an EDL device varies very sensitively with the charge and dielectric conditions of the nearby space spanning from the electrode surface to a few nanometers out to dev...

Easy Incorporation of PEGylated Lysines and Glutamines in Peptides
With peptide drugs such as Victoza reaching blockbuster status, the rapid proteolysis and clearance of peptides from the body is becoming an increasing concern. The PEGylation strategies used with protein drugs simply don’t work and PEG polymers are too large for peptides. Peptides are easy to synthesize using solid phase peptide synthesis...

Cellular Separation Device for Tissue Engineering and Diagnostic Applications
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US and has impacted most Americans in some way. The current diagnostic tests are unreliable and fail to capture the complexity and heterogeneity of a cancer biopsy. In fact, 1 in 4 cancer cases will have delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis. This alarming statistic supports the need for more reliable...

Novel ECM Stabilization in Soft Connective Tissue
The cardiovascular market is a large and growing market. It is estimated to be worth $10.7 billion in the U.S and growing at ~9% [1]. Within the cardiovascular market, heart valves are medical devices intended to replace calcified or degenerated valves. There are approximately 60,000 heart valve transplants annually in the US. The two options for...
