Biphasic Osteochondral Construct for Cartilage Tissue Repair (09-026)
This osteochondral construct is seeded with mesenchymal stem cells to encourage repair of cartilage and subchondral bone in synovial joints. The global market for tissue engineering and regeneration is expected to grow from $13.6 billion in 2016 to $60.8 billion in 2021, in part due to the 5.4 million patients projected to require joint and cartila...

Cost Effective Jaw Fixation System (2013-089)
This jaw fixation device is a patient-specific orthotic that decreases the risk of surgical complications and operating time. Each year nearly one million Americans suffer a traumatic injury that requires surgery to fix their broken or fractured jaws and over 48 thousand will develop oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer. Due to increasing incidence ...

Injectable Joint Lubricant for Treating Osteoarthritis (00-001)
This dextran-based hydrogel uses phospholipid delivery to treat degenerative joint diseases, also known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting over 27 million Americans over the age of 25. It becomes more common with age, often affecting the neck, lower back, knees, and hips. Normally synovial fluid, a nat...

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...

Method and Material to Extend the Life of Total Joint Replacements through Wear Particle Activation
More than 500,000 joint replacements occur in the US each year and demand for joint replacements will grow an estimated 175 percent for total hip replacements and six-fold for total knee replacements by 2030 (CDC report “Health United States 2009”). These replacements typically last about 10 years or more, but as the patients live long...
