Smart Orthopedic Screws for Imaging through Tissue (2012-018)
These smart orthopedic screws allow physicians to noninvasively detect and monitor the health of bone implants, potentially preventing infection and implant loosening over time. In the United States, musculoskeletal injuries affect over 28 million patients annually – at least two million of which require fracture fixation surgery. These surgeries...

Durable Polymeric Antimicrobial Coating for Orthopedics (2017-059)
External fixation is a well-established orthopedic practice in which fractured bones or fusion sites are immobilized for healing by placing wires and/or pins into the bone on either side. Unfortunately, both superficial and deep tissue infections are prevalent with the use of external fixators, particularly Staphylococcal infections. The economic burden...

Portable Device for Diagnosis and Monitoring of Rotator Cuff Disease (2012-106)
This device utilizes ultrasound imaging to diagnose and monitor rotator cuff injuries. Each year there are over three million new cases of rotator cuff disease. Among those affected, more than half the population over 60 suffer from rotator cuff disease. Shoulder injuries, and particularly rotator cuff disease, can be difficult to diagnose. To give...

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 method...

Method and Material to Extend the Life of Total Joint Replacements through Wear
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 longer...
