Minimally-Invasive Spinal Deformity Correction Device for Children and Adolescents
Project ID: D2009-90 Invention Description Patented technology combines a hybrid rod-cable that loops around rotatory pedicle screws anchored to the proximal-most vertebrae within the spinal deformity to correct scoliosis. The device may be placed in any region of the spine, but is typically located in the thoracic or lumbar regions. Growth and elongation...
Theory and Applications of Super-Resolution Imaging with Modulation of Point Spread Function
Project ID: TECH2024-09 Background High image resolution is a desired outcome in wave-related disciplines such as ultrasound, acoustics, optics, and electromagnetics. However, the spatial resolution of an imaging system is fundamentally limited by the spatial frequency of the point spread function (PSF) of the system due to diffraction. There have...
Modular Hip Distractor
Project ID: TECH-2023-10 Background Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique involving the insertion of specialized instruments through small incisions into the hip joint. This approach is commonly employed to address various hip-related issues including femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral tears, and the extraction of loose...
Combo Cup
Project ID: TECH-2023-28 Background Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) occurs when a pelvic organ slips from the normal position and down into the rectum or vagina. Patients can alleviate symptoms by inserting a pessary into the vagina to hold an organ in its normal position. This can be a great alternative to risky surgeries but is challenging or impossible...
Non-invasive Ocular Glucose Sensing
Project ID: D2010-12 Background Diabetes mellitus is a disease in which an individual has difficulty regulating their blood glucose levels, in which extremely low or high glucose concentrations can occur. Normal physiological blood glucose ranges are generally between 80-120 mg/dL; however, diabetics commonly have blood concentrations from 50-500...
Pressure Ulcer Boot
Project ID: D2022-32 Background Pressure ulcers or bedsores form when there is a loss of circulation due to prolonged pressure at a point, such as on the heel of the foot. This occurs in immobile patients, such as those confined to a bed or wheelchair. A common way to prevent pressure ulcers is to change the position of the patient with...
One Step Aortic Puncher
Project Id: D2022-31 Background Patients with coronary artery disease develop this disease often over a course of decades. Deposits high in cholesterol, commonly referred to as plaque, builds up in the coronary arteries causing inflammation. This disease tends not to be noticeable until significant blockage or a heart attack occurs. Coronary bypass...
Indwelled Urinary Catheter Modification
Tech ID: D2022-07 Urethral catheterization is a common medical practice for a variety of problems that require long-term catheterization such as retention of urine, urinary dysfunction, neurogenic bladder, pelvic floor dysfunction, and enlarged prostate. A conventional urinary catheter design generally includes a tip and a side opening at a distal...
Dual Microcatheter
Project ID: D2021-45 Background: With increasing use of embolization in minimally invasive surgical procedures, the demand for microcatheters has increased exponentially and the growth rate is at 8%. Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are abnormal connections between arteries and veins in the brain or spine. The distinguishing feature of an AVM is...
IVC Filter Retrieval System
Project Id: 2021-40 Background: Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are small, metal devices temporarily placed in the inferior vena cava that are designed to catch blood clots and stop the blood clots from traveling to the lungs. An average of 65,000 IVC filters are placed annually in the United States. About 15% of the time, the IVC filter becomes...
