A Closed Loop System for Responsive Precise Intraparenchymal Delivery of Adenosine for the Treatment of Epilepsy
TS-037644 — Medical device for controlling seizures.
Adenosinergic neuromodulation plays a crucial role in control of seizure activity and is described as the brain's endogenous anticonvulsant. Intraparenchymal infusion of adenosine into epileptogenic regions of the brain has been shown to control seizures (anti-ictogenic) and prevent progressiv…

Nanopump Separation Device and Method
TS-037584 — A device for separating macromolecules in a solution of macromolecules having different molecular sizes
Many clinical and research applications involve separation of specific biological molecules, such as nucleic acids and proteins, for further analysis and characterization. A complex biological system can only be understood after each component has been separately analyzed, and proteins must be pur…

Time Management Facilitator
TS-037366 — A novel device to reinforce the abstract concept of time to intellectually disabled children, especially those with Down syndrome.
Learning and understanding the abstract and intangible concept of time is especially difficult for children with Down Syndrome. This difficulty can cause deep frustration because it affects the family’s daily routine and reduces the child’s independence in the home, at school, and even…

Joint Stability Measurement Device for Total Knee Arthroplasty
TS-015289 — A device to intra-operatively measure varus/valgus, internal/external, and anterior/posterior stability for total knee arthroplasty
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is performed to relieve pain and disability associated with degenerative joint disease. Joint instability remains a leading cause of revision surgery following TKA. During the surgery, indicators of stability such as joint space are used to balance the knee. Many devi…

SmartHub Wheelchair Fitness Tracker
TS-015141 — The SmartHub is a personal fitness and activity tracking device designed for manual wheelchair users.
Fitness tracking technology has boomed in recent years. However, none of the technology that has been sold has been useable by those in wheelchairs. Either these devices rely on total body movement or the algorithms are not adapted for movement in a wheelchair instead of by walking upright. Many p…

Non-Contact Method for Accelerating Wound Healing
TS-015075 — Novel non-contact method for healing surface or deep wounds by inducing electric fields by applying time-varying magnetic fields.
The directional movement of biological cells in the presence of an applied electric field is known as galvanotaxis or electrotaxis. The majority of experiments related to galvanotaxis over the past two centuries have involved steady electric fields applied via electrodes placed in contact with a m…

Collapsible Anvil for Circular Surgical Stapler
TS-014834 — An improved device for surgical end-to-end anastomosis, a procedure common in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
Roux-en-Y laparoscopic gastric bypass is regarded as the ‘gold-standard-of-care’ for morbidly obese patients, classified as individuals with a body mass index (BMI) > 40. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a small hole, called an anastomosis, to reconnect the newly created st…
