Protective cover made of yeast
Yeast cells are a by-product of beer and bioethanol production and are therefore readily available.
Rotary piston pump
So far, the problem of sealing has been a major challenge when using rotary piston pumps.
EasyDMEK Shooter – PrepLoad-Tool
Corneal transplantation is the most frequently performed and most successful organ transplantion in medicine. Each layer of the cornea can develop its own disease.
Cartilage-specific antimicrobial CLEC3A
Bacterial infection is one of the most frequent complications in joint replacement and dental implant surgery. The incidence of septic arthritis following total joint arthroplasty is approximately 2%, leading to massive health problems and considerable cost to the national economy.
Careful control of the patient's blood temperature is imperative in cardiac surgery. The heat exchangers used for this purpose are usually integrated in the oxygenator of the heart-lung machine.
Athletes, such as marathon runners and cyclists, often resort to training at higher altitude areas, in order to optimize their endurance. The atmosphere in such locations has lower oxygen content, which forces the human body to compensate for the reduced oxygen uptake by increasing hemoglobin concentration in blood.
Diabrux is a user-friendly and the first bite film validated in clinical studies for the standardised, quantitative diagnosis of sleep bruxism. Diabrux is worn by the patient like a night splint. The device is based on a hard plate, which is covered by five specifically linked layers with different colours and defined abrasion properties. A fully automated evaluation software is provided for standardized, objective, quantitative analysis. Diabrux facilitates monitoring of bruxism activity. Thus, personalized therapy planning is possible and cost-intensive treatments can be scheduled more accurately.
Walkers are a great help for elderly or temporarily gait-impaired people. However, if the forces are overestimated, the E-Volator from the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences can lower a stand plate, the person can climb on and then drive electrically and power-saving to their destination.
The advantage is that anesthesiologists have an easy-to-use tool to treat uncooperative or stressed children before anesthesia without sedatives, which can have side effects. There is minimal need to train medical staff to use the new tool. It is cheap to manufacture and without the need for disposable items, which is environmentally friendly.
Total Toe – The foot expander
The "Total Toe", a training device for the toe flexor muscles, can reduce foot amputations for diabetics. Regular training has been shown to counteract muscle regression and reduce peak pressure under the foot - reducing problematic ulcerations and resulting foot amputations.
Movement optimization training tool
In order to optimize movement execution, athletes need feedback on their own movement progress. This technology can increase both effectiveness and efficiency through an extended reality (XR)-based approach using real-time feedback.
This invention provides a sealed respiration system that allows hygienic, protected performance of intensive-care examinations without releasing aerosol particles or droplets into the ambient atmosphere.
Neurostimulation with light
The stimulation of nerve cells with electrical or optical impulses is a field of research with a multitude of new applications in medicine. In the future, optogenetics will be used to research the healing possibilities of neurodegenerative diseases or traumatic injuries by stimulating photosensitized nerve cells.
Continuous 3D printing
In order to be able to use 3D printing systems economically and efficiently in series production, the available installation space in the 3D printer must be used optimally for each print or production batch. Thanks to an inclined arrangement of the build platform, the process offers the opportunity to economically mass-produce components despite a high variety of geometries. This is necessary, for example, for medical technology components that have to be adapted to individual structures or body geometry (e.g. dental orthopedics, sports equipment, etc.) and may also have to be fed continuously without batch operation.
BE-TI Safety Catheter
Completely closed puncture system. The BE TI Safety Catheter System allows a catheter to be inserted faster, safer and with significantly reduced blood loss, can be placed in almost any body position without risk of air embolism, and saves valuable time during emergency procedures.
Faster MRI examinations
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an expensive diagnostic imaging examination. A new method developed by the University of Duisburg-Essen significantly shortens MRI examination times by synthetically generating STIR sequences without the otherwise time-consuming STIR scans.
The invention uses an individualized foot dummy to provide the possibility of examining the lower leg orthosis in order to enable adequate immobilization. To achieve this, the supporting leg is scanned and then additively manufactured in individual parts.
Production process for a highly sensitive biosensor made from a crossed nanowire-structure field-effect transistor. The cost effective CMOS compatible production process allows for e.g. biosignal monitoring of molecules like c-reactive protein (CRP), cardiac troponin (cTnI), electrogenic cells, or peptides such as amyloid-beta.
Magnetic particles are often used to transport and/or separate biomolecules such as DNA or proteins. These particles have biochemically functionalized surfaces and are used as markers in analytical biotechnology and medical technology.
With extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, the physician only has oxygenators in a few different sizes. A suitable volume would be particularly important for infants and small children in order to relieve the blood circulation.
