OEIP grants licenses for UD patented and copyrighted inventions to both existing and startup companies that demonstrate the technical and financial capabilities to develop UD’s early-stage technology into commercially successful products and services.
novel invention is a system for rapid, efficient, robust, and cost effective
mass propagation of Miscanthus × giganteus suitable for industrial scale
is a worldwide thirst to develop a rapid, efficient, robust, and cost effective
mass propagation of Miscanthus × giganteus. The current rhizome-based
system has a high... Read More
ud10-06 – APPLICATION: This invention is a
process that enables the automated fit and function customization,
manufacturing, and assessment of a passive-dynamic ankle-foot orthoses.
Current passive-dynamic ankle-foot orthoses
(PD-AFOs) are either generically manufactured, having standardized size and
shape, or are manually fabricated, causing substantial time and... Read More
ud19-03 – APPLICATION:
The present invention comprises a novel
battery management system (BMS) in which a blend of external factors and user
preferences are inputs to a system designed to minimize battery degradation and
also minimize energy consumption.
The rechargeable batteries present in most
portable electronic devices must be carefully charged and discharged... Read More
This invention is a process by which permeability of the
fabric of composite materials can be manipulated during an infusion so that
successful filling is made more reliable.
Vacuum assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM) is a popular
method for creating composite materials which are a combination of high
strength fibers and a polymer matrix... Read More
ud18-46 – APPLICATIONS:
artificially muscle powered exoskeleton consisting of actuators that improve mobility
for users with upper body disabilities by mimicking skeletal muscles. It is a
lightweight and noiseless design which will revolutionize rehabilitation
robotics and exoskeleton devices.
designs in exoskeletons have limitations that could impede users... Read More
ud18-07 – APPLICATIONS: A process has been designed to form a new polymer material made
from amino acids. The resulting polymer can be of various dimensions (one, two,
or three dimensional) and would allow for impact in environmental, energy, and
PROBLEMS ADDRESSED: The process uses peptide assembly to allow for precise size and
arrangement of polymers. Prior methods are... Read More
APPLICATIONS: A process has been designed to prevent cell response of catabolic
activity in cartilage. Through the administration of two common drugs, the catabolic
enzymes that are released by cells after joint injuries become inhibited. This
has potential to limit or prevent osteoarthritis and cartilage degeneration.
PROBLEMS ADDRESSED: During stimulations in the joints due to... Read More
ud18-30 – APPLICATION: This is a potent new process in
which a desired protein can be cleared from the cell by avoiding degradation,
resulting in rapid accumulation of the protein of interest. PROBLEMS ADDRESSED: At the moment, there are no technologies or processes that allow for the
regulation of protein stability using other proteins intracellularly other than
this process. There are other... Read More
ud18-31 – APPLICATION: This
is a potential invention with an internal reflection element which allows for
the addition of a stir bar into an electrochemical cell, along with allowing
liquid phase observation of electrochemical reactions via infrared spectroscopy
while minimizing mass transport limitations.
PROBLEMS ADDRESSED: Spectro-electrochemical cells are currently used in academic... Read More
ud18-33 – APPLICATION: This is
a potent innovation in the treatment of coronary artery disease. The innovation
facilitates the revascularization of coronary vessels.
Coronary stents have been used in the treatment of coronary
artery disease throughout the past medical history. Many of these stents that
are currently used are made as a bare metal stent. These bare metal... Read More
