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
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
at the University of Delaware have devised an innovative and novel method of amplifying
magnitude and duration of transgene expression. This method uses the collagen mimetic
(CMP) mediated delivery of non-viral DNA from collagen containing scaffolds.
of the polyplex used is variable, allowing customized release of the... Read More
This is a technology to better
detect circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in cancer patients and treat the liquid
biopsies to differentiate women at risk for the metastatic disease.
Statistics demonstrate that about
15 million people in the United States are affected with cancer today. The
point at which the cancer breaks away from the primary tumor... Read More
present a novel modular approach for the creation of functional salivary cell
that can be co-assembled into a larger 3D-ST (3D salivary neo-tissue) hydrogel
for direct implantation
into patients. Specifically, biomimetic matrices providing defined biological
cues can be constructed from these building blocks: (1) chemically modified... Read More
proposed technology is an injectable device for the repair of damaged tissue.
The device is comprised of a polymer scaffold coated with synthetic
proteoglycans derived from the perlecan of a mouse, rat, or human. These
proteoglycans, with at least one glycosaminoglycan chain attached, retain the
ability of perlecan to bind and present heparin-binding growth... Read More
