Biopsy Needle System to Prevent P. acnes Contamination
BackgroundInfections are a potentially devastating complication of any surgery. Amongst the most devastating are post-surgical joint infections caused by Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), now considered the major microbial cause of surgical implant failures. Without early diagnosis and intervention, these infections result in joint tissue necrosi...
Orthopedic Tool for Extracting a Long Stem Prosthesis
Background:Total shoulder replacements are the third most common orthopedic procedure in Canada, following hip and knee arthroplasty. Shoulder surgery provides an effective and durable solution to treat severe pain due to osteoarthritis, torn rotator cuffs, as well as fractures of the humeral head. In order to restore normal shoulder motion, the im...
Copper-based photovoltaic nanocrystals for thin-film solar cells
IntroductionIncreased environmental awareness promoted many countries to adopt renewable energy as the new power source. Solar energy tapped through photovoltaic (PV) technology has become the widely accepted source of power generation, as it operation generates no pollution, and no greenhouse gas emissions. Improving efficiency while reducing cost...
Sample Collection, Annotation, Archiving, Analysis and Distribution System (SCAAAD)
BackgroundCurrent data collection and archiving methods are time-consuming and error-prone. Field scientists and technicians must carry a wide variety of sampling devices that inherently lack the ability to communicate with each other - often relying on a pen-and-paper system of recording and annotation. Further, when they exit the field and return...
Formaldehyde-Free Phenolic Bio-Resins
BackgroundPhenol formaldehyde (PF) resins are synthetic polymers which have a market value of $10 billion globally per year. They are used in a wide variety of products, including coatings, adhesives, laminates, and engineered plastics. Comprising many household and industrial goods such as plywood, countertops, brake pads, and bearings. PF resins ...
Force space navigation for robotics
This system is designed to provide spatial movement tracking and robotic end-effector positioning guidance without a secondary tracking system.Background:Computerized surgical navigation is increasing. Currently, joint replacement and neurosurgery are experiencing rapid growth in the development and clinical use of such systems, which provide impro...
Touch Point Finger Pad Digitizer
BackgroundSignificant advancements have been made in non-clinical surgical training simulations - virtual reality, robotics and computer simulations have enabled a wide range of skills to be practiced and tested. However, there is still significant interest in finding ways to monitor learning progress and confirm proficiency.A surgical trainee has ...
The Angular Propulsion Engine
BackgroundNumerous industry, such as but not limited to municipal solid waste management, and wastewater treatment generate a large number of waste gas streams. Carbon dioxide and methane are examples of waste gas generated from process steps including the combustion of fossil fuels and ethanol fermentation.Waste gas from these operations is flare...
