Technologies


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...
Training System for Ear Pathologies
Background:Otolaryngology is the study and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).Otoscopy is the visual examination of the ear canal and eardrum using an instrument called an otoscope for the purpose of diagnosing disease. It is routinely performed by primary caregivers, audiologists and surgeons. At present, trainees are taught...
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 ...
Anti-Infective Efficacy of Histatin-Related Peptide DB2121
Background:In order to maximize resources, biological systems are designed to generate multifunction protein units that serve different roles depending upon need and context. In particular, there are several families of proteins that have emerged with both antimicrobial properties, as well as bi-activity to promote wound closure and healing. Fungal...
High Precision Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA) System for Monitoring Micro-Movement in Orthopedic Implants
Background:Over 400,000 people per year in the United States undergo joint replacement surgery comprising a range of implant types and locations. These surgeries include the hip, knee, spine and digital/wrist. It has been well established that short-term micromotion at the implant-bone interface can be a strong predictor of long-term implant loosen...
