Multiple Stated Electrostatically Formed Nanowire Transistors (MSET)

TECHNOLOGYElectrostatically Formed Nanowires (EFN) based transistors have been recently suggested as robust sensing (Shalev et al. 2013) and memory devices (Shalev et al. 2012). The EFN device resembles the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) four gate field-effect transistor (G4-FET) developed in 2002 (Blalock et al. 2002) which emerged from the volume inversion SOI MOSFET. The G4-FET combines MOSFET […] Read More >

autonomous pressure relieving aids for wheelchair patients

Technology Anti-pressure-ulcer non-powered wheelchair cushion with means for sensory compensation to stimulate frequent postural changes in patients with paraplegia.  The patient-activated wheelchair cushion shifts the sensory mechano-stimulations that provoke movement to an anatomical site which is sensitive to such stimulations (above the spinal cord injury (SCI) level). Background and Description In situations with lack of […] Read More >
