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 >

Jellyfish׳ Collagen-Based Smart Wound Dressing with Antibacterial Properties

Collagen-based dressing in wounds greatly benefits the healing process. Unfortunately, most collagen is extracted from bovine tissues, which bears a significant risk of transmitting various biological contaminations. Moreover, the collagen extraction process from bovine tissue involves time and cost-consuming steps, reducing the total collagen yield and increasing the overall cost of goods. In addition, the […] Read More >

Low Frequency Nanobubbles-Enhanced Ultrasound Mechanotherapy for Noninvasive Cancer Surgery

A unique theranostic ultrasound-based technology for low-energy mechanical ablation of tissues. Noninvasive ultrasound surgery can be achieved using focused ultrasound to locally affect the targeted site without damaging intervening tissues. Mechanical ablation and histotripsy use short and intense acoustic pulses to destroy the tissue via a purely mechanical effect. Here we show that coupled with […] Read More >

Dense Speed of Sound Shift Imaging for Ultrasonic Thermometry

During thermal therapeutic applications such as high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), hyperthermia, and cryoablation, it is crucial to monitor internal tissue temperature to provide feedback on the procedure. Non-invasive MRI techniques for thermal monitoring are limited by their availability and cost. Ultrasonic thermometry is an emerging adaptable alternative due to the advantages of ultrasound in accessibility, […] Read More >
