Variance of Fixed Joint Space Width and Nomogram to Predict Knee Replacement using Measures from Fixed Flexion Knee X-rays
The cartilage underneath our knees keeps the bones in our legs from rubbing together. Unfortunately for many, this cartilage wears abnormally thin over time and causes physiological problems. If, however, this can be detected before it becomes a serious issue for the patient, then the patient can receive treatments before the painful problem can be...

Sugar-Based Low Molecular Weight Hydrogels from Alkyl Glycolipids
University of Arizona researchers have created sugar-based low molecular weight hydrogels that spontaneously self-assemble through weak, noncovalent intermolecular interactions. These gels are thixotropic, biocompatible, and biodegradable. Despite being held together through non-covalent interactions, these hydrogels exhibit greater mechanical strength...

Improvements to Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Guide for Hip Fracture Fixation
This invention is a design for a minimally invasive dynamic hip screw guide that will fix the position and angle in the frontal plane for the intramedullary rod. This device is a guide that can be placed on the leg rather than directly on the bone, allowing for a procedure that is significantly less invasive. This current adaptation of the invention...

A Modular Running Shoe with Individually Optimized Replaceable Heel
This technology relates to footwear featuring replaceable sole portions. Through replaceable soles the technology can increase the lifetime of shoes and allow for optimization of shock absorption based upon a specific individual. Background: Soles on running shoes have a two major flaws. They only have a specific lifetime as the soles can wear...

Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Guide for Hip Fracture Fixation
The invention is a design for a minimally invasive percutaneous guide for pin placement used in hip fracture fixation. This guide is placed on the leg but rigidly affixed to the bone to provide stable platform for pin placement. It enables independent control of position and rotation on both anterior/posterior and lateral fluoroscopy, allowing steady...
