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...

Injectable Protein-Based Hydrogels with Ligand-Mediated Reinforcement for Long-Term In Vivo Applications
This technology is a protein-based hydrogel that uses cross-links to self-assemble after injection. The technology addresses the issue with in vivo use of hydrogels by merging the biocompatability of a protein hydrogel with a reinforced rupture force typically found in chemical hydrogels. An injectable hydrogel with these properties has immense potential...

Method, Device and System for Appendage Protection Therapy (Smart Offloading Boot)
This technology is a personalized orthotic that measures and adjusts for high risk factors associated with wound healing of diabetic foot ulcers. The orthotic senses pressure, temperature, blood flow, oxygen tension, pH levels, and sweat chloride levels at the skin contact surface. Background: Diabetic foot ulcers require a lot of monitoring for...

Underwater Adhesives
This technology provides a method for underwater adhesion through the use of a masked compound that, when exposed to water, forms covalent bonds with surfaces containing phenols. Background: It is extremely difficult to repair cracked or broken surfaces that are exposed to water (i.e. boat hulls, swimming pools, human tissues, etc.) without the...

Smart Textile to Predict Diabetic Foot Ulcer
This invention is a movable, washable smart textile that can measure abnormalities in pressure and temperature when a patient walks on it. The textile can analyze the data and send alerts to the patient when abnormalities suggest the presence of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and/or the likelihood of falls or other injuries. Background: Demand for new...

Smart Insole
This technology provides an orthopedic device that can measure different factors that could affect wound healing, such as physical stress and pressure, foot positioning, pH, blood flow, and skin temperature. All of these factors may assist in the stabilization and proper healing of ulcerative and/or post-operative conditions of the foot, especially...
