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...

High Bandwidth Positive Displacement Reversible Pump/Motor
This invention is a pump system developed to serve as an artificial heart. This is an electrically driven device without fixed valves that functions with "functional equivalents" of valves via a sliding vane. The vane serves to propel flow as well as to partition flow. A high bandwidth positive displacement reversible pump/motor with two embodiments...

Gall Bladder Cryoablation Device
This device is a novel cryoablation procedure and probe to treat gallstones. The probe is designed to fit in the gall bladder. The probe will freeze and ablate the gallbladder and cystic ducts but won’t freeze other organs that are in close proximity with the gall bladder. This invention is a less invasive alternative to a cholecystectomy for...

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...

Baro-Balloon
This invention is a new medical device designed to replace permanent and invasive methods of weight loss. The device itself is a series of balloons used to gradually decrease the space in the stomach to promote weight loss. Unlike current gastric balloon based interventions that are free-floating and meant to only be utilized in the short term, this...
