Fault detection and diagnosis is essential across diverse industries.  They increase safety and reduce costs, replacing current scheduled-based maintenance strategies which cost billions yearly. Dr. Nataraj’s fault detection system invention provides a software-based method for diagnosing the nature and magnitude of faults within dynamic mechanical and electrical systems. The software uses measured data from already […]

Villanova University scientist, Qianhong Wu has developed a novel method to assess the results of a BAFMD test, including a system and device that evaluate the output and results of an FMD process. It produces a diagnostic tool that overcomes the previous issues of interpreting an FMD test. There is significant potential for the tool […]

HealSuture is conceptualized in two forms for different surgical uses. The first is a dissolvable polylactic acid (PLA)-based suture infused with the active compound. The second is a compound-coated silk suture with similar properties. In essence, these sutures locally re-activate a latent fetal program of stem cell-based regenerative healing that avoids fibrotic deposition (scar tissue).

The use of supports for limbs during medical procedures and recovery is common. A wide variety of limb support devices are available on the market, however, none are ideal. Some are bulky and not easily maneuverable. Others are permanently fixed to hospital beds. Other types of limb supports are intricate and expensive, and some can […]

Electronic Medical Record systems (EMRs) have become virtually ubiquitous in the medical field and are widely used at hospitals around the world.  Current EMRs provide robust medical records organized and arranged on an individual, per-patient basis.   However, there are certain circumstances when the care of two patients is interrelated, such as during breastfeeding and other […]
