• Development of a Telemetry Unit for Wireless Monitoring of Bone Strain 

    Moiz, Fahad; Huang, Qian; Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Johnson, Mark L. (Mark Louis) (2010-03)
    A telemetry unit designed to monitor strain in bones is presented. This unit allows studying the relationship between bone load and bone mass in scenarios that were not possible with current setup. The current measuring ...
  • An Electro-magnetic cell stimulator [abstract] 

    Rizk, Hatem Ibrahim; Mo, Cheng L.; Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Hall, Todd; Wacker, Michael J.; Brotto, Marco (2010-03)
    A device to stimulate bone and muscle cell growth and possibly for treatment of bone and muscle injuries is presented. The device, called EStim, generates electric and magnetic pulses at programmable intervals. This device ...
  • Flexible Carbon Nanotube-Based Strain Gage Sensors 

    Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Johnson, Mark L. (Mark Louis) (2010-03)
    Aging brings about dramatic changes in the skeleton and other organ systems. Major skeletal diseases associated with aging include osteoporosis and attendant fractures (hip, spine and wrist or Collies) and osteoarthritis ...
  • Hyperthermia Induces Functional and Molecular Modifications in Cardiac, Smooth and Skeletal Muscle Cells 

    Romero, Sandra; Hall, Todd; Touchberry, Chad; Elmore, Chris; Silswal, Neerupma; Parelkar, Nickil; Baker, Kendra; Loghry, Michael; Rizk, Hatem Ibrahim; Mo, Chenglin; Brotto, Leticia; Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Wacker, Michael J.; Andresen, Jon; Brotto, Marco (2010-03)
    Hyperthermia is used for the treatment of a number of diseases, including muscle injuries, inflammations, tendinitis, and osteoarticular disorder. More recently, hyperthermia has been used as an adjuvant in cancer treatment. ...

    Moiz, Fahad; Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Lee, Yugyung, 1960- (2010-03)
    Human body motion capture has a wide range of applications and is being extensively investigated. Areas of application include virtual and augmented reality, biomechanics, sign language translation, gait analysis and ...
  • Smart Cardiovascular Stent against In-Stent Restenosis 

    Assel, Thomas; Cuddalore, Chetan; Leon-Salas, Walter D. (Walter Daniel); Lee, Chi H. (Chi-Hyun) (2010-03)
    A smart cardiovascular stent to be used as a single set of theranostics (therapeutics and diagnostics) is developed. The stent is aimed at delivering nitric oxide as a therapeutic agent and monitoring stent-induced restenosis. ...
