Piezo-electric alternative to conventional step-motors, actuators, transducers, and solenoids offers unparalleled force, speed, and accuracy with minimal heat and no magnetic field
An alternative to solenoids and conventional actuators or transducers, this family of advanced technology piezo-electric actuators betters the performance envelope of conventional small step-motors, actuators, transducers, and solenoids by simultaneously providing greater force and deflection, producing no appreciable magnetic field and only minimal heat, and offering exceptional control and accuracy. Applications where solenoids may be problematic because of issues with accuracy or response time, proximity to EM-sensitive equipment, heat contamination, low power availability, or size now can be solved with the RLP domed piezo or the Viva mechanically amplified stacked piezo. RLP is a PZT disk laminated between two metal layers under heat and pressure. The dome flattens when energized. RLP's unique construction increases deflection 1000-fold from an unmodified 0.2 micron to 200 microns. Viva is a scalable actuator moved by a pre-loaded stack of PZT ceramic piezos that flex against a fixed base, with one or two output arms that mechanically amplify movement. Viva provides even greater force and deflection than RLP -- up to 1/8 of an inch and 7 pounds at speeds up to 300Hz. Viva's linear motion can be converted to rotary motion to replace brushless DC motors, but without the magnetic signature. Both actuators operate under accurate, repeatable electronic control. Both can operate for billions of cycles before requiring any maintenance or adjustment, and most adjustment is electronic. Each requires only 10-20% of the power of an equivalent solenoid, and produces about 10-20% the heat and noise of an equivalent solenoid. The units can exhibit hysteresis or not, as needed.

Improved dewatering fabric for paper manufacture
This new multilayer fabric removes 5-30% more water than existing fabrics (depending on what is currently being used) -- an important cost savings by avoiding removal at elevated temperature in a later step. This fabric can be utilized on current equipment. Different pore sizes within the fabric layers provides high water removal. Both a flow control regioin and a capillary region in the dewatering fabric increases the amount of water removed from the wet paper during the pressing process, compared to a fabric with neither a flow control region nor a capillary region, or compared to a fabric with only a flow control region. The two functional regions of the fabric work together to improve dewatering by acting against the flow of water from the fabric back into the paper at different times in the press process and using different physical mechanisms.

Rifle-scope mount that stays sighted-in after removal and remounting
The mechanism that connects a rifle scope to the gun has not seen much innovation since the Picatinny rail system was introduced in 1911. Few claim that the scope will retain its "sighting in" accuracy after the scope has been removed for transport (or for non-scope use) and remounted again in the field. This invention of a dentist and retired NYC policeman and gunsmith, uses a patented mounting face that "averages" away the variation in the base machining so the mount location and angle is more precisely replicated when the scope is remounted. A German optics firm designed around the patent and achieved the same performance, but their scopes retail for over $3,500. It is unlikely that there is another design-around so this patent is the key to this performance and market advantages for its owner.

Cold-weather face shield
This highly stylish, inexpensive cold weather face shield, enables increased respiratory system protection and adds functionality for the user's winter casual wear. The improved design includes a mechanism which allows for an on-off protection, enabling easier use. The device can operate in two modes (man-auto) and its aesthetic look appeals to people of all ages.The device is a low-cost, lightweight, and highly stylish cold-weather face shield that provides complete facial and head coverage. It provides an effective thermal seal. The sheilds can be molded in various colors and styles, logos/pictures can be embedded in them, and the surface istreated with anti-fog coating and UV filter.

Patented, CE-certified wound-drain insertion device
No doubt, you are aware of the poor ergonomic design of the conventional system for the insertion of drains, which results in numerous injuries of healthcare personnel annually. This (curved needle) system offers much room for improvement, which as you know, provides an excellent opportunity to stand out from the competition. A small company in the Netherlands recognized this and designed and patented a new drain application device which eliminates all the shortcomings of the conventional system. In the meantime, this design has been converted into a fully CE-certified class 2 medical device that has been sold commercially for the past two years now to a number of launching customers in the Netherlands. Thanks to its special handle, the device allows the healthcare provider to exert more force on the needle without the risk of needle-stick injuries. After puncturing the skin the needle is securely locked-up in a safety cap and can be disposed of as regular waste.

Carrier materials for mosquito-larvae-killing pesticides
The subject of the present invention are carrier materials for mosquito-larvae-killing pesticides (carrier composites). Numerous insecticide preparations have already been developed for exterminating the adult mosquitoes. However the resistance and extermination of other useful insects are problematic and there are non-avoidable side effects. A special kind of the formulation given in the present invention (which is possible to be manufactured upon request) is a multilayer carrier/larvicide composite granulate where the grains have an inner solid nucleus and may be built up from one or more outer layers which have greater density than the density of water. The thickness, type, and amount of the outer layers control the dissolution/peeling-off time. After dissolution/peeling of some of the outer layers, the density of the inner nucleus becomes dominant and the granulates start floating. The release of the larvicides start and the extermination of the The subject of the present invention are carrier materials for mosquito-larvae-killing pesticides (carrier composites).

Seeking: New medical diagnostic and monitoring technologies for at-home and point-of-care use
We are seeking the next generation of home-use and point-of-care (office and clinic use) diagnostic medical technologies and devices. Ongoing technological progress means that many diagnostic tests that monitor medical conditions, and that only recently required professional handling or laboratory processing, now may be packaged inexpensively for use in the home or in a doctor's office. Such tests would result in increased convenience for the medical consumer, quicker or even near-immediate results, and/or lower overall testing costs. We hope to uncover diagnostics in three places: o Diagnostic kits currently used in the hospital, ER, doctor's office, or clinic and that could be brought to the home consumer environment. o Next-generation kits that may diagnose or monitor diseases or conditions not easily measured yet, or that may monitor conditions in new or especially convenient ways. o Diagnostic kits currently on the market for home consumers, but that may have limited distribution. Testing may be done within the device, or the device may be a tethered testing head (tethered via phone, cell phone, internet, or mail, for example) that reports to a central testing facility. A sample prepared by the device and physically delivered to a central testing facility is also a possibility. Early-stage technologies are of interest.

Seeking: Ways to detect the toughness, hardness, and microstructure properties of welded steel regions
We are seeking a non-destructive test mechanism to detect the fracture toughness, hardness, and microstructure (including different grain structures) properties of steel weld zones. Particularly interested in measuring the properties of flash-upset welding of steel. Constraints: Must be able to detect hardness, toughness, and microstructure properties of steel; Region to scan is less than 1"; Particular interest in the weld zone, which is less than 1/8"; Standalone operation; does not operate in a continuous, in-line manufacturing process. Ideally, the detection system would be able to identify tough, hardness, and microstructure properties of a welded region, compare these results to both good and bad profiles, and alarm the operator of a specific failure type.

Seeking: Oral-care probiotics
To identify strategic partners to work collaboratively with P&G to develop probiotic-based approaches that deliver important Oral Care benefits. What we are looking for: Commercial or finished products that provide meaningful benefits to the oral cavity. Including one or more of the following: Anti-Caries, o Protection of/or restoration of acid eroded tooth surfaces and comparable to fluoride; o Gum Health; o Malodor reduction better than Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC) and of longer duration; o Plaque re-growth prevention better than Chlorhexidine (CHX) without stain/taste negatives; o reduction in bad breath preferably better than Listerine; o Reduction in gram negative/anaerobic bacteria. What we are not looking for: o Unstable compositions; o Non-GRAS actives; o Performance less than marketed oral care technologies in paste and rinse.

Seeking: Timers for white goods (consumer durables)
Specifically, we require a defrost timer for refrigerator use and a timer for use in washing machines. Presently, our clients are leaders in manufacturing thermostats used in refrigerator, air conditioners, and commercial appliances. They make about seven million pieces per year. They are open for know-how transfer or joint venture. The technology you propose should meet the latest developments in consumer durables.

Seeking: Diagnostic dental floss
We are seeking dental floss for detecting gingival inflammation (GI) or symptoms of inflammation (e.g. bleeding). The product should be able to show an immediate and noticeable change (e.g. colorimetric) for the user and differentiate between healthy gums vs mild/moderate GI vs severe GI. What we are looking for: Preferably an integrated solution, where - Chemistry on the floss with the floss itself acting as the diagnostic device; - Chemistry should be sensitive enough to provide noticeable differences in disease states; - Chemistry must be compatible with wax or emulsion coats. Product form: - Dental floss. We are not interested in: - Chemistries that are not GRAS; - Solutions that involve extra diagnostic steps for the consumer (e.g. specialized diagnostic kits or secondary solutions that the consumer would need to purchase separately)
