Atomic Oxygen Texturing and Cleaning

Atomic oxygen oxidizes and removes biologically active contaminants, and reduces the contaminant to an inactive ash. Thus, the contaminant is both sterile and biologically inactive. The resulting surface is entirely free of any bacteria, viruses, prions, cells, or any organic matter. Currently, 3/4 of orthopedic implants have measurable amounts of endotoxins. Atomic oxygen could totally eliminate these endotoxins, greatly reducing chances of post-operative inflammation.

RF Telemetry System for Bio-Microelectromechanical (MEMS) Sensors and Actuators

This wireless technology enables fast inductive powering and data collection from implantable bio-MEMS sensors through electromagnetic coupling. This technology represents a distinct improvement over wired sensing approaches used in health monitoring. This innovation will enable smarter, easier-to-use devices that will allow physicians to monitor patients with chronic conditions in a fast and nonintrusive way.
