Layered Skin Suturing Pad - Intramuscular Injection Training Pad - Subcutaneous Injection Training Pad - Cystocentesis/Bladder Palpation Training Block - Bovine Tail Venipuncture Model

Veterinary training requires that a student master certain techniques that require fine motor control – a skill that can only be obtained through repeated practice. A major issue during veterinary training is simulating the tactile sensation of live patients – skin, muscle, fat, and bone all offer varying resistance to applied pressure, laceration,...

070152: An Autonomously Adaptable Self-Structuring Patch Antenna

The patch antenna (PA) is widely used in communications and radar systems. Its primary benefits over other types of antennas are that it is conformal, and can thus be placed onto the surfaces of aircraft and land vehicles, that it is polarization diverse (can be configured for multiple polarizations), and that it is simple to construct. A typical...

070019: Improved Mass Air Flow Sensor for Automotive Applications

Competition in the automotive industry has increased the need for superior engines. Electronic monitoring and microsecond control systems enable a level of sophistication and performance that has previously not been available. Accurate input to engine control systems has become a priority. Combustion air flow control is as important as control of...

060114: A Single-Input, Single-Output (SISO) Microcantilever Sensor

In recent years microcantilever structures have gained wide acceptance for use as physical, chemical and biological sensors. Such sensors consist of a silicon or poly silicon beam coated with a substance that activates the surface such that it will absorb the material to be sensed. As the target material is absorbed, the mass, and thus the resonant...

06098: Method and Apparatus for Autonomous Self-Powered Integrated Piezo-Floating Gate Sensors

Each year, hundreds of thousands of hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed in the United States. Most of these prosthetic implants are expected to last for at least 20 years after which revision and replacement surgery will be required. In many cases, however, excessive wear and loosening of artificial joints leads to joint swelling, bone...
