Bacterial infection is one of the most frequent complications in joint replacement surgery. The incidence of septic arthritis following total joint arthroplasty is approximately 2%, leading to massive health problems and considerable cost to the national economy. A new approach to reduce such infections is made by coating prostheses and implants with bioactive, anti-infectious substances.

Offers
The widespread use of antibiotics has caused a growing problem of antimicrobial resistance in the community and in hospital settings. Both fungal and bacterial resistance to current therapies are observed, particularly in immunocompromised patients. The melanocortins are endogenous peptides that exert pleiotropic effects on the host. One of these molecules, α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH), has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial action.

The success of radiotherapy depends on how sensitive the tumour is to radiation. The most important parameters that radiotherapy must consider for optimum results are the radiation sensitivity of the tumour and the normal tissue. Researchers at a German university identified so-called prompt double-strand breaks (prDSBs) as a surrogate predictor of cellular radiation sensitivity.

Many studies have found that wave energy has great potential, as well as being a source of renewable energy. Therefore, a great effort is being made to research and develop possible technologies that allow us to make the most of the oscillating nature of the waves. Researchers from a Spanish university have developed a new high efficiency turbine suitable to exploit wave energy, which can continuously work with alternative bidirectional flows. Contrary to the systems currently used, the present development provides better and more stable performances.

Smart bench for ambulances

Offers
Currently, critical patients transport in the passenger compartment of ambulances is performed on a stretcher housed in a platform, located on the floor of the vehicle. These are longitudinal structures that facilitate the stretcher anchoring in the chassis of the sanitary vehicle to prevent movement during the transport.

Aerographite is a graphene-based open pore carbon foam with extremely high porosity, very low density, and high specific surface. A German research group has developed a novel synthesis process for this carbon foam which comprises of two steps. First, a zinc oxide based ceramic template is formed by mixing, pressing, and sintering of a metal oxide and polyvinylacetale blend. In a second step this template is converted into the carbon based structure by a chemical vapor deposition process (CVD).

Diabetes mellitus is one of the major health concerns worldwide affecting 425 million people and its prevalence is expected to increase to 629 million by 2045. It is estimated that 12% of the global health expenditure is spent on diabetes (around $727 billion). One serious complication of diabetes mellitus is the diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). Impaired local blood circulation including the resulting low tissue oxygenation, nutrient supply and waste elimination is a major cause for compromised wound healing in diabetic patients and wounds often become chronic and non-healing.

Customised barcode system for management of access to any kind of premises like housing facilities or car parks

Technology
TODE20180625001
Offers
A startup from Northern Germany has developed a technology to give temporary access to certain premises based on a customised barcode system. The invention combines a hardware device with a web service. The hardware consists of a barcode scanner with internet connectivity and a processor. It gets installed right next to the existing intercom or doorbell. If a person wants to enter the building/facility, he or she presents a barcode or qr-code. The information is transmitted to the web service, where access authorisation gets checked.
