Hydraulically Boosted Micro-Positioning Device

University of Waterloo

BackgroundThe University of Waterloo has developed a hydraulically boosted micro-positioning device that can be used to amplify or de-amplify the stroke displacement of smart material actuators (e.g. piezoelectric, magnetostrictive, etc.) commonly used in micro-positioning devices. The new device can be used and applied to a variety of micro-positioning devices to induce linear and rotational movement. Description of the inventionPrevious efforts to boost stroke displacement have attempted...

Glucose Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (GAS)

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in diabetes, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to diabetes that are...

Obesity Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (OASIS)

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in obesity, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to overweight or...

BIOMARKERS FOR RAPID DETECTION OF AN OCCURRENCE OF A STROKE EVENT

University of Manitoba

A diagnostic assay for detecting an occurrence of a stroke event in a mammalian subject. The assay comprises the steps of: (i) separating a plasma fraction from a blood sample collected from the mammalian subject; (ii) quantifying in the plasma fraction a L- glutamine hydroxylamine glutamyl transferase (L-GHGT) activity; (iii) quantifying in the plasma fraction a gamma glutamyl hydroxamate synthetase (GGHS) activity; (iv) adding together or alternatively calculating the combinatorial...

METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE PROGNOSIS OF A PATIENT WITH A NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE

McGill University, NOVA MOLECULAR

The present invention provides a method for determining the prognosis for a patient diagnosed with a neurological disease. The present invention also provides a method for the identification of human subjects for placement in clinical drug trails of drugs being tested for the treatment of neurological disease and for determining a patient's future disease risk.

NEUROPROTECTIVE MODULATION OF NMDA RECEPTOR SUBTYPE ACTIVITIES

University of British Columbia

In various aspects, the invention provides methods and compositions for modulating NMDA receptor subtype activity, to enhance NR2A-containing NMDA receptor activity relative to NR2B-containing NMDA receptor activity, so as to effect a neuroprotective reduction in excitotoxic NMDA receptor activity.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ASSESSING OR DETECTING BRAIN INJURY AND NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

Queen's University

A method and apparatus is provided for diagnosing, assessing, or detecting brain injury and/or a neurological disorder of a subject. Objects are presented to the subject over a range of locations within the subject's workspace such that the subject can interact with at least some of the presented objects using either the right or left limb, or portion thereof, of a pair of limbs. Position data and/or motion data and/or kinetic data of the left and right limbs or portions thereof with respect...

REACT-ON-DEMAND (ROD) FABRICATION METHOD FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE PRINTED ELECTRONICS

Western University

A one-step react-on-demand (RoD) method for fabricating flexible circuits with ultra-low sheet resistance, enhanced safety and durability. With the special functionalized substrate, a real-time three-dimensional synthesize of silver plates in micro scale was triggered on-demand right beneath the tip in the water-swelled PVA coating, forming a three-dimensional metal-polymer (3DMP) hybrid structure of -7 µm with one single stroke. The as-fabricated silver traces show an enhanced durability...
