Micro Sensors Prevent Injuries


Knee Micro Sensors
By: SIM_58

Just trying to ger some community feedback on a revolutionary product idea that is in the pre-design stage and to drum up some interest if there is any.

I started a companty that intends to design and build a knee injury prevention product that uses embedded microelectronicmechanical sensors (just above the nano level) and embedded rfid tags that will provide real-time monitoring of the internal ligaments, muscles, and bone and transmit this data wirelessly via mobile network to your phone or laptop.

This device will be called Protective and Reactive Integrated Sensors System "PARISS." PARISS will mitigate and prevent ACL, MCL, PCL, and LCL injuries in realtime even before the wearer is aware that he or she is in trouble. The sensors actually think for themselves.

The research and development will be done by a major university research team that specializes in sensors.

Please let me know what you think and provide me with constructive feedback.

 

Best,

Sensors In Motion

    One other question SIM_58, is the knee microsensor graduate team at University of Minnesota collaborating with your group?   Good luck & keep us posted.

    Hi SIM_58,

    Your project sounds interesting.   While we at Knee1 cover knees vs. investing in products to treat them, we feel a vested interest in seeing great therapies move forward.   In Indiana, you might consider contacting BioCrossroads for investment and advice- they have an excellent reputation and have helped friends of ours build their Indiana-based med tech businesses.   Please stay in touch as your idea progresses!

    Hi NYGP,

    Thanks for commenting on my post. The sensors will be embedded on a wearable brace or sleeve on the outside of the knee. I do not have a sketch or picture of the proposed concept because of intellectual / patent rights that still have to be neogiated between my company and Purdue University. Also, the research team at Purdue will not start on the design until investment funding is received. I have a white paper from them w/ an official proposal to do the work soon to follow.

    Please spread the word about my idea. I would also appreciate if you know of anyone who might want to invest to give me a shout and I would be more than willing to provide the bsuiness plan and proformas.

    V/r,
    SIM

    Hi SIM,

    It sounds interesting- where are the sensors embedded?   In a brace?   In the skin?   That would make a big difference obviously.    If done right, could be a big market, starting with athletes (football players, soccer, girls BB and then moving into those with chronic knee conditions.   Can you post a picture or sketch of the product?   Thanks, NYGP
