Presentation Transcript

  1. DynaForm Cushion Maximizing the comfort of wheelchair bound individuals Todd Kirschen Engineering/Business Development

  2. PatientPatents – What We Do • Health care professionals approach us with an idea for a medical device • We pay ALL the costs for • Research • Prototyping • Patent Development (Intellectual Property) • Marketing/Licensing • The inventor shares in the profits

  3. The Problem Presented to Us • Disabled people who are constrained to a wheelchair for day to day living often suffer from decubitus ulcers and other maladies as a result of long term sitting. • We want a cushion with better weight distribution which will create comfort for the user as well as eliminate sores and improve posture

  4. What We Know About the Current Design • Body weight is carried by a unique 3-D array of levers that conform to the body and uniformly distribute tissue pressure within each of the seat quadrants

  5. The DynaForm Cushion • We currently have a prototype • Tested and patented • Can be improved

  6. The DynaForm Cushion

  7. The DynaForm Cushion

  8. The DynaForm Principle

  9. What We Know About the Current Design • Detailed pressure distribution studies were performed by the University of Pittsburg confirming this assumption • Materials of construction can be improved

  10. Study Results

  11. Study Results

  12. What We Are Looking For • Unique Solutions to the Existing Problem • Improved Design • Mechanical/Structural • Dimensions/Weight • Material Selection • Cushioning Surfaces • Internal Mechanisims • Considerations • Manufacturing and Fabrication Solutions • Cost

  13. Why work with PatientPatents, Inc. (PPI)? • Experienced team of clinicians, engineers, patent attorneys and market analysts • Team is led by a physician-attorney who has a background in intellectual property • Licensees minimize internal R&D expenditures by outsourcing product development

  14. Why work with PatientPatents, Inc. (PPI)? • Extensive screening process assures that only the most promising submissions are accepted for development • Thorough and comprehensive research conducted on product value and marketability before presentation to potential licensees
