ID: 2018-045 A cylindrical shaft that conceals curved-links (developable) four-bar mechanisms that performs different tasks
Technologies
ID: 2018-032 Developable mechanisms are devices that emerge from or conform to developable (curved) surfaces.
Technologies
ID: 2018-031 The SDSR is origami-based, fabricated using planar materials, folds up to stow into small volumes, self-deploys, maintains stiffness, and is retractable.
Technologies
ID: 2017-074 A compliant-mechanism, coiled, disc replacement that can be implanted using a minimally invasive surgical approach from the posterior, lateral, or anterior aspect.
Technologies
ID: 2017-071 A membrane-enhanced lamina emergent torsion (M-LET) joint to constrain motion in undesired directions while not inhibiting the motion in the desired direction of the joint.
Technologies
ID: 2016-003 This invention allows for a folding mechanism with rigid panels to unfold to a planar flat position and then fold into a configuration where the panels are stacked parallel to one another and offset perpendicular to one another.
