A Portable Infant Phototherapy Device
German Patent, 2023
Patent Number: 20 2023 103 378
The present disclosure seeks to provide a portable phototherapy device capable of illuminating phototherapy light from multiple sides for the treatment of neonatal jaundice, ranging from mild to severe hyperbilirubinemia in neonatal patients. The articulated device incorporates phototherapeutic light source(s) and structures for securing the light source(s) and for supporting the subject (generally an infant).
Additionally, the apparatus features mechanisms for the assembly and disassembly of its various embodiments and components, rendering it convenient for transportation and portability.
A Compact Composting Device for Waste Decomposition
German Patent, 2023
Patent Number: 20 2023 103 380
Composting is a widely acknowledged method for managing organic waste, transforming it into nutrient-rich humus that can be used as a natural fertilizer. This process involves the decomposition of organic matter by microorganisms, which break down the material into simpler compounds. Proper aeration, moisture, and temperature control are crucial factors in maintaining an efficient composting process. However, traditional composting methods often require manual turning of the compost pile, which can be an unpleasant and laborious task, particularly for those who are averse to handling decomposing waste. In many countries, people prefer not to make their hands dirty when handling and mixing the waste materials of the compost regularly, which is in contrast to the practices observed in some Western countries. This invention addresses this cultural preference by incorporating a churning mechanism that enables the effortless mixing of compost materials without the need for direct contact.
Indian Design Patent, 2017
Patent Number: 287986
The present invention is directed to a portable and compact double surface phototherapy device capable of delivering light radiation in an amount and wavelength to a subject suffering with hyperbilirubinemia or neonatal jaundice to achieve a desired effect. Main aim of this invention is to demonstrate the potential of no loss of irradiance using an enclosed space, ultimately delivering an effective phototherapy treatment to the neonates. The present invention specially relates to treat neonatal jaundice with high irradiance and without the loss of irradiance serving as a dual mode phototherapy device.
