Life Patch International is developing wearable patches for sleep applications. In some embodiments, a system for providing comfort of a person can include a wearable patch configured to be attached to a skin of the person and sense a biological condition of the skin, and to transmit information representative of the sensed biological condition. The system can further include a controller configured to receive the information and generate a control signal. The system can further include an adjustment element associated with a furniture item implemented to support and provide comfort for the person. The adjustment element can be in communication with the controller and be configured to adjust a comfort level of the furniture item for the person in response to the control signal.

As pluripotent stem cells differentiate in vitro into a mixture of different lineages, purification of the differentiated cells, as well as separation from their tumor-forming progenitors, is essential for applications to regenerative medicine. Unfortunately, conventional separation techniques require labeling or genetic modification, neither of which is ideal for such clinical applications. Biopico is developing an ‘On-the-Fly Field-potential Sensing Electrod Track’ (OFFSET) microdevice for label-free cell sorting of induced pluripotent stem cells and their differentiated progeny based on response to electrical stimulation.
CBio is a hardware company leveraging machine vision and their proprietary cell analysis platform to accelerate solutions in AgTech, BioTech, CleanTech, and Defense. Their technology helps researchers studying live cells make better decisions.
They manufacture and sell Vision™ and cellPhoresis™ device and delight their customers by removing their cell analysis bottlenecks.

More than two million survivors of stroke are living in the U.S. with substantial upper extremity impairment but with little appropriate technology to exercise their arms and hands at home. Hundreds of thousands of other people with high-level spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophies, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and cerebral palsy are in a similar situation. Flint has developed prototypes of devices for exercising the arm and hand that show great promise for providing engaging, intense, effective home-based therapy.
Garblecloud Inc. is a small, fairly new computer software & application development company started in Riverside, California. It opened in 2013 and now has an estimated $78,000 in yearly revenue and 1 employee.
GK Materials is commercializing a biomimetic approach to new dynamic self-healing nanocomposite materials that can spontaneously repair themselves after mechanical damage. The modular synthesis from off-the-shelf components and programmable emergent multifunctionality inherent to the design makes GK’s system highly promising for the development of commercial self-healing materials with dramatically improved safety, lifetime, energy efficiency, and environmental impact, for a wide range of applications, including aerospace.
The ability to spontaneously heal injury is a key biomaterial feature that increases the survivability and lifetime of most plants and animals. In sharp contrast, synthetic materials usually fail after damage or fracture. In pursuit of self-healing synthetic materials, research groups have employed additive, healing agent, and external triggering strategies, each resulting in price/performance compromises that prevent commercial viability.
Embedded Micro Devices (EMDs) Integra Devices has proprietary, patented technology that allows us to design and build microdevices directly within substrates for microelectronic packages and printed circuit boards. Based on over 15 years of research at UC Irvine, Integra’s technology has been proven to build embedded devices that have good performance, high manufacturing yield, excellent reliability, and unique functionality. Unlike traditional silicon MEMS devices, Integra’s EMDs are strong, durable, and easilty integrated into standard electronics. Furthermore, Integra’s EMDs generally do not require packaging after manufacture. Integra’s unique technology allows EMDs to be manufactured by third party manufacturers without the need for expensive and single-purpose tools. Instead, manufacturers use equipment that are already readily available to the microelectronics manufacturing industry. Integra is partnering with select high precision manufacturers in the US, Europe, and Asia to build devices for Integra’s customers. Integra’s manufacturing partners are licensed to produce embedded microdevices using Integra’s technology.
Neptune Diagnostics launch product B&F Alert is a PCR based diagnostic that provides advance warning of “on-coming” bulking and foaming events in Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs). B&F Alert allows WWTP to take preventative action, to avoid extra economic costs, maximize energy recovery, save headaches and management time. B&F Alert, if widely accepted has the potential to end bulking and foaming which has plagued the industry since its inception, as well as help building more sustainable wastewater facilities.
