  • Publication number: 20100286766
    Abstract: A modified medical device substrate surface designed to improve adhesion of biomimetic surfactants to the medical device surface, thus reducing the risk of thrombosis is described. The surface modification is accomplished through either an application of a tie layer of a hydrophobic material on the substrate surface intermediate the biomimetic coating or through incorporation of a hydrophobic dopant in the polymeric substrate prior to extrusion or molding. Either method creates a hydrophobically modified surface that enhances the biomimetic surfactant bonding strength.

  • Publication number: 20100243808
    Abstract: A shape-change material includes a shape memory material layer with an electrically conductive layer on a surface of the shape memory material layer. The conductive material may be used to heat the shape memory material by electrical resistance heating. The conductive material may be a primary heater, providing the heating to cause softening or shape change in the shape memory material, or may be a secondary heater in conjunction with a greater amount of heating from a primary heater, such as a conductive plate that provides electrical resistance heating to a surface of the shape memory material on an opposite side of the shape memory material from the conductive material. One use for the shape-change material is as the skin material for a shape changing material.

  • Patent number: 7799421
    Abstract: The invention relates to polymers whose water solubility may be triggered by changes in pH, salt concentration, concentration of surfactant or a combination of both. The polymer is a copolymer or terpolymer containing from 2 to 60 mole percent of an amine functionality that has been neutralized with a fixed acid. Specifically films formed from these polymers will be insoluble at a higher pH, but will become soluble at a lower pH. The polymers are also insoluble at a higher salt concentration, but become soluble at a lower salt concentration. The polymers can be used to coat or encapsulate active ingredients, that are released based on changes in the environment, such as in the rinse cycle of a dishwasher or laundry washing machine.
