Each year Georgia Tech develops hundreds of technologies, and we seek industry collaborators to license and take those technologies from our labs to the market. Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.
Our available technologies are updated periodically but please feel free contact the Office of Industry Engagement team for additional technologies and information.
7541 – This technology is a sensor-based device integrated into fabrics called PUPS (pressure ulcer prevention system) that will detect and assist in the prevention of pressure ulcers. Background: Patients that are confined to a bed or wheelchair are at high risk of developing pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are a high-cost infection across the spectrum of healthcare settings and populations... Read More
5363 – A pediatric-specific CRRT device that increases safety, improves fluid accuracy, and reduces extracorporeal blood volume Background: Approximately 5000 children annually in the U. S. require continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). Acute kidney injury is common in critically ill children and some form of adjunct support is often vital to provide fluid and electrolyte clearance until... Read More
5856 – This technology is a prosthetic device for replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Background: The ACL is a load bearing structure connecting the femur to the tibia. ACL tearing is a relatively common knee injury often requiring surgical reconstruction; a procedure in which the damaged ACL is replaced with a graft suspended between tunnels drilled in the tibia and femur....

7535 – This technology is a novel use of the biopolymer hyaluronan for use in polymer grafting on biomaterials. Background: Interface control has been pivotal in a wide range of biomaterial applications. Of particular interest is the use of polymer brushes to control architectural features that can be manipulated to tune interfacial properties. However, the use of polymer brushes are seldom...

7485 – Background: Cochlear implants simulate the auditory nerve and provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing. More than 45,000 are sold annually and the demand is predicted to grow steadily over time due to an aging global population, increased diagnosis of acquired hearing loss, improvements in cochlear implant technology, and significant...

5351 – This technology is a specialized microprocessor that is specifically designed to control digital modulation systems. Background: Current digital radio frequency memory technology (DRFM) is largely human powered, lacks standard formats, has opportunities for misinterpretation, requires the implementer with every change, slow, error-prone, and expensive. There is a need for a technique... Read More
6070 – A magnesium composite based biomedical implant device with tunable degradability that is non-toxic. Background: Current materials for biomedical implants are either non-degradable or too weak. As a result, the healing process can be compromised; resulting in additional surgeries and increased pain to the patient. These devices are made of either non-degradable metals, which can cause...

7819 – Homogenously mixed matrix membranes beneficial to molecular separation processes Background: Porous organic cages (POCs) are individual molecules that are permeable and soluble in common solvents. The organic cages are first synthesized then separately and assembled into a solid state to allow for solution-processing tunability. Conventional membranes composed of crystalline or... Read More
7721 – A fluidized bed cooling system to decrease the cost of raising larvae and increase the efficient use of their growing space Background: Black soldier fly larvae are of growing importance as a sustainable protein source for animal feed. When larvae are raised commercially, they are grown in large numbers in enclosed spaces to maximize yield, however, this can lead to larvae death due to... Read More
7677 – A method for improving the efficiency of thermoelectric devices Background: Thermoelectric (TE) materials convert heat into electricity (e.g., TE generators) and electricity into cooling (e.g., TE coolers). All TE devices require that the TE materials are connected electrically in series and thermally in parallel. The overall efficiency of the device is dependent on how the method... Read More
