AlixPartners Forecasts: Household Products Could Cost U.S. Manufacturers and Consumers 15% More This Year Due to Resin Shortage

While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing. But how is this process controlled, and with what specific tools? Read on.

New York Bone & Joint Specialists is at the forefront of orthopedic technology, with an exciting invention focused on preventing the development and/or progression of osteoarthritis of the knee.

At the same time, this invention can be used to promote and accelerate the healing of any orthopedically repaired tissue.

Leon E. Popovitz, MD, co-founder of New York Bone & Joint Specialists and top orthopedic surgeon in NYC, has invented a bone and joint implant device that has the potential to counteract the effects of osteoarthritis. As a result, the device would diminish the need for joint replacement surgery, and save billions of dollars in medical costs.

The invention is an anchor that increases blood circulation to soft tissue. It features a unique network of channels that are designed to maximize blood flow and rejuvenate vital structures, such as the meniscus, in a degenerating knee. Thus, a patient who suffers from the beginnings of osteoarthritis of the knee may completely avoid the long and painful process of managing their deteriorating joint and eventually receiving a knee replacement. Instead, their knee may become rejuvenated without the need for joint replacement surgery.

Dr. Popovitz and his team have completed bench testing and cadaver intraoperative testing for this patented implant. Further studies are still in process.

“Millions of people suffer from knee osteoarthritis and millions undergo extensive joint replacement therapy,” says Dr. Popovitz. “My implant serves to replenish circulation to the meniscus, which functions by protecting the knee joint from degeneration. The invention, therefore, works by preserving the knee joint itself.”
