  Biopsy Gun XrayTo3D Total Knee Arthroplasty
Variable Length Multi-Use Biopsy Gun is used to take a small sample of tissue without infecting the intervening tissue, with the additional advantage of adjustable length of firing, besides being easier to operate.

Development team includes Shivam Mittal,IIT Bombay and Dr. Manish Agarwal, Hinduja Hospital.

Current status: The device has been prototyped and is under mechanical testing.

Patent filed: S. Mittal, R. Ghyar, M. Agarwal, B. Ravi, S. S. Kulkarni, "Variable Length Multi-Use Biopsy Gun".

XrayTo3D program reconstructs 3D models of bone from just one or two X-ray images. Unlike CT-based models, this involves much less radiation and cost.

Development team includes Vikas Karade, PhD Research Scholar, and Amit Maurya, BETiC, IIT Bombay, with inputs from Dr. Manish Agarwal, Hinduja Hospital

Current status: The algorithm has been implemented in TABPlan, a tablet-based software for planning surgeries related to knee arthritis and bone deformities.

Patent filed: V. Karade, A portable system and method for 3-dimensional surgery planning using conventional 2-dimensional x-ray images

Total Knee Arthroplasty Prosthesis currently serves as a solution for osteoarthritis. Imported prosthesis when used in Indian patients causes abnormalities as the anatomical difference in the knee size. A modular design will help in fine adjustments of dimensions of individual components.

Development team includes Ahilan, IIT Bombay and Dr. Vijay Shetty, Hiranandani Hospital, Mumbai.

Current status: The device has been manufactured with the static evaluation in FEA presently completed. Dynamic testing in FEA is underway.

Patent Filed: A.Ahilan, R. Ghyar, V. Shetty, B. Ravi, " Modular Total Knee Arthoplasty Prosthesis".
