Conventional complete dentures have been used for almost a century as a treatment choice for edentulous patients, despite of their inaccuracy & dimensional changes during manufacturing. Recently, new manufacturing techniques like RP/3D printing (rapid prototyping) has progressed in the dental field including prosthodontics, does the 3D printed complete denture show more accuracy than conventional ones?
Background: Previous studies report 0.4-1.5kg of weight gain during the holiday season, which may contribute to annual weight gain. Purpose: To test whether daily self-weighing (DSW) can prevent holiday weight gain. Hypothesis: We hypothesized that daily self-weighing would effectively prevent weight and fat gain, and that individuals with overweight and obesity would respond most favorably to DSW.
This study is evaluating the acceptability and feasibility of a 10 session parent-targeted phone-based childhood obesity treatment (n=40). A factorial design (2 X 2 X 2) will be used to examine the acceptability and feasibility of 3 intervention components: 1) the first session being conducted in person, 2) involving a second adult caregiver, and 3) a weekly weighing of child via WiFi-enabled scales.
This randomized control study (sponsored by the NIH, NIDDK) is aimed at reducing BMI in overweight adolescents at risk for the development of type 2 diabetes. The study will examine whether an integrated primary care, web and cell-phone-based intervention can produce initial and sustained improvements in anthropometric, behavioral, metabolic, and physiological outcomes in overweight adolescents. The primary goal is to reduce BMI (Body Mass Index)in overweight adolescents.
Study examined the effectiveness of daily self-weighing to prevent age related weight gain.
The purpose of the proposed study is to pilot a 6-month, cognitive-behavioral binge eating intervention, Appetite Awareness Training (AAT) to reduce binge eating and prevent weight gain for Black women with a BMI > 25 kg/m² and with weekly binge eating episodes. The proposed study will be a replication and extension study of our previous eight-week AAT intervention (Phase 1). The investigators will replicate the Phase 1 intervention in a new state (study was previously done in...
This study applies 3D-printed customized guide plate in assisting the accurate drilling of Kirschner wire in ankle arthrodesis. This technique can shorten the operation time, reduce the intra-operative radiation, and do not affect the surgical outcome.
A clinical study to evaluate the use of cell phones to support drug adherence and follow-up of patients taking antiretroviral therapy (ART) for treatment of HIV. The intervention involves health-care providers sending regular short-message-service (SMS) text messages to patients and following up their responses. The hypothesis is that the cell phone intervention will improve ART adherence and health outcomes compared with the current standard of care.
The aim of this non-interventional study is to evaluate the efficacy of a monofilament, mid-term absorbable suture material (Monosyn®) for anastomosis performed in the gastrointestinal tract using the frequency of anastomosis leakage as a primary parameter. Postoperative complication rate, length of hospital stay, costs, time to perform the anastomosis and handling will serve as secondary endpoints. The question is addressed, whether a monofilament suture material is as effe...

PRINT is a prospective mixed methods study exploring the feasibility and acceptability of providing 3-D printed orthotics specifically an ankle foot orthosis (AFO) to children and adolescents with cerebral palsy.
This study will use a longitudinal, experimental design. Participants will be randomized to either the intervention or the control group. The intervention will involve cell phone support, including reminders, assessment of barriers to adherence, problem solving and referrals conducted by an Adherence Facilitator. Control group participants will participate in all on-study evaluations, except the intervention exit interviews.
To investigate the acute effects of cell phone exposure on immediate attention levels and concentration of emergency department physicians
Symptoms are common among patients with advanced malignancy undergoing treatment, and yet often go unrecognized by treatment providers. In addition to contributing to morbidity, poorly controlled symptoms drive emergency room utilization and hospital admission in this population, representing significant cost to patients, families, and the health care system. Systematic collection of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) has been proposed as a way to arm providers with the informati...
