Traxon Spinal Cord Stimulator

Spinal Cord Injury Repair Device

This invention is astounding in it’s potential! It’s a surgically implanted electronic stimulator to repair damaged spinal cords. Amazingly, it restored movement to 100% of patients in clinical trials. Tragically, it never came to market because the managers running the business end of Dr. Z’s patent messed it up “big-league.” The whole project got so embroiled in legalities as to effectively squash an invention that may have helped Christoper Reeves (of  Superman fame) and countless others get up from their wheelchairs.

Intragastric Balloon

Intragastric Balloon

Dr. Z’s patent of a self-inflating and self-deflating intragastric balloon for weight-loss helped spawn an industry! The way it works is an obese patient swallows a pill that expands inside the stomach to take up space and make the stomach smaller. The smaller the stomach, the less food a person can comfortably ingest. Today, there are numerous versions of the balloon – all proven safe and effective. Did Dr. Z get rich off his invention? No, the patent was owned by the company he worked for – but he’s gratified so many people continue to benefit.

Self-Destructing Needle & Syringe

Self-destructing Needle & Syringe

Dr. Z  developed this concept for the World Health Organization while working in Geneva, Switzerland. The problem was that healthcare providers in 3rd world countries were re-using needles and syringes because they were in scarce supply. However, the practice was spreading disease thru infection and something needed to be done.  Accordingly, Dr. Z took to his lab and designed a  non-reusable needle and syringe. Following the 2008 financial crash, he placed the patents in the public domain so anyone can develop them. 

Brain Injury Repair

Brain Injury Repair

Dr. Z was one of the first researchers to grow nerve cells on microprocessors, and invented the associated multi-micro-electrode cable array. This technique allows scientists to implant a cell-chip hybrid device so that the brain is capable of incorporating its damaged neurons onto the device. The result enables detection of impulses inside the central nervous system, and also allows the use of those impulses to control certain functions that were lost by trauma.

Spinal Disc Disease

Spinal Disc Disease

Various pathological conditions affect the spinal intervertebral discs, and Dr. Z addressed their repair using electrical stimulation technology. Using a patented technique, an implantable device encourages the fibers of the damaged disc to undergo self-repair. The result is restoration of disc integrity, spine integrity, and the resultant reduction of associated pain.

Peripheral Nerve Injury

peripheral nerve injury

Dr. Z developed many devices and technologies for repairing damaged peripheral nerves. These involve the use of nerve cuffs, electrical stimulation devices, and nerve bridges to repair various types of nerve injuries. Studies have shown that his patented technology is capable of restoring nerve integrity where other interventions cannot. 

Central Nervous System Regeneration

Central Nervous System Regeneration

Much of how the central and peripheral nervous system responds to injury and attempts repair itself was elucidated by Dr. Z’s research. He has shown that transfer RNA, like DNA, codes for certain responses after nerve injury. Manipulation of this molecule will enable scientists to encourage damaged nerves to re-grow and regenerate following damage.

3D Medical Imaging

3D Medical Imaging

A technology which involves stereoscopic imaging was co-invented by Dr. Z with the specific purpose of imaging and documenting surgical procedures remotely. It is composed of a system which enables physicians, who may be thousands of miles from the patient, to perform surgery with robotic instruments. The technology also is capable of recording stereoscopic images for play-back and stereoscopic viewing, providing remote yet realistic images of surgical procedures.

Traumatized Skin Repair

Traumatized Skin Repair

A number of therapeutic techniques that were pioneered by Dr. Z to repair soft tissues are now under investigation around the world. These include application of exogenous electrical fields to damaged skin following injuries such as burns. Precisely oriented electrical fields accelerates dermal repair, and this has wide applications in skin grafting and closing surgical wounds.

Phonocardiography

Phonocardiography

Dr. Z developed an electrical stethoscope for listening to faint heart sounds often missed by conventional techniques. The device was approved by the FDA and involves a sensitive sound detector which is linked to an EKG sensor. An onboard computer associates the two signals and provides doctors with a high resolution of heart sounds, which can be slowed down for a more precise evaluation in fields such as neonatology.

Bio-absorbable Electronics

Bio-absorable Electronics

As the world approaches a time when increasing numbers of instruments are being implanted, Dr. Zannakis saw the need to developed a line of implantable electronic components which do not require removal once their electronic duty has been accomplished. All of Dr. Zannakis’s components are biocompatible, and instead of removal, automatically dissolve and become absorbed by the body. This technology obviates the need for a second surgical procedure to remove instrumentation, thereby reducing surgical trauma.

Management of Parkinson ’s Disease

Management of Parkinson's Disease

Key to managing Parkinson’s disease involves understanding of how fast the disease is progressing. Dr. Z has developed instrumentation to analyze how quickly the disease is developing and how strongly. This enables doctors to manage the disease with medicines which, when properly calibrated with understanding the disease’s progression, enables patients to get more from their medicines. Effectively, this technology prolongs a medicine’s effectiveness to enhance the patient’s quality of life.

Assessment of Torticollis Dysfunction

Assessment of Torticolis Dysfunction

As with other nervous system dysfunctions, management of spasmodic torticollis is based on knowing where the condition is and how it is progressing. Dr. Z’s technology uses hardware worn by the patient which contains sensors. These are linked to software for computer generated tasks which tell the doctor how a patient’s performance has changed from prior tests. Such knowledge takes the guesswork out of making adjustments in the patient’s medicines.

Assessment of Neuromuscular Stability

Neuromuscular Stability

As the population ages, postural instability is becoming an increasingly difficult problem. Dr. Zannakis has developed a technology which assesses a person’s posture and stability using computer assisted balance and motion detection. This generates a profile which can be used to predict whether a patient is at risk for falling. If a high-risk patient is identified, intervention can then be made in order to prevent serious injuries.

Fiber Optic Magnetometer Imaging

Fiber Optic Magnetometer Imaging

Detecting faint signals from the brain and heart non-invasively are a difficult problem, but one which would provide valuable information to doctors with patients having a brain injury or heart malfunction. Dr. Z developed a non-invasive technology which enables the capture of faint signals from these organs by applying new techniques first developed by the United States Navy. A fiber optic magnetometer detects tiny signals generated by these organs, and which cannot be detected by any other diagnostic device. Development of these instruments is important to the future of neurology and cardiology.

Implantable Electrodes

Implantable Electrode

Dr. Z designed, developed and constructed many different types of electrodes, all of which are for stimulating various soft tissues of the human body. Some designs are implantable, such as those used to repair the damaged spinal cord. Others are intended to be applied topically, to enhance skin repair as in the use of skin grafts for burns. Yet other electrodes are composed of non-toxic and biocompatible materials designed to decompose inside the body to obviate the need to remove them.

Surgical Instrumentation

Surgical Instrumentation

Dr. Z developed instruments for surgery and for deploying implantable medical devices. They were created primarily out of necessity for his own work, but found use in other fields. Many of these instruments are important to surgeons and researchers due to their general usefulness and design simplicity.

Post-Surgical Dressing

Post-surgical Dressing

Dr. Z has developed a post-surgical dressing intended to be used by patients immediately following surgery on virtually any part of the body. The dressing is a novel barrier design which prevents infection and allows the patient to perform activities of daily living without the restrictions imposed by other conventional dressings. The dressing is effective, easy to use, inexpensive, and enables the patient to recover faster.

Cranial Mobility Analyzer

Cranial Mobility Analyzer

Dr. Z. invented and developed a diagnostic system for detecting human cranial movements. The technology uses infrared reflectors applied to the head. A special camera system and software then detects tiny movements of the cranium. These movements indicate a patient’s overall neurological health. Alterations may herald disease or dysfunction so that the doctor can intervene before a problem progresses.
