Background Toothbrushes require flexibility to access all dental surfaces and remove plaque effectively, but they should also aim to prevent or limit overbrushing and consequent damage to teeth and gums. In two studies, the physical properties and cleaning performance of specialist test toothbrushes with flexible necks were compared to a reference...

Background : Toothbrushes require flexibility to access all dental surfaces and remove plaque effectively, but they should also aim to prevent or limit overbrushing and consequent damage to teeth and gums. In two studies, the physical properties and cleaning performance of specialist test toothbrushes with flexible necks were compared to a referenc...

Full-text available
Electrospun nanofiber nonwovens have been studied for applications in regenerative medicine since several years. Their structure resembles the extracellular matrix protein fiber network in biological tissues. Approaches to use electrospun nonwovens as 3-dimensional cell carrier scaffolds are often hindered by the small pore size of the nonwovens. T...

Implants or cell carriers made of biopolymers or biodegradable polymers are well suited for the regeneration of defects in various tissues. They act as an adhesion surface for autologous cells and provide sufficient stability. Electrospun nonwovens have a favourable surface to volume ratio and mimic the structure of the fiber proteins of the extrac...
Conference Paper
Electrospun polylactide (PLA) nanofiber nonwovens are promising candidates for applications in tissue engineering. They may combine the advantageous chemical properties of PLA with a highly porous three-dimensional structure, which promotes the transportation of nutrients and the cell proliferation into the scaffolds. In this work, we tested differ...

Electrospun nanofiber scaffolds of different polymers are used in tissue engineering to mimic the extracellular matrices with favourable conditions for cell growth and proliferation. Structures such as cavities, holes and cuts in the scaffolds can be used to optimize cell growth. We investigated the influence of different laser sources used for dir...

To optimize the cell colonization on electrospun polyamide nanofibers, the fiber scaffolds were processed with picosecond uv-laser irradiation. The ablation thresholds were determined in dry, wet and immersed condition. The morphology of the ablated areas was evaluated by confocal and scanning electron microscopy. It was found that the ablation thr...
Conference Paper
The work describes a sensor system to monitor traffic-related data such as the number, type, and speed of vehicles on a road. Essential components like networked intelligent embedded systems for sensor data acquisition and aggregation and the antenna configuration are described and explained. Results of the application are illustrated.
