Dena Technologies, Inc. is a spin-off from The University of Texas at Dallas founded in 2011. The main product focuses on pressure map analytics. The advanced technology is directed to a platform for monitoring, prevention and management of pressure ulcer using pressure mapping system that records a patient's bed posture, as well as tracking different limbs along with associated statistical pressure image data, and produces a summary report for caregivers. The methodology allows caregivers to utilize the stress data to schedule the repositioning of patients more effectively, and allows continuous risk assessment based on the history of stress-recovery of a patient's body. Specifically, the product includes (i) time-stamped whole-body pressure distribution data collection and profiling; (ii) posture classification, (iii) limb detection and tracking; (iv) quality of turn and risk assessment; (v) turning schedule and nursing staff utilization for pressure ulcer management; and (vi) patient status reporting system customized for caregivers.

Interoperate.biz, Inc., has developed innovative, next generation legacy code migration technology. Using disruptive technology they can build automated translators to convert legacy or obsolete codes into their modern versions with ease. On February 15, 2008, Hewlett-Packard announced the End-Of-Life of the HP Software (former Mercury Interactive) WinRunner functional testing automation tool. Using its disruptive technology, Interoperate has built a translator (called WR2QTP) for converting the code of Hewlett Packard (HP) Corp.'s WinRunner GUI testing tool to HP's QuickTest Pro GUI testing tool.
Using Interoperate's advanced WR2QTP tool, this migration can be accomplished with ease. Alternative solutions are either manual or achieve less than 80% automation. WR2QTP exceeds 97% automation resulting in shorter time, lower cost and higher quality for WinRunner to QTP migration.
Medical Nanotechnologies is revolutionizing the way cancer is treated by developing nanoparticle-based therapies and drug delivery systems to enable precise, on-demand patient care. Their primary product lines are non-invasive, localized hyperthermic therapies for cancer patients with solid tumors. Their core platform is based on functionalized nanostructures, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene oxide nanoparticles, which can be delivered to the tumor and irradiated by an external field such as near-infrared (NIR) light. Upon NIR irradiation, the nanoparticles rapidly heat up. Depending on the amount of heat generated, which can be controlled, this rapid, localized heat enhances delivery of therapeutic agents such as DNA, proteins, and chemotherapies. The result is a cancer-targeting approach which lowers the typical amount of drug required for treatment and eradicates the tumor while minimizing damage to normal cells.
