Read the stories of technologies and knowledge of experts from Masaryk University that have been successfully put into practice. Our examples involve various fields and areas and show what paths can an invention or a solution take on its way from the university into practice.
Biomechanical Footwear: Healing Collaboration
Walking is the most natural movement. Unfortunately, nowadays most people walk in a wrong way, which can cause serious health problems. The solution comes the Boty J HANÁK R, Ltd. Company and the team of Assoc. Prof. Martin Zvonař from the Faculty of Sport Studies of MU.
New Detection Cell for Flow Analysis
A team of scientists from the Faculty of Science of MU, created in cooperation with the Brno University of Technology a device for even distribution of liquid flow into several channels for flow analysis. The solution has great potential for application, a fact that is proved by selling the license to the company of Ing. Milan Jílek.
The diagnostic kit based on the patent of the scientists from the Faculty of Medicine, allows physicians to diagnose pulmonary diseases caused by the Aspergillus fungus on time. The testing kit has been launched onto the market by the Generi Biotech Company, which bought the right to use the patent from MU.
Plasma Technologies Conquer Industry
The Department of Physical Electronics at the Faculty of Science of MU has more than a 50-year tradition of applied research in plasma physics. The work of its scientific teams has already led to several successful industrial innovations. Since 2010, the support of applied research has risen dramatically thanks to the project of R&D Centre CEPLANT.
Interactive Educational Applications
The Corinth Company specializes in developing interactive educational applications with a touch user interface. In 2013 they created the Corinth Classroom Application aimed at human tissue structures. The app´s visual content was created in collaboration with the Department of Biology at the Faculty of Education of MU.
Zoo Visitor App
Students of computer linguistics at the Faculty of Arts of MU developed an application for smart phones and tablets for Brno Zoo visitors. The visitors get the app for free. They’ll be able to find the animal that interests them in the list, or by scanning a QR code next to the enclosure. The project was supported by the TTO MU.
