With NYSSTLC’s Help, Heatsleeve Is Heating Up the Prosthetic Devices Market

Monday 11/13/2017

The last straw for Bryan Costello came one bitterly cold winter morning. Having lost part of his right leg in a motorcycle accident in 2011, Costello was now employed plowing driveways instead of working as a pipefitter for a nuclear plant in Upstate New York. On that particular 10ºF morning, his carbon fiber prosthetic—fitted snugly below the knee—“was really sucking in the cold, and I said to myself, ‘Are you kidding me?!’” Like many amputees, Costello suffers from circulation issues, numbness, and pain in his stump. Now the cold was biting hard. “After that, I went to my doctor and said, ‘So, where’s the heat?’ They didn’t know what to tell me.”

When he learned there are no warming solutions for amputees suffering from bad circulation, pain, and cold, Costello, a Liverpool, NY resident, began tinkering at home. First, he rigged up a small heating pad and applied that to his stump. It gave him immediate relief. This jury-rigged solution lead Costello to create a cup-like heating device to fit over his stump, rigged to a large battery. Thus, the Heatsleeve was born. Now—a few years later—Costello Prosthetic Warmers LLC is winning start-up competitions, creating buzz, and, thanks to assistance from the Syracuse University College of Law’s New York State Science and Technology Law Center (NYSSTLC), beta-testing advanced prototypes with organizations such as military veterans-oriented The Heroes Project ...

Gassing International Law

Tuesday 11/7/2017

(Re-published from The Jurist | Nov. 6, 2017) The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) should not ignore or walk away from the alleged use of any prohibited weapon, such as chemicals, as it signals it is permissible to violate the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and erodes international norms related to such weapons. Further, it signals that countries with deep ties to P5 (U.K., U.S., France, Russia, China) are outside the scope of UNSC authority, therefore creating a bigger issue of eroding the international authority of the UNSC and jeopardizing the foundation of international law ...
