Implantable analyte sensor

InactiveUS20050245799A1Improved patient convenienceConvenient careCatheterDiagnostic recording/measuringAnalyteMiniaturization
Abstract of the DisclosureAn implantable analyte sensor including a sensing region for measuring the analyte and a non-sensing region for immobilizing the sensor body in the host. The sensor is implanted in a precisely dimensioned pocket to stabilize the analyte sensor in vivo and enable measurement of the concentration of the analyte in the host before and after formation of a foreign body capsule around the sensor. The sensor further provides a transmitter for RF transmission through the sensor body, electronic circuitry, and a power source optimized for long-term use in the miniaturized sensor body.

Suture passing device

ActiveUS20200054317A1Minimizing jaw movementMinimize movementSuture equipmentsSurgical needlesAnatomySurgery
A suture passing device includes a jaw assembly that is moved to an open configuration after exiting a hollow needle distal tip and moved to a closed configuration when retracted into the needle tip. The jaw assembly may include a pair of jaw members biased to a default diverging configuration. A suture capturing mechanism formed on the jaw members securely captures suture to both push and pull the captured when the jaw assembly is retracted into the hollow distal tip. The device may also include a second suture capturing mechanism that loosely captures suture and enables the captured suture to slide.

Vacuum-based catheter stabilizer

A medical probe for use with tissue includes an elongate member having a proximal end and a distal end, an operative element carried at the distal end of the elongate member, and a stabilizer configured for applying a vacuum force to secure the operative element relative to the tissue. A method of performing a medical procedure on a patient includes introducing a medical probe having an operative element within the patient, the operative element being adjacent a target tissue, applying a vacuum force between the medical probe and the target tissue to secure the operative element relative to the target tissue, and operating the operative element to perform the medical procedure on the target tissue while the operative element is secured relative to the target tissue.

Storage unit and system

A storage unit configured to store and display items such as wine bottles includes a frame member including a top, a base and a plurality of vertically extending walls. A plurality of shelves are slidably attached to the frame member and configured to store a plurality of items. At least one insert may be positioned within the plurality of shelves to provide a support for the items contained therein. A strap, having a first end and a second end and extending substantially transverse to the front edge of the plurality of shelves is also provided and prevents the plurality of shelves from sliding. The shelves may be removed from the frame member and stored on a top surface of the frame member to reconfigure the storage space within the storage unit.

Temperature compensation system for a coordinate measuring machine

A machine, such as a coordinate measuring machine, having a component or element movable with respect to a support structure along rails or guideways, wherein the rails have a coefficient of thermal expansion that is different from that of the support structure to which they are attached. Differential thermal expansion and contraction of the rails with respect to the support structure may be accommodated without binding or distortion of the rails by coupling each guideway to the support structure at two different points. Typically, the coupling at the first point is rigid and prevents any movement of the rail with respect to the support structure. The second coupling includes a flexible component that permits movement of the rail with respect to the support structure in a direction of movement of the element or component. This flexible component may be a leaf spring. In another embodiment, the first coupling may also be flexible. A method is also disclosed for accommodating differential thermal expansion and contraction of the rail with respect to the support structure by providing first and second couplings between the rail and support structure wherein at least the second coupling includes a flexible component that permits movement of the rail with respect to the support structure in a direction generally parallel to the direction of movement of the machine element.
