34989 results about "Cushion" patented technology

A cushion is a soft bag of some ornamental material, stuffed with wool, hair, feathers, polyester staple fiber, non-woven material, or even paper torn into fragments. It may be used for sitting or kneeling upon, or to soften the hardness or angularity of a chair or couch. Decorative cushions often have a patterned cover material, and are used as decoration for furniture.

Method and apparatus for integrating manual input

Apparatus and methods are disclosed for simultaneously tracking multiple finger and palm contacts as hands approach, touch, and slide across a proximity-sensing. compliant, and flexible multi-touch surface. The surface consists of compressible cushion, dielectric, electrode, and circuitry layers. A simple proximity transduction circuit is placed under each electrode to maximize signal-to-noise ratio and to reduce wiring complexity. Such distributed transduction circuitry is economical for large surfaces when implemented with thin-film transistor techniques. Scanning and signal offset removal on an electrode array produces low-noise proximity images. Segmentation processing of each proximity image constructs a group of electrodes corresponding to each distinguishable contact and extracts shape, position and surface proximity features for each group. Groups in successive images which correspond to the same hand contact are linked by a persistent path tracker which also detects individual contact touchdown and liftoff. Combinatorial optimization modules associate each contact's path with a particular fingertip, thumb, or palm of either hand on the basis of biomechanical constraints and contact features. Classification of intuitive hand configurations and motions enables unprecedented integration of typing, resting, pointing, scrolling, 3D manipulation, and handwriting into a versatile, ergonomic computer input device.

Sandwiched stapler type alimentary tract anastomosis dissecting sealer

The invention discloses a sandwiched stapler type alimentary tract anastomosis dissecting sealer, relating to the surgical instruments. The invention provides a sandwiched stapler type alimentary tract anastomosis dissecting sealer which can prevent the alimentary tract anastomotic stoma from tearing, leaking and errhysis from the cut section in surgical operations. The sandwiched stapler type alimentary tract anastomosis dissecting sealer is provided with a nail anvil (which is also called as a bottom needle holder), a nail cartridge (which is also called as a nail anvil box), a sealer body, a movable handle, an adjusting button, a cutter cushion and an anastomosing nail (which is also called as a suturing nail), wherein the nail anvil is connected with the front end of the sealer body, the adjusting button is arranged at the tail part of the sealer body, the movable handle is arranged at the back of the sealer body, a safety button is arranged at the connection of the movable handle and the sealer body, the cutter cushion is arranged on the nail anvil, the anastomosing nail is arranged at the front end part of the sealer body, a membrane is arranged on the surface of the nail anvil (which is also called as the bottom needle holder), and a membrane is also arranged on the surface of the nail cartridge (which is also called as the nail anvil box); and after stapling, a sandwich structure consisting of the membrane, an intestinal wall and the membrane is formed.

Deployment system for an expandable device

The present invention is directed to a deployment system for an endoluminal device. The deployment system includes a confining sheath placed around a compacted endoluminal device. A deployment line is provided in the system that is an integral extension of the sheath. As the deployment line is actuated, the sheath retracts from around the compacted endoluminal device. As the sheath retracts from around the endoluminal device, material from the sheath may be converted into deployment line. Once the sheath is retracted from around the compacted endoluminal device, the endoluminal device expands in configuration and repairs vascular or cardiac structures of an implant recipient. Any remaining sheath material is removed from the implantation site along with the deployment line. The deployment system also includes an endo-prosthesis mounting member placed between the endoluminal device and an underlying catheter. The endo-prosthesis mounting member serves to cushion and retain the endoluminal device when constrained by the sheath and may assist in expansion of the endoluminal device when unconstrained by the sheath. The present invention is also directed to a deployment system having a deployment assembly that simultaneously expands an endo-prosthesis mounting member while removing a sheath from an expandable medical device.
