  • Publication number: 20220203112
    Abstract: A system is provided for increasing skin rejuvenation of a region of a patient's skin comprising a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) frequency generator for constantly providing electromagnetic pulses to said region of a patient's skin and a deep tissue diathermy device for constantly applying heat to said region of a patient's skin up to temperature T. The system is adapted for simultaneously applying heat and PEMF to the region of a patient's skin. Application of the system increases skin rejuvenation such that the skin rejuvenation increase (SRI) is greater than the sum of the SRI provided by electromagnetic pulses increase and the SRI provided by the deep tissue diathermy device increase.

  • Publication number: 20220193326
    Abstract: A wound treatment system includes a processor coupled to sensor system(s), a power delivery system, an oxygen concentrator coupled to the power delivery system and including an oxygen outlet coupled to a restricted airflow enclosure provided by a dressing and located adjacent a wound site, and a negative pressure system that includes a negative pressure outlet coupled to the restricted airflow enclosure. The processor receives first sensor information from the sensor system(s), and uses the first sensor information to control the power provided from the power delivery system to the oxygen concentrator in order to control an oxygen flow created by the oxygen concentrator and provided through the oxygen outlet to the restricted airflow enclosure. When the processor receives second sensor information from the sensor system(s), it activates the negative pressure system to create a fluid flow from the restricted airflow enclosure and through the negative pressure outlet.

  • Patent number: 11364037
    Abstract: Devices and techniques for adjusting an alignment for a first metatarsal may include making a plurality of cuts along the length of the first metatarsal. In different applications of the technique, a plurality of transverse cuts may or may not be made intersecting the longitudinal cuts. In either case, the cuts can separate the first metatarsal into two individual portions and release a removable wedge of bone. The different portions of the metatarsal can be moved relative to each other to adjust an anatomical alignment of one portion relative to another portion, for example in multiple planes. After suitably adjusting the alignment of the different bone portions, the portions can be fixed together.

  • Patent number: 11344347
    Abstract: A bone plate kit may be provided for a foot or ankle orthopedic procedure, such as a lapidus procedure. In some examples, the bone plate kit includes a sterile container that holds multiple unicortical bone plate fasteners and one or more bone plates. For example, the kit may contain two bone plates configured to be used together during a tarsal-metatarsal fusion procedure. Each of the two bone plates may be configured to span different regions of a tarsal-metatarsal joint. The unicortical bone plate fasteners can be used to secure the two bone plates to the first metatarsal and medial cuneiform of a patient undergoing a procedure. In some configurations, one of the bone plates is a helical bone plate while the other bone plate may or may not be a helical bone plate.

  • Patent number: 11331733
    Abstract: A cast system, which includes: a padding layer configured to be disposed within a cast and support a portion of a patient's limb; a casting material which hardens around the padding layer and form an outer shell of the cast surrounding the patient's limb; and a wire saw configured to be disposed within the cast and extend along a longitudinal axis of the cast. The wire saw has a cutting surface which is at least partly enclosed by a plastic sheath. By enclosing the wire saw cutting surface in a plastic sheath, the saw does not lock up during the cutting operation, cutting is facilitated, allowing for easy and safe removal of the cast by pulling at least one end of the wire saw so as to cut through the outer shell of the cast.

  • Patent number: 11278337
    Abstract: A technique for correcting a bone deformity, such as a bunion, may be performed using a fulcrum. In some examples, the technique involves inserting a fulcrum between a first metatarsal that is anatomically misaligned with respect to a second metatarsal. The technique further includes preparing an end of the first metatarsal and preparing an end of a medial cuneiform opposing the end of the first metatarsal. In addition, a distal portion of the first metatarsal is moved toward the second metatarsal in a transverse plane, thereby pivoting a proximal portion of the first metatarsal about the fulcrum and reducing an intermetatarsal angle between the first metatarsal and the second metatarsal.

  • Patent number: 11276397
    Abstract: A system and method for improving the performance of a hands-free voice user interface system while minimizing the computational complexity without sacrificing performance. Specifically, when estimating the location of the talker for the purpose of steering a directional beam in the direction of the active talker. A hands-free voice user interface system requires a clean signal to be streamed to the cloud for recognition. One way to improve the speech signal is to estimate where the talker is and steer a beam in the direction of the active talker. To locate the talker to a localized position, a direction of arrival estimator (DOA) algorithm is used. DoA generally requires noise and echo free signal for optimal estimation, but it is computationally expensive to run audio pre-processing such as an acoustic echo cancellation for each microphone in microphone array.
