Patents Assigned to Medos International S.A.R.L.
  • Patent number: 9345813
    Abstract: Implantable medical devices, and methods of coating same, including a plurality of components disposed on a substrate, and a low surface energy layer deposited as a liquid over at least a first portion of the components and the substrate, the low surface energy layer becoming solidified after deposition and conforming to at least the first portion of the components. The devices further include a biocompatible hermetic coating conforming to and sealingly covering at least a portion of the low surface energy layer.

  • Patent number: 9220876
    Abstract: Integrated tools for noninvasively reading and adjusting an implantable, magnetically adjustable valve, and methods of use are disclosed. The tools include magnetic or electronic reading of the valve, and magnetic or electromagnetic adjustment of the valve. In use, the tools are positioned above or in contact with the patient's skin, in proximity to the valve.

  • Patent number: 9131896
    Abstract: A pressure sensor having a substrate and a first, deformable membrane, partially supported by the substrate, which generates a first sensor reading when deformed by pressure. A second membrane is contiguous to the first membrane. When the second membrane is energized, it deforms the first membrane to alter the first sensor reading.

  • Patent number: 8313819
    Abstract: An implantable medical device including a plurality of components on a substrate, and a biocompatible multi-layer coating applied by vapor deposition to conform to and sealingly cover at least a portion of the components and/or the substrate. The coating is applied in at least two sets, each set having first, second and third layers. At least one of the first, second and third layers consist essentially of a polymer such as parylene and at least one of the other two layers of the set consist essentially of inorganic material such that each layer differs in at least one diffusion barrier property from the other layers in the set and adds to an overall barrier effect of the coating.

  • Patent number: 8313811
    Abstract: An implantable medical device including a plurality of components on a substrate, and a biocompatible multi-layer polymeric coating applied by vapor deposition to conform to and sealingly cover at least a portion of the components and/or the substrate. The coating is applied in at least two pairs of layers, wherein each pair has one layer formed by dissociation of a precursor and then simple deposition of that precursor, and the other layer is formed by at least one of plasma dissociation and excitation of the precursor to form a plasma-enhanced precursor, and then deposition of the plasma-enhanced precursor.
