  • Patent number: 11406457
    Abstract: A system and computerized method for detection of engagement of a surgical tool to a tool drive of a robotic arm of a surgical robotic system. The method may include activating an actuator of the tool drive to rotate a drive disk to be mechanically engaged with a tool disk in the surgical tool. One or more motor operating parameters of the actuator that is causing the rotation of the drive disk are monitored while activating the actuator. The method detects when the drive disk becomes mechanically engaged with the tool disk, based on the one or more monitored motor operating parameters. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20210022664
    Abstract: A method of identifying a subdermal feature in a subject includes directing optical energy into a subject to photoacoustically generate ultrasonic waves from a dermal or subdermal feature in tissue. Signals representing ultrasonic waves that are generated from the dermal or subdermal feature are received. The signals representing the ultrasonic waves are processed to generate image data of the dermal or subdermal feature. It is determined from the image data that the dermal or subdermal feature is a non-healing skin lesion selected from the group including a pressure ulcer, a diabetic foot ulcer, an arterial insufficiency injury, a decubitus ulcer, a diabetic ulcer, and an insufficiency injury.

  • Patent number: 6904133
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for coupling a voiceband modem circuit to a common phoneline connector, the common phoneline connection having a ring line connection and a tip line connection which couples a ring/tip line pair to a subscriber loop circuit, the voiceband modem circuit operating in a voiceband modem operating frequency band and having a voiceband modem interface ring line and a voiceband modem interface tip line. The voiceband modem interface ring line is coupled to the ring line and the voiceband modem interface tip line is coupled to the tip line connection by inserting, between the ring line connection and the voiceband modem interface ring line and between the tip line connection and the voiceband modem interface tip line, a series pair of inductors. A first inductor of the series pair has a low inductance and a high self-resonant frequency and a second inductor of the series pair has a high inductance and low self-resonant frequency.
