  • Patent number: 10639407
    Abstract: A device for expressing human breast milk has a breast shield for bearing against a mother's breast, a vacuum pump for generating a vacuum, a line which connects the vacuum pump to the breast shield and is intended for transmitting the vacuum generated to the breast shield, and a chamber. The line ends on the pump side in a first port of the chamber. The chamber has a second port for connection to a milk collecting container. The two ports in the chamber are connected to each other in terms of fluid communication. During the expressing operation, the line forms a milk line for transporting breast milk expressed in the breast shield to the chamber and from the chamber to the milk collecting container. The pump can be designed to be quiet and small.

  • Patent number: 10590645
    Abstract: An element for thermal insulation between two building parts, including an insulating body to be arranged between the two building parts and reinforcement elements in the form of at least tensile elements, extending in the installed state of the element essentially horizontally and perpendicularly to the essentially horizontal extension of the insulating body through said body, and respectively projecting in the horizontal direction from the insulating body and here allowing a connection to one of the two building parts preferably made from concrete. The tensile reinforcement elements are formed as multi-part composite elements such that at least in the area of the insulating body they exhibit a central section projecting from the insulating body and at least partially being made from fiber-reinforced synthetic material.

  • Patent number: 10588644
    Abstract: A distal targeting device for a surgical instrument includes a field generator having a coupling element configured to receive a shaft that is elongate along an axis and a bridge connectable to the field generator so as to be spaced from the field generator in a proximal direction with respect to the axis. The bridge includes an attachment device that is connectable to a tool that is configured to manipulate the shaft. The bridge also includes a pair of arms configured to clasp a body of the tool in a manner substantially rigidly coupling the bridge to the tool. At least one of the arms is positionable with respect to the attachment member at a distance that is adjustable so as to enable the arms to substantially rigidly clasp tool bodies having one or more of various shapes and sizes.

  • Publication number: 20190352899
    Abstract: A connector element for installation between a building fixture component and a building, including an insulating body for creating a thermal insulation between the building fixture component and the building. The insulating body has a first edge region on the building side and a second edge region on the side of the building fixture component, and includes a force absorption element with a first extension portion arranged on the building side, and a second extension portion arranged on the side of the building fixture component. The force absorption element exerts a resistance force counter to a force emanating from the building fixture component and has a force-path characteristic which defines the resistance force in dependence on a relative movement of the building fixture component relative to the building.

  • Patent number: 10436276
    Abstract: A damping valve includes a valve body with a stepped opening for receiving a preloading spring which acts on a tension rod at which is arranged a valve disk which at least partially closes a flow-out orifice of a flow channel which connects two opposite valve body sides to one another, and, in addition to the preloading spring force, a damping force which counteracts a swiveling movement of the valve disk acts on the tension rod. The additional damping force is formed by a displacer on the tension rod side. The display together with a portion of the stepped opening, forms a restrictor chamber.

  • Patent number: 8591512
    Abstract: An implant comprises a deformable gas tight sack. The sack comprises a first chamber in fluid communication with an obturatable opening, the chamber filled or fillable with a filling material filling the first chamber. The implant is configured such that when one or both of a gas and fluid surrounding the filling material is removed from the first chamber through the opening, a wall of the first chamber forms around and holds the filling material. This causes the implant to transition from a relatively flexible insertion state to a relatively rigid fixation state in which the implant is fixable in the target portions of bone.
