  • Patent number: 10513011
    Abstract: A noncontact support system includes a table with a port layer having a pattern of interspersed pressure ports and vacuum ports. A pressure conduit layer includes a grid pattern of pressure conduits, connectable to a pressure source, each of the pressure ports being located on an axis passing through an intersection of at least two of the pressure conduits and substantially orthogonal to the grid pattern of pressure conduits. A vacuum conduit layer includes a grid pattern of vacuum conduits, connectable to a suction source, each of the vacuum ports being located on an axis passing through an intersection of at least two of the vacuum conduits and substantially orthogonal to the grid pattern of vacuum conduits. The grid pattern of vacuum conduits is laterally offset from the grid pattern of pressure conduits such that each intersection of pressure conduits is laterally offset from all intersections of the vacuum conduits.

  • Publication number: 20190381635
    Abstract: A noncontact support platform includes a plurality of pressure nozzles on an outer surface of a PV stage of the noncontact support platform. The pressure nozzles connected to a pressure source for creating an outflow of fluid through the pressure nozzles. A plurality of vacuum nozzles are interspersed with the pressure nozzles on the outer surface and are connected to a vacuum manifold via one or a plurality of hoses to create an inflow of the fluid through the vacuum nozzles. At least one flowmeter is configured to generate a signal that is indicative of a measured inflow via at least one hose of the hoses. A controller is configured to analyze the signal to determine whether the measured inflow is indicative of blockage of a vacuum nozzle and to generate a response when blockage is indicated.

  • Publication number: 20190183629
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described including inserting an implantable device (20) into a blood vessel of a subject while the implantable device is disposed inside a delivery device and is constrained in a constrained configuration by the delivery device. The implantable device is released from the delivery device into the blood vessel, thereby causing the implantable device to assume a non-constrained configuration by an upstream end of the implantable device radially expanding (120), a central portion (122) of the implantable device radially expanding such that along the central portion of the implantable device the inner surface (24) of the implantable device defines a diverging portion (25) of a conduit (26), and the implantable device forming a folded portion (128) between the upstream end of the implantable device and the central portion of the implantable device. Other applications are also described.
