  • Publication number: 20180243169
    Abstract: Single dose drug dosage form dispensing devices, and methods for operating such devices are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, an apparatus includes a housing defining an actuation pathway and a pusher. At least a portion of the pusher is disposed within the actuation pathway such that a distal end portion of the pusher and a distal end portion of the housing define a volume configured to contain a drug-containing tablet. The pusher is configured to move relative to the housing in a distal direction from a first position to a second position to expel the drug-containing tablet from the volume. The distal end portion of the pusher is extended from an opening in the housing when the pusher is in its second position. The housing is configured to limit movement of the pusher relative to the housing in a proximal direction from the second position of the pusher towards the first position of the pusher after the drug-containing tablet is expelled from the volume.

  • Patent number: 9566179
    Abstract: Devices and methods are provided for controlling and indicating the deployed length of an interventional element on an interventional catheter. The interventional element may be a stent or series of stents, a balloon, or any other interventional element for which length control is necessary or desirable. Devices for controlling the length of the interventional element include gear driven actuators, motors, and other mechanisms. Devices for indicating length of an interventional element to the user include sensors, detents, visual displays and other mechanisms providing visual, audible, and tangible indications of length to the user. The control and indication devices preferably work in tandem to enable highly precise adjustment of interventional element length.

  • Patent number: 7551427
    Abstract: A hard disk drive bracket includes a bezel, a lever arm attached to the bezel rotatably between a closed position against the bezel and an open position apart from the bezel, wherein a hard disk drive is locked into the hard disk drive bracket when the lever arm is in the closed position, and a multifunction wireform, wherein the multifunction wireform latches the lever arm in the closed position and releases the lever arm into the open position. The hard disk drive bracket may include a release button, wherein the multifunction wireform releases the lever arm upon pressing of the release button. The multifunction wireform may hold and bias the release button.
