  • Patent number: 11327931
    Abstract: A structured testing method for diagnostic or therapy support of a patient with a chronic disease and devices thereof are disclosed which implement a structured collection procedure based on a medical use case and/or question which provides at least one or more parameters defining entry criterion, a schedule of events, adherence criterion, and exit criterion. The entry criterion establish conditions needed to be met prior to obtaining biomarker data from the patient. Each event can include one or more of a performance time, patient guidance to perform the event, a request for information from the patient a request for patient action, and a request for collection of biomarker data from the patient. The adherence criterion can be used to assess whether an event performed is acceptable to addressing the medical use case and/or question, and the exit criterion establishes conditions needed to be met prior to exiting the collection procedure.

  • Publication number: 20220074483
    Abstract: An oil management system for a vehicle includes a differential housing, a transmission housing, a lubricant tank, a suction line, a lubricant pump, and an air suction pump. The transmission housing is connected to the differential housing in an air-tight manner, and a lubricant through-passage is defined between the transmission housing and the differential housing. The lubricant tank is provided in the differential housing and has a lubricant suction opening in a lower region. The lubricant pump conveys lubricant from the lubricant tank through the suction line and conducts the lubricant to the lubrication points in the differential housing and the transmission housing. The air suction pump pumps air from the lubricant tank into the transmission housing so that an excess air pressure is maintained in the transmission housing.

  • Patent number: 11187310
    Abstract: A gear mechanism includes at least a first and a second shaft, and at least a first and a second switching group arranged between the first and the second shafts. Each of the switching groups includes at least two transmission units which are individually switched and have a different transmission ratio. The first switching group is movable into active connection with the first shaft by a planetary stage which is constructed such that a mechanical power which is introduced via the first shaft is transmitted to the second shaft via a first or a second power path. At least one transmission unit of the first switching group is associated with each power path and in at least one switching state of the first switching group, the power flow extends over at least one transmission unit of the first and the second power path.

  • Patent number: 7254156
    Abstract: A dye-laser includes a resonator formed between two mirrors. The resonator has a longitudinal Z-axis and transverse X- and Y-axes perpendicular to each other and perpendicular to the Z-axis. A beam of laser radiation circulates in the laser resonator generally in a path along the Z-axis. An optical arrangement is provided for expanding the circulating beam in the Y-axis in one circulation direction and correspondingly compressing the expanded beam in the opposite circulation direction. A diffraction grating having rulings parallel to an X-Z plane of the resonator is located in the resonator in the path of the Y-axis expanded beam.
