  • Publication number: 20190336351
    Abstract: Compression bandage for use as the only bandage in a single-bandage system for compression therapy, comprising an elastic compression layer and an elastic comfort layer, of which at least 50% is permanently attached to the compression layer. The compression bandage has a full-stretch elongation (FSE) of between 25% and 60% beyond its unstretched length. Full-stretch elongation is defined as the elongation at which the second derivative (130) of a curve (110) showing tensioning force over longitudinal elongation has its global maximum (140).

  • Patent number: 9439907
    Abstract: The present application relates to the inhalation delivery of aerosols containing small particles. Specifically, it relates to a method of forming an aerosol for use in inhalation therapy. The method involves: (a) heating a substrate coated with a composition of a drug to form a vapor, wherein the coated composition is in the form of a film less than 10? thick; and, (b) allowing the vapor to cool, thereby forming an aerosol, which is used in inhalation therapy. In another aspect, a method of forming an aerosol for use in inhalation therapy is provided, wherein the method involves: (a) heating a substrate coated with a composition of a drug to form a vapor in less than 100 milliseconds, wherein the vapor has a mass greater than 0.1 mg; and, (b) allowing the vapor to cool, thereby forming an aerosol, which is used in inhalation therapy.

  • Patent number: 9308208
    Abstract: A method and device are provided to generate an aerosol having a desired particle sizes, i.e., from molecular to about 10 microns, which can be used to effectively deliver a physiologically active compound to organs and tissues such as the lung, eye, mucosa and skin. The aerosol is formed through vaporization of the compound while mixing the resulting vapor with a gas, in a ratio, to form the desired particle size when a stable concentration of particles in the gas is reached.
