  • Patent number: 10285731
    Abstract: A polyp removal device includes an outer tubular body; an inner tubular body; a tubular cutter coupled to or formed as part of the distal end of the inner tubular body; a spring positioned to bias the inner tubular body in an extended direction with respect to the outer tubular body; a handle coupled to the proximal end of the outer tubular body; an actuation member movably coupled to the handle; and a disconnect mechanism for selectively coupling the actuation member to the inner tubular body and decoupling the actuation member from the inner tubular body, the disconnect mechanism is configured to automatically decouple the inner tubular body from the actuation member when the actuation member is moved in a first direction for a distance greater than a predetermined distance.

  • Patent number: 8553034
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention includes a data communication subsystem to receive a data stream, and a data processing subsystem responsive to the data communication subsystem to generate a visualization output based on a group of data vectors corresponding to a first portion of the data stream. The processing subsystem is further responsive to a change in rate of receipt of the data to modify the visualization output with one or more other data vectors corresponding to a second portion of the data stream as a function of eigenspace defined with the group of data vectors. The system further includes a display device responsive to the visualization output to provide a corresponding visualization.

  • Patent number: 4812990
    Abstract: A system and method for determining the optimal path for an aircraft to fly from a first position to a second position so that the aircraft heading at the second position is within preselected minimum and maximum heading limits. A two-dimensional reference grid is constructed so that the first position is in the center cell of the first rank of the grid and the second position is adjacent to the center cell of the last rank thereof. Dynamic programming techniques are used to determine the possible flight paths between the first and second positions and to select the path of minimum cost as the optimal path. The possible flight paths are constructed by identifying the possible connections between the last rank and the second postion and then between each pair of adjacent ranks, working backward from the last rank to the first position, which is located in the first rank. A possible connection is deemed to exist when the aircraft can fly from one point to a target point (e.g.
