  • Patent number: 11193570
    Abstract: The variable speed transmission uses multiple fluid couplings to provide a sturdy, durable variable output ratio transmission by using hydraulic fluid to vary the output. Each fluid coupling has an independent output shaft driven by the respective fluid coupling turbine. Output shafts drive alternate gears (i.e., first and third at a first fluid coupling and second and fourth at a second fluid coupling). This configuration alternates gear shifts between the fluid couplings allowing the next gear up or down to be engaged before disengaging the current gear, for uninterrupted gear changes in both up and down shifting. A fifth gear would be driven by a gear connected to the fluid coupling input shafts. Gears could be engaged with hydraulic clutches or syncromesh gears. This combined with variable slip fluid couplings allows for better torque and control.

  • Publication number: 20210345958
    Abstract: A system for treating atrial fibrillation includes a memory configured to store a baseline measurement of an atrial fibrillation characteristic of a patient and a post administration measurement of the atrial fibrillation characteristic of the patient. The post administration measurement is obtained subsequent to administration of a reactive oxygens species (ROS) scavenger to the patient. The system also includes a processor operatively coupled to the memory and configured to determine a change between the baseline measurement and the post administration measurement of the atrial fibrillation characteristic. The processor is further configured to identify, based on the determined change, one or more hot spots of atrial fibrillation, where the one or more hot spots comprise target areas for treatment of the atrial fibrillation.
