  • Publication number: 20210330928
    Abstract: Caloric stimulation and pressure stimulation can be applied to the ear for treatment of neurological disorders, such as migraine, pain, and headache. Heat can be applied first to increase the sensitivity of the mechanoreceptors in the ear. The pressure can be applied after heating to produce a stronger neurological response than would occur without the heating. In some cases, cooling can be used. Valves can be used to direct fluid flow to a right ear, a left ear, or both. Valves can be used to transition the system between an irrigation or caloric mode and a pressure mode. Green eyewear can be used for therapeutic relief.

  • Publication number: 20200121544
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media for treating medical conditions such as neurological disorders. A user device can be used to communicate with a user and can be used to control a treatment device. The treatment device can be an ear pressure treatment device. The system can execute treatment parameter profiles, and selection of the treatment parameter profiles can depend, at least in part, on feedback provided by the user, such as via the user device. One, two, or more nerves associated with target anatomical locations (e.g., one or both ears) can be stimulated. Some embodiments involve combination therapy including stimulating one or more nerves associated with at least one ear with a first stimulus modality, and a second stimulus modality that is the same as, or different from the first stimulus modality.

  • Patent number: 5944748
    Abstract: A device for applying light in photodynamic therapy is arranged to apply light in a pattern corresponding to the configuration of the lesion to be treated. The device may be customized in response to an image of the patient acquired before treatment. Alternatively, the device may include sensors for detecting a characteristic of tissue overlying each region of the device so that the device either emits light or does not emit light in each region depending upon the characteristics of the overlying tissue.

  • Patent number: 4062189
    Abstract: In an ocean thermal energy conversion system utilizing solar energy stored as heat in tropical waters to generate electricity, the evaporating and condensing functions of the heat exchangers are interchanged in order to prevent the accumulation of micro-organisms on their surfaces. The surfaces of the heat exchangers are also mechanically brushed or scraped so as to remove any thin films of microbial slime. In order to remove additional micro-organisms from the surfaces of the heat exchangers, the flow of hot and cold sea water through each of the heat exchangers is interchanged preferably on a daily basis. Thus, micro-organisms from the warm surface waters that attach themselves to one heat exchanger surface will be destroyed by the cold water that flows through that heat exchanger on the next day. On the other hand, the organisms that live in the cold water at great depths cannot survive the next day's warm water environment which is caused by alternating the flow to the two heat exchangers.

  • Patent number: 4055145
    Abstract: An integrated system for converting ocean thermal energy to electrical power for use in synthesis of anhydrous ammonia and a mariculture operation for raising a selected species of marine fauna. The mariculture operation is carried out in a lagoon located adjacent to a deep ocean region where the surface water temperature is at least 21.degree. C and the deep nutrient-rich water temperature is no more than about 10.degree. C. A separate working fluid, such as ammonia, operates in a Rankine cycle between the warm and cold seawater temperatures. The deep ocean water is used to condense the working fluid and is then mixed with warm surface water that has been used to evaporate the same working fluid in a closed power cycle. The resulting mixture is directed to the lagoon, where the nutrient-rich component contributes to the growth rate of a selected mariculture species.
