  • Patent number: 10080611
    Abstract: A skin treatment device comprising a light source providing a light beam for optically treating skin, a wheel with a wheel surface for reflecting the light beam towards the skin, driving means for rotating the wheel and changing an angular position of the wheel, where different angular positions of the wheel correspond to different directions of reflection for the light beam, an angular position detector for detecting the angular position of the wheel, storage means for storing predefined skin-treatment patterns, a relation between the different angular positions of the wheel; and different reflection directions of the light beam, a control circuit coupled to the light source. The light source being controlled in dependence on the detected angular position such that, for each revolution of the wheel, the light beam is controlled to only illuminate the wheel surface in selected angular positions of the wheel to realize a predefined skin-treatment pattern.

  • Patent number: 9968772
    Abstract: There is provided an adaptor for forming an electrical connection between a medical device having a first type of connector and an electrode having a second type of connector. The adaptor has a first connecting part shaped to cooperate with a corresponding connecting part on one of the medical device and the electrode so as to form a mechanical and electrical connection therebetween. The adaptor further has a second connecting part having a portion of magnetic or ferromagnetic material arranged to be magnetically attracted to a corresponding magnet or portion of ferromagnetic material included in a magnetic connector part on the other of the medical device and the electrode, so as to form a magnetic and electrical connection therebetween. The first connecting part is electrically connected to the second connecting part.

  • Publication number: 20160121098
    Abstract: There is provided an adaptor (40) for forming an electrical connection between a medical device having a first type of connector and an electrode having a second type of connector. The adaptor comprises a first connecting part (42) shaped to cooperate with a corresponding connecting part on one of the medical device and the electrode so as to form a mechanical and electrical connection therebetween. The adaptor (40) further comprises a second connecting part (44) comprising a portion of magnetic or ferromagnetic material (46) arranged to be magnetically attracted to a corresponding magnet or portion of ferromagnetic material comprised in a magnetic connector part on the other of the medical device and the electrode, so as to form a magnetic and electrical convection therebetween. The first connecting part (42) is electrically connected to the second connecting part (44).
