  • Publication number: 20190216541
    Abstract: Skin treatment apparatus comprising an energy applicator structure configured to establish heating or ablation at a predetermined and controllable (i.e. selectable) depth below a surface of skin tissue with which it is in contact. The applicator structure may receive a cooling medium and microwave frequency electromagnetic energy, which provide a combined treatment effect that results in heating or ablation in a zone beneath the skin surface. The applicator may be a waveguide (e.g. waveguide horn antenna) with internal shielding configured to provide a substantially uniform heating effect. The applicator may include a thermal camera to monitor treatment.

  • Publication number: 20190167077
    Abstract: A movement transfer mechanism for a surgical scoping device, wherein a rotational proximal input force is transformed into a longitudinal force that is conveyed down the length of an instrument channel of the scoping device, where it is transformed again into an operational movement of a distal instrument. The operational movement can be rotational movement, but may be any movement that changes the orientation or configuration of the distal instrument. By conveying a linear force along the instrument channel rather than a twisting force, the problems of slipping and discontinuous operation of the distal instrument due to friction between the instrument and the instrument channel can be reduced or eliminated.

  • Publication number: 20190009890
    Abstract: A high-efficiency, stall-proof airfoil is an aircraft wing configuration whereby a motive force directly induces gaseous fluid flow across a lifting surface of the airfoil without requiring a movement of the wing through an air space. The airfoil is provided with means to control a pitch, a roll and a yaw motion and to control a position and stability of the aircraft. When not undergoing horizontal displacement, it provides highly efficient use of fuel resources, precluding the formation of drag and its incumbent power consumption. Air pressure at a bottom of the wing remains essentially ambient. Therefore, differential pressure between a lower surface of the wing and an upper surface of the wing maintains its maximum possible quantity. Virtually, all of the power consumed is utilized in a production of lift. Additionally, because lift is generated without regard to an angle-of-attack, forward speed, nor a configuration of a leading edge of the wing, the configuration is essentially stall proof.
