  • Patent number: 10588536
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides methods for identifying non-penetrating brain injury in a subject, as well as methods for classifying a subject that received a hit to the body that transmitted an impulsive force to the brain as either having a non-penetrating brain injury or not, by analyzing one or more components of frequency-following response (FFR) following administration of an acoustic stimulus to the subject. In addition, the present disclosure provides methods for assessing a subject's recovery from a non-penetrating brain injury. Also disclosed herein are processes and systems for automatically generating acoustic stimuli and processing brain response data to identify non-penetrating brain injuries in subjects.

  • Patent number: 10473400
    Abstract: There is provided a dispersion apparatus for use with a solid fuel burner. The dispersion apparatus comprises a passage through which particulate material may flow toward an outlet region for dispersal therefrom, the flow being at least in part rotational about the longitudinal axis of the passage. The dispersion apparatus also comprises a downstream guide means arranged within the passage at or near the outlet region, the downstream guide means configured to at least reduce the rotational motion so that the flow progresses toward the outlet region in a substantially uniform manner in a direction aligned with a longitudinal axis of the passage.

  • Publication number: 20190167342
    Abstract: An electrosurgical forceps instrument in which an energy conveying structure for efficiently transferring electromagnetic energy (e.g. microwave energy and/or radiofrequency energy) from a coaxial cable to electrodes on the forceps jaws is incorporated into a compact jaw opening structure. The jaw opening structure may be dimensioned to be suitable for insertion down the instrument channel of a endoscope or other scoping device. Alternatively, the device may be configured as a laparoscopic device or be used in open procedures. The instrument may be used as a tool to perform new minimally invasive surgical techniques such as Natural Orifice Transluminal Endosurgery (NOTES) or the like.

  • Publication number: 20180092735
    Abstract: A tissue fixation device for securing soft tissue to bone includes an expandable outer sheath, and an inner screw in threaded cooperation with the sheath. The expandable sheath comprises opposing walls in hinged engagement. When the screw is inserted into in the sheath, the walls pivot outwardly about a distal hinge to compress a tissue graft against the bone hole, and to lock the device therein. An optional cortical button is secured across the bone hole entrance, and tethered to the fixation device to bolster fixation.

  • Patent number: 9590768
    Abstract: A method, performed in a receiver device, for decoding transmissions of a set of coded information bits from a transmitter. The method includes deriving received symbols from first received data and second received data. The received symbols are converted to sets of soft coded bit estimates. The sets of soft coded bit estimates are combined to form a combined set of soft coded bit estimates. The combined set of soft coded bit estimates are decoded to form a set of soft information bit estimates. The set of soft information bit estimates are converted to form a set of binary bits. A determination is made whether the set of binary bits has been correctly or incorrectly decoded. Interference cancellation is performed on the received data, and the method is repeated until either the set of binary bits has been correctly decoded or a predefined maximum number of iterations is reached.
