  • Patent number: 10961967
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to fuel injectors for internal combustion engines (e.g. engines with reciprocating pistons and with compression-ignition or spark-ignition, Wankel engines, turbines, jets, rockets, and the like) and more particularly to improved nozzle configurations for use as part of such fuel injectors. Other embodiments are directed to enabling fabrication technology that can provide for formation of nozzles with complex configurations and particularly for technologies that form structures via multiple layers of selectively deposited material or in combination with fabrication from a plurality of layers where critical layers are planarized before attaching additional layers thereto or forming additional layers thereon. Other embodiments are directed to methods and apparatus for integrating such nozzles with injector bodies.

  • Publication number: 20200269013
    Abstract: A tubular sheath for enclosing an expandable balloon attached to the distal portion of a catheter encloses and protects the expandable balloon. The tubular sheath is configured to be slidable and removable from the catheter. The tubular sheath may include a longitudinal splitting element that is removable as a result of a force applied to the longitudinal splitting element. The longitudinal splitting element is configured to split the wall of the tubular sheath in response to the force. Alternatively, the tubular sheath may include a gripping portion that has relatively poor cohesive strength to adjacent portions of the tubular sheath. The tubular sheath is configured to be removable in response to a force applied to the gripping portion.

  • Patent number: 8660644
    Abstract: A method of operating a neurostimulation device comprises outputting a pulsed electrical waveform from the neurostimulation device between a plurality of electrodes while at least one of the electrodes has a first polarity, thereby stimulating neural tissue adjacent the electrode(s), allowing the neural tissue to undergo neurological accommodation in response to the electrical energy output between the electrodes, switching the electrode(s) from the first polarity to a second polarity, outputting the pulsed electrical waveform from the neurostimulation device between the electrodes while the electrode(s) has the second polarity, thereby hyperpolarizing the neural tissue to reverse the neurological accommodation, switching the electrode(s) from the second polarity to the first polarity, and outputting the pulsed electrical waveform from the neurostimulation device between the electrodes while the electrode(s) has the first polarity, thereby stimulating the previously hyperpolarized neural tissue.

  • Publication number: 20060157971
    Abstract: A first fluid connector is provided for selective interconnection to and fluid transfer with a second fluid connector. The first connector comprises a fluid passageway, an internal member and an outer collar supportably disposed about the internal member for selective advancement and retraction relative thereto. At least a portion of the fluid passageway may extend through the internal member. The outer collar may be selectively retracted to facilitate cleaning of the internal member. In some embodiments, the outer collar and internal member may be disposed so that a distal portion of the internal member is substantially flush with or a distal portion of internal member projects beyond a distal end of the outer collar when the outer collar is in a retracted position relative thereto. To facilitate cleaning, a distal end or distal portion of the internal member may be substantially closed when the first and second connectors are disconnected.
