  • Publication number: 20070167819
    Abstract: A method for determining material properties of internal tissues of a body, the method comprising the steps of: a. providing force measuring device, b. providing an imaging means for acquiring images of deformation or displacement of tissues inside a body cavity; c. providing a calculation means for quantifying displacement of internal tissues; d. inserting at least a portion of said probe head into the body cavity; e. applying force with said probe head against an internal body tissue; f. measuring said force applied to said internal body tissue; g. acquiring images of displacement of said internal body tissue; h. calculating said displacement of said internal body tissue; and i. calculating material properties from said measured force and said calculated displacement.

  • Publication number: 20070167818
    Abstract: A force measurement device and system, the device being for insertion into an internal body cavity of a human. The probe comprises (a) a probe head having a dimension suitable for insertion into the body cavity; (b) a load cell operatively connected to the probe head such that forces on the probe head are transmitted to the load cell; and (c) a relatively rigid portion joined to the probe head by a relatively flexible portion such that the probe head is flexibly joined to the relatively rigid portion and can move laterally with respect to a longitudinal center line of the relatively rigid portion.

  • Publication number: 20070015994
    Abstract: A device and method for determining location dependent biomechanical properties of internal tissues is disclosed. The device comprises an expandable probe which is insertable into an orifice of a body and into a body; a flexible conduit to conduct fluid between a fluid supply and said expandable probe; means for conducting fluid between said fluid supply and said expandable probe, said means capable of changing the volume of said expandable probe; a pressure transducer for measuring fluid pressure of said expandable probe; imaging means for detecting strain of internal tissues contacted by said expandable probe; and calculating means for determining biomechanical properties of said internal tissues.

  • Publication number: 20070016391
    Abstract: A computational model of the human vaginal environment is disclosed. The model comprises finite element analysis software, segmented tissue regions, at least one defined material parameter for each of said segmented tissue regions, and at least one boundary condition for each of said segmented tissue regions. At least one of the boundary conditions is subject to physiological condition changes and the model comprises computing means for manipulating the material parameters and the boundary conditions with the finite element analysis software.

  • Publication number: 20020196123
    Abstract: Disclosed are portable locking systems that primarily provide for the controlled entrance into lockable structures such as home cabinets. The portable locking systems comprise a portable transmitter and a portable receiver wherein the portable receiver preferably has a locking mechanism connected to the receiver. The portable transmitter is hand-held or removable from an individual to another individual whereas the portable receiver is removable from a lockable structure such as a home cabinet for reattachment to another cabinet or other lockable structure, thus resulting in a portable locking system that can be used temporarily or permanently at home or transported to another location for use.

  • Publication number: 20020188198
    Abstract: A wearable breast tissue examination device including a support element adapted to fit over at least a portion of a breast of the wearer. The support element has a shell, a measurement apparatus including at least two mutually opposed ultrasound transducer arrays disposed on at least a portion of the inner surface of the shell and at least one bladder element disposed in the shell that is configured to orient the wearer's breast properly for examination. The wearable device may also include means for operatively connecting the two mutually opposed transducer arrays to a transducer driver, and means for holding the support element on the wearer during use.
