  • Patent number: 10794777
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for measuring static and dynamic pressures in harsh environments are disclosed. A pressure sensor according to one embodiment of the present invention may include a diaphragm constructed from materials designed to operate in harsh environments. A waveguide may be operably connected to the diaphragm, and an electromagnetic wave producing and receiving (e.g., sensing) device may be attached to the waveguide, opposite the diaphragm. A handle may be connected between the diaphragm and the waveguide to provide both structural support and electrical functionality for the sensor. A gap may be included between the handle and the diaphragm, allowing the diaphragm to move freely. An antenna and a ground plane may be formed on the diaphragm or the handle. Electromagnetic waves may be reflected off the antenna and detected to directly measure static and dynamic pressures applied to the diaphragm.

  • Publication number: 20200054875
    Abstract: Tissue-engineered nerve scaffolds, articles for up-selecting desired cell proliferation and down-selecting undesired cell proliferation, and methods of manufacturing the same are provided. The tissue-engineered nerve scaffold includes a hydrogel having a surface. The surface has a topography including a micropattern defined by a plurality of spaced features attached to or projected into the hydrogel. The micropattern facilitates attachment and alignment of neural cells and reduces attachment and alignment of cells associated with scar-tissue formation and encapsulation.

  • Publication number: 20080046012
    Abstract: A method system for modulating the energy expenditure and/or the expressed brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the brain of an individual is performed by a system that includes a control device that generates a stimulation pattern from a predetermined set of stimulation parameters, and that converts the stimulation pattern into a stimulation signal. A stimulation signal delivery mechanism, configured for implantation into a selected part of the brain, receives the stimulation signal from the control device and delivers the signal to the selected part of the brain. The stimulation signal may be an electrical signal delivered by a brain-implantable electrode, or a chemical signal in the form of a drug dosage regimen delivered by an implantable micropump under the control of the control device. Modulation of the energy expenditure and/or BDNF is achieved by the stimulation of the hypothalamus, either directly or indirectly, by the stimulation signal.
