  • Publication number: 20220347017
    Abstract: An apparatus for filling a wound can include an array of at least four truncated ellipsoids interconnected to define at least one fluid path through, for example perpendicular to, the array. The longest principal axis of each ellipsoid may be perpendicular to the array. Each truncated ellipsoid may be a spheroid and/or may include an approximately elliptical contact surface at each contact surface between two interconnected ellipsoids. Each fluid pathway may have four continuously-curved concave sides and may have a parallelogram-shaped cross-section with continuously-curved concave edges. A dressing may include the apparatus, a dressing layer coupled to the apparatus, a backing layer disposed over a surface of the dressing layer opposite the apparatus, and an attachment device disposed on at least a margin of the backing layer. Methods of treating various tissue sites using the apparatus or dressing with negative-pressure therapy are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11418615
    Abstract: A proxy device receives a resource request from a requestor via a client device. The resource request is associated with a hosted resource, and the hosted resource is associated with a version-control tag. The proxy device determines, based on the version-control tag, information indicating a current state of the hosted resource. The proxy device obtains user management information associated with the requestor, and conditionally dispatches a processed resource request from the proxy device to a resource host based, at least in part, on the current state of the hosted resource and the user management information.

  • Patent number: 11102321
    Abstract: A device acting as a proxy for an asset host receives a message from a requesting device. The message includes an access request specifying an asset hosted by the asset host. The message includes embedded pipeline language parameters specifying desired asset characteristics of the hosted asset. The proxy routes the access request to the asset host. The asset received in response to the request has characteristics. The proxy compares the asset characteristics of the asset to the desired asset characteristics specified by the embedded pipeline language parameters. In response to a result of the comparison indicating that the asset's characteristics do not match the first desired asset characteristics specified by the embedded pipeline language parameters, the proxy transmits a transformed asset back to the requesting device.

  • Patent number: 10855790
    Abstract: A system includes a proxy device, a requestor device that communicates with the proxy via a first communications link, and an asset host that communicates with the proxy via a second communications link. The proxy receives receive an access request from a user of the requestor device via the first communication link. The access request is associated with a requested asset hosted by the asset host, and includes pipeline language parameters. Routing information associated with the asset host is determined, and the access request is routed to the asset host in response to verifying that the user is authorized to access the requested asset. The proxy device obtains the requested asset from the asset host, transforms the requested asset based on the pipeline language parameters, and transmits the transformed asset to the requestor device.

  • Patent number: 10484496
    Abstract: A system includes a proxy device, a requestor device that communicates with the proxy via a first communications link, and an asset host that communicates with the proxy via a second communications link. The proxy receives an access request from a user of the requestor device via the first communication link. The access request includes a request to access a resource hosted by the asset host. The proxy obtains access authorization information associated with the user, and determines whether the user is authorized to access the resource based on the access authorization information. The proxy determines routing information associated with the asset host, and conditionally routes the access request to the asset host via the second communications link based, at least in part, on the access authorization information. The; asset host provides the resource to the requestor device via a third communications link that bypasses the proxy device.

  • Patent number: 10129354
    Abstract: When a user sends a request to access an asset or resource, for example a program code file or a media file, the access request can be processed by a proxy device. The proxy can use directory information obtained from a directory, for example a company-wide Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory, to determine whether or not the request is from an authorized network user listed in the directory. The proxy can use management information obtained from another database to determine roles, subordinate assignment information, and access authorization information associated with the requesting user. The proxy can conditionally route the request to a resource host based on the directory information and the management information. The proxy can also transform a resource returned in response to the request by using pipeline language parameters included in a URL associated with the access request.

  • Patent number: 5459982
    Abstract: An apparatus for compressing bulky materials, like microfibers having a bulk density of less than about 0.2 PCF, to a much higher density, e.g. about 10.8 PCF, and packaging the compressed mass without damaging the material. The apparatus comprises a hopper having a pivoting wall wherein one edge of the pivoting wall is tapered and cooperates with a curved extension of one wall of an adjoining compression chamber to prevent the material from being pinched or scarffed which would damage the material. The compression chamber is long enough that when the compression means is withdrawn to accept another charge (each package requires a plurality of charging and compressing cycles) the compressed material cannot expand into the opening the compression chamber leading to the hopper. Finally, one end portion of a wall of the compression chamber has a movable retaining wall that also forms a portion of a wall of an adjoining packaging chamber.

  • Patent number: 5455991
    Abstract: Disclosed are an improved apparatus for collecting fine fibers, such as glass fibers, having a mean diameter of less than two microns from a gaseous stream, a method of collecting fine fibers using the apparatus and the novel new product produced by this method. The improvement lies mainly in the way in which the collection drum is supported and sealed which allows the collection to take place at relatively high partial vacuums. The fiber is also consolidated in the gaseous stream by passing it through a duct having at least one approximately ninety degree turn therein.
