  • Publication number: 20220208002
    Abstract: A safety system to prevent a wrong-way vehicle from entering a roadway by driving onto an exit ramp in the wrong direction. A detection system monitors and detects the wrong-way vehicle as soon as it enters the exit ramp in the wrong direction. Upon detecting a wrong-way vehicle, the roadway safety system remotely sends a signal to turn off the motor of the wrong-way vehicle. The system may also record the vehicle's identification and communicate it to a command center to determine the mobile phone number of the owner/driver and call the driver to alert them that they are driving the wrong-way. Alternatively, a series of one or more penetrable and/or impenetrable barriers could be deployed to stop the wrong-way vehicle. The safety system may further include a communications system to communicate to a central office to initiate other alarms and control traffic on the roadway in response to detecting a wrong-way vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10820897
    Abstract: Surgical devices and methods of surgical repairs using the devices are disclosed. The device and methods aid in surgical repairs by allowing for quick and reproducible repairs to be made. A tensionable knotless fixation device is provided with a tensioning construct (formed of a tensioning strand, a tensionable, adjustable, knotless, self-cinching loop, and a splice adjacent the loop) pre-loaded onto a fixation device. A flexible material (for example, suture or suture tape) may be attached to a fixation device. A flexible material may be threaded through an eyelet of a fixation device.

  • Patent number: 10729549
    Abstract: Techniques, mixtures, mixing and delivery kits, and improved delivery instruments for implantation of micronized allograft tissue over a microfractured defect. Allograft cartilage tissue is delivered over a cartilage defect that has been debrided and microfractured, without the need for a periosteal covering or separate type of patch sewn over the top. The allograft tissue may be any micronized cartilage particulates obtained by various methods, for example, cartilage delivered in its native form, dehydrated via lyophilization, “freeze-dried,” dehydrated via desiccation, or dehydrated by any other method.

  • Patent number: 10695073
    Abstract: A rotary, cutting medical device configured to be used during surgeries, such as ACL reconstruction, to drill holes and retrograde sockets is disclosed. The device may include a blade at a distal end that is movable between a first position aligned with a longitudinal axis of the device and a second position nonparallel to the longitudinal axis used to create retrograde sockets. The device may include a blade position control system connecting the blade to distal ends of both the outer tube and inner shaft and configured to control movement of the blade between first and second positions for drilling a hole and then creating a retrograde socket. The device may include a position retention system configured to retain the blade in the second position while allowing the inner shaft and blade to rotate to cut the socket.

  • Patent number: 10661119
    Abstract: A treadmill safety control system, method, and apparatus are described for operating an exercise treadmill by enabling a treadmill motor to start moving the treadmill belt after an initial height of the user on the treadmill belt is measured, and then continually measuring a current height of the user on the treadmill belt for evaluation against the initial height so that a first treadmill motor control signal is generated to stop the treadmill motor from moving the treadmill belt when the current height is lower than the initial height by a minimum height threshold.

  • Publication number: 20180103963
    Abstract: A rotary medical device configured to be used to prepare a surgical site within a patient for affixing at least one fixation device via a rotary abrading element and a rotary drill bit, both of which are attachable to the same handpiece, is disclosed. By configuring the rotary medical device to operate both a rotary abrading element and a rotary drill bit, the need for a separate, single use drill and the time and human resources needed to disinfect and process the drill is eliminated, thereby saving time and cost. In at least one embodiment, the rotary medical device may include a first detachable system including a first abrading element attached to a first detachable hub, which is attachable to the handpiece, and a second detachable system including a first drill bit attached to a second detachable hub, which is also attachable to the handpiece.

  • Publication number: 20170281327
    Abstract: A sleeve for soft tissue repair includes a cylindrical tube formed of at least one biocompatible material, and a suture tethered to one end of the cylindrical tube. The cylindrical tube is configured to be fitted over a soft tissue. The cylindrical tube is configured to reversibly and repeatedly deform from a relaxed state to a stretched state in which the cylindrical tube contracts in a radial direction and expands in a longitudinal direction to secure the soft tissue within the cylindrical tube.
