  • Publication number: 20090069801
    Abstract: An electrosurgical system is disclosed. The electrosurgical system includes an electrosurgical instrument configured to generate a first and second data streams and a transmission circuit configured to convert the first and second data streams into a pulsed transmission signal. The first signal property of the transmission signal is representative of the first data stream and the second signal property of the transmission signal is representative of the second data stream. The transmission circuit is further configured to process the transmission signal to decode the first signal property into the first data stream and the second signal property into the second data stream.

  • Patent number: 6974431
    Abstract: An improved apparatus and method for applying a total contact cast to a patient utilizes a kit of pre-packaged materials containing all of the items necessary. A uniquely designed padding strip pads the bony prominence on either side of the ankle, the top metatarsal area, and the crest of the shinbone in one unitary piece. Special cuts in the padding strip allow it to conform tightly to the bend between the foot and lower leg. The special cuts also allow the connected circular or elliptical flaps to also conform easily to the bony prominence of the ankle. Positioning the padding strip is simpler, easier, faster, and provides greater structural integrity to the overall cast. The unitary design helps prevent the padding strip from shifting when the cast is complete. An enlarged base portion of the walking heel eliminates the need for a separate wood platform for support.

  • Publication number: 20040111048
    Abstract: The present invention provides a medical device and treatment method for chronic venous insufficiency and related medical conditions. The device is an inflatable stocking which, when inflated, applies pressure to the foot and lower leg of a patient. The device has several sections that are inflatable to different pressures so that gradient pressure may be applied. The sections are vertically disposed so that greatest pressure is applied to the foot and lower portion of the lower leg, somewhat less pressure is applied to the middle portion of the lower leg, and the least pressure is applied to the upper section of the lower leg. The device surrounds the entire treatment area so that the treated area will not swell.

  • Publication number: 20040031169
    Abstract: A shoe for treating and preventing chronic foot wounds such as ulcerations in diabetes patients. A malleable shoe upper is attached to a sole and receives a custom-fitted orthosis produced by imprinting the patient's plantar aspect into heat-deformable foam or a hardening silicone. A heel of the shoe includes an internal spring to further dampen reactive forces.

  • Patent number: 6682497
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and an apparatus for treating patients having ulcerations of the lower foot, including patients suffering from diabetic neuropathy. The brace generally includes a pair of rigid shells, a fastening system for joining the shells together to form a unified brace and a combination of bladders which engage the patient's leg and ankle to off-weight the plantar surface, prevent plantar flexing and minimize shearing forces to the plantar surface. The volume of the bladders may be adjusted by the addition or removal of a filler in order to maintain a uniform pressure between the bladders and the patient's leg. The filler contained in the bladders preferably does not undergo significant expansion or contraction in response to temperature or altitude changes.

  • Publication number: 20030195448
    Abstract: A wound dressing having exothermic materials that undergo a chemical reaction to generate heat to produce a desired temperature to promote healing at a wound site, and a phase-change material having a phase-change temperature to absorb heat and maintain the wound dressing at said desired temperature.
