  • Publication number: 20190343528
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure relate to devices, systems, and methods for tissue resection in a body lumen of a patient, and may include an endoscope and a backstop delivery device extendable through the endoscope. The backstop delivery device may deliver a backstop to a location of selected tissue for resection. A backstop may include a covering being deployable in a patient. The covering may have one or more anchoring mechanisms disposed on an edge of the covering. A tissue resecting device may be extendable through the endoscope for resecting the selected tissue for resection. The covering may be deployable to an outer surface of the body lumen, such that the anchoring mechanism may secure the covering to the outer surface of the body lumen and the covering may expand to cover the selected tissue for resection.

  • Patent number: 7026539
    Abstract: This invention provides a system for customizing musical instrument signal processing enabling users to produce different tonal characteristics in created musical pieces. In order to create such tonal characteristics, a new mathematical model of tonal characteristics may be digitally created based on two or more initial mathematical models of tonal characteristics. After simulating a first and second initial mathematical models of tonal characteristics, the new mathematical model is created by interpolating one or more coefficients of the first and second initial mathematical models. The new mathematical model may also adjust a control parameter where the control parameter may exist between two values. When the control parameter is the first value, the new mathematical model is the first initial mathematical model. When the control parameter is the second value, the new mathematical model may be the second initial mathematical model.

  • Patent number: 6817544
    Abstract: A device for preventing the rotation of a power drill attachment relative to a power drill is provided and is described in combination with a liquid sprayer. The device having a container (10) with a supply tube (12) extending downward into the container (10) and upward into a pump inlet (14) which is open to a pump (16.) The pump (16) has on the rearward side a pump seal (18) and a pump drive (20) and on the forward side a pump outlet (22) and nozzle (24). The pump has a rod (26) affixed to it by means of a rod attachment (28). The rod (26) extends rearward and includes an ergonomic rod pillow (30). Also included is a power drill (36) including a power drill trigger (32) and a power drill chuck (34). When energized the power drill (36) imparts rotational energy to the pump (16). Rotation of the pump (16) relative to the power drill (36) is prevented by the communication of the rod (26) the rod attachment (28) and the housing of the power drill (36).

  • Publication number: 20030201340
    Abstract: An improved liquid sprayer having a container (12) with a handle (14). A supply tube (16) extends into the container (12) and upward through a container cap (18) and a container cap attachment (20) and into a pump inlet (22) which is open to a pump (24). Adjacent to the front of pump (24) is a pump outlet (26) and a nozzle (27). Adjacent to the rear of pump (24) is a pump drive (32) which removably communicates with a pump drive socket (34) affixed to a conventional rechargeable drill (36). The drill sprayer (10) can be removably attached to the container (12) which then is refilled and reused. Alternately, the drill sprayer (10) can be permanently affixed to the container (12) and therefore disposable.
