  • Patent number: 10530188
    Abstract: A remote device in accordance with the present invention includes an adaptive power receiver that receives wireless power from the wireless power supply by induction. The adaptive power receiver may be switched among two or more modes of operation, including, for example, a high-Q mode and a low-Q mode. By controlling the switching between modes, the amount of energy received by the adaptive receiver may be controlled. This control is a form of adaptive resonance control or Q control.

  • Publication number: 20190357934
    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 a body extending along an axis and a distal cap positioned distally of the body and coupled to a shaft extending along the axis. The body and the distal cap may be movable relative to each other. An anchoring mechanism may be capable of engaging the body and the distal cap proximate a selected tissue for resection in the body lumen. A tissue capture device may be deployable from the tissue resection device such that a selected tissue for resection is securable by the tissue capture device. The tissue resection device may further include a tissue resecting device for resecting the selected tissue for resection.

  • Publication number: 20190357933
    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 elongate body having a cavity at a distal end and a tissue retractor extendable distally from the distal end of the elongate body. The tissue retractor may include an expansion mechanism. The expansion mechanism may include a plurality of arms each having a first end coupled around a distal cap and expandable radially outward from the distal cap such that an anchoring mechanism on a second end of the arms is engageable with selected tissue for resection of the body lumen. The tissue resection device may further include a tissue resecting device.

  • Patent number: 10427099
    Abstract: A mixing system for an exhaust system includes a first mixing device having a plurality of first auger blades and an inlet having a first cross-sectional area. A second mixing device is separate and downstream from the first mixing device and includes a second auger blade. The second mixing device includes an inlet having a second cross-sectional area greater than the first cross-sectional area. A flow path longitudinal centerline of the first mixing device extends at an angle to a flow path longitudinal centerline of the second mixing device. A flow path longitudinal centerline of the first mixing device intersects the second auger blade. The first mixing device is disposed within a first portion of an exhaust pipe and the second mixing device is disposed in a second portion of the exhaust pipe. The second portion has a larger cross-sectional area than the first portion.

  • Publication number: 20190279373
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable tracking a physical object with a holographic projection, and, more specifically, enhancing a view of an object by tracking the object with a 3-D holographic projection. A holographic object tracking projection system receives, from a sensor, a feed of an area containing a physical object and locates a position of the physical object in the area based on the feed. The system creates a visible holographic object to mark the physical object, and projects the holographic object, using a holographic projector, at the position of the physical object. The holographic object can be a shape that surrounds the physical object in order to increase a visibility of the physical object. The physical object may move, and, as the physical object moves, the holographic object tracking projection system tracks this movement and adjusts the holographic object to match the movement of the physical object.

  • Publication number: 20100104448
    Abstract: A flow restrictive edge profile applied to a fluid propelled/propelling implement and for creating increased driving force as a blade interacts with a fluid medium. An arcuate blade face pattern, including such as a “horseshoe” or modified “U” shape profile, is applied to one or two opposite faces of an oar design, with a deepened and inner extending connecting (arcuate) edge establishing a maximum of resistance (and a corresponding minimization of fluid losses) when traveling through the fluid medium. This in turn maximizes the amount of driving efficiency (e.g. thrust) to the article, such as during it being physically translated through a water medium or acted upon by a wind stream medium. The flow restrictive edge profile also contemplates application into one more blades associated with such as a rotating propeller or a driven windmill.

  • Patent number: 6635043
    Abstract: A cap assembly for a container has a hollow housing with an upper end that receives a fluid transfer device and a lower end that engages a stopper on the container. The housing has an internal cavity open at the upper and lower ends and a radially outwardly extending portion at the lower end. A penetrator is received in the internal cavity. The penetrator has a pointed distal end opposite the stopper and an upper end constructed to be engaged by a fluid transfer device. A cap is constructed the hollow housing. The cap has a closed upper end, an open lower end, a radially outwardly extending portion at the open end, and a circumferential line of weakness connecting the upper and lower ends. A ferrule is over the radially outwardly extending portion of the hollow housing and the radially outwardly extending portion of the cap.
