  • Patent number: 10357387
    Abstract: Medical devices and method for making and using the same are disclosed. An example medical device may include implantable medical device for use along the biliary and/or pancreatic tract. The implantable medical device may include a tubular member having a first end configured to be disposed within the duodenum of a patient and a second end configured to be disposed adjacent to a pancreatic duct and/or bile duct. The tubular member may have a body including one or more wire filaments that are woven together. The tubular member may also have an outer surface with a longitudinal channel formed therein.

  • Patent number: 10349183
    Abstract: An electrostatic transducer (100) comprises an electrically conductive first member (102) having an array of through apertures (112) and one or more further members (104, 106). The one or more further members (104, 106) include a flexible electrically conductive second member (106) arranged in use to be displaced from an equilibrium position towards the first member (102) by an electrostatic force in response to an electrical potential applied to one or both of the first member (102) and the second member (106). At least one (104) of the one or more further members is resiliently deformable and is arranged in use to exert a resilient biasing force biasing said second member (106) back towards said equilibrium position when displaced therefrom by said electrical potential.

  • Publication number: 20190145435
    Abstract: A multi-segment reinforced actuator includes (a) a soft actuator body that defines a chamber and (b) a plurality of distinct reinforcement structures on or in respective segments of the soft actuator body. First and second reinforcement structures are respectively configured to produce a first and second actuation motions, respectively, in first and second segments of the soft actuator body when fluid flows into or out of the chamber. The actuation motions are selected bending, extending, expansion, contraction, twisting, and combinations thereof; and the first actuation motion differs from the second actuation motion. The actuator can be used, e.g., to facilitate bending of the thumb with corresponding bending, extending, expansion, contraction, and twisting actuation motions.

  • Patent number: 10286174
    Abstract: An expiratory limb for a breathing circuit includes an enclosing wall defining a flexible singular expiratory flow passage between an inlet and an outlet and bounding the flexible singular expiratory flow passage and ambient air. The expiratory limb includes one or more regions of the enclosing wall that made from a material that allows passage of water vapor without allowing passage of liquid water, thereby forming a water vapor flow path from the flexible singular expiratory flow passage to the ambient air through the material. The expiratory limb is configured to allow diffusion of water vapor along the flexible singular expiratory flow passage and dry the flow of expiratory gases between the inlet and the outlet.

  • Publication number: 20190125566
    Abstract: Medical devices and methods for making and using medical devices are disclosed. An example medical device may include a catheter shaft. The catheter shaft may include an inner member having a distal region and a deployment sheath disposed about the inner member. A stent may be disposed between along the distal region of the inner member. A handle may be coupled to the catheter shaft. An actuation mechanism may be coupled to the handle for proximally retracting the deployment sheath. The actuation mechanism may be designed to shift relative to the handle from a pre-deployment position, along an early deployment region, and along a full deployment region. The medical device may also include a force reduction member for applying a force to the actuation mechanism while the actuation mechanism is disposed along the early deployment region.

  • Publication number: 20190026986
    Abstract: A gaming machine including a display. The display displays a first prize and a second prize. The first prize has a first prize threshold and the second prize has a second prize threshold. The display also displays an overflow prize, while the game controller contributes to the first prize at least a portion of the credit balance with respect to a wagering activity, and causes the display to display an increment of the overflow prize in response to the first prize having reached the first threshold. A payout mechanism configured to, in response to determining the first prize and the second prize are not to be awarded, cause a payout associated with the incremented overflow prize.

  • Patent number: 10130497
    Abstract: A stent includes a tubular support structure extending from a distal end to a proximal end, the tubular support structure including an inner surface and an outer surface. A retractable anchor system is disposed relative to the tubular support structure and includes a frame member and a plurality of retractable anchors secured to the frame member. The plurality of retractable anchors are biased to a deployed configuration in which the plurality of retractable anchors extend radially outward from the outer surface of the tubular support structure but are radially inwardly compressible into a delivery configuration.
