  • Patent number: 9861532
    Abstract: A releasable medical drape, and systems and methods having the same, includes at least a liquid-impermeable, vapor-permeable layer, a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer, and a soft-gel layer having a plurality of apertures. The soft-gel layer is configured to be disposed adjacent to a tissue site. A portion of the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer extends through the plurality of apertures in the soft-gel layer to contact the tissue site. The soft-gel layer forms a good seal with the tissue site and the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer extending through the plurality of apertures forms a firm—but releasable—coupling with the tissue site.

  • Patent number: 9774650
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system for setting frame priority according to priority levels includes a video encoder to encode a first video frame of a live video stream yielding an encoded first video frame having a first priority level, and a processor to read, from a memory, an estimate of a time delay, the time delay being a time for data in the live video stream to be transferred from a first device to a second device, and determine if the estimate of the time delay exceeds a pre-defined delay, and wherein if the estimate of the time delay exceeds the pre-defined delay, the video encoder is operative to encode a second video frame with a higher priority level than the first priority level, the second video frame being a most recent video frame to be presented from the live video stream for encoding after the first video frame. Related apparatus and methods are also described.

  • Publication number: 20170204005
    Abstract: Described herein are various antimicrobial soda lime glass articles that have improved resistance to discoloration when exposed to harsh conditions, including manufacturing conditions. The improved antimicrobial glass articles described herein generally include a SLG substrate that has a thickness, t; a compressive stress layer of about 0.15*t or greater; and an antimicrobial agent-containing region having an antimicrobial agent and a thickness less than the thickness of the compressive stress layer. Roughly 2 to 20 microns of the primary surfaces of the glass substrate can be removed prior to development of the compressive stress and antimicrobial agent-containing region. In some aspects, prior-annealed and tempered, or prior-annealed, SLG is employed as the substrate. In some aspects, the substrate includes tin at one surface. The improved SLG substrates experience substantially no discoloration when exposed to harsh conditions. Methods of making and using the glass articles are also described.

  • Publication number: 20170196736
    Abstract: A reduced-pressure system for treating tissue, such as damaged subcutaneous tissue, includes a shaped dressing bolster for placing on the patient's epidermis and substantially sized to overlay the damaged subcutaneous tissue. The system further includes a sealing subsystem for providing a fluid seal over the shaped dressing bolster and a portion of the patient's epidermis, and a reduced-pressure subsystem for delivering a reduced pressure to the sealing subsystem. The reduced-pressure system may develop a force, which may include a vertical force that is realized at tissue site deeper than the epidermis or a closing force directed towards the incision. The shaped dressing bolster is shaped to evenly distribute the force. Other methods and systems are included.

    Abstract: Embodiments describe a motor. The motor includes a stator, and a rotor, which is arranged within the stator. An end part of at least one air-gap slot of the rotor has an offset with a predetermined distance and/or a predetermined angle relative to a main body part adjacent immediately to the end part. With the offset of a predetermined distance and/or a predetermined angle configured at the end part of at least one air-gap slot of the rotor, ripple torque of the motor is effectively lower down while complexity of the motor, stator or rotor will not be increased.
