  • Publication number: 20240033073
    Abstract: An implantable device for supporting an artificial intraocular lens in an eye having an anterior segment of a capsular bag, an iris, and a sclera. The device includes a posterior platform having an anterior-facing surface and an inner wall defining, at least in part, a central aperture. When the device is implanted in the eye, light passes through the intraocular lens and the central aperture of the posterior platform towards the retina. The device includes at least one awning positioned over the anterior-facing surface of the posterior platform forming at least one recess anterior to the posterior platform. The device is configured to be deployed in the eye posterior of the iris so that no portion of the device rests in contact with the sclera after implantation. Related tools, systems, and methods are provided.

  • Publication number: 20230240835
    Abstract: An accommodating intraocular lens device for treatment of an eye having a lens body; internal support; stabilization system; and force translation arm. The lens body includes an accommodating membrane, an annular element, a static element, and a fixed volume of optical fluid filling a sealed chamber of the lens body. The annular element coupled to the perimeter of the accommodating membrane has a shape deformation membrane configured to undergo displacement relative to the perimeter region. The sealed chamber is formed by inner surfaces of the accommodating membrane, shape deformation membrane, and static element. The force translation arm has a first end operatively coupled to the shape deformation membrane and a free end available and configured to engage a ciliary structure of the eye. The force translation arm is moveable relative to the lens body to cause inward movement of the shape deformation membrane. Related methods, devices, and systems are provided.

  • Patent number: 10843648
    Abstract: A crash structure for a vehicle, including a bumper crossmember of which the end portions are each connected to a corresponding longitudinal member via a crash box. End regions of the end portions each project in the vehicle transverse direction beyond the corresponding longitudinal member. In each case a first supporting element which protrudes in the direction of a corresponding wheelhouse is arranged at the end regions and, in an accident situation with slight overlapping of the other party in the accident, impinges on the corresponding longitudinal member. In each case a second supporting element is arranged at the end regions of the end portions and, in the accident situation with slight overlapping of the other party in the accident, impinges on a corresponding connecting region between the crash box and the longitudinal member.
