  • Publication number: 20210121609
    Abstract: Embodiments of a negative pressure wound therapy systems and methods for operating the systems are disclosed. In some embodiments, a system includes a pump assembly, canister, and a wound dressing configured to be positioned over a wound. The pump assembly, canister, and the wound dressing can be fluidically connected to facilitate delivery of negative pressure to a wound. The system can be configured to efficiently deliver negative pressure in continuous and intermittent modes. The system can also be configured to gradually ramp up and down to set pressure values. The system can also be configured to detect and indicate presence of certain conditions, such as low pressure, high pressure, leak, canister full, and the like. Detection and indication of the presence of at least some of these conditions can be enabled and disabled.

  • Publication number: 20190148956
    Abstract: Systems and methods for allocating electrical current among battery sets connected in a substantially parallel configuration. A respective state of health is determined for each respective battery set in a plurality of battery sets. The respective state of health reflects a respective present amount of total energy able to be stored by each respective battery set relative to a specification of the respective battery set. A respective allocation of electrical current for each battery set in the plurality of battery sets is determined based on the respective state of health for each respective battery set. A current flow through each respective battery set is configured to its respective allocation of electrical current based on determining the respective allocation.

  • Publication number: 20140084949
    Abstract: A surface impedance sensor and method are provided. The surface impedance sensor generally includes first and second electrodes, a driver circuit to drive the electrodes at a plurality of driving frequencies, and a detection circuit to measure the impedance across the first and second electrodes for comparison against a plurality of reference profiles. The method generally includes measuring the localized surface impedance for each of a plurality of driving frequencies to generate a measured profile, and correlating the measured profile with a reference profile. The system and method can verify contact with a particular surface and can be used with a variety of host devices, including for example ultrasound delivery devices.

  • Patent number: 5465925
    Abstract: A helicopter external cargo suspension system (12) has load sensors (19,20) at each suspension point for sensing the magnitude of a load (32) at each suspension point. A delay period (FIG. 6) is determined based on the magnitude of the load, and a load is released if one of the following failure modes occurs for a period which exceed the delay period: one of the suspension points is unloaded, the magnitude of the load exceeds a maximum threshold magnitude, or if the distribution of the load, as indicated by the difference in magnitude at each suspension point, exceeds a difference threshold magnitude. If the magnitude of the load is below a minimum threshold magnitude, the load will be carried by one of the suspension points in response to a failure of the other suspension points.
