  • Publication number: 20190076669
    Abstract: This invention provides for a dermal repair system including a dermal repair device which is configured to be placed on the skin of a user. The dermal repair device is in the form of a removable silicone sheet which can be securely fixed in place and re-used after cleaning etc. The silicone sheet includes sheet sections and a housing section into which a rechargeable control unit can removably be inserted. Waveguides in the form of a dimple teardrop pattern are provided for directing radiation or light to distal ends of the sheet. The control unit includes a low-level radiation or light source from which radiation or light is directed along the sheet for a therapy regimen to treat closed wounds and scars, such as, C-section and breast surgery closed wounds and scars to improve healing and scar appearance. The system further comprises a recharging station configured for recharging the control unit.

  • Publication number: 20180264284
    Abstract: Ocular devices are provided for placement in the upper fornix of the eye and having a body that encompasses a low-level light source, an energy source, a microcontroller, and an antenna for delivering a programmable, fade in-out, light therapy regimen to treat neurological and ophthalmic diseases and disorders. In one embodiment the ocular device delivers a programmable green light therapy to reduce elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) and retinal hypoxia during the nocturnal period, that is, when these risk factors are at their highest level especially in glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy patients.

  • Patent number: 8926510
    Abstract: Described herein is a device for glaucoma treatment and monitoring that comprises a combination of an intraocular pressure (IOP) sensor and a glaucoma drainage device. The device comprises an IOP sensor and an inductive antenna mounted within a porous biocompatible material that forms the drainage path. The IOP sensor is mounted in a footplate portion of the device and is mountable in the anterior chamber of an eye. The footplate portion is connected to a body portion that houses the spiral antenna by a neck portion which retains the footplate portion in a suitable position within the anterior chamber. Due to its size, the footplate portion housing the IOP sensor can readily be inserted into the anterior chamber with the body portion housing the spiral antenna located outside of the anterior chamber in a sub-scleral space to disperse the aqueous humour.

  • Publication number: 20130342631
    Abstract: A multi-user videophone hub may include a processor, a video camera, a display, and a wireless communication interface to communicate with at least one local handset. The processor may be configured to receive video from the at least one local handset, and create a composite video stream based on video from the video camera and the video received from the at least one local handset. The processor may also be configured to send the composite video stream to a remote device and receive video from the remote device. The processor may then show the video from the remote device on the display, and send the video from the remote device to the at least one local handset.
