  • Publication number: 20240082052
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, pads, and methods thereof for targeted temperature management. A system, for example, can include a control module and a pad. The pad can include a multilayered pad body and one or more comfort-enhancing features integrated into the pad for mitigating or eliminating skin irritation along at least edges of the pad. The multilayered pad body can include a conduit layer, an impermeable film over the conduit layer, and an adherable layer over the impermeable film. The conduit layer can include one or more conduits configured to convey a fluid through the conduit layer. The impermeable film can be configured to retain the fluid in the conduit layer when the fluid is conveyed through the conduit layer. The adherable layer can be configured to adhere to a body portion of a patient. Methods of the systems and pads can include methods of use.

  • Publication number: 20230218425
    Abstract: Example fluid collection devices, and related systems and methods of use are described. The fluid collection device includes a fluid impermeable barrier having a rear region and a front region at least partially defining an opening and positioned on the fluid impermeable barrier to be at least proximate to a urethra of a user. The fluid impermeable barrier at least partially defines a chamber and an aperture sized and dimensioned to receive a conduit therethrough. The fluid collection device includes a fluid permeable body positioned at least partially within the chamber to extend across at least a portion of the opening and configured to wick fluid away from the opening. The fluid collection device includes a dry adhesive region positioned on the rear region of the fluid impermeable barrier at least partially distal to the opening to interface a garment worn by the user.

  • Publication number: 20230031640
    Abstract: Examples relate to devices, systems, and methods for fluid collection such as urine. The urine collection device includes a fluid impermeable barrier and a fluid permeable body. The fluid impermeable barrier at least partially defines a chamber. The fluid impermeable barrier includes at least one elongated portion having a first width and distal to the aperture and a second portion having a second width greater than the first width. The second portion at least partially defines an opening in the fluid impermeable barrier, and the opening has a maximum lateral dimension greater than the first width of the elongated portion. The fluid permeable body is configured to wick fluid away from the opening into the at least one elongated portion.

  • Publication number: 20220233347
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a medical pad for exchanging thermal energy between a targeted temperature management (TTM) fluid and a patient. The pad includes a top side and a bottom side, as well as a fluid containing layer disposed between the top side and the bottom side, an insulation layer disposed on the top side, and a thermal conduction layer disposed on the bottom side. The pad can be configured to inhibit irritation of the skin of the patient when the pad is applied to the skin. The pad can also include translucent portions to facilitate visual observance of the skin beneath the pad.

  • Publication number: 20120023785
    Abstract: A new wireless remote controlled massaging footwear system, adaptable to typical footwear for individuals to wear and massage their feet during their normal daily activity. Massaging functions including multiple modes of operation and sequencing of massaging components is controlled using a wireless remote control device by the user or by a caregiver. The new system comprises massaging devices including six or more vibration motors and one or more various types of heating elements per foot that are structurally supported in enclosures. Enclosed massaging devices can be repositioned in the sole of the footwear to massage particular areas of the foot. The new system includes accessories such as a lanyard to wear the remote control around the user's neck and a carry case for protecting and transporting the system. The carry case is particularly suitable for a hospice care provider.
