  • Patent number: 10945790
    Abstract: The disclosed invention relates to an improved system and method for treatment of soft tissue, e.g., for treatment of a snoring condition. The system can include a laser source; a hand piece; and a device for directing radiation emitted by the laser source to a treatment area (e.g., an oral treatment area). In some cases, the handpiece can include an optical element (e.g., a lens) mounted within a replaceable cartridge and adapted to modulate a laser beam such that it is non-ablative, prior to its delivery to a treatment region. In various embodiments, the system includes a CO2 laser capable of performing treatment in a more efficient manner than conventional techniques.

  • Publication number: 20150365738
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a system for receiving wireless power includes a magnetic core and a plurality of layers of unbraided electrical conductors wrapped around the magnetic core. Each unbraided electrical conductor includes a first endpoint and a second endpoint; the first endpoint and the second endpoint are electrically connected to a circuit to provide power thereto, and two of the unbraided electrical conductors are electrically insulated from each other between the first endpoint and the second endpoint. The system may include a biocompatible, magnetically transparent, rigid polymer casing surrounding the magnetic core and at least a portion of the electrical conductors.
