  • Patent number: 10658948
    Abstract: A DC/AC electrical power converter device having inlet terminals for electrically connecting to a DC electricity power supply network, outlet terminals for electrically connecting to an electric motor, a chopper electrical converter coupled to the inlet terminals, and an electrical inverter coupled between the chopper electrical converter and the outlet terminals. The converter device further includes a control unit for controlling the electrical inverter and that is configured to operate using pre-calculated pulse width modulation with pre-calculated unchanging switching instants for the controlled switches of the electrical inverter regardless of the frequency of rotation of the motor and of the voltage of the electricity network for connection to the device.

  • Patent number: 8734510
    Abstract: An intraocular lens to be implanted into the capsular bag after ablation of the crystalline lens includes a central optical portion and a haptic portion including haptic members arranged on the periphery of the optical part and for positioning the intraocular lens in the capsular bag. On the one hand, the posterior surface of the optical portion includes a sharp ridge at the peripheral edge and, on the other hand, the posterior surface of the haptic members includes a proximal area in the vicinity of the peripheral edge of the optical portion, each proximal area including at least one tooth extending substantially along the entire width of each haptic member, the tooth or teeth having a sharp edge that becomes serrated in the posterior capsule in order to limit the migration of the epithelial cells of the haptic members towards the optical portion.

  • Patent number: 8500676
    Abstract: A device and a method for a peritoneal dialysis treatment having several cycles include a cycler controlled by a processor. The cycler fills the abdominal cavity with dialysis fluid, and drains the abdominal cavity. A sensor senses a variable related to the draining of the dialysis fluid. The draining is interrupted when the variable reaches a breakpoint at which the variable is radically changed, thereby leaving the residual volume of fluid.
