  • Patent number: 10537262
    Abstract: A system for detecting a type of stroke includes a processing circuit. The processing circuit is configured to receive heart data regarding a heart rhythm of a patient and physiological data regarding a physiological characteristic of the patient. The heart data is indicative of an occurrence of atrial fibrillation and the physiological data is indicative of an occurrence of a stroke. The processing circuit is further configured to determine a likelihood that the stroke was an embolic stroke based on the heart data and to provide an output including an indication of the likelihood that the stroke was an embolic stroke.

  • Patent number: 10491050
    Abstract: Systems, methods, computer-readable storage mediums including computer-readable instructions and/or circuitry for control of transmission to a target device with communicating with one or more sensors in an ad-hoc sensor network may implement operations including, but not limited to: generating electrical power from at least one ambient source via at least one structurally integrated electromagnetic transducer; powering at least one transmitter via the electrical power to wirelessly transmit one or more sensor operation activation signals to one or more sensors; and at least one of powering one or more sensing operations of one or more sensors via the electrical power or charging one or more power storage devices electrically coupled to the one or more sensors via the electrical power.

  • Publication number: 20190030529
    Abstract: In embodiments, a silicon part and a titanium part may be soldered together without breakage or instability. In embodiments, silicon and titanium may be soldered together with a soft solder joint including indium silver, where the temperature excursion between solder solidus and use temperature limits the strain between the two surfaces. In embodiments a silicon micropump surface may be treated to remove its silicon oxide coating, and then Ti—W, Nickel, and gold layers successively sputtered onto it. A corresponding titanium manifold may be ground flat, and plated with electroless nickel. The nickel plated manifold may then be baked, so as to create a transition from pure Ti to Ni—Ti alloy to pure Ni at the surface of the manifold, and for protection of the upper Ni surface, a layer of gold may be added. The two surfaces may then be soldered in forming gas.

  • Publication number: 20180193426
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments of the present invention are directed to stabilized insulin compositions suitable for use in implantable artificial pancreatic devices. In embodiments, purified insulin may be made more stable by introducing an insulin analog that will form a heterodimer with the purified insulin. For example, a quantity of between ½ to 10% of one of A21 desamido insulin or Lispro may be added to a purified insulin preparation, resulting in a more stable insulin. Various other methods and preparations of stable insulins, and various catheters for delivering insulins from an implantable device to a body are also presented.
