  • Publication number: 20100191490
    Abstract: For medical implants it is not only important to have a battery powering the implant with a long run-time, but to know exactly at any point in time how long the remaining run-time is. On the other hand the implant together with its battery shall be as user-friendly as possible requiring no or hardly any interaction with the device except for recharging of the battery. To better address these concerns, a method for determining the state of charge of a battery is suggested comprising the steps: charging the battery, discharging of the battery, predicting the state of charge of the battery using a recharge prediction unit, wherein the recharge prediction unit is disconnected from the battery during the discharging of the battery. The prediction of the state of charge of the battery during the discharge of the battery, i.e.

  • Publication number: 20100082081
    Abstract: Presently, many variations of light treatment are used in health care. Prime examples are the in-vivo or ex-vivo photodynamic treatment (PDT) of skin diseases, cancer/tumors, psoriasis, mood disorders, bladder infections, promoting wound closure, recovering spinal cord injuries, and countering muscle/bone atrophy. PDT is a treatment that uses a drug, called a photo-sensitizer or photosensitizing agent, and a particular type of light. The invention relates to an improved PDT device.

  • Publication number: 20100075181
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a solid-state variable capacitor, comprising a first capacitor plate (10), a second capacitor plate (12), extending substantially parallel to the first capacitor plate (10) and on a distance from said first capacitor plate, wherein at least the first capacitor plate (10) is structurally coupled to one side of a first layered solid-state battery wherein the layers (4-8) of said first solid-state battery (3) extend substantially parallel to the first capacitor plate (10) and wherein the first solid-state battery is susceptible to variations in the size in the direction perpendicular to the plane of its layers (4-8). This invention is based on the realization that the thickness of a solid-state battery (3) varies with conditions prevailing in the battery. The movable capacitor plate (10) causes a change of the capacitance value of the capacitor.

  • Publication number: 20100036627
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and an apparatus, like a charger for determining the state-of-charge of a battery which has been charged or discharged and which has not reached its equilibrium state, the method comprising the steps of determining the EMF of the battery by extrapolation of the battery voltage sampled during relaxation after the charge or the discharge process, wherein the extrapolation is based on a model using only variables sampled during the relaxation process and deriving the state-of-charge from the EMF of the battery by using a predetermined relation between the EMF and the state-of-charge. This method is a voltage-prediction method without the need to store parameters beforehand. Instead, the voltage relaxation end value is determined based on the measured first part of a voltage relaxation curve and mathematical optimisation/fitting of a function to this measured part of the relaxation curve.
