  • Publication number: 20210322765
    Abstract: An implantable electrical stimulation medical system is disclosed. The system includes an implantable medical device having electrical circuitry configured to perform electrical stimulation, a nonstandard implantable medical lead, and an adapter matrix. The adapter matrix electrically interfaces with the electrical circuitry and the nonstandard implantable medical lead to provide electrical stimulation from the implantable medical device to the nonstandard implantable medical lead.

  • Publication number: 20070027491
    Abstract: An implantable medical device having a case with therapeutic componentry contained with the case. A module has a rail around at least a portion of a perimeter of the module and is adapted to be mechanically secured to the case. The case has a rigid fastening channel adapted to receive the rail of the module. The rigid fastening channel has an opening allowing the rail of the module to drop into the rigid fastening channel through the opening and then slide along the rigid fastening channel to be mechanically secured to the case.

  • Publication number: 20060204717
    Abstract: An overmolded substrate having a generally planar substrate with a plurality of support feet on the first side of the substrate. A molding material is molded around the substrate enveloping the substrate of both the first side and the second side of the substrate. The substrate may have a coil positioned on the second side of the magnetic substrate.

  • Publication number: 20050245884
    Abstract: A method of laminating a sheet or sheets to a substrate and a method of laminating a plurality of articles. The substrate is inserted into a press. The sheet is inserted into the press over the substrate. Liquid thermoset polymer is injected into the press. Heat and pressure are applied forcing the liquid thermoset polymer against the sheet and forcing the sheet against the substrate. The liquid thermoset polymer is allowed to cure under heat and pressure forming a cured silicone rubber sheet. The cured silicone rubber sheet is removed from the press. A plurality of articles may be laminated by laminating the second of the articles while the first article is cooling.

  • Publication number: 20050244611
    Abstract: A method of overmolding a substrate having a first side and a second side and a product made by that process. A plurality of support feet are placed on the first side of the substrate. The substrate is placed in an injection mold. The mold is filled with a molding material with the molding material enveloping both the first side and the second side of the substrate. The substrate is removed having been overmolded from the injection mold.

  • Publication number: 20050245982
    Abstract: A connector block providing electrical coupling to electronic componentry of an implantable medical device. The implantable medical device has a case containing the electronic componentry. A preformed electrically conductive “wireform” mounted with respect to a structurally rigid polymer frame forming a plurality of electrical contacts. Potting is formed in situ with liquid thermoset polymer substantially filling any voids in the connector block and forming a thermoset polymer gasket between the connector block and the case.

  • Publication number: 20050246001
    Abstract: A laminate having a plurality of layers of magnetic material sandwiched together having a first side and a second side and a method of making the laminate. The plurality of layers of magnetic material having a plurality of radial grooves. A first insulative layer applied over the first side of the plurality of layers of magnetic material. A lead wire applied to over first insulative layer at a predetermined location on the first side of the plurality of layers of magnetic material. A second insulative layer applied to the first side of the plurality of layers of magnetic material over the lead wire. A third insulative layer applied to the second side of the plurality of layers of magnetic material. Thus, the laminate is ready to receive a coil.
