  • Publication number: 20200121439
    Abstract: An example medical device for treating a body lumen is disclosed. The medical device includes an expandable scaffold including first and second regions, each of the first and second regions include a plurality of interstices located therein. The medical device also includes a covering spanning each of the plurality of interstices of the first region. The second region is free of the covering. A biodegradable gripping material is disposed on an outer surface of the covering. Further, the expandable scaffold is configured to shift from a collapsed state to an expanded state and the second region is configured to contact an inner surface of the body lumen in the expanded state. Additionally, the gripping material is designed to initially prevent migration of the expandable scaffold upon implantation in the body lumen until the second region is secured to the inner surface of the body lumen.

  • Publication number: 20090142351
    Abstract: A novel gene PGC-3, and its role in regulating the transcriptional activity of PPAR? in adipose tissue. PGC-3 is highly expressed in human white adipose tissue and has utility in the development of new therapeutic agents for use in the treatment of obesity and other related disorders such as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance syndrome, dyslipidemia, and atherosclerosis.

  • Publication number: 20080042052
    Abstract: A MEMS oscillator, such as a MEMS scanner, has an improved and simplified drive scheme and structure. Drive impulses may be transmitted to an oscillating mass via torque through the support arms. For multi-axis oscillators drive signals for two or more axes may be superimposed by a driver circuit and transmitted to the MEMS oscillator. The oscillator responds in each axis according to its resonance frequency in that axis. The oscillator may be driven resonantly in some or all axes. Improved load distribution results in reduced deformation. A simplified structure offers multi-axis oscillation using a single moving body. Another structure directly drives a plurality of moving bodies. Another structure eliminates actuators from one or more moving bodies, those bodies being driven by their support arms.

  • Publication number: 20060187512
    Abstract: A scanned light display system includes a light emitter array having a plurality of light sources operable to emit diverging light and an array of collimating elements positioned so that each of the collimating elements receive at least a portion of the light emitted from a corresponding one of the light sources. Each of collimating elements is configured to substantially collimate the received light from at least one corresponding light source into respective beams. The scanned beam display is operable to scan the respective beams to provide an image to a viewer. The displayed image appears substantially fixed to a viewer as the viewer's eye moves relative to the array of collimating elements. In one embodiment, each of the collimating elements is a curved mirror. In other embodiments, each of the collimating elements includes at least one lens or a curved mirror/lens pair.

  • Publication number: 20060181484
    Abstract: A scanned light display system includes a light source operable to emit light and a curved mirror positioned to receive at least a portion of the light. The curved mirror is configured to substantially collimate the received light. The substantially collimated light is scanned to form an image by moving at least one of the light source and the curved mirror relative to each other. Alternatively, the scanned light display system includes a light source operable to emit light, a curved mirror positioned to receive some of the light, and an optical element positioned to receive light reflected from the curved mirror. The optical element is configured to substantially collimate the reflected light. The substantially collimated light is scanned to form an image by moving at least one of the light source, the curved mirror, and the optical element. Scanning mirror assemblies and methods of making are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20050179976
    Abstract: A high performance MEMS scanner is disclosed. In some embodiments, scanner mirror has a wide and short aspect ratio that is similar to rotating polygon facets. Long torsion arms allow large rotation angles including 20° zero-to-peak mechanical and greater. Suspensions couple the scan mirror to torsion arms, reducing dynamic mirror deformation by spreading the torque load. “leverage members” at the distal ends of the torsion arms help reduce stress concentrations. Elimination of a mounting frame increases device yield. Heater leads allow for precise trimming of the scanner resonant frequency. A compressive mount holds mounting pads against mounting structures.
