  • Publication number: 20190105131
    Abstract: An implant for insertion within a maxillofacial bone of a patient including a tapered body and one or more threads formed along the body. The one or more threads on one or more lead threads include multiple thread forms including both three-dimensional stabilization thread and standard thread (e.g. v-thread, buttress thread, etc.) forms. The one or more threads including the multiple thread forms provides for maximizing the restriction of lateral movement of the implant within a full or partial osteotomy.

  • Patent number: 8121612
    Abstract: Mobile units within an area are located using a wireless local area network. Reference signal transmitters are provided at selected fixed locations within the area. Reference signals are transmitted using the reference signal transmitters using a first selected channel of the wireless local area network. A computer is provided having a database relating signal characteristics of signals transmitted by the reference signal transmitters to location within the area At least one access point is coupled to the computer and provides wireless data communications between the computer and the mobile unit using one or more channels of the wireless data communications system that are different from the first data communications channel.

  • Publication number: 20090129983
    Abstract: The invention is a device for counter-diffusion applications comprising a removable cartridge having a plurality of capillary tubes that may be disposed between first and second members. The first member may be moveable into at least a first and second position. The second member may be moveable into a sealing position wherein the distal ends of the capillary tubes contact a sealant material. In the first position, the proximal ends of the capillary tubes may contact a macromolecular solution, which may cause the macromolecular solution to diffuse into the interior space of the capillary tube. In the second position, the proximal ends of the capillary tubes may be inserted into a corresponding reservoir well having a precipitating solution. The macromolecular solution and the precipitating solution may then counter diffuse against each other in each capillary tube. The removable cartridge may then be removed and replaced with a new removable cartridge.
