  • Patent number: 9572996
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for the stimulation of thermal receptors in the skin of a patient by means of thermal stimuli. The device comprises a plurality of noninvasive stimulation units for irradiating the skin of the patient with electromagnetic radiation, wherein thermal stimuli are produced by absorption of the electromagnetic radiation in the skin of the patient and the wavelength range of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the stimulation units can be adjusted. The device also comprises a control unit for controlling the stimulation units.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8876769
    Abstract: A medical infusion system with pulse width modulation and a safety circuit and a method thereof are disclosed. Embodiments of the system include a switching device and a pump motor, wherein the pump motor and the switching device are connected in series and constitute a power supply circuit to be connected to a power supply. Embodiments of the system further includes a control signal generator configured to generate a control signal e.g. PWM, and which is connected to input of the safety circuit. Output of the safety circuit is connected to a control input of the switching device such that the pump motor will not operate if there is no control signal applied to the input of the safety circuit.

  • Patent number: 8680974
    Abstract: An electronic device may communicate wirelessly with another electronic device. The electronic device may include a first processor configured to control only wireless communications with the another device but not operations associated only with the electronic device, a second processor configured to control the operations associated only with the electronic device but not the wireless communications with the another device, and a memory device connected between the first and second processors. The first and second processors may each be configured to exchange information with the memory device separately and independently of the exchange of information by the other of the first and second processors with the memory device.
