  • Publication number: 20210379423
    Abstract: Various embodiments of a system and associated methods for a rapidly manufacturable face mask assembly are disclosed herein. The face mask assembly can be fabricated using methods and materials that are easily accessible and more quickly produced than traditional manufacturing methods. The main mask body is intended to be efficiently 3D printed, with the addition of a removable face seal made of silicone or other soft and flexible polymers. The mask body includes anchor points for various strap options, as well as a custom filter retainer that can be customized to accommodate the use of numerous different filter materials, while the face seal restricts airflow to intake only through the attached filter.

  • Patent number: 10967175
    Abstract: An implantable therapy lead is disclosed herein. The lead includes an elongated lead body having a suture sleeve. The suture sleeve is supported on the lead body and has each of an outer surface and an inner surface radially inward of the outer surface. The inner surface defines a lumen through which the elongated lead body extends. The suture sleeve further includes a structure projecting radially inward and/or outward from the inner surface. The suture sleeve is compressible from a first state into a second state by applying a constrictive force to the outer surface of the suture sleeve such that, when in the second state, the structure contacts the elongated lead body, at least in part, to resist movement of the elongated lead body relative to the suture sleeve.

  • Patent number: 10657741
    Abstract: In one example, the present disclosure describes a device, computer-readable medium, and method for regulating access to electronic entertainment to incentivize desired behavior. For instance, in one example, the behavior of an individual is monitored through data received from an electronic device. The behavior is compared to a predefined behavioral goal stored in a profile for the individual, and a predefined incentive associated with satisfaction of the predefined behavioral goal by the user is identified. The predefined incentive comprises access to an electronic entertainment medium. An instruction to the electronic entertainment medium is generated to grant access to the individual when it is determined that the individual has satisfied the predefined behavioral goal.

  • Patent number: 10201699
    Abstract: A therapy lead has a distal header, a helix-shaft assembly, and a ring seal. The distal header has a cylindrical passage, and the helix-shaft assembly has a shaft and a helical anchor distally extending from the shaft. The shaft extends through the cylindrical passage. The ring seal circumferentially extends about the shaft and inside the cylindrical passage. The ring seal has a proximal face, a distal face, an outer circumferential surface, an inner circumferential surface, and a side wall. The distal face is opposite the proximal face. The outer circumferential surface extends between the proximal face and distal face. The inner circumferential surface is opposite the outer circumferential surface and extends between the proximal face and distal face. The inner circumferential surface defines a center hole of the ring seal that extends between the proximal face and distal face.
