Title: ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSOR WITH DUAL PURPOSE ELECTRODE

Applicant/Assignee: TIERNEY MICHAEL J

Application No.: 09/351762 Applic. Date: 1999-07-12

Abstract: The present invention provides an electrode assembly for use in a transdermal analyte sensor operating in an alternating polarity mode in which a single electrode element provides both the counter electrode and iontophoretic electrode functions. By combining both the functions of the iontophoretic and counter electrode, the surface area of the electrode with respect to each function may be made larger. In turn this increases the ability of the electrode to deliver the required electrical field over a larger area when operating in the iontophoretic mode as well as increasing the ability of the counter electrode to compensate for the larger sensing electrode facilitated by this new design.

Title: Thermal conductive sheet with conductive foil

Applicant/Assignee: YAMAGUCHI AKIO,

Application No.: 09/923509 Applic. Date: 2001-08-06

Abstract: A thermal conductive sheet with conductive foil is obtained by press bonding a magnetic foil to a thermal conductive layer via a primer layer. Since the primer layer contains a thermal conductive filler, it has high thermal conductivity and does not interrupt thermal conduction from the thermal conductive layer to the magnetic foil. It also spontaneously destroys a skin layer on the surface of the thermal conductive layer upon the press bonding. Accordingly, the thermal conductive sheet with conductive foil of the present invention improves thermal conduction from the thermal conductive layer to the conductive foil, eliminating the unfavorable effects of the skin layer and the primer layer, and thus improves heat radiation of the thermal conductive sheet with conductive foil.

Abstract: A method for reversibly, or irreversibly, altering the permeability of cells, tissues or other biological barriers, to molecules to be transported into or through these materials, through the application of acoustic energy, is enhanced by applying the ultrasound in combination with means for monitoring and/or implementing feedback controls. The acoustic energy is applied directly or indirectly to the cells or tissue whose permeability is to be altered, at a frequency and intensity appropriate to alter the permeability to achieve the desired effect, such as the transport of endogenous or exogenous molecules and/or fluid, for drug delivery, measurement of analyte, removal of fluid, alteration of cell or tissue viability or alteration of structure of materials such as kidney or gall bladder stones.

In the preferred embodiment, the method includes measuring the strength of the acoustic field applied to the cell or tissue at the applied frequency or other frequencies, and using the acoustic measurement to modify continued or subsequent application of acoustic energy to the cell or tissue. In another preferred embodiment, the method further includes simultaneously, previously, or subsequently exposing the cell or tissue to the chemical or biological agent to be transported into or across the cell or tissue. In another preferred application, the method includes removing biological fluid or molecules from the cells or tissue simultaneously, previously or subsequently to the application of acoustic energy and, optionally, assaying the biological fluid or molecules.

Title: Heat-removal method and apparatus for treatment of movement disorder episodes

Applicant/Assignee: PUTZ DAVID A,

Application No.: 09/904802 Applic. Date: 2001-07-13

Abstract: Heat-removal method and apparatus for treatment of movement disorder episodes

more specifically, a device and method for intracranially suppressing movement disorder episodes upon the detection of physiological symptoms. The device includes a temperature-contact implanted at a targeted portion in the brain which is determined to be associated with such episodes and connection to an implanted heat-transfer operator, typically a Peltier cooler or a thermal-electric cooler. Heat transfer from the temperature-contact to the heat-transfer operator cools the targeted portion and suppresses the movement disorder episode. Such heat transfer is performed upon the sensing of symptoms which normally preface episodes. The symptoms can be sensed intracranially by sensing-contacts, on the skin by a sensor or by a person or animal.

Alternatively, heat removal (cooling) can be performed without sensing symptoms to prevent episodes when the patient is particularly sensitive to, or in danger from, episodes.

Title: Selected processing for non-equilibrium light alloys and products

Applicant/Assignee: FRANZ HEHMANN [US]

Application No.: 10/265467 Applic. Date: 2002-10-07

Abstract: A new class of light or reactive elements and monophase alpha'-matrix magnesium- and aluminum-based alloys with superior engineering properties, for the latter being based on a homogeneous solute distribution or a corrosion-resistant and metallic shiny surface withstanding aqueous and saline environments and resulting from the control during synthesis of atomic structure over microstructure to net shape of the final product, said alpha'-matrix being retained upon conversion into a cast or wrought form. The manufacture of the materials relies on the control of deposition temperature and in-vacuum consolidation during vapor deposition, on maximized heat transfer or casting pressure during all-liquid processing and on controlled friction and shock power during solid state alloying using a mechanical milling technique.

The alloy synthesis is followed by extrusion, rolling, forging, drawing and superplastic forming for which the conditions of mechanical working, thermal exposure and time to transfer corresponding metastable alpha'-matrix phases and microstructure into product form depend on thermal stability and transformation behavior at higher temperatures of said light alloy as well as on the defects inherent to a specific alloy synthesis employed. Alloying additions to the resulting alpha'-monophase matrix include 0.1 to 40 wt. % metalloids or light rare earth or early transition or simple or heavy rare earth metals or a combination thereof.

The eventually more complex light alloys are designed to retain the low density and to improve damage tolerance of corresponding base metals and may include an artificial aging upon thermomechanical processing with or without solid solution heat and quench and annealing treatment for a controlled volume fraction and size of solid state precipitates to reinforce alloy film, layer or bulk and resulting surface qualities. Novel processes are employed to spur production and productivity for the new materials.

Title: Reduction in the noise produced by a rotor blade of a wind turbine

Applicant/Assignee: WOBBEN ALOYS

Application No.: 10/802568 Applic. Date: 2004-03-17

Abstract: Rotor blades for wind power installations are known in many different forms. In a wind power installation the rotors or the rotor blades thereof represent the main source of sound. For reasons relating to acceptance and noise prevention laws, the aim should/must be that of minimizing the levels of sound emission as wind power installations are often also set up in the proximity of residential accommodation.

The levels of sound emission which hitherto occur with a wind power installation or a wind power converter also mean that wind power installations are faced with resistance from populated areas because of the sound they produce and for that reason such installations can be accepted sometimes with difficulty or not at all as authorities responsible for planning permission refuse permission for wind power installations because of the existing environmental requirements, noise also being an environmentally polluting factor. Therefore the object of the invention is further to improve the noise emission of wind power installations. Wind power installation rotor blade comprising means for reducing the sound produced by a rotor blade, wherein the means is formed by a fluid-repellent layer and/or surface which is provided at least on a surface portion of the rotor blade.

Title: Nanoporous diaphragm for electromagentic transducer

Applicant/Assignee: TURNMIRE PATRICK M,

Application No.: 10/693108 Applic. Date: 2003-10-24

Abstract: An electromagnetic transducer such as a tweeter audio speaker, having a very low density diaphragm constructed of a nanoporous material such as aerogel or the like. The solid aerogel diaphragm has improved rigidity and reduced susceptibility to breakup modes. The aerogel may be provided with a skin of e.g. metal, plastic, or oxide to protect it, and it may be built by filling a conventional cone. The skin may encapsulate part or all of the aerogel body's surface, and it may further encapsulate the bobbin, or even the entire voice coil assembly. The nanoporous material comprises a very large percentage of the diaphragm's overall volume, giving the diaphragm a very low overall mass density with respect to conventional diaphragms. This allows diaphragm configurations, such as solid filled spheres, which have excellent stiffness without suffering from the large mass that such shapes would mandate if constructed from conventional materials.

Applicant/Assignee: CABLE COMPONENTS GROUP LLC [US]

Application No.: 11/030436 Applic. Date: 2005-01-06

Abstract: The present invention includes a high performance communications cable exhibiting reduced cross-talk of any form between transmission media that includes one or more core support-separators having various shaped profiles which define a clearance to maintain a spacing between transmission media or transmission media pairs. The core may be formed of a conductive or insulative material to further reduce cross-talk and improve other electrical properties as well as reduce flame and smoke spread. The cable and separators are comprised of principally polymer blends that include olefin and/or fluoropolymer and/or chlorofluoropolymer based resins with and without inorganic additive such as nano-clay composites.

These unique blends offer both flame and smoke suppression while maintaining the characteristics necessary to improve electrical performance and allow for severe cost reduction over conventional separators. The specially shaped core support-separators can be either interior to the cable jacket or be employed singularly without the benefit of a jacket and extend along the longitudinal length of the communications cable. Alternatively, with no jacket for cable completion, a portion of the separator wherein a thin layer of material can act as a type of skin for future mechanical protection is provided. The specially shaped core support-separator has both a central region as well as a plurality of shaped sections that extend outward from the central region that are either solid or partially solid, foamed or foamed with a solid skin surface.

In addition, the invention includes the optional incorporation of hollow ducts that can be used to provide optical or metal conductor media either before, during, or after installation of the cable primarily by gas driven means.

Abstract: The manufacture and use of sacrificial molds for metal casting, in particular for sacrificial molds of green ceramic. For production of the ceramic cast mold one frequently resorts to slip-casting in which the shaping of the mold is brought about by casting of liquid slip into the original mold. Bubbles or blisters frequently occur in this casting, which in the later mold lead to not tolerable surface and joint faults of the mold. This can only partially be counteracted by employment of so-called boosting and careful pouring. It is thus the task of the invention to provide a process for production of mold cores of slip ceramic for metal casting, in which the problem of bubbles or blisters is at least reduced. The invention is solved by using a porous original mold. This provides the advantage, that enclosed or trapped air bubbles or blisters can escape through the pores of the original mold, while the slip on the basis of its surface tension cannot penetrate into the pores.

Abstract: A biomimetic biosynthetic nerve implant (BNI) that uses a hydrogel-based, transparent, multi-channel matrix as a 3-D substrate for nerve repair is disclosed. Novel scaffold- casting devices were designed for reproducible fabrication of grafts containing several micro-conduits, and further tested in vivo using a sciatic nerve animal model and repair of the adult hemitransected spinal cord. At 16 weeks post-injury of the sciatic nerve, empty tubes formed a single nerve cable. In sharp contrast, animals that received the multi-luminal BNI showed multiple nerve cables within the available microchannels, better resembling the multi-fascicular anatomy and ultra structure of the normal nerve.

In the injured spinal cord, the BNI loaded with genetically engineered Schwann cells were able to demonstrate survival of the grafted cells inside the BNI, and robust axonal regeneration through the implant up to 45 days after repair.

Application No.: 11/299328 Applic. Date: 2005-12-09

Abstract: Disclosed are methods and compositions for detecting, analyzing and assessing the significance of calcifying nano-particles. The disclosed methods and compositions generally involve detecting one or more proteins present on a calcifying nano-particle. It has been discovered that particular proteins become associated with calcifying nano-particles. This association provides a means for detecting, classifying, analyzing, categorizing, and assessing calcifying nano-particles.

Application No.: 11/491519 Applic. Date: 2006-07-24

Abstract: The invention relates to methods and compositions for the manufacture and use of novel hydroxy apatite (HA) -calcium binding protein (CaBP) complexes (CaBP-HA complex) that are useful as antigen preparations for immunological assays for the diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of mammalian diseases. The CaBP-HA complexes may be manufactured using synthetic HA that is subjected to serum proteins or by harvesting nanobacteria (NB), also called calcifying nano-particles (CNP), from a mammal. The hydroxy apatite is prepared by incubation with appropriate proteins resulting in conformational changes in said bound proteins. Secondary conformational changes occur when said CaBP-HA complex is subjected to enzymes such as transglutaminase thereby creating covalently bound neoepitopes. The CaBP-HA complex may also contain lipopolysaccharide binding protein (LPSBP) providing for anti-CaBP-LPSBP-HA antibodies detection indicative of disease. Detection of anti-CaBP-HA antibodies in a mammal is via enzyme linked immunosorbent assay.

Title: Stimulating galvanic or slow AC current for therapeutic physiological effects

Application No.: 11/651931 Applic. Date: 2007-01-10

Abstract: Basically, the present invention is directed to a new and improved system for the therapeutic use of currents which includes conducting direct electrical current through the skin of a body being treated, and periodically reversing the electrical current and conducting the current through the skin in the opposite direction, to effectively deliver very low frequency AC current, substantially in the critical range of approximately 0.0027 Hz to 20 Hz. It has been discovered that, within this substantially critical frequency window between approximately six minutes per full cycle and approximately ten cycles per second, a dramatic cancellation of skin damaging ions takes place. At frequencies higher than approximately 20 Hz, the effect is to diminish its DC-like blood stimulation. At frequencies lower than approximately 0.0027 Hz, the risk of skin injury increases substantially. It is well known that the positive electrode unfortunately produces skin damaging hydrochloric acid. Likewise, the negative electrode unfortunately also produces skin damaging sodium hydroxide. However, within the aforementioned frequency range of the present invention, either polarity stimulates blood circulation, but also cancels the undesired skin damaging ions with the reverse portion of the electrical cycle. The reason for neutralization of the harsh injury producing chemicals, i.e., hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, is that both of these chemicals require a finite period of time on the skin to cause damage. Hence, these damaging chemicals are made to cancel each other before damage takes place, by critical frequency selection, in accordance with the invention, of the AC driving signal. Therefore, optimization of a long sought electrotherapeutic device with reduced side effects has been achieved. Another use of the safe AC currents cited above and/or a DC signal with charged membranes preventing injury is its application to wound healing. The conductive electrodes for these devices may take either of two forms, i.e., one may be non-metallic carbon-filled silicone or, preferably of powdered carbon particles. A second form may be a metallic electrode preferably of aluminum, copper, zinc and/or magnesium as examples of metallic electrodes but not necessarily limited to these metals. These metals are preferably in powdered form and contained within a porous membrane with a small opening to attach a conductive lead to a battery source. Still other applications of the innovative use in electrotherapy of charged membranes and/or powdered metal electrodes is its use for drug delivery and diagnostic purposes. For instance, a membrane enclosed stainless steel powdered negative electrode may be used in the pickup probe for glucose detection. Charged membranes would surround the probe as an intervenor between skin and the electrode.

Abstract: A face mask made of woven or non-woven material that accommodates the anatomical features of the face. It has a nose recess or nose-locating space, extended chin space and close fitting cheek areas, for use in medical environments or for general public use. The mask has been developed with innovations that provide security to the wearer by its to the fitting the face particularly without moving upwards or downwards when moving the jaw. This is unlike all other masks tested which either move upwards to reveal the mouth or slide downward to reveal the nostrils due to the movement of the jaw and face when talking or coughing etc. The stability and secure fit to the face is achieved by following the anatomical configuration of the face and by the positioning of the slightly elastic holding straps-the upper one is positioned level with the upper nose to the top of the ear and the lower strap from the mid point of the mask to under the ear-the straps form a loop around the ear. The forces and vectors of the whole mask are directed around the balance point of the mask such that any the movement of the mask in one direction is countered by forces in the other. Furthermore the mask provides protection against cross-contamination and infection by incorporating a nanotechnology anti-microbial component that holds and kills membrane-bound organisms, as well as protecting the wearer against pollen and similar allergens.

Title: Surface- Enhanced Spectroscopy with Implanted Biosensors

Applicant/Assignee: KONINKL PHILIPS ELECTRONICS NV [NL]

Application No.: 11/816534 Applic. Date: 2006-02-16

Abstract: The present invention provides a spectroscopic apparatus, a method and a computer program product for determining the concentration of an analyte of a fluid that flows through a capillary vessel of a biological sample. The spectroscopic apparatus makes use of an imaging system for determining the position of at least one biosensing substrate that has been implanted into the biological sample in the proximity of the capillary vessel but outside the capillary vessel. The biosensing substrate is capable of inducing surface-enhanced spectroscopic effects and is preferably adapted to reversibly and selectively bind a certain analyte or molecule of the fluid, to which the vessel wall of the capillary vessel is at least semi-permeable. By performing a spectroscopic analysis not directly inside the capillary vessel but in close proximity to the capillary vessel, the signal-to- noise ratio of the spectroscopic signals obtained can be appreciably enhanced while disadvantageous scattering and interference effects can be minimized.

Abstract: A permanently-affixed lens cap is presented here. This is a lens cap which one does not have to separate from the camera, to use the camera. Unlike the existing lens caps which clip on the front, and are then removed, these caps remain on the front of the lens practically at all the times. Thus, they do not get lost, and the camera/lens is much safer because of it. Some of the features are: Crystal Clear: a Lens cover which looks like a filter, in that it screws into the filter thread at the end of the lens. This protects the expensive lens from impact and scratches. As an option, the user never has to remove it. Nano-Technology coating: Two separate layers of fine silica particles prevent scratches, and fluorine-containing resins in each layer repel ink marks. This has been used for DVD protection in the industry. Bullet-Proof: Layers of glass and (clear) plastic sandwiched to give great optical clarity, but an incredibly impact resistant front. Non-clear lens, which is permanently attached. The lens cap has a mechanism to flip out of the way. Press a button and the lens cap expands to become a shade, and exposes the front of the lens. Many other variations and extensions are also discussed in the specification and figures.

Applicant/Assignee: MBS S R L [IT]

Application No.: 11/795853 Applic. Date: 2006-01-24

Abstract: A composition, a method, and a kit are provided for chemical skin peeling, based on nano-structured thixotropic inorganic gels, which have a higher potency and are less irritant of the conventional peeling formulations. The gels of the invention can easily be applied on the skin, where they form a stable, uniform layer, that doesn't strain. The kit comprises by a defatting gel, different types of peeling gels and a neutralizing gel. The defatting gel is characterized by a markedly enhanced defatting capacity in comparison to the conventional products, because the sebum solubilized by the solvent is strongly adsorbed on the huge surface of the nano-structured material of the gel. The peeling gels are based on conventional peeling compounds, such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, pyruvic acid, salicylic acid, Jessner solution, but the presence of nano-structured material strongly increases the peeling effect, allowing the use of lower concentrations of peeling compound, with only minimal skin irritation for the user. The neutralizing gel is characterized by a colour change that allows the operator to verify in real time the neutralization of the peeling agent on the treated skin surface. All the gels of the invention can be easily removed from the skin after the treatment. The thixotropic gels of the invention can be used in chemical skin peeling for the treatment of various cosmetic conditions and dermatological disorders, including dry skin, acne, dandruff, keratoses, age spots, wrinkles and disturbed keratinisation.
