Disclosed herein is a tool for removing an implanted item from beneath the skin, the tool comprising: a clamping device configured to engage with the skin to retain the implanted item in a known position relative to the tool; a cutting device for cutting an opening in the skin; and a gripping device configured to move through an opening in the skin and grip an implanted item; such that, in use, the implanted item is retained by the clamping device substantially in the known position and the cutting device creates an opening in the skin through which the gripping device then passes to grip an implanted item. Advantageously, the tool reduces the complexity of an implant removal process and does not require significant operator skill to use.

Magnetic wound closure device and use

A wound closure device using magnets to draw skin together. When two skin adhering magnets are placed on opposite sides of a wound in a polar opposite configuration, the magnets attract each other, thus drawing the skin underneath the magnets together and reapproximating wound edges.

Electronic apparatus, information processing apparatus, information processing method, and recording medium

In the electronic apparatus, a contact impedance compensation controller calculates a first compensation value and a second compensation value so that a resulting value obtained by adding a third resistance value between a measuring electrode and first skin to a first resistance value is equal to a resulting value obtained by adding a fourth resistance value between a reference electrode and second skin to a second resistance value, determines first information on the basis of the first compensation value, determines the second information on the basis of the second compensation value, and sends the first information to the first compensation circuit.. .

Electrode falloff detection

Systems for detecting contact between an electrode and a patient's skin using one or more contact detection schemes are provided. An example system can include an electrode assembly comprising at least one electrode configured to be disposed substantially proximate to the patient's skin and configured to at least one of sense an ecg signal of the patient and provide one or more therapeutic pulses to the patient, one or more sensors disposed on the electrode assembly and isolated from the electrode, the sensors configured to measure one or more properties to determine contact between the electrode and the patient's skin, and a controller configured to receive data representing the measured one or more properties and determine, based at least in part on the received data, whether the electrode is in contact with the patient's skin.

Contact-type sensor

The present invention limits measurement error and sensor element damage. When a contact-type sensor (200) is placed in contact with skin (10), a gap (200a) is formed between the skin (10) and a sensor element (214).

Regional oximetry sensor

A regional oximetry sensor has a sensor head attachable to a patient skin surface so as to transmit optical radiation into the skin and receive that optical radiation after attenuation by blood flow within the skin. The sensor includes windows that press into the skin to maximize optical transmission.

Device for measuring differences in conductivity

A device for measuring differences in conductivity that allows early detection of infectious/inflammatory periodental and/or apical diseases or in joint and/or muscle regions, before they can even be detected radiologically. The device has an electrical emitter in millivolts, with a given negative-peak square wave and a given frequency, both defined by a pulse width and interval between pulses, which, by means of two electrodes, one stationary and one movable, is able to produce a mild tingling sensation on the patient's skin immediately over the teeth apices or joint and/or muscle regions as well as dermatological, glandular and integumentary areas affected by inflammation and/or infection and display the intensity of the condition affecting the tissue to the professional on an illuminated scale display..

Holding member and holding member set, masking member and masking member set, and photoacoustic apparatus

A photoacoustic apparatus is used that includes a light irradiating unit irradiating a subject that is part of an examinee with light; a probe receiving an acoustic wave generated from the subject irradiated with the light and outputs a signal; and a determining unit determining, based on information related to a specific light absorbing region on a surface of the subject, whether or not a masking member that optically masks the specific light absorbing region is arranged at a specific position.. .
