The Tyco Healthcare Group Lp patent solves the following problem:

Obesity leads to a number of life-threatening and morbidity-producing disease states such as diabetes mellitus, heart disease, vascular disease, osteoarthritis, gout, and obstructive sleep apnea. Body mass index [kg body mass / (m elevation) 2] is used as a measure of obesity; a patient with a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg / m2 is considered overweight, while a BMI greater than 30,0 kg / m2 was considered overweight. If diet and exercise do not succeed in achieving or maintaining an optimal or ideal weight of the body, and if the patient has a BMI greater than 40 kg / m2 (or a a BMI greater than 35 kg / m2 with coexisting bad conditions), a Bariatric surgery can be performed to induce weight loss. Bariatric surgery is often categorized as a restrictive effect, a malabsorptive effect, or both effects. A restrictive effect aimed at making a surgical constriction where the food out of the esophagus or proximal stomach and / or reducing the size of the stomach, which act as a reservoir of food. By preventing the exit of food from the esophagus and proximal stomach and by controlling the size and / or keeping the stomach, the stomach (or its remnants) filled with a small amount of meat and patients who experience early fullness or satiety. Such an effect although it uncomfortable to eat more food or diminishes appetite (satiety formulation). A malabsorptive effect refers to the digestive tract anatomy that absorption of nutrients from food is limited or altered in some way and / or drinking excessive amounts of food causes in patients with good symptoms. In addition to these effects on Bariatric surgery related operations modified digestive tract anatomy, other effects on the endocrine and nervous systems including the gastrointestinal tract also recently valued with significant anti -hilabihang obesity or anti-diabetic effects (see US patent application Ser. No. 12/114628 Kelly et al., filed on May 2, 2008).

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Tyco Healthcare Group Lp’s patent US 8251992 B2 deals with Method and apparatus for gastrointestinal tract ablation to achieve loss of persistent and/or recurrent excess body weight following a weight-loss operation.
Devices and methods are provided for ablational treatment in regions of the digestive tract in post-Bariatric surgery in patients who fail to achieve or maintain the desired weight loss. Bariatric procedures include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, Biliopancreatic diversion, and sleeve gastrectomy. These methods also to the belly portion tract, creating pouches, stoma, and pipes to prevent and / or divert the digestive flow. Post-surgical Dilation changed structures are common and diminishes their Bariatric effectiveness. Ablation compromised structures can reduce their size and compliance, restoration Bariatric effective. Ablation, as did the creation, start mucosa and penetrate deeper into the abdominal wall in a controlled manner. Control can also be given a fractional ablation that ablates tissue within a target region and leaves a part of the largest affected. Embodiments of the device include a ablational electrode forest that spans 360 degrees and a war that spans an arc of less than 360 degrees.

The Henderson Industries, Llc patent solves the following problem:

An ongoing effort to reduce the drag in vehicular structures is of great importance as the fuel economy will be a greater consideration in vehicular design. As the drag of a car increases, the amount of fuel needed to move vehicles also increased because of greater energy required to overcome drag. For example, it states that for a vehicle traveling at 70 mph, 65% of the total fuel consumption of the engine of the car used to overcome drag. Therefore, even a small reduction in drag experienced by a vehicle traveling at a speed of course would result in a significant improvement in fuel economy.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Henderson Industries, Llc’s patent US 8251436 B2 deals with Devices and methods for reducing vehicle drag.
