|20130184673||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR THERAPEUTIC ELECTRICAL STIMULATION - A patch for a therapeutic electrical stimulation device includes a shoe connected to the first side of the patch, the shoe including a body extending in a longitudinal direction from a first end to a second end, and having first and second surfaces, the first end of the shoe defining at least two ports, and the first surface of the shoe defining a connection member. The patch also includes at least one conductor positioned in the ports of the first end of the shoe. The shoe is configured for sliding insertion into a receptacle defined by a controller so that the conductor is connected to the controller to deliver electrical current from the controller, through the conductor, and to the electrodes, and the connection member is at least partially captured by a detent defined by the controller in the receptacle to retain the shoe within the receptacle.||07-18-2013|
|20130023816||ELECTRODES, ELECTRODE SYSTEMS, AND METHODS OF MANUFACTURE - Multilayer electrodes, electrode systems, and stimulation systems are disclosed. An electrode may include a conductive layer with a unitary tail, a connector disposed on a distal end of the tail, and a nonconductive top layer disposed along a top portion of the conductive layer. An electrode may include a magnetic lead connector socket, or a receptacle formed by a depression in the conductive layer configured to receive a male connector. An electrode system may include a plurality of conductive zones and a plurality of connectors. A stimulation system may include an electronics layer in electrical contact with a conductive layer via a puncture connection, and may provide an iontophoretic treatment followed by a TENS treatment. Other electrodes, systems and methods are also disclosed.||01-24-2013|
|20110295160||SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MODULATING PRESSURE WAVE THERAPY - A processor-controlled, energy-based therapy apparatus includes a device configured to provide therapeutic energy to a patient and a processor that controls the output of the device. The output of the device is based on output profiles programmed into the processor. The output profiles include a therapeutic energy output profile and a ramp-up energy profile. The therapeutic energy output profile includes a desired target energy level and a therapeutic duration for controlling the output of the device during a therapeutic period. The ramp-up energy output profile includes an initial treatment energy level and a ramp-up duration for controlling the output of the device during a ramp-up period. The energy output specified by the ramp-up energy output profile incrementally increases over the ramp-up duration as a function of the desired target energy level and the ramp-up duration.||12-01-2011|
