Extruded fibers may be laid in a single direction, or may curve or turn to be laid in multiple directions. Structures of devices and components may be created using interconnected extruded strands (214, 216) having interstitial spaces (209) between and around the strands (214, 216). This structure may be infused with resin (222) or polymer using a pressure or vacuum based infusion system. In this manner, durable polymeric objects can be created without requiring expensive molds. Other techniques are also possible, including varying the types of strands used in an object to create areas of the object that will preferentially twist or flex in certain ways or directions, as well as producing objects with zones having different types of resin or no resin.

An implantable medical device (IMD) is described capable of determining whether a patient is susceptible to freezing of gait events during ambulatory movement without the patient demonstrating an episode of freezing of gait. In one example, the IMD senses, via one or more electrodes, a bioelectrical signal of a brain of the patient while the patient performs movement associated with freezing of gait. The IMD determines, based on the bioelectrical signal, whether the patient is susceptible to freezing of gait while the patient is not experiencing an episode of freezing of gait. Further, upon detecting the movement associated with freezing of gait, the IMD delivers electrical stimulation therapy to the patient configured to suppress freezing of gait.

Implantable medical devices such as leadiess cardiac pacemakers may include a rechargeable power source. In some cases, a system may include an implanted device including a receiving antenna and an external transmitter that transmits radiofrequency energy that may be captured by the receiving antenna and then be converted into electrical energy that may be used to recharge a rechargeable power source. Accordingly, since the rechargeable power source does not have to maintain sufficient energy stores for the expected life of the implanted device, the power source itself and thus the implanted device, may be made smaller while still meeting device longevity expectations.

The subject matter of the invention relates to a medical engineering apparatus for use in minimally invasive surgery (MIC). Until now, minimally invasive surgery (MIC) as a device solution has stood isolated from the network components of the operating theatre. The specialist medical staff should be assisted with setting devices by an assistance system by way of a better integration of the devices used for MIC (e.g., insufflators, pumps, cameras, monitors) into the overall surgical procedure and by way of a producer-independent, open approach to collecting information, evaluating information and optimizing the process on the basis of information. Much information can already be collected or gathered in the preoperative phase prior to the actual surgical intervention, in order to make said information available for the intraoperative phase. At the same time, a first individualization of the diagnosis or therapy for the respective patient can be undertaken on the basis of these data.
