An apparatus for electrochemically detecting and/or measuring an analyte (e.g. melatonin) in a fluid sample has a dry porous carrier that permits flow of a fluid sample by capillary action to biosensor (e.g. an analyte detection electrode set). The biosensor has a working electrode and a counter electrode disposed across the carrier in a non-parallel direction in relation to a direction of fluid flow such that the fluid sample crosses at least the working electrode embedded in the carrier. The working electrode has an analyte-specific binder immobilized on an electrically conductive material and the biosensor is configured to electrochemically, e.g. voltammetrically, detect the presence of and/or measure the amount of the analyte bound at the working electrode after the fluid sample crosses the working electrode.
WO/2015/106334 INSOLE FOR SPORT FOOTWEAR||WO||23.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000654||CORRECT MOTION INC.||LAFRAMBOISE, Steve|
There is provided an insole for a sport footwear, the insole comprises: a forefoot portion comprising an incliner for inclining a foot of a wearer towards an outer side of the insole, a midfoot portion having an arch extending from an underside of the insole, and a rearfoot portion comprising an incliner for inclining the foot of the wearer towards the outer side of the insole. Such an insole can be effective for maintaining a linear motion of the knee of the user. Moreover such an insole can be effective for maintaining the foot of the person inclined outwardly. Thus, the body weight of the person can also be shifted outwardly, which improves balance.
WO/2015/106335 BALLOON CATHETER WITH FLUID INJECTION ELEMENTS||WO||23.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000885||MEDTRONIC CRYOCATH LP||MALLIN, George D.|
A system and method for creating radial-linear lesions in tissue. The system includes a cryoablation device having a first balloon, a second balloon disposed about the first balloon, and one or more splines disposed between the first balloon and second balloon, each spline defining a plurality of ports. The splines may be in communication with a coolant supply, and the first balloon may be in communication with a coolant supply or non-coolant inflation fluid supply. When the first balloon is in the uninflated configuration, the splines may have a substantially linear configuration. Each of the splines may be radially oriented about an elongate shaft and transitionable between the substantially linear configuration and an arcuate configuration when the first balloon is in the inflated configuration. Coolant expelled from the splines between the first and second balloons creates an ablation pattern on the outer surface of the second balloon.
WO/2015/106337 BIT DRIVING TOOL AND DEVICE FOR USE THEREWITH||WO||23.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2015/000005||THUNDER INNOVATIONS INC.||PHAM, Binh|
A component for a bit driving tool is taught having a mid-chamber telescopically received in an outer chamber, a bit storage chamber formed in the mid-chamber and surrounding and rotatable about a central bore, a central rod axially movable through the central bore when the mid-chamber is telescopically retracted into the outer chamber and a flexible arm comprising a magnetic end, movable into and out of axial alignment with the central bore. Telescopic extension of the mid-chamber out of the outer chamber positions the magnetic end of the flexible arm to magnetically connect with a rear end of a bit stored in the bit storage chamber and telescopic retraction of the component moves the flexible arm and the magnetically connected bit radially into the central bore and wherein further telescope retraction of the component pushes the bit axially through and out of the component. A locking tip for use with a bit driving unit is also taught.
