Patent for Sale:Sleep Apnea Technology
The technology provides a device for treating obstructive sleep apnea by using negative oral pressure to a patient, with a vacuum unit to control and maintain the negative pressure.
The device is a simple structure, easily manufactured, with a huge commercial potential.
Class 417: Pumps
This is the general class for the pumping of fluids, and includes the pumping of slurries, fluent material and the like if handled in a manner not inconsistent with the handling of fluids. A pump is defined as means to move a fluid by taking it from one place or location and moving it to another place or location different from whence it came, the pump, therefore having an inlet and an outlet for the pumped fluid which are separate and distinct. The pumping of the fluid is generally accomplished by action thereon of a mechanical member (eg. piston) or by contact or entrainment with another fluid (eg. jet pumps). Also, the pumping may be accomplished by the direct action on the pumped fluid of an electric or magnetic. This class is the residual home for the formation of a vacuum in an enclosed space by a gettering action; a getter being a material which when placed in an enclosed space reduces the gas or vapor content of the space either by a chemical or physical action. Also, included are those devices and processes in which the fluid is ionized to permit or enhance the gettering action. These devices are often termed "getter-ion pumps".Subclass 417: Unitary pump and motor working member
