James L Reuss, Gerhard von der Ruhr, Dennis E Bahr, Michael T Larsen: Limited use medical probe. OB Scientific, Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren sc, May 23, 2006: US07048687 (445 worldwide citation)

A limited use medical probe is disclosed, including a memory for maintaining a use value. The medical probe is coupled to a medical device that inhibits its function when the use value reaches a predetermined threshold value, preventing improper use of the probe. The probe memory may also store iden ...
