Title: Diaphragms with encapsulated springs

Abstract

A device is disclosed comprising a diaphragm mechanism. A diaphragm mechanism comprises an enclosure defined by opposing flexible walls joined along a perimeter of the enclosure and one or more coiled springs contained entirely between the opposed flexible walls. A central, helical axis of the one or more coiled springs is disposed substantially parallel to the opposed flexible walls and arrayed in concentric spirals around a central hole or arrayed in parallel bands.
