Notably, the Examiner has construed the claimed phrase “configured to” in the aforementioned recitation of claim 1 to mean “capable of.” See Ans. 10. However, the term “capable of” is broader than the phrase “configured to,” which is more akin to “designed to.” See Aspex Eyewear, Inc. v. Marchon Eyewear, Inc., 672 F.3d 1335, 1349 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (citations omitted). In other words, it is possible for a hypothetical structure to be capable of deforming such that the structure has a size and shape sufficient for the structure to pass over a pulley and the structure not be configured to deform such that the structure has a size and shape sufficient for the structure to pass over a pulley.
