arrays of strips
Explanation:
It's difficult to be more precise, even in the abstract language of patients, without knowing something about the "device", but I should have thought something along the lines indicated above, with possibly "stacks" instead of "arrays", depending on the context.

Welcome to the twilight world of patents!

Thank you. I will use "stacks of strips" since it is not clear if it is lamina or not.
I do not want to guess on the specific, so I will remain vague and use strips.
