  • Patent number: 10832304
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes generating a first list of products to recommend to a user. The following steps are then repeated: removing a first product from the first list and placing the first product in a second list wherein the order of the products in the second list determines the order that products appear on a user interface; and comparing each remaining product in the first list to the product placed on the second list and moving products that are similar to the product placed on the second list further down in the first list. A user interface is then generated from the second list to show suggested products to a user.

  • Patent number: 10820664
    Abstract: A shoe-fit testing device includes a pseudo skeletal structure and a pseudo soft tissue structure. The pseudo skeletal structure approximates the bone structure of a human foot and ankle, and the pseudo soft tissue structure encompasses the pseudo skeletal structure. The shoe-fit testing device is capable of transitioning between a compressed state and an uncompressed state. In the uncompressed state, the shoe-fit testing device has a joint girth that is measured at a first value. In the compressed state, the shoe fit testing device has a joint girth that is measured at a second value that is less than the first value. As such, the shoe-fit testing device approximates the flexibility and compressibility of the human foot without requiring a live model.

  • Patent number: 10825080
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving a plurality of attribute headings for a product and storing the product and the associated attribute headings as part of a negotiation. A request for products associated with the negotiation is received and in response, a user interface listing at least one of the attribute headings for the product and providing controls for entering an attribute value for the listed at least one attribute heading is generated and transmitted. An attribute value for the listed attribute heading is received as part of a bid during the negotiation and is stored. An indication that the negotiation is complete is received and in response, the attribute value for the listed attribute heading is locked.
