  • Patent number: 11826162
    Abstract: A variety of medical and non-medical devices are exploited by users to address a wide range of conditions. However, in the vast majority of instances, the device has a limited number of options with respect to its fit for the user and its performance. Further, the determination of target performance and fit are established on a qualitative basis rather than a quantitative basis. In many instances, these combinations lead to low user acceptance of the device due to the resulting performance and fit issues. Accordingly, it would enhance performance and user acceptance if a quantitative determination provided a recommended type where options exist, and this determination provided the basis of a custom designed device to the user's specific anatomical and/or performance requirements.

  • Patent number: 11806479
    Abstract: A method of music therapy informed processes provides an effective online process to help a user regulate their mood through appropriate music selection choices. The method offers mood and music assessments to evaluate the user's mood, music preferences, goals, and understanding of the correlation between various moods and music. A mood sequence formula (MSF) is subsequently created to generate stylized and personalized music medicine pill (MMP) playlists. With additional recommendations of music exercise routine/regimen (MER) to the user, the method delivers therapeutic MMP playlists of the music therapy informed process with personalized music to manage physiological and behavioral responses, emotional regulation, performance and emotional intelligence. Using daily tracking and specific measurement data of biometrical and physiological devices, the user can track the progress and thus enable the method to fine tune the MSF and MMP playlists for the best effectiveness of the music therapy informed method.

  • Patent number: 11794037
    Abstract: A method for radiation therapy treatment verification includes acquiring: treatment plan information from a radiation therapy system; patient image data; and transit image data received from an electronic portal imaging device during radiation therapy. The treatment plan information is divided into a plurality of segments. Predicted segment image data is determined utilizing a predicted image calculation algorithm and at least the patient image data and the treatment plan information. A predicted integrated image is determined through superposition of the predicted segment image data. Measured segment responses are determined from the transit image data utilizing the predicted segment image data and the predicted integrated image. The measured segment responses are converted to measured segment doses. A measured dose map having a sum of the measured segment doses is compared to a planned dose map based on the treatment plan information to assess radiation treatment delivery.
