  • Patent number: 10779740
    Abstract: The invention provides a retraining system that requires EM sensors, programmable computers and mechanical structures that are controlled by the programmable computers so that injured body parts of injury subjects are moved by the mechanical structures. The retraining methodology proposes the use of electromyograph (EMG) signals from a healthy subject having a healthy body part to control the mechanical structures that are coupled to the injured body parts of injury subjects. As part of the retraining system, the EMG signals of the same injured subject are also sensed by an EM sensor coupled to said injured subject in order to move the mechanical structures coupled to the injured subject. The system is calibrated to store in the programmable computers specific motions associated to the EMG signals of the healthy subject and to ensure that the EMG signals of the healthy subject and the EMG signals of the injured subject are significantly matched.

  • Patent number: 10670512
    Abstract: The Intrinsic Hyper-Spectral Flow Cytometer (IHSFC) and its associated methodology, improves current flow cytometry by eliminating the need of associated hardware-based elements currently used for spectral data detection. The (IHSFC), rather than using narrow band lasers to excite or interrogate the analytes, the flow stream is excited by a wide wavelength range beam. The raw data generated by the (IHSFC) are as follows; forward light scatter, right angle light scatter, coherent spectral data and non-coherent spectral data. The intrinsic fluorescent spectral components are extracted from the coherent and non-coherent spectral data.

  • Patent number: 10652484
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of obtaining data cubes such that elimination of the irrelevant portion of the illumination reveals the low intensity intrinsic spectral components. The method obtains target and reference data cubes using a single camera and of a single field of view so that low-level intrinsic spectral components may be detected and enhanced under conditions of high illumination intensity without the use of filters. Two exposures in rapid succession of the same field of view at the same camera settings are taken, one exposure of the target is taken under coherent conditions where the field of view is in focus, and the second exposure is of the same field of view taken under non-coherent conditions where the target is defocused such that it has no discernible spatial features in the field of view.

  • Patent number: 10337916
    Abstract: A method is provided to obtain a full range intrinsic spectral signature for spectroscopy and spectral imaging. The method eliminates the irrelevant spectral components and is used to normalize the spectral intensities across the full wavelength ranges obtained from different instrumentation. The method determines the intrinsic instrument noise levels and the noise level across the spectral range is averaged for each spectrum. By determining the percent of the integrated instrument noise relative to the integrated illumination energy for each instrument, the instrument noise can be normalized to one common value and the intensity values of the intrinsic sample spectra can be normalized proportionately and combined into a continuous intrinsic spectrum across the wavelength ranges of the contributing instruments. The methodology is also implemented in spectral imaging and spectral data cubes.

  • Patent number: 10180214
    Abstract: An adjustable LED lighting fixture which accommodates LED lights of varying lengths. The LED fixture has a central body element, and two movable end elements movably attached to two opposing sides of the central body element and extend in a direction normal to a length of the fixture. The two end elements face each other with LED pin sockets facing each other whereby an LED tube light is able to be operationally inserted into the LED pin sockets. Two slidable elements are attached to the end elements and extending in a direction in a direction along the length of the fixture and toward the other of the end elements and through a retention element. The slidable elements permit the expansion and contraction of the length of the LED fixture, by sliding relative movement toward and away from the other of the end elements, to hold LED light tubes of varying lengths.

  • Patent number: 9998636
    Abstract: The present invention is a method of removing the illumination and background spectral components thus isolating spectra from multi-spectral and hyper-spectral data cubes. The invention accomplishes this by first balancing a reference and sample data cubes for each spectra associated with each location, or pixel/voxel, in the spatial image. The set of residual spectra produced in the balancing step is used to obtain and correct a new set of reference spectra that is used to remove the illumination and background components in a sample data cube.

  • Patent number: 9435687
    Abstract: The present invention is a method of obtaining and isolating sample spectra from a wide wavelength illumination source without the use of filters. The method obtains the combined sample and illumination spectra of a sample and removes the illumination spectrum from the combined spectrum. This is accomplished by obtaining both the combined sample/illumination spectrum and the illumination spectrum separately at the same time and under the same environmental and instrument conditions. The illumination spectrum is then subtracted, wavelength by wavelength from the combined sample/illumination spectrum, leaving the pure sample spectrum which may a single spectrum or combination of two or more spectra from different types and/or compounds in the sample.

  • Publication number: 20110017273
    Abstract: A system for concentrating solar energy comprising a collector consisting of a number of reflective panels, a receiver which absorbs reflected energy, a working fluid which absorbs the energy, a highly transmissive cover and internal colorings or coatings to collect indirect radiation, and a solar tracking system to maintain reflector orientation. Optional photo-voltaic panels could also be used for providing electrical energy and are kept at near ambient temperatures. Under normal conditions, solar energy is concentrated by reflectors on the receiver, which transfers the energy to a working fluid which is then used for either hot water heating, desiccant drying for a solar air conditioner, or as a power source. Additional energy is collected from indirect sources using the greenhouse effect.

  • Patent number: 5906104
    Abstract: A heat transfer system including mechanical and electrical components for use with a mechanical air conditioning system to enable the system to efficiently reject heat to a water source, such as a pool or spa while simultaneously cooling an interior space. The air conditioning system incorporates three primary heat transfer coils in a mechanical refrigeration cycle to provide comfort cooling to an interior space while rejecting heat to either the atmosphere or a water source, such as a swimming pool. In an alternate heat pump embodiment, the system is capable of operating in an additional mode to absorb heat from the atmosphere and reject heat to the interior space.
