  • Patent number: 10105550
    Abstract: Configurations are described for utilizing light-activated proteins within cell membranes and subcellular regions to assist with medical treatment paradigms, such as hypertension treatment via anatomically specific and temporally precise modulation of renal plexus activity. The invention provides for proteins, nucleic acids, vectors and methods for genetically targeted expression of light-sensitive proteins to specific cells or defined cell populations. In particular the invention provides systems, devices, and methods for millisecond-timescale temporal control of certain cell activities using moderate light intensities, such as the generation or inhibition of electrical spikes in nerve cells and other excitable cells.

  • Publication number: 20130056954
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for assisting an athlete in obtaining consumables such as food and sunblock while racing on a bicycle without slowing down, endangering him/herself, or performing unhygienic acts. In one embodiment, a mechanical one-hand-operable food-dispensing container may be coupled to a cyclist's bicycle such that it may be easily reached, and the solid pieces of food dispensed easily palmed by the same hand that operates it while the cyclist is racing. In another embodiment, a one-hand-operable liquid-sunblock-dispensing pump may be coupled to a cyclist's aerobars, such that its plunger may be depressed by the cyclist's thumb and the palm of the same hand may be positioned to receive the expelled sunblock, enabling the racer to apply sunblock without slowing down or endangering him/herself.

  • Publication number: 20120314832
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for assisting an athlete in counting laps on a repetitive course, and providing feedback to the athlete during the event regarding the number of laps that have been completed. In one embodiment, a mechanical or digital counter may be coupled to a runner, cyclist, cyclist's bicycle, or swimmer such that an input interface may be easily reached, and such that a feedback interface may be viewed during the event. In other embodiments, an input interface may be automated with wireless technologies, and the athlete may be provided with counting and/or timing feedback through a feedback interface coupled to the athlete that may be viewed during the event.
