  • Publication number: 20150217056
    Abstract: Systems for controlling or aiding patient therapy are provided. The systems may include a tissue oxygenation measurement device and a therapy delivery apparatus that is controllable to assist in attaining a target tissue oxygenation level or range, whereby patient health is improved by optimizing delivery of therapy based on measured tissue oxygenation. The therapy delivery apparatus may include, for example, a drug delivery apparatus, a ventilating apparatus, a fluid delivery apparatus and/or a chest compression delivery apparatus. The tissue oxygenation measurement device may include a probe for determining the oxygenation of tissue, for example, muscle tissue, by optically interrogating the tissue. Related methods for guiding patient therapy and exercise training are also provided.

  • Patent number: 5748185
    Abstract: A touchpad (50) having multiple regions that may be linked to various commands or functions within a graphical user interface (GUI). Preferably, a cursor control region (54), a scroll control region (56), and a pan control region (58) are defined on the touchpad. Movement of a contact point in the cursor control region causes movement of a cursor in the GUI. Movement of a contact point in the scroll control region or the pan control region causes scrolling or panning, respectively, of the workspace in the GUI. The multiple regions may be mapped onto a single touchpad member (80) or each region identified with a separate touchpad member.

  • Patent number: 5281958
    Abstract: A pointing device which is removably attachable to a keyboard is disclosed. The pointing device is coupled to an attachment assembly, the attachment assembly being removably and selectively attachable to the keyboard. The attachment assembly includes a coupling assembly and a tilting assembly. The full weight of the pointing device is supported by the computer so that a work surface is not necessary. In one embodiment, a clamping assembly is provided. The clamp assembly includes a variable width clamp to permit the pointing device to be attached to any one of a number of different keyboards or in different positions on the same keyboard. The tilting assembly permits the user to select whether the pointing device is in a horizontal, vertical or other orientation. A rotatable ball of the pointing device is retained in contact with the rotation sensing encoders regardless of the orientation of the housing.
