  • Publication number: 20240104135
    Abstract: A system and method of identifying objects is provided. In one aspect, the system and method includes a hand-held device with a display, camera and processor. As the camera captures images and displays them on the display, the processor compares the information retrieved in connection with one image with information retrieved in connection with subsequent images. The processor uses the result of such comparison to determine the object that is likely to be of greatest interest to the user. The display simultaneously displays the images the images as they are captured, the location of the object in an image, and information retrieved for the object.

  • Publication number: 20240082858
    Abstract: Polymeric electro spray emitters and related methods are generally described. In some embodiments, an emitter may be made from an ionic electro active polymer. The composition of the electro spray emitters described herein may enable the transport of ions and/or liquid ion sources, such as an ionic liquid or room temperature molten salt, through the bulk of the polymeric emitter. In some embodiments, the described emitters may be fabricated using a mixture of an ionic electroactive polymer, a solvent, and a liquid ion source to at least partially mitigate swelling effects of the polymer emitter that may otherwise occur when the one or more emitters are exposed to the liquid ion source during operation.

  • Publication number: 20230372181
    Abstract: A motorized cervical traction device comprises an inferior base configured to attach to a patient support (such as an operating table or gurney), a superior base spaced apart from the inferior base along a cranial/caudal direction, and a set of linear actuators extending between the inferior base and the superior base. The superior base includes an attachment point configured to enable mechanical coupling of a load sensor and a patient head attachment (e.g., Gardner-Wells device or Mayfield skull clamp) to the superior base. In use, the device provides real-time load sensing capability and can apply distraction via extension of the linear actuators to a preset load (force control) or displacement (position control). The device also includes a flexion/extension mechanism that enables rotational positioning of the linear actuators relative to the inferior base along and enables control of the flexion/extension angle of the applied traction.

  • Patent number: 11756175
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media for efficiently, quickly, and flexibly applying median filters to digital image utilizing a separable sorting network approach for computation sharing. For example, the disclosed systems generate a modified digital image by determining pixel values for a number of output tiles in applying a median filter. To generate output tiles, in some implementations, the disclosed systems utilize different forms of separability to precompute sorted columns of pixels to reduce the size of per-pixel tasks required to generate output pixels and to share computations among nearby pixels of an input tile captured from a digital image in generating output tiles. In some implementations, the disclosed systems utilize an interpreter to generate and apply a median filter to a digital image at runtime based on a user-selected filter size.
