  • Patent number: 11026798
    Abstract: Provided herein are implants and methods for producing implants. In at least one embodiment, the implants include sheet-based, triply periodic, minimal surface (TPMS) portions. According to one embodiment, the TPMS portions include a gyroid architecture that provides for improved osseointegration and mechanical performance over previous implants due to novel ratios of porosity to compressive strength, among other features. In one or more embodiments, the gyroid architecture is organized into unit cells that demonstrate anisotropic mechanical performance along an insertion direction. In various embodiments, the present methods include novel selective laser melting (SLM) techniques for forming the TPMS portions of implants in a manner that reduces defect formation, thereby improving compressive performance and other implant properties.

  • Patent number: 11017099
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and methods for entropy balanced population measurement. Entropy balancing is a statistical technique for preprocessing data to achieve covariate balance. Weighting coefficients may be dynamically adjusted to satisfy balance conditions or constraints to adjust for inequalities in representation, thereby improving covariate moments. Using entropy balancing and linear regression analysis with panel content exposure and results data provides a mechanism to estimate the effects of multiple exposure vectors simultaneously, including instances where panelists are exposed to a vector multiple times. Data may be obfuscated or anonymized for preprocessing via a double-encrypted intersection-based extraction mechanism, allowing both measurement systems and panel providers to retain confidential information.

  • Patent number: 11003071
    Abstract: Devices and methods for the manipulation and handling of light blocking masks suitable for controlled illumination of the wells of multi-well test plates are described. Such controlled illumination can be used to generate simple or complex three dimensional forms within the wells when used in combination with suitable photoactivatable polymer or gel precursors. Light blocking masks of the inventive concept can include features that stabilize or grip a multiwell plate when in use. Such masks can have apertures having a fixed configuration, or can have apertures with transient or changeable configurations.

  • Patent number: 10842385
    Abstract: A vascular impedance measuring device may comprise a processing component capable of processing raw pressure and flow wave data and a pressure measuring component capable of providing pressure wave data from a specified point in a vessel and forwarding the pressure wave data to the processing component. The device may further include a flow measuring component capable of providing flow wave data from the specified point or a point near the specified point in the vessel and forwarding the flow wave data to the processing component. The processing component processes the raw pressure and flow wave data to produce an estimation of vascular impedance of the vessel from the specified point of measure and may provide data to a feedback system for therapy.
