  • Publication number: 20210170137
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to shortening sleep latency during the wake to sleep transition. Sensory stimulation is delivered to a subject by sensory stimulators during a sleep session, and a measure of wakefulness of the subject is determined. The sensory stimulators are controlled based on the measure of wakefulness of the subject. The sensory stimulators may be controlled to modulate an intensity of the sensory stimulation delivered to the subject. For example, the sensory stimulators may decrease the intensity of the sensory stimulation as the measure of wakefulness decreases. The system then determines that the measure of wakefulness has reached stable sleep. The sensory stimulators are controlled based on the determination that the measure of wakefulness has reached stable sleep. The sensory stimulators may decrease the intensity of the sensory stimulation at a faster rate once the measure of wakefulness reaches stable sleep.

  • Patent number: 10962247
    Abstract: An offset window mount fan includes two or more independently controlled fans controllable to move air in the same direction or in opposite directions. A housing substantially offsets the fans from a direct passage of air into the room. In one embodiment, the fans are mounted in a housing perpendicular to the window, air traveling through the fans turning 90 degrees to pass through the plane of the window and 90 degrees down into the room. Each fan includes a temperature sensor to measure temperature of air moving through each fan. The fans are energized periodically for a short time period to make accurate temperature measurements. When the combined temperature measurements indicate an advantage from fan operation, the fans are activated.

  • Publication number: 20200306494
    Abstract: Typically, high NREM stage N3 sleep detection accuracy is achieved using a frontal electrode referenced to an electrode at a distant location on the head (e.g., the mastoid, or the earlobe). For comfort and design considerations it is more convenient to have active and reference electrodes closely positioned on the frontal region of the head. This configuration, however, significantly attenuates the signal, which degrades sleep stage detection (e.g., N3) performance. The present disclosure describes a deep neural network (DNN) based solution developed to detect sleep using frontal electrodes only. N3 detection is enhanced through post-processing of the soft DNN outputs. Detection of slow-waves and sleep micro-arousals is accomplished using frequency domain thresholds. Volume modulation uses a high-frequency/low-frequency spectral ratio extracted from the frontal signal.

  • Publication number: 20200306495
    Abstract: A system for delivering sensory stimulation comprises a sensor configured to measure brain activity information of a patient during a sleep session; a sensory stimulator configured to deliver sensory simulation to the patient during the sleep session; and a computer system. One or more physical processors are programmed with computer program instructions which, when executed cause the computer system to: determine a first stimulation profile, a second stimulation profile, or a combination stimulation profile thereof based on obtained sleep cycle information and/or obtained cognitive domain information; and provide input to the sensory stimulator based on the determined stimulation profile, the provided input causing the sensory stimulator to deliver the sensory simulations to the patient based on the determined stimulation profile during the detected slow wave sleep in the patient.

  • Publication number: 20200113522
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to systems and methods for encoding and/or decoding brain activity signals for data reduction. In a non-limiting embodiment, first user data associated with a first sleep session of a user is received. The first user data is determined to include at least a first instance of a first sleep feature being of a first data size. A first value representing the first instance during a first temporal interval is determined. First encoding data representing the first value is determine, the first encoding data being of a second data size that is less than the first data size. Second user data is generated by encoding the first user data using the first encoding data to represent the first instance in the second user data, and the second user data is stored.

  • Patent number: 9625170
    Abstract: A wall fan includes a control circuit both controlling the wall fan and a temperature control unit comprising a heater, a cooler, or a Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The control system receives a desired temperature and compares the desired temperature to an outdoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature indicates that drawing outside air into indoor space will drive the indoor air temperature towards the desired temperature, the control system activates the wall fan, and de-energizes the heater, cooler, or HVAC system. When the outdoor temperature indicates that drawing outside air into indoor space will not drive the indoor air temperature towards the desired temperature, the control system de-energizes the wall fan, and energizes the heater, cooler, or HVAC system.

  • Patent number: 9410935
    Abstract: The present invention provides a new process of the transitiometric scanning technique to determine in an experimental way the minimum miscibility pressure of any sample of hydrocarbon at constant temperature (from the atmospheric temperature to 673 K) in the pressure interval of the atmospheric temperature to 400 MPa, including pressure at which the organic matter will precipitate due to the CO2 injection, based on a transitometric technique which has proved to be reliable, highly accurate and highly reproducible. The apparatus used is based on a highly accurate control of the pVT variables and the calorimetric determination of the present phase transitions during the injection process of gases into hydrocarbons. Accurate control of pVT variables enables the determination of the derivative thermodynamic variables useful to define the type of phase transition.
