  • Patent number: 10264971
    Abstract: A system including two or more wearable devices includes at least one sensor in each device to detect signals related to the body of a wearer. User inputs, sensor outputs, or other information are used to determine an activity being performed or otherwise engaged in by the wearer and footsteps, heartbeats, discrete turns of the torso, or other events can be detected, from one or more of the sensor outputs, during a period of time that the user is engaged in the activity. A duration, amplitude, timing, mean value, or other characteristic of each such detected event can be determined, based on the sensor outputs, and used to generate a sample of clinically relevant information about the wearer. This information can then be used to determine the presence, stage, degree, progression, or other information about a disease state of the wearer or some other information about the wearer's body.

  • Publication number: 20190001882
    Abstract: A pregnancy light includes a magnetic base, a base plate, a plurality of light emitting diode (LED) lights, a control system, and an outer covering. The base plate is fixedly attached to the magnetic base. The plurality of LED lights are mounted around a periphery of the base plate. The control system is coupled to the plurality of LED lights and operable to independently and collectively produce a rotating light pattern. The magnetic base may also be equipped with suctions that can securely allow the pregnancy light to remain fixed on the surface of a motorized vehicle, in tandem with the magnetic ring attached to the base. Additionally, the covering for the magnetic base may be made of a rubber-like material to prevent movement of the pregnancy light while situated on a moving vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10087712
    Abstract: In wellbore completions it is desirable to cement or otherwise seal the casing to the wellbore. Many times such operations include sealing the interior of the casing against flow. In those instances a means to open the interior of the casing to fluid flow and thereby establish circulation in the well upon command is needed. Additionally it is desirable to be able to pressurize the well several times prior to establishing circulation. In an embodiment of the current invention an interior sleeve block fluid flow through ports in the housing. The inner sleeve is coupled to a j-slot so that a pressurization cycle will move the inner sleeve and cause the inner sleeve to rotate a predetermined distance. Upon reaching the access position in the j-slot the sleeve is allowed to move to a fully open position.

  • Patent number: 10013625
    Abstract: A method of delivering an image is disclosed. The method includes receiving a request for an image. A variation of quality signature (VoQS) of the image is determined. A VoQS of a particular image is determined based on a plurality of different levels of distortion applied to the particular image. The image is categorized into one of a plurality of clusters of images, wherein the categorization is based on a similarity between the VoQS of the image and one or more other VoQSs of one or more other images within the plurality of clusters of images. A distorted version of the image based on the categorization is delivered.

  • Publication number: 20180003110
    Abstract: Engine inlets are disclosed that include an intake opening for the ingress of incoming air and acoustic filtration means for generating an acoustic wave that separates or clarifies material from the incoming air. The acoustic filtration means can include at least one ultrasonic transducer with a piezoelectric material configured to be driven to create an acoustic wave, such as a multi-dimensional acoustic wave or angled acoustic wave. Physical filtration means, such as an inertial or vortical separator, can be provided. Other engine inlets are also disclosed in which the acoustic filtration means are located within the physical filtration means. Further disclosed are methods for separating material from air employing acoustic separation means and physical filtration means.

  • Patent number: 9856717
    Abstract: In wellbore completions it is desirable to access multiple formation zones in a single well where the more formation zones that can be accessed tend to make the well increasingly economically viable. In an embodiment of the current invention a dart having a tapered or angled spline with a particular width on the darts exterior surface is pumped into a casing string having a number of devices Incorporated at strategic locations along the casing string. Each of the devices incorporated into the casing string have a slot as a part of the device. Each slot also has a particular width. As the dart passes through the devices incorporated in the casing string but towards the surface of the targeted device, the width of the tapered or angled spline is less than the minimum width of the slots in each of those upper devices. Therefore the dart does not engage or otherwise affect any of the upstream devices.
