  • Patent number: 11178947
    Abstract: The disclosure includes a wallet comprising an open-sided shell, a flexible member coupled to the open-sided shell, and an elastic band coupled to the flexible member. The flexible member may comprise an internal surface and an external surface located opposite the internal surface. In some embodiments, the open-sided shell is coupled to the internal surface. The wallet may be configured to move between open, closed, and clamshell positions. In the clamshell position, the elastic band may be configured to wrap around an external surface of the flexible member, thereby holding the wallet shut.

  • Patent number: 9773320
    Abstract: A method and system for assessing an amount of a blood component of a volume of fluid within a canister, the method comprising: receiving an image of the canister generated by the image acquisition device; selecting a first region of the image exhibiting substantially uniform color, wherein the first region of the image corresponds to a layer of fluid situated between a wall of the canister and a first feature of an insert retained in position within the canister; determining a color parameter representative of the first region; determining a concentration of a blood component within the canister, based upon the color parameter; upon determining the volume of fluid of fluid within the canister, generating an analysis informative of an amount of the blood component within the canister; and providing information derived from the analysis to an entity associated with an individual from whom the volume of fluid originated.
