  • Patent number: 10695247
    Abstract: A patient support includes a cover defining an interior region, an air permeable first layer located in the interior region, and a support layer located beneath the air permeable first layer. A pressure sensing layer is located underneath the support layer. At least one air supply is coupled to the support layer. A controller is coupled to the air supply and to the pressure sensing layer. The controller controls inflation and deflation of the support layer in response to a signal from the pressure sensing layer.

  • Publication number: 20200034737
    Abstract: Systems are presented for generating a natural language model. The system may comprise a database module, an application program interface (API) module, a background processing module, and an applications module, each stored on the at least one memory and executable by the at least one processor. The system may be configured to generate the natural language model by: ingesting training data, generating a hierarchical data structure, selecting a plurality of documents among the training data to be annotated, generating an annotation prompt for each document configured to elicit an annotation about said document, receiving the annotation based on the annotation prompt, and generating the natural language model using an adaptive machine learning process configured to determine patterns among the annotations for how the documents in the training data are to be subdivided according to the at least two topical nodes of the hierarchical data structure.

  • Publication number: 20190303428
    Abstract: Methods are presented for generating a natural language model. The method may comprise: ingesting training data representative of documents to be analyzed by the natural language model, generating a hierarchical data structure comprising at least two topical nodes within which the training data is to be subdivided into by the natural language model, selecting a plurality of documents among the training data to be annotated, generating an annotation prompt for each document configured to elicit an annotation about said document indicating which node among the at least two topical nodes said document is to be classified into, receiving the annotation based on the annotation prompt; and generating the natural language model using an adaptive machine learning process configured to determine patterns among the annotations for how the documents in the training data are to be subdivided according to the at least two topical nodes of the hierarchical data structure.

  • Publication number: 20190194166
    Abstract: The invention is directed to substituted pyridine derivatives. Specifically, the invention is directed to compounds according to Formula (Iar): wherein Yar, X1ar, X2ar, R1ar, R2ar, R3ar, R4ar and R5ar are as defined herein; or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or prodrug thereof. The compounds of the invention are selective inhibitors of DNMT1 and can be useful in the treatment of cancer, pre-cancerous syndromes, beta hemoglobinopathy disorders, sickle cell disease, sickle cell anemia, and beta thalassemia, and diseases associated with DNMT1 inhibition. Accordingly, the invention is further directed to pharmaceutical compositions comprising a compound of the invention. The invention is still further directed to methods of inhibiting DNMT1 activity and treatment of disorders associated therewith using a compound of the invention or a pharmaceutical composition comprising a compound of the invention.

  • Patent number: 10271934
    Abstract: A toothbrush provides a head with bristles, a neck and a handle. An eccentrically rotational weight is engaged for rotation with a motor. The motor and weight are disposed within the handle. The handle, neck and head each have a different intensity of vibration. The toothbrush houses an electrical circuit, which includes a processor and at least two LEDs (light emitting diodes) at least one of which illuminates the neck and optionally also the head and the ends of the bristles attached to the head. At least two of the LEDs in the circuit are capable of emitting different colored light with respect to each other. The at least two LEDs are switched on for a predetermined time in a predetermined sequence under the control of the processor.

  • Patent number: 6090082
    Abstract: A medication delivery pen having a vial retainer with a side opening have flexible snap wings that spread to receive and retain a standard or threaded vial within the vial retainer. The vial retainer also includes an improved means of attaching the vial retainer to a pen injector body, using a cam and cam follower design together with a ratcheting mechanism to prevent removal of the vial from the medication delivery pen. Alternatively, a release mechanism could be used so that the vial may be removed from the medication delivery pen. In addition, the vial retainer includes an opening for receiving the vial defined by a pair of flexible snap wings.
