  • Patent number: 10918497
    Abstract: An implantable medical device, such as an intervertebral spacer, may comprise a polymeric component and a metallic component. The metallic component can contain both porous metal and substantially-solid metal. The polymeric material can contain particles of an osseointegrative material. The metallic component can be more protruding toward bone than the polymeric component while having a smaller dimension of roughness than the polymeric component. In embodiments, the pin may press-fit against substantially solid metal. The porous metal may surround solid metal which in turn may surround the pin. The pin may have a press-fit with metal and a looser fit with polymeric component, if the metal components and polymeric components are trapped. A pin may connect superior and inferior metal components by a press-fit. The central opening may be exposed to porous metal and also to substantially-solid metal and to polymer. Specific geometries of implants are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200402193
    Abstract: A computer apparatus, such as a validator node, for validating incident-related data records in a distributed electronic ledger is configured to receive a request from an agent to add a proposed incident-related data record associated with an incident to the distributed electronic ledger. In response to the proposed incident-related data record, the computer apparatus determines, from the distributed electronic ledger, one or more attributes of the agent or incident. The computer apparatus determines whether the proposed incident-related data record satisfies validation criteria based at least partially on the one or more attributes of the agent or incident. Once validated, the computer apparatus may then append the proposed incident-related data record to the distributed electronic ledger. Alternatively, the proposed incident-related data record may be appended regardless of validity, but an indication of validity may be appended if the proposed incident-related data record is validated.

  • Publication number: 20200394385
    Abstract: A method for verifying liveness of a finger of a user by capturing a first fingerprint sample from the finger placed on a display by using a first sensor placed under the display. The method may involve transmitting light, by using a first light transmitting display area of the display, towards a first area of the finger. The first light transmitting display area may be smaller than a first sensor area. The first sensor may capture reflected light from the finger. The reflected light may be transmitted through the display. A first feature of the first fingerprint sample may be identified by using the reflected light. The first feature may include scattered light from the finger. The light transmitted from the display may include a first light component with a first wavelength from a first area of the display.
