  • Patent number: 10839149
    Abstract: Automatic generation of document templates based on recognized composition element patterns in a group of clustered documents is provided. Composition elements used in documents are typically unique to a particular user or to a group of users. An automated template generation system detects composition element patterns in documents associated with a given user. Sequences of composition elements from one document are aligned with sequences of composition elements of one or more other documents. The aligned sequences are scored to generate a document distance matrix. The documents are clustered together based on the alignment scores and a document template is generated for each corresponding cluster of documents. In one or more aspects, selecting a document template and updating it results in a modified document template or, in certain cases, a new document template. The generated document templates are displayed in a user interface for selection by a user.

  • Patent number: 7974991
    Abstract: A word processor including a native XML file format is provided. The well formed XML file fully represents the word-processor document, and fully supports 100% of word-processor's rich formatting. There are no feature losses when saving the word-processor documents as XML. A published XSD file defines all the rules behind the word-processor's XML file format. Hints may be provided within the XML associated files providing applications that understand XML a shortcut to understanding some of the features provided by the word-processor. The word-processing document is stored in a single XML file. Additionally, manipulation of word-processing documents may be done on computing devices that do not include the word-processor itself.

  • Patent number: 6592560
    Abstract: A feminine care device for collecting urine including a reservoir defining a recess for receiving urine. The reservoir has a rim and flange configured for periurethral sealing and adhesion to the labia minora, respectively. A tab depends from the reservoir for engagement and adhesion to the anterior vaginal wall. A drain for selectively draining urine from the reservoir is provided.

  • Patent number: 6491623
    Abstract: An implantable device for controlling a body conduit including a cuff portion adapted to substantially encircle a body conduit. An inlet tube is operatively connected for delivering fluid to the cuff portion. The inlet tube has a one-way valve. An outlet tube is operatively connected to the cuff portion for releasing fluid therefrom and includes a normally closed valve. A pumping reservoir is in communication with the inlet tube and the outlet tube, wherein manipulation of the pumping reservoir inflates the cuff portion and manipulation of the normally closed valve deflates the cuff portion. An inflatable lumen surrounds the pumping reservoir and the cuff portion to provide rigidity and balance pressure between the cuff portion and the pumping reservoir.

  • Patent number: 4702735
    Abstract: An assembly of a breakaway needle and catheter is provided for injection by the user, using only one hand. The needle and catheter are inserted by the user, and the needle is then retracted from the puncture site leaving the catheter in place. As the needle is retracted, it breaks apart and separates from the catheter.The assembly includes adhesive coated taping wings to which the catheter is attached. Hence, when the taping wings are attached to the user's body following splitting of the needle, the catheter will be secured in place for long term use.

  • Patent number: 4559043
    Abstract: An assembly for connecting needles and catheters in I.V. applications, chemical analysis, etc., includes a leak proof, sterile, self-sealing septum from which the needle is inserted. When the needle is retracted from the septum, the septum will reseal and thus maintain a leak-proof, sterile seal. The assembly is therefore reuseable, and this represents a considerable cost saving for patients who require continuous therapy such as with diabetics, cancer patients, and the like.The assembly includes a distal end having an outlet bore through which a catheter is inserted. The proximal end of the assembly is connected to an external adaptor to which is attached a needle. The septum is positioned between the distal end and the proximal end to provide a self-sealing seal between the needle and the catheter. This external adaptor with needle may be part of a syringe or shaped to accommodate any standard connector such as a luer lock.

  • Patent number: 4437859
    Abstract: A syringe driving unit comprising free pistons in interconnected cylindrical chambers, one of the pistons carrying a syringe plunger driver and being biased, directly or indirectly, in the driving direction, and one piston being movable to force both pistons into primed or loaded position, the connections between the chambers including a pressure regulator, flow regulator and a needle valve to regulate adjustably the return flow or hydraulic fluid corresponding to the movement of the driving piston. The priming piston may be moved mechanically or pneumatically, and fail-safe mechanism may be provided, if needed, to become effective in case of leakage. Bolus delivery, to augment optionally the adjusted flow, is also provided for.
