  • Publication number: 20200037939
    Abstract: Systems and methods for wireless communication of analyte information are disclosed. Example embodiments include an analyte sensor system. The analyte sensor system may include an analyte sensor to gather information related to a level of an analyte in a host. The analyte sensor system may include circuitry to transmit and receive wireless signals using a first antenna. The analyte sensor may be coupled to the circuitry before the analyte sensor system is transitioned into an operational state. The analyte sensor system may include a second antenna to receive an input signal from a source external to the analyte sensor system and to transmit a modified signal. The circuitry may use the first antenna to receive the modified signal. The analyte sensor system may transition into the operational state in response to the modified signal received using the first antenna.

  • Publication number: 20190387844
    Abstract: A web-adjustment clamp includes a main body including a first lateral channel, a second lateral channel, a fold channel, and an exit channel. The first lateral channel, the second lateral channel, the fold channel, and the exit channel are configured to accept, have passed through, and retain a first webbing. The fold channel may be further configured to accept, have passed through, and retain a second webbing. In at least one embodiment, a locking door is pivotally coupled to the main body. The locking door is configured to be moved between an open position and a closed position. The first webbing is adjustable in relation to the web-adjustment clamp when the locking door is in the open position, and locked in place when the locking door is in the closed position.

  • Patent number: 10514383
    Abstract: Metabolites and signatures (panels) of metabolites are applicable as biomarkers in clinical diagnosis, in particular for neonatal encephalopathy. They are useful tools in differential clinical diagnosis for early detection of brain injury, determination of brain areas affected by the insults and prediction of adverse neurological outcome and may also be applied in diagnosing disease progression and treatment effect. An in vitro method for predicting the likelihood of neonatal encephalopathy of distinct brain areas, identification of affected brain area(s) of neonatal encephalopathy and risk of brain damage and prognosis and neurological outcome due to identification of the type and extent of damage of distinct brain tissues, in particular of hippocampus and/or basal ganglia, is provided.

  • Publication number: 20190323809
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein include layered mesh containers and methods for using the containers to safely transport and dispose of airbag inflators having ammonium-nitrate-based propellant. For example, a container with at least two single-layer sidewalls is provided that can hold multiple airbag inflators and withstand up to 4 moles of matter being deployed from an inflator having ammonium-nitrate-based propellant. The container can contain the inflator and any shrapnel associated with the explosion while also venting gases expelled as a result of the explosion. Various container designs are provided, along with methods for using these containers.

  • Publication number: 20190263237
    Abstract: A wind deflector assembly for use in an open roof construction for a vehicle includes an upper elongate element which is movably connected to a stationary part and a flexible wind deflecting material that extends at least along the front of the roof opening, being attached at a lower end to the stationary part and at an upper end to the upper elongate element to keep the wind deflecting material taut in at least the effective position. The wind deflecting material is folded at the upper end in a folded part, said folded part having a hinge part and an opposite first outer end part and wherein the folded part is mounted inside a first cavity whereby the first outer end part is being supported on the upper surface of the protruding part in the first cavity at least when the wind deflector assembly is in an effective position.

  • Publication number: 20190225043
    Abstract: A system for damping control for a vehicle includes a parameter component and a damping adjustment component. The parameter component is configured to determine one or more driving parameters of a vehicle. The one or more driving parameters include a velocity of the vehicle. The damping adjustment component is configured to adjust damping of suspension of the vehicle during driving based on the one or more driving parameters. The damping adjustment component is also configured to adjust damping of suspension at a zero velocity for a threshold time period in response to transitioning from a non-zero velocity to the zero velocity.

  • Publication number: 20190184156
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for the concurrent treatment of multiple oral diseases and defects while promoting general oral hygiene utilizing direct current electricity and methods for manufacturing the same. Electrodes are used to deliver a direct current to the gingival tissues of a mouth in order to achieve a number of therapeutic, prophylactic, and regenerative benefits. These benefits include killing oral microbes, increasing oral vasodilation, reducing oral biofilm, improving oral blood circulation, reversing oral bone resorption, promoting oral osteogenesis, treating gum recession, and fostering gingival regeneration. Other benefits include the treatment of gingivitis, periodontitis, and oral malodor, and other systemic diseases correlated with oral pathogens.
