  • Publication number: 20200219615
    Abstract: Systems and methods of treating a sleep disorder of a subject include providing a therapeutic stimulation device comprising a transducer configured to emit transcutaneous vibratory output to a body part of the subject; generating physiological data with a worn sensor and providing it to a processor; providing a stimulation pattern for transcutaneous vibratory output to be emitted by the transducer comprising a perceived pitch, a perceived beat, and an intensity; causing the transducer to emit the transcutaneous vibratory output in the stimulation pattern; determining if the subject is in a pre-sleep state or a sleep state based on the physiological data; and altering the stimulation pattern based on determining the subject is in at least one of a pre-sleep state or a sleep state comprising at least one of (i) reducing a frequency of the perceived pitch, (ii) increasing an interval of the perceived beat, or (iii) reducing the intensity.

  • Patent number: 10708043
    Abstract: Perfect secrecy can only be assumed if the length of the key is as long the message sent and the cardinality of the key space is the same as that of the message. The preferred embodiment will demonstrate how to implement a one-pad communication system between a transmitter and a receiver where only a few parameters need to be transferred to the receiver. The preferred embodiment will also demonstrate that a true random number will be generated and used. In an M-sequence LFSR, the integers N+K=M will be used. 2N will be the number of random number runs and 2K will be the quantity of random numbers generated during the runs. The formula is: (2N?1)*(2K)+(2K?1).

  • Patent number: 10628978
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method and a system for processing input data for display in an optimal visualization format. The method includes receiving of the input data and identifying one or more visualization formats for displaying the input data based on preferences of the user. An optimal visualization format is identified by applying business rules on each of the identified visualization formats for displaying the input data in the optimal visualization format. In an embodiment, the instant disclosure helps in selecting a most relevant visualization format for displaying the input data. Also, one or more business interpretations and statistics related to the input data are displayed along with the input data, thereby helping users in analyzing and interpreting the input data.

  • Patent number: 10593237
    Abstract: An interactive display module operative to be inserted over an existing tiered greeting card display fixture. The interactive display may contain one or more spinners which are able to spin about a horizontal axis. Each spinner contains many sides or facets, each side or facet containing a removable caption strip thereon containing various words, phrases, graphics or other printed matter. The use of two or more spinners allow for the random creation or phrases, graphics, etc. that are intended to provide the consumer with a fun way to interact with the greeting card fixture.

  • Patent number: 10528999
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided to assist a user to identify one or more businesses of interest. Individual selections of businesses by end users to retain information corresponding to the businesses may be facilitated. Collections of business information may be retained in a repository. Each end user may be classified into a set of categories based on attributes. A first end user may be matched to a first category. A first set of collection information associated with a first set of end users that correspond to the first category and the first location may be identified. A recommendation for the first end user may be determined based on the first set of collection information, the first category, and the first location.

  • Patent number: 10456668
    Abstract: An integral greeting card/game is disclosed wherein a multi-panel greeting card also serves as a game board and is combined with a game piece and launch mechanism to create a novel, interactive greeting card. The multi-panel greeting card contains a sound module therein and a magnetic trigger is contained and concealed below one or more of the multiple greeting card panels. The game piece contains a magnet therein so that when the game piece comes into contact with the area of the greeting card above or proximate to the magnetic trigger, playback of an audio file is initiated. In one embodiment, the game piece is operative to interact with a touch screen of a mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20190076643
    Abstract: A peripheral device for regulating neural correlates of arousal and emotion regulation to be worn or held against the body is disclosed. The device can be triggered by either physiological signs or manual intervention and produces cutaneous signals such as vibration or electricity using novel combinations of physiologically reactive frequencies without effort on the part of the user. One embodiment includes combining sensors that measure changes in physiological signals of stress such as speech rate and pitch, galvanic skin response, or heart rate variability, and, using a machine learning algorithm on personalized data, can determine whether these changes are likely to benefit from regulation. If they are outside an idiosyncratic predetermined range, the device produces stimulation and the person will feel regulated if they are touching/wearing the device, or can choose to use the device if it is not currently being touched or worn.
