  • Publication number: 20190246990
    Abstract: A method of estimating the probability of a seizure in a subject, the method comprising: receiving historical data associated with epileptic events experienced by the subject over a first time period, the historical data comprising physiological data associated with each epileptic event and a time at which each epileptic event occurred; generating a temporal probability model of future epileptic events based on the time of each of the epileptic events, the temporal probability model representing a probability of a future seizure occurrence in each of a plurality of time windows; generating a probabilistic model based on the physiological data associated with each epileptic event; weighting the probabilistic model based on the temporal probability model to generate a weighted probabilistic model of future seizure activity; and outputting an estimate of seizure probability in the subject using the weighted probabilistic model.

  • Patent number: 10358867
    Abstract: A motorized window covering switching mechanism is described herein. The switching mechanism includes a deflectable arm and a pull cord. The deflectable arm is connected to a first contact, and the pull cord is connected to the deflectable arm such that, as the pull cord is tugged, the deflectable arm deflects to move the first contact toward a second contact, thereby converting gestures of the pull cord into electrical signals that control a motorized window covering. In some embodiments, cord gestures that deflect the deflectable arm include pull sequences, numbers of pulls, strength of pulls, or combinations thereof. Additionally, in some embodiments, a controller receives the cord gestures and translates the cord gestures into operational commands to control and operate a window covering gearbox assembly.

  • Patent number: 10334459
    Abstract: A coverage solution recommendation tool may generate prioritized lists of coverage solutions for resolving a network coverage problem at a location. The tool may obtain network parameters of a wireless communication network that provides services to user devices at the location. The tool may further acquire device parameters of the user devices used at the location, as well as collect environment parameters associated with the location. The environment parameters may affect whether a wireless telecommunication carrier is able to leverage additional coverage solutions to provide services at the location. Accordingly, the coverage solution tool may generate a prioritized list of coverage solutions for resolving the network coverage problem based on the parameters.

  • Publication number: 20170228508
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for proximity-based retrieval of medical data are described. Methods may include receiving, at a mobile device, a first beacon signal from a first medical monitoring device, determining a proximity between the mobile device and the first medical monitoring device based on the first beacon signal, and determining whether to receive medical data collected by the first medical monitoring device based on the determined proximity. Systems may include a medical monitoring device coupled with a patient and configured to collect medical data associated with the patient and transmit a beacon signal and a mobile device configured to determine whether to receive the medical data collected by the medical monitoring device. The determination may be based on a proximity between the medical monitoring device and the mobile device and the proximity may be determined based on the beacon signal.

  • Publication number: 20070015471
    Abstract: A frequency plan is provided for particular use in a transceiver. Advantageously, a single oscillator may be used to generate desired frequency signals. One or more power splitters receive the signal and equally divide the signal into first and second signals having a frequency substantially equal to the original. Multipliers on each arm of the transceiver receive a signal and increase the frequency of the signal. In one exemplary embodiment, multiple signals having different frequencies may be transmitted over the same cable due in part to the generated frequency separation between the signals. In another exemplary embodiment, multiple signals may be transmitted over multiple cables. Additionally, multiple signals over one or more cables may be transmitted at or below 3 GHz.

One or more power splitters receive the signal and equally divide the signal into first and second signals having a frequency substantially equal to the original. Multipliers on each arm of the transceiver receive a signal and increase the frequency of the signal. Ultimately, multiple signals having different frequencies may be transmitted over the same cable due in part to the generated frequency separation between the signals. In one particular aspect, the frequency plan provides a two-thirds relationship between the frequencies of the multiple signals.

  • Patent number: 6124742
    Abstract: A wide bandwidth frequency multiplier (48) multiplies a first frequency of an input signal (52) to generate an output signal (54) having a second frequency. The multiplier (48) includes first stage doubler (56). The doubler (56) includes a lumped element power splitter (62), a push-push amplifier (80), and a combining junction (96). The power splitter (62) splits the input signal (52) into first and second signals (70, 72) that are balanced in phase. A series resistive element (86) maintains amplitude balance between the first and second signals (70, 72). First and second feedback circuits (166, 184) are integrated with first and second transistors (164, 182) so that the push-push amplifier (80) operates over wide bandwidth. In addition, the multiplier (48) includes a second stage doubler (58) configured similar to the first stage doubler (56) for producing an output signal (54) that is quadruple the frequency of input signal (52).
