  • Patent number: 10378875
    Abstract: Athletic apparel, including compression garments and athletic footwear, is disclosed as capable of monitoring the wear of compression fabric and/or cushioning material by attaching a performance gauge onto the apparel. The performance gauge includes microcapsules that contain a colorless dye and/or a co-reactant, wherein the microcapsules can breakdown in concert with the wear and degradation of the compression fabric or cushioning material, thereby allowing the dye and co-reactant to mix and produce color indication. As the wear of the fabric and cushioning material increases, more microcapsules breakdown resulting in a progression of color change visible through additional layers on the performance gauge, or by the fabric and/or cushioning material. The microcapsules can be engineered to breakdown based on any variation of factors that correspond to the degradation of compressive fabric and cushioning material, including shear force, tension, impact force, and/or exposure to high temperature and water.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7020868
    Abstract: A workstation is programmed to operate as an application development system for a medical imaging system. Objects programmed in an object-oriented language are selected from a component library using a visual component assembler which enables them to be dragged from a framework area on a display to a workspace area. Properties of selected components may be edited, and the resulting collection of components may be graphically linked together and saved as an application program.

  • Publication number: 20050076064
    Abstract: A method of saving and restoring an application for an imaging system (10) includes loading a developing environment (92). An initial application, for the imaging system (10), is loaded or generated in the developing environment (92). The initial application is modified to generate an updated application. Component and link modifications between the initial application and the updated application are saved. The updated application is then stored with the modifications in a tag file. The tag file is selected and the updated application is restored according to the tag file.
