  • Patent number: 11313036
    Abstract: Process for manufacturing a printhead for a 3D manufacturing system that uses metal electrodeposition to construct parts. The printhead may be constructed by depositing layers on top of a backplane that contains control and power circuits. Deposited layers may include insulating layers and an anode layer that contain deposition anodes that are in contact with the electrolyte to drive electrodeposition. Insulating layers may for example be constructed of silicon nitride or silicon dioxide; the anode layer may contain an insoluble conductive material such as platinum group metals and their associated oxides, highly doped semiconducting materials, and carbon based conductors. The anode layer may be deposited using chemical vapor deposition or physical vapor deposition. Alternatively in one or more embodiments the printhead may be constructed by manufacturing a separate anode plane component, and then bonding the anode plane to the backplane.

  • Patent number: 11056219
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method analyzes a medical treatment plan for a patient having a medical condition and determines a value of health care of the plan. The method includes a processor executing instructions to enter the patient into an electronic medical records (EMR) system of a medical facility visited by the patient, assign the patient a diagnosis, recording the medical treatment plan, and generate a portal for accessing and displaying the medical treatment plan. The method further includes a health care value analytics (HVA) server accessing and using historical data, generating a value baseline for approved medical treatments of medical conditions addressed by the medical treatment plan, generating one or more HVA data objects that provide a running comparison of the medical treatment plan and the value baseline, and providing the HVA data objects for display through the portal onto an EMR/HVA access device.

  • Patent number: 10980693
    Abstract: During orthopedic surgeries, body parts are moved in different ways to cause different anatomic features (e.g. muscles or the trochanters) to tighten or loosen, or become more or less prominent during the intended surgical incisions, which can result in easier surgical procedures. Body parts can be moved using a variety of different structures. The exemplary structures described herein can allow for: (1) a person's leg and foot to be rotated about the axis of the leg (i.e., femur/tibia axis); (2) a person's leg can be pivoted generally about the hip/femoral head/acetabulum to vary the angle between the axis of the leg and a median sagittal plane; (3) a person's leg can be moved in a direction parallel to the leg axis; and/or a person's leg can be pivoted in a generally vertical plane, about the femoral head/acetabulum while the axis of the leg and the median sagittal plane remaining substantially parallel.

  • Patent number: 10923216
    Abstract: A health status platform includes a receiving component that receives a test result a test of a biological sample collected from a human patient. The test result includes an indication of a presence of an infectious disease in the patient, and an identification and a verification of the patient. The platform includes a certificate component that issues a certificate of origin of the biological sample; and a data merging component that cooperates with a venue access manager that controls access to a venue. The data merging component implements a distributed ledger system that stores encrypted test results of the patient and the identification and verification of the patient, and an end-to-end encryption system that receives an encrypted venue access request from a venue access manager, decrypts the access request, determines if an access request is valid, and if valid, provides an encrypted certificate of origin to the venue access manager.
