  • Publication number: 20190159716
    Abstract: An apparatus for generating a quantifier of cognitive skills in an individual includes a user interface, a memory to store processor-executable instructions, and a processing unit communicatively coupled to the user interface and the memory. Upon execution of the processor-executable instructions by the processing unit, the processing unit is configured to: render a first instance of a task with an interference at the user interface, requiring a first response from the individual to the first instance of the task in the presence of the interference and a response from the individual to at least one evocative element. One or more of the first instance of the task and the interference comprises the at least one evocative element. The user interface is configured to measure data indicative of the response of the individual to the at least one evocative element, the data comprising at least one measure of emotional processing capabilities of the individual under emotional load.

  • Patent number: 8499421
    Abstract: A restraining device for restricting mobility an individual is provided. The restraining device includes an elongated strap having first and second ends. An attaching member, having first and second portions, is secured to the elongated strap, where the first portion is attached to the first end and the second portion is slidably attached to the second end creating a retaining loop for tightly wrapping around an individual's legs. The second end of the elongated strap is extended out a car door leaving the second end hanging outside the car. A retaining strap, defining a series of loops, is attached to a side of the second end of the elongated strap between the second portion of the attaching member and a ring which is attached to the second end of the elongated strap. A fastening member is attached to the ring and is used to adjust the length of the second end hanging outside the car.

  • Publication number: 20060117763
    Abstract: The present invention features an apparatus for storing, preserving and dispensing perishable and degradable food and goods. A housing is provided, in which at least one modular unit is disposed. Physically removed from the modular unit is a vacuum pump for creating a partial vacuum therein. Optionally provided are a temperature control device to create and maintain a range of temperatures; a humidity control device to create and maintain a humidity range; and, a gas sourcing system to create and maintain various gas environments within the modular unit(s). The modular unit can be a slidable drawer. Moreover, more than one drawer can be provided, each drawer stacked above one another, with or without a housing, and all of the drawers being operatively connected to the vacuum pump, and optionally connected to the temperature control unit (only provided for the closed housing), the gas sourcing system and the humidity control device.
