  • Patent number: 10289816
    Abstract: A computer implemented method is disclosed for obfuscating an algorithm. The computer-implemented method includes (1) receiving ciphertext input data, and (2) executing obfuscated program instructions using the ciphertext input data and an obfuscation key. The ciphertext input data is based on plaintext input data encrypted using an input encryption key. The obfuscated program instructions are configured for concealing initial program instructions. The initial program instructions are configured for (1) receiving the plaintext input data, (2) providing plaintext output data based on an algorithm, and (3) providing ciphertext output data. The ciphertext output data is configured for decryption to provide the plaintext output data.

  • Patent number: 9596960
    Abstract: A toothbrush holder enclosure is provided which includes a three parts: a back plate, a resilient clamp and a front cover. The back plate and front cover form a housing. The clamp part has an inverted “U” shape and is made of a resilient material giving it a springy property. The clamp is shaped to urge two clamp arms towards one another in order for the clamp to grip a toothbrush. Two rollers at the tips of the clamp arms engage a toothbrush head inserted in the clamp as the clamp is spread apart from the clamped position to a deviated state. With the toothbrush inserted, the rollers exert pressure on a neck of the toothbrush to hold the toothbrush fast in place. The rolling engagement action of the rollers permits gripping toothbrushes having heads fitted with rubber sides.

  • Publication number: 20130192610
    Abstract: A sealing apparatus for an anatomical part comprises a support collar that comprising an annular body. An elastic sealing membrane is positioned within the support collar. The sealing membrane defines an annular sealed chamber having a given inner diameter in a natural state of the elastic material. A port in the sealing apparatus is in fluid communication with the chamber. The port is adapted to be in fluid communication with a device for reducing pressure in the chamber to increase the given inner diameter of the chamber in a collapsed state, so that an anatomical part may be inserted into the sealing apparatus. A sealing apparatus and accessories are also provided, as is a method for sealing an anatomical part in an inner cavity of an accessory.

  • Patent number: 8196740
    Abstract: A bag (10) for transporting or storing a partly disassembled bicycle is provided in the form of a lightweight soft shell with strategically located rigid reinforcements. The bag (10) can be collapsed in a compact storage configuration when not in use while still providing added impact protection to the most vulnerable parts of the bicycle. Inflatable partitions (42) can be provided on either side of the bicycle frame to provide added protection while still allowing collapsing of the bag (10) when not in use. Hub attachments (18) can be provided on the side panels (16) of the bag (10) for securely holding the bicycle wheel by the hub thereof on the inner surface of the bag soft side panels (16).
