  • Patent number: 11986403
    Abstract: Systems and methods for modular adjustable prosthetic volume compensation are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a system for adjusting fit of a prosthetic device includes: a pump having a bleed actuator, a plunger and a pressure bulb. The system also includes a bladder fluidically coupled to the pump. The bladder lines a posterior section of an interior of a prosthetic device. A volume of the bladder is changeable by a pumping action of the pump. The volume of the bladder at least partially determines a space available inside the prosthetic device. The bleed actuator is configured to decrease a volume of the bladder. The plunger in operation squeezes the pressure bulb of the pump.

  • Patent number: 11922595
    Abstract: A method for execution by a computer generating a virtual reality environment utilizing a group of object representations by identifying an exclusion asset and modifying a set of common illustrative assets to exclude the exclusion asset to produce a redacted set of common illustrative assets. The method further includes rendering a portion of the redacted set of common illustrative asset to produce a redacted set of common illustrative asset video frames and selecting a subset of the redacted set of common illustrative asset video frames to produce a common portion of video frames for the virtual reality environment. The method further includes rendering representations of object representations to produce remaining portions of the video frames for the virtual reality environment. The method further includes linking the common portion and the remaining portions of the video frames to produce the virtual reality environment for interactive consumption.

  • Publication number: 20240071593
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that provide smart alerts to users, e.g., alerts to users about diabetic states that are only provided when it makes sense to do so, e.g., when the system can predict or estimate that the user is not already cognitively aware of their current condition, e.g., particularly where the current condition is a diabetic state warranting attention. In this way, the alert or alarm is personalized and made particularly effective for that user. Such systems and methods still alert the user when action is necessary, e.g., a bolus or temporary basal rate change, or provide a response to a missed bolus or a need for correction, but do not alert when action is unnecessary, e.g., if the user is already estimated or predicted to be cognitively aware of the diabetic state warranting attention, or if corrective action was already taken.

  • Publication number: 20230058254
    Abstract: A particle receiver includes an inlet, an outlet and multiple tubes rotatably coupled to the inlet and the outlet. The tubes receive particles via the inlet, the particles passing along a passageway of each of the tubes to the outlet. The tubes receive a solar flux as they rotate to heat the particles passing through the tubes. A heat transfer coefficient of the particles is increased by increased mixing via air flowing in the tubes, fins used to mix the particles or via channels via which the particles pass through that increase turnover and mixing of the particles.
