  • Patent number: 5111818
    Abstract: An ambulatory physiological evaluation system including a main and background gamma radiation detector provided in a vestlike garment worn by a patient for the purpose of monitoring and/or diagnosing the patient's physiological activities during a prescribed period of time. Also included is an apparatus and method for determining the exact location of the left ventricle of the heart, positioning the main radiation detector relative to the left ventricle, and maintaining the position of the main radiation detector relative to the left ventricle during an ambulatory study period. The ambulatory physiological evaluation system also contains electronic circuitry which monitors and processses information obtained from the radiation detectors. Information from the main and auxiliary detectors, as well as ECG electrodes is recorded on a portable cassette recorder.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 3966992
    Abstract: A process for treating soya to improve the nutritional value thereof by destroying or eliminating the trypsin inhibitor activity of the soya. The process comprises mixing soya with whey, adjusting the pH of the mixture so that it is at a pH other than the natural pH of the soya and heating the mixture.
