  • Patent number: 10679755
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media for data analysis and inference of particle diffusion in mucus barriers and generic permeable biomaterials are disclosed. According to one aspect, the subject matter described herein includes a method for data analysis and inference of particle diffusion in target materials, such as mucus barriers, or their simulants. The method includes collecting experimental data of observed particle movement through samples of a target material or simulant (“the target”), analyzing the collected data to determine the stochastic diffusive process that is being observed for particular particles in the particular sample, using one or more of the observed stochastic diffusive processes to simulate the diffusion of particles through layers of the target of various thicknesses, using the simulation results to determine how passage time scales according to thickness of the target, and verifying the simulation results.

  • Patent number: 10675458
    Abstract: The present invention provides a single surgical method, procedure and/or system that creates open visual and physical access to an identified spinal treatment site that comprises both targeted vertebral and spinal levels to be treated, wherein the spinal levels comprise at least one dorsal root ganglion. A spinal treatment procedure is performed generally in combination with implantation of a neuromodulation system that may comprise placement of electrical lead(s) on the at least one dorsal root ganglion, wherein each lead is in operative connection with a pulse generator that may also be implanted during the surgical method. Electrical stimulation may be generated with the pulse generator through the electrical leads to the at least one dorsal root ganglion during and/or after the closure of the identified spinal treatment site.

  • Patent number: 10650376
    Abstract: Systems and methods for securely storing digital assets using a secure portal are disclosed. Using an isolated computer within an electronic isolation chamber, a plurality of digital asset accounts may be generated, and one or more private keys and a digital asset account identifier corresponding to each of the digital asset accounts may be obtained. A respective reference identifier may be associated with each digital asset account. At least one of the one or more private keys corresponding to each digital asset account may be divided into a plurality of private key segments and written to a card along with the respective reference identifier to create sets of collated cards, wherein each set comprises cards corresponding to different private keys.

  • Publication number: 20200030601
    Abstract: The present invention provides a single surgical method, procedure and/or system that creates open visual and physical access to an identified spinal treatment site that initially comprises spinal levels to be treated, wherein the spinal levels comprise at least one dorsal root ganglion. A spinal treatment procedure is performed generally in combination with implantation of a neuromodulation system that may comprise placement of electrical lead(s) on the at least one dorsal root ganglion, wherein each lead is in operative connection with a pulse generator that may also be implanted during the surgical method. Electrical stimulation may be generated with the pulse generator through the electrical leads to the at least one dorsal root ganglion during and/or after the closure of the identified spinal treatment site.

  • Publication number: 20190361577
    Abstract: A method at an electronic device with a display includes: displaying a user interface having a first region and a second region; receiving, and displaying in the first region of the user interface, a live video stream of a physical environment captured by a remote video camera; displaying, in the second region, a timeline corresponding to a timespan for a first portion of a duration during which the live video stream may have been recorded; in response to receiving a user interaction to move the timespan to a second portion of the duration, transitioning the displayed timeline to a new timeline that corresponds to the timespan for the second portion, and while transitioning, displaying, in the first region, a subset of video frames representing the first and/or second portion of the duration.

  • Publication number: 20190321225
    Abstract: A method is provided for treatment of cataract in combination with a glaucoma procedure while maintaining the intraocular pressure by permitting aqueous to flow out of an anterior chamber of the eye through a surgically stented pathway. A trabecular stent is adapted for implantation within the trabecular meshwork of an eye such that intraocular liquid flows controllably from the anterior chamber of the eye to Schlemm's canal, bypassing the trabecular meshwork. Depending upon the specific treatment contemplated, pharmaceuticals may be utilized in conjunction with the trabecular stent enabling post-cataract healing processes.

  • Publication number: 20190287175
    Abstract: A decentralized investment fund operates according to consensus code on a shared ledger and raises capital by issuing ownership tokens on the shared ledger. The decentralized investment fund may hold digital assets in the consensus code and distribute profits to the token owners according to each owner's dividend preference. A token owner's dividend preference can include digital assets tracked by a different shared ledger, stabletoken digital assets pegged to the value of a digital asset, and cross-chain digital asset swaps. Token issuance may include a proof of accreditation requirement based on cryptographic proof on a shared ledger. The decentralized investment fund may distribute fund documents to the token holders by encrypting the document, first with a symmetric key common to all token holders, and second with an asymmetric key unique to each token holders and based on the token's holder's known public address on the shared ledger.

  • Patent number: 10288685
    Abstract: An apparatus that moves stimulus data and response data between a memory and a device under test (DUT) over a plurality of data transfer banks. In a first mode the data transfer banks output the stimulus data to the DUT as respective independent banks of serial stimulus data channels, and write the response data into the memory responsive to data provided as respective independent banks of channels of serial data from the DUT. In a second mode the data transfer banks output the stimulus data to the DUT as a single bank of combined serial stimulus data channels, and write the response data into the memory responsive to the data provided as a combined single bank of channels of serial data from the DUT.
