  • Publication number: 20230032093
    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.

  • Publication number: 20220391982
    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.

  • Publication number: 20220366491
    Abstract: A multisig digital asset wallet stores collateral for a loan between a borrower and a lender. The borrower and lender agree to loan terms including collateralization requirements. Over the course of the loan repayment period, a Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio between the digital asset collateral and the loan principal balance will change due to fluctuations in the market exchange value of the digital asset and a declining loan principal balance due to regular loan repayments by the borrower. If the LTV exceeds the collateral requirements by an overage amount, then the borrower may sign a transaction and request signatures from other participants to withdraw funds from the multisig collateral wallet. If the LTV fails to satisfy the collateral requirements, participants may spend funds from the multisig collateral wallet to improve the LTV, catch up after a missed payment by the borrower, or pay down the loan principal.

  • Publication number: 20220342116
    Abstract: An environmental monitoring network has transportable, self-contained, environment sensing capsules, each capsule is water-proof, with first and second sections, the second section being hollow. Apertures in the capsule's housing enable fluid and gas entry wherein first sensor(s) disposed internal to the housing measure within the hollow, and second sensor(s) disposed external to the housing measure external to the housing. A controller and power system are connected to the first and second sensors and transmits measured data. An access entry way is on a side of the housing, enabling access to first sensors, controller system, power system, and the communication system. A central data server is configured to receive and analyze the measurement data sent from the capsules. There is a priority list of appropriate personnel for contact by the central data server in an event there is an emergency condition at a capsule location.
