  • Patent number: 8873367
    Abstract: Embodiments contemplate one or more techniques for packet filtering. One or more embodiments may apply specific routing and/or forwarding rules on some or each packet when a device has one or more, or multiple, interfaces. Contemplated filtering techniques may be implemented in a module and/or without modifying an IP stack. The contemplated packet filtering techniques may apply to a terminal in uplink and/or downlink as well as to any network node. An incoming packet table may be created using 5-tuple, 6-tuple, and/or tags, among other mechanisms, to support incoming and/or outgoing packet filtering.

  • Publication number: 20140183630
    Abstract: An integrated circuit containing a MOS transistor and a DEMOS transistor of a same polarity may be formed by implanting dopants of a same conductivity type as source/drain regions of the MOS transistor and the DEMOS transistor through a gate of the MOS transistor and through a gate of the DEMOS transistor. The implanted dopants are blocked from a drain-side edge of the DEMOS transistor gate. The implanted dopants form a drain enhancement region under the DEMOS transistor gate in a drift region of an extended drain of the DEMOS transistor.

  • Publication number: 20130297020
    Abstract: A bearing component 2 for a joint replacement prosthesis comprises a first bearing element 4; a second bearing element 6, and a linking element 8, operatively connecting the first and second bearing elements 4, 6 and permitting relaDative motion there between. The flexible linking element 8 prevents dislocation of mobile bearings in a total knee replacement prosthesis. The invention also relates to a bridging element which retains the linking element 8 with some play, which acts as a ligament support 2051, and which causes a deflection of the line of action of a ligament 1018. A joint replacement prosthesis is also disclosed comprising a biasing element 1140 or a tensioning element 1220 operatively coupled to the artificial ligament 1018. The biasing element 1140 or tensioning element 1220 may be housed in the stem of a tibial tray 1006.

  • Publication number: 20130290007
    Abstract: The automated proactive healthcare service and payer based patient scheduling system proactively generates communications to patients with the purpose of scheduling medically appropriate, reimbursable healthcare services. The process utilizes a rules based system to identify patients contained in respective healthcare provider's practice management and patient databases. The system will identify patients eligible for certain healthcare services including but not limited to well-care visits, annual check-ups, and immunizations. The data analyzed by the system includes but is not limited to historical healthcare provider-patient service dates, historical payer reimbursement details, patient demographic data, and payer reimbursement/eligibility details. Those patients identified as eligible for healthcare services will be sent an automated interactive communication regarding that healthcare service to facilitate the scheduling process.
