  • Patent number: 11883286
    Abstract: A replacement heart valve prosthesis is loaded onto a balloon mounted onto a balloon shaft of a catheter system. The balloon shaft is rotatably engaged with an actuator on the handle of the catheter system. Rotation of the actuator by a first amount in a first direction permits rotation of the heart valve prosthesis by a known amount during the procedure so that alignment of the commissures of the replacement valve with the commissures of the existing valve can be predictably achieved.

  • Publication number: 20230400447
    Abstract: An waveguide on access tube (WOAT) system measures soil moisture by sensors placed at various depths of a medium, such as soil. The WOAT system includes a rigid tube into which an inflatable tube with various sensors bonded to it is inserted. Once in place, the rigid tube is removed and the inflatable tube and its sensor are inflated to the diameter of the hole or channel in which it is positioned. The ability to inflate the inflatable tube allows for the sensors on the inflatable tube to be force fit against the interior wall of the hole or channel for proper soil or ambient environment measurements.

  • Patent number: 11835352
    Abstract: Presented are techniques of identifying, processing and displaying data point clusters associated with map information in an efficient manner. Methods and systems are disclosed which process map information to identify clusters of requested data points for display, based on iterative clustering and filtering of the data points. Methods and systems are also disclosed which generate polygons representing the clusters. The amount of data to be processed and/or displayed can be reduced, without loss of any associated information content in a displayed map.

  • Publication number: 20230332941
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for computing an object's weight or the quantity of items within the object based on activations of different robot actuators used in retrieving the object from a storage location. Specifically, the robot may activate one or more actuators during retrieval of an object, may obtain a measurement in response to activating a particular actuator, and may derive a weight of the object based on the measurement by converting the measurement from a first range of values that are associated with activations of the particular actuator to a second range of values that are disassociated with activations of the particular actuator. The robot may then modify its operation in response to the weight that is derived for the object matching or being mismatched to an expected or last tracked weight.

  • Publication number: 20230331484
    Abstract: Disclosed is a robot for performing three-dimensional (ā€œ3Dā€) or multi-plane sortation and/or order fulfillment. The robot may include a motorized base to move about a first plane, a lift that raises and lowers a dispensing receptacle atop the lift about a second plane, and one or more actuators that modify a position of the dispensing receptacle from an upright position to a first tilted position in which the dispensing receptacle is tilted towards a first side of the robot and to a second tilted position in which the dispensing receptacle is tilted towards an opposite second side of the robot. The robot may receive and carry items when the dispensing receptacle is in the upright position, and may dispense the items to a destination on either side of the robot by tilting the dispensing receptacle to the first tilted position or the second tilted position.

  • Publication number: 20230310162
    Abstract: A surgical component, a kit including the surgical component, and a surgical method. The surgical component includes a body portion. The surgical component also includes an elongate stem for inserting into an intramedullary canal of a patient. The elongate stem extends distally from the body portion. The elongate stem has a longitudinal axis; a proximal end; a distal end; and a plurality of splines located on an outer surface of the stem. The splines are circumferentially arranged around the stem. At least some of the splines are tapered such that each tapered spline is narrower at a distal part of that spline than at a part of that spline that is proximal with respect to the distal part. The surgical component further includes an elongate neck portion extending from the body portion at a non-zero angle with respect to the longitudinal axis of the stem.

  • Publication number: 20230306416
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to methods, apparatuses, computer readable media and systems for providing, along with a token, a token assurance level and data used to generate the token assurance level. At the time a token is issued, one or more Identification and Verification (ID&V) methods may be performed to ensure that the token is replacing a PAN that was legitimately used by a token requestor. A token assurance level may be assigned to a given token in light of the type of ID&V that is performed and the entity performing the ID&V. Different ID&Vs may result in different token assurance levels. An issuer may wish to know the level of assurance and the data used in generating the level of assurance associated with a token prior to authorizing a payment transaction that uses the token.

  • Publication number: 20230235398
    Abstract: A method for determining a subject's risk for developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) combined with determining a subject's pharmacogenomic (PGX) profile is described. The method involves obtaining a sample of genetic material from the subject. The genetic material is amplified using primers specific for the genes underlying CKD and PGX. The DNA sequence of the amplified genetic material is determined and compared with the human reference genome sequence. One or more DNA sequence alterations in the amplified genetic material not present in the human reference genome sequence determines the PGX profile of the subject and may indicate that the subject is at risk for developing CKD.
