  • Patent number: 11173606
    Abstract: In response to a first condition in a first subsystem of a robot, a controller halts operation of the first subsystem; transmits a set command specifying a first notification to an interface system; obtains status information from the interface system; and, in response to the status information indicating that the first notification has a cleared status, resumes operation of the first subsystem. The interface system maintains a set of active notifications and tracks a set of devices configured to receive notifications. Each of the devices is associated with a respective operator. In response to receiving the set command, the interface system: adds the first notification to the set of active notifications; determines a subset of devices to receive the first notification; wirelessly transmits the first notification to the subset; and, in response to receiving a clear message specifying the first notification, sets the first notification to the cleared status.

  • Publication number: 20210338334
    Abstract: Systems and methods for optimizing parameters of an orthopaedic procedure for a particular patient, including parameters relating to the anatomic and biomechanic fit of an implant or implant system implanted into the patient's joint. These systems and methods may utilize patient-specific information gathered pre-operatively in conjunction with optimization algorithms to determine an optimal implant design and an optimal position and orientation for implantation of the implant into the particular patient's joint.

  • Publication number: 20210288415
    Abstract: A Reconfigurable, Flexible Multi-User (RFMU) electronically steered antenna (ESA) includes a top panel and a number of side panels that enable many contacts simultaneously with varying gain requirements from a single, in situ, installation. The top panel includes multiple subarrays and can communicate with flyover satellites, and the side panels can communicate with satellites flying past a side of the ESA. The top panel and the side panels can achieve a beam steering that covers a full or partial, variable gain, hemispheric field-of-view (FoV). The RFMU ESA terminal top and side panels are scalable using flexible modular building blocks. This enables increased contacts, increased gain or a combination thereof sized to meet desired performance.

  • Patent number: 10961032
    Abstract: A sealing element having a substantially right-angled exterior corner is formed from a preform. The preform is formed from a strip of sealing material including a first longitudinal side surface having a projection projecting therefrom and an oppositely arranged second longitudinal side surface having a notch formed therein. The notch is aligned with the projection with respect to the longitudinal direction of the strip. A first segment of the strip is formed to a first side of the projection and a second segment of the strip is formed to a second side of the projection. The projection forms the substantially right-angled exterior corner of the sealing element following a bending of the first segment perpendicular to the second segment.

  • Publication number: 20200366074
    Abstract: A mounting device (110) for an elongate flexible member extending through an aperture (102), comprising: an elongate body (130) having a longitudinal axis; an internal passageway passing through the elongate body (130) parallel to the longitudinal axis, for receipt of the elongate flexible member; a plurality of apertures (132) in the elongate body (130); an engagement member (136) in each apertures (132) and constrained to move along a displacement axis inclined to the longitudinal axis of the elongate body (130); a plurality of actuation members (142), each engaged with a respective engagement member (136), whereby displacement of the actuation member (142) in a first direction displaces the engagement members (136) outwardly to project beyond the periphery of the elongate body (130) and displacement of the actuations members (142) in a second, opposite direction displaces the engagement members (136) inwardly; and biasing means (182) biasing the actuation members (142) in the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10767475
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and program product to determine distribution of a plurality of components amongst a plurality of phases for a multi-component, multi-phase system including a multi-component, multi-phase fluid. A plurality of phase boundaries of the multi-component, multi-phase fluid and a vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) are determined based on a plurality of geophysical parameters associated with an oilfield and using one or more computer processors, including by determining hydrocarbon partitioning in a water phase, based in part on applying empirical equilibrium multi-phase mole fraction ratios (K-values) of the multi-component, multi-phase system that are functions of temperature and pressure only. In addition, an amount of at least one fluid component distributed in a plurality of phases of the multi-component, multi-phase system is predicted by solving a set of flash equations with the one or more computer processors based on the plurality of phase boundaries.

  • Publication number: 20200275976
    Abstract: A method for optimizing a knee arthroplasty surgical procedure includes receiving pre-operative data comprising (i) anatomical measurements of the patient, (ii) soft tissue measurements of the patient's anatomy, and (iii) implant parameters identifying an implant to be used in the knee arthroplasty surgical procedure. An equation set is selected from a plurality of pre-generated equation sets based on the pre-operative data. During the knee arthroplasty surgical procedure, patient-specific kinetic and kinematic response values are generated and displayed using an optimization process. The optimization process includes collecting intraoperative data from one or more surgical tools of a computer-assisted surgical system, and using the intraoperative data and the pre-operative data to solve the equation set, thereby yielding the patient-specific kinetic and kinematic response values. A visualization is then provided of the patient-specific kinetic and kinematic response values on the displays.

  • Publication number: 20200237385
    Abstract: Patient specific implant technology, in which an outline representation of a portion of an outer surface of a periphery of a bone volume is determined and the outline representation is used in operations related to implant matching. In addition, an instrument may be made to match a perimeter shape of a Patient Specific Knee Implant with features for locating holes in a distal femur such that posts or lugs in a femoral implant locate the femoral implant centered medial-laterally within an acceptable degree of precision to prevent overhang of either the side of the femoral implant over the perimeter of the distal femur bone resections. Further, a two-dimensional outline representation may be segmented into segments that correspond to resection cuts used in fitting an implant on a portion of a bone and operations related to implant matching may be performed based on the segments.
