  • Patent number: 10391313
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for developing new therapy options for patient suffering from neurological disorders. An example may include the use of a therapy patterning system that allows significant freedom to program therapy patterns using arbitrary shapes and functions. For such patterning to be implemented, a physician may identify a condition needing new and/or alternative therapy options, link the identified condition one or more therapy parameters, program, test and assess the therapy. The process may include multiple iterations to address an initial condition and then to mitigate side effects of the initial therapy. Some embodiments comprises devices configured to deliver combinations of therapy patterns to accomplish at least first and second therapeutic purposes.

  • Patent number: 10036610
    Abstract: A tool. A firearm, a blade and an ancillary device are disposed within or on the tool. The firearm comprises a barrel through which a bullet passes to exit the firearm, a firing pin moveable to a firing position by operation of a firing pin control, a firing pin lock retaining the firing pin in the firing position when in the locked position, a biasing member for applying a force to the firing pin with the firing pin restrained against the force by the locked position of the firing pin lock. A trigger releases the firing pin lock from the locked position, such that the force causes the firing pin to strike the charge proximate the bullet. The bullet then exits the barrel.

  • Publication number: 20170286762
    Abstract: A security camera and weapon system. The system comprises a camera for capturing images of an area and a display screen for displaying those images. A weapon is co-located with the camera and controllable by a user to fire a projectile. The weapon comprises primer contacts in contact with a projectile primer which is in contact with a propellant. The user controls application of a voltage to the primer contacts, thereby igniting the primer and the propellant and firing the projectile from a weapon barrel. The weapon is aimed and fired by the user from a system controller based on images captured by the camera and presented on the display screen, the images are overlaid with projectile aiming indicia.

  • Patent number: 8908840
    Abstract: A computing device may establish a communication session with a user equipment device (UE). The computing device may interact with the UE via interactive voice response (IVR) services and enable a first portion of the communication session to be recorded using a first recording mode. The computing device may out-dial a second portion of the communication session and enable a second portion of the communication session to be recorded using a second recording mode. A recording mode may include recording a portion of a communication session locally, streaming a portion of the communication session to a recording system, or out-dialing a portion of the communication session to enable a communication session tap to be placed on the out-dialed portion of the communication session.

  • Patent number: 8812579
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for transferring data among clients, recipients, and servers. In general, an apparatus is described for coordinating and modifying data being transferred from clients to destination servers and from destination servers to recipients. A proxy server modifies requests and responses from clients and destination servers, respectively, and ultimately communicates related responses to recipients according to one or more predefined rules pertaining to each client and destination server. In this way, requests may be communicated from clients to the appropriate destination servers such that the requests may be fulfilled by the destination servers, and responses may be communicated from the destination servers to the appropriate recipients. The load on potential destination servers, network conditions, and the content of the responses received may be considered and addressed by the proxy server, facilitating the transfer of data.

  • Patent number: 8787537
    Abstract: A method may include receiving, by a computing device, a communication session invitation from a user device and determining, by the computing device, whether a communication session, corresponding to the communication session invitation, is to be recorded. The method may also include, when the communication session is to be recorded, identifying, by the computing device, a record mode, corresponding to the communication session, from a group of record modes. The method may further include establishing, by the computing device, recording services corresponding to the record mode, and establishing, by the computing device, the communication session with the user device. The method may also include, when the communication session is not to be recorded, establishing, by the computing device, the communication session with the user device.
