  • Publication number: 20220257266
    Abstract: An intracranial access device includes a housing having an operator-facing side and a patient-facing side and an opening therethrough extending from the operator-facing side to the patient-facing side. The device further includes at least one fastener configured to secure the device to a cranium of a patient. The device further includes a drill mounted to a surface of the housing and a cauterizer. The device may further include a number of sensors arranged on the patient-facing side of the housing and configured to identify a hemorrhage location.

  • Patent number: 10646966
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, and methods for object recognition and presentation are provided. An example apparatus may include a camera, an assistance feedback device, an input device, and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry may be configured receive an image from the camera, compare characteristic features within the image to an object identification dataset to identify object matches for a plurality of objects within the image, receive a selected name of an identified object from the user via the input device, and transmit assistance feedback to the user indicating a position of the selected object within the field of view via the assistance feedback device.

  • Patent number: 10013599
    Abstract: An apparatus for improving performance of a retinal implant may include processing circuitry. The processing circuitry may be configured to receive image data corresponding to a camera field of view, determine whether a particular object is detected within the camera field of view, perform image data processing to enable a representation of a portion of the image data corresponding to an implant field of view to be provided on a retinal implant where the implant field of view is smaller than the camera field of view, and, responsive to the particular object being located outside the implant field of view, provide a directional indicator in the implant field of view to indicate a location of the particular object relative to the implant field of view.
