  • Patent number: 10300298
    Abstract: Phototherapy systems comprising a therapeutic lamp platform for radiant lamps such as LEDs disposed in an assembly including a reflective surface facing towards a patient and a plurality of light apertures substantially aligned with the LEDs for communicating lamp radiation from the lamps to a user. The lamps and associated circuitry are disposed so that the reflective surface is relatively smooth and seamless towards the patient. The walls have a malleable rigidity for flexible adjustability relative to the user, and the device is mounted to the user with a frame.

  • Patent number: 10286224
    Abstract: Phototherapy systems comprising a therapeutic lamp platform for radiant lamps such as LEDs disposed in an assembly comprising a first wall to which the lamps are affixed thereto and a second wall, closer to the patient, spaced from the first wall wherein the lamps are recessed relative thereto. The second wall comprises a reflective surface facing towards a patient and a plurality of light apertures substantially aligned with the LEDs on the first wall for communicating lamp radiation from the lamps to a user. The lamps and associated circuitry are disposed between the first and second wall so that the reflective surface is relatively smooth and seamless towards the patient. The walls have a malleable rigidity for flexible adjustability relative to the user. The device is mounted to the user with a frame comprising an eyeglass frame or goggles including lenses for shielding the user's eyes from lamp radiation.

  • Publication number: 20190122221
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for authenticating mobile payments from a customer account to a merchant. The systems and methods may include a financial service provider receiving a request to authorize an electronic transaction at a point-of-sale. A financial service provider server computer may verify that the customer is present at the point-of-sale using received location data. An image having distorted text such as a captcha may be transmitted to a device at the point-of-sale, and the customer may read the captcha aloud. A voice sample of the customer may be sent to the financial service provider for comparison to stored voice recordings, to verify that the customer's voice sample is authentic if the voice matches a previously generated voice recording for the account. If the voice sample is authentic, the financial service provider may authorize the mobile payment.

  • Publication number: 20190080316
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments include methods and systems for providing payment token transactions by a mobile device. The mobile device may be operable to obtain a payment token, where the payment token is associated with one or more payment token parameters and the mobile device may be configured to communicate with a financial service provider system over a first network when connectivity to the first network is available to the mobile device. The mobile device may provide the payment token to a contactless payment terminal (CPT) associated with a merchant, during a purchase transaction involving a product provided by the merchant, where the mobile device may communicate the payment token to the CPT over a local network that is different from the first network such that connectivity between the mobile device and the first network is not required.

  • Publication number: 20180189780
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments include methods, systems, and computer-readable media configured to provide wearable devices storing tokens associated with digital versions of physical documents/cards. The wearable devices may further transfer tokens securely to interested parties without Bluetooth® or other network connectivity beyond NFC radio. In some embodiments, a token vault operator system may receive a request to establish a token vault account for a user, authenticate an identity of the user based at least on the received request, and generating a token vault ID associated with the user. The token vault operator system may further configure access to data sets generated for and associated with the token vault ID, generate tokens associated with the token vault ID, each token corresponding to one of the one or more data sets, and provide the generated plurality of tokens associated with the token vault ID to at least one user device.

  • Publication number: 20180183804
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for managing electronic tokens for device interactions. In some embodiments, a unified graphical user interface is provided for an account, for controlling the activation status and settings associated with authorized electronic devices used for conducting transactions on the account. The electronic devices may be programmed with an electronic token that allows a server to look up sensitive account information, although the electronic token does not divulge the account information itself. Therefore, if an electronic token is compromised or stolen, the account does not need to be closed, and sensitive information remains safe. Moreover, the unified graphical user interface provides detailed and highly customizable controls for settings and restrictions associated with each of the electronic tokens, without modifying or accessing sensitive account or personal information.
