  • Publication number: 20210251669
    Abstract: A method for coupling a prosthesis to a spinal segment in a patient includes the steps of selecting first and second reference points disposed along the spinal segment and pre-operatively measuring a target distance. The target distance extends between the first and second reference points while the patient is in a preferred posture such as the standing position. A prosthesis is coupled to the spinal segment and the prosthesis is then intra-operatively adjusted in order to set the distance between the first and second reference points based on the target distance.

  • Publication number: 20210007783
    Abstract: A system for restricting spinal flexion includes a compliance member having a body and an elongation limit. The body typically comprises a spring or other tension element which provides elastic constraint to the spinal segment when the compliance member is attached to the spinous processes. The elongation limit prevents overextension of the compliance member, thus reducing the likelihood that the patient will experience over flexion of the spinal segment and reducing the risk of placing excessive mechanical load on the compliance member.

  • Publication number: 20200383045
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Wireless stations (STAs) may be within the coverage areas of several of access points (APs). In such cases, STAs may detect some set of candidate APs for possible connection, and the STAs may perform some selection procedure to select an AP for connection. For example, a STA may score or rank available APs (e.g., APs within the set of candidate APs), and the STA may sort the candidate APs into different bins (e.g., categories) based on their respective scores (e.g., based on each AP's candidate score). Each bin may thus include one or more APs associated with some scoring range. A STA may then randomly (e.g., or pseudo-randomly) select an AP from the bin associated with a highest range of candidate scores, and the STA may connect to the selected AP.

  • Publication number: 20200246621
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a dual-action catheter. In one example, a dual-action catheter system comprises a catheter including a catheter lumen, a bioelectric neuromodulation stylet of a diameter smaller than the lumen of the catheter for insertion of the bioelectric neuromodulation stylet within the catheter lumen, one or more electrodes positioned at a tip end of the bioelectric neuromodulation stylet, and a delivery pathway for delivery of pharmacological treatments therethrough while the bioelectric neuromodulation stylet is inserted within the catheter lumen.

  • Publication number: 20200227161
    Abstract: In general, this disclosure describes techniques for a health management system that schedules medical appointments based on a dialog with a user (e.g., a patient), clinical guideline information, and/or other information. The health management system may engage in a dialog with the user, the dialog including requests from the health management system for audio input to the user device and audio input from the user in response to each request. The health management system may extract information from the audio input and compare the extracted information to clinical guideline information to determine one or more probable health conditions of the user. The health management system may determine a time allotment, identify a health care provider type and a platform for a medical appointment based on the one or more probable health conditions.

  • Publication number: 20200218253
    Abstract: A hybrid control system includes a control agent and a control engine. The control engine is configured to install a master plan to the control agent. The master plan includes a plurality of high-level tasks. The control agent is configured to operate according to the master plan to, for each high-level task of the high-level tasks, obtain one or more low-level controls and to perform the one or more low-level controls to realize the high-level task. The control agent is configured to operate according to the master plan to transition between the plurality of high-level tasks thereby causing a seamless transition between operating at least partially autonomously and operating at least partially based on input from the tele-operator, based at least on context for the control agent, to operate at least partially autonomously and at least partially based on input from the tele-operator during execution of the master plan.

  • Publication number: 20200121371
    Abstract: A spinal treatment system includes a constraint device having an upper tether portion, a lower tether portion and a compliance member coupled therebetween. The upper tether portion is coupled with a superior spinous process of a spinal segment in a patient and the lower tether portion is coupled with an inferior spinous process or sacrum of the spinal segment. The length or tension in the constraint device is adjustable so that the construct of the tether portions and the compliance member provides a force resistant to flexion of the spinal segment. The system also includes a first prosthesis coupled with the spinal segment, wherein the constraint device modulates loads borne by the prosthesis or by tissue adjacent thereto.

  • Publication number: 20190357947
    Abstract: A spinal implant for limiting flexion of the spine includes a tether structure for encircling adjacent spinal processes. Usually, a pair of compliance members will be provided as part of the tether structure for elastically limiting flexion while permitting an extension. A cross-member is provided between the compliance member or other portions of the tether structure to stabilize the tether structure and prevent misalignment after implantation.

  • Publication number: 20190266514
    Abstract: A system comprises one or more observation stations. Each observation station of the one or more observation stations comprises a corresponding set of one or more sensors. Additionally, the system comprises one or more physical machines that implement a computation engine configured to receive first observation data from the one or more observation stations. The computation engine may use the first observation data to train a machine learning system. The computation engine may subsequently use the trained machine learning system to provide feedback regarding an additional instance of the observation subject. The computation engine outputs the feedback.
