  • Publication number: 20200060512
    Abstract: A surgical instrument navigation system is provided that visually simulates a virtual volumetric scene of a body cavity of a patient from a point of view of a surgical instrument residing in the cavity of the patient. The surgical instrument navigation system includes: a surgical instrument; an imaging device which is operable to capture scan data representative of an internal region of interest within a given patient; a tracking subsystem that employs electro-magnetic sensing to capture in real-time position data indicative of the position of the surgical instrument; a data processor which is operable to render a volumetric, perspective image of the internal region of interest from a point of view of the surgical instrument; and a display which is operable to display the volumetric perspective image of the patient.

  • Patent number: 10481929
    Abstract: A distributed execution environment can provide access to field-programmable device resources. The field-programmable device resources can be provided in association with one or more instances that are instantiated within the distributed execution environment upon request from a computing system. The computing system can be associated with a customer of the distributed execution environment. The customer can program the field-programmable device resources using designs created by or for the customer.

  • Patent number: 8292110
    Abstract: Dual-mode container assemblies (30, 110) are provided which include an open-top container (32, 112) with a closure assembly (34, 114) having a skirt (36, 116) and a reversible lid (38, 118) presenting first and second opposed faces (82, 84, 160, 162) hingedly coupled to the skirt (36, 116). In the child-resistant configuration of the assemblies (30, 110), the lid (38, 118) is latched to the skirt (36, 116) by a latching arrangement (60, 100, 136, 177). In order to convert the container assemblies (30, 110) to an adult configuration, the lid (38, 118) is opened and rotated 180° while the lid (38, 118) remains connected to the skirt (36, 116). This reverses the lid face adjacent the open top of the container (32, 112). Closure of the reversed lid (38, 118) occurs without any latching function between the skirt (36, 116) and the lid (38, 118), so that the lid (38, 118) can be readily opened.

  • Publication number: 20110126422
    Abstract: A footwear sole assembly with at least one compressible protruding element extending downwardly beyond the bottom surface of the outsole, the at least one protruding element providing a natural instability to a wearer when the sole assembly initially contacts a supporting surface. The at least one protruding element is a three-dimensional structure formed of a substantially solid elastomeric material. In another embodiment, the at least one protruding element may also protrude upwardly beyond the sole assembly in such a manner that the wearer's foot can apply pressure to the top portion of said at least one protruding element.

  • Patent number: 7816311
    Abstract: A cleansing bar includes a surfactant-containing body, which includes a top surface, a bottom surface that is substantially opposite to the top surface, first and second ends, and first and second sides extending horizontally and meeting at the first and second ends to together define a perimeter around the cleansing bar between the top and bottom surfaces. A first horizontally-extending groove is formed in at least the first side surface. According to one embodiment, the first horizontally-extending groove extends only partially between the first and second ends. A second horizontally-extending groove is formed in the second side surface, and also extends only partially between the first and second ends. According to another embodiment, the first horizontally-extending groove is further formed around the first and second ends and in the second side surface to encircle the cleansing bar.

  • Patent number: 7063229
    Abstract: The present invention is a container for dispensing two foods simultaneously, such as for example a beverage, such as milk, and a particulate food, such as cereal. The container has an outer cup, an inner cup that fits in the outer cup forming a space between the two and a lid to close the outer cup and hold the inner cup in the outer cup. The outer cup is adapted to hold a beverage in the space between the outer cup and the inner cup. The inner cup is adapted to hold a food product. The outer cup is ergonomically shaped to fit well in a user's hands. The inner cup has a plurality of walls to facilitate the flow of food from the inner cup. The walls define a cavity that is generally v-shaped having a discharge side which is narrower than the opposite side of the cavity. The lid of the preferred embodiment has a raised rim with a small discharge opening in fluid communication with the space between the inner and outer cups. The raised rim has a slope with the highest point being at the discharge opening.
