  • Publication number: 20220185349
    Abstract: A system for controlling movement of a vehicle that includes a camera system mounted on the vehicle and configured to generate image signals of terrain within the vehicle path of movement of the vehicle, a radar system mounted on the vehicle and configured to generate distance signals to an object in the terrain, and a processor having multiple GPU rasters in a series data processing configuration that are configured to utilize a hypotenuse processing function for drawing lines from pixel to moving entity center (MEC) or from macro cell center to MEC, and a detector configured to test for raster frame lock between the multiple GPU rasters structured to determine a relative speed of the vehicle with respect to the object in the path of movement of the vehicle, and to generate control signals to alter the direction or speed of the vehicle or both to avoid the object.

  • Publication number: 20220165390
    Abstract: Examples described herein generally relate to a system and methods for providing a digital therapeutic for treatment of psychological aspects of an oncological condition. The digital therapeutic may generate a user interface on a user device. The user interface includes a fictional health care provider avatar and plurality of fictional patient avatars. Each fictional patient avatar associated with a distinct patient archetype. The digital therapeutic may output a prompt from the fictional health care provider avatar. The digital therapeutic may output an avatar response to the prompt from at least one selected avatar of the plurality of fictional patient avatars based on the distinct patient archetype associated with the selected avatar. The digital therapeutic may receive, from the patient, a patient response to the prompt. The digital therapeutic may select a subsequent prompt or avatar response to output based on the patient response to the prompt.

  • Publication number: 20220165397
    Abstract: Examples described herein generally relate to a system and methods for registering a user with an online service. An application server receives, from a health care provider, first patient identifying information and second patient identifying information for a new account. The server transmits a message to the patient based on the second patient identifying information, the message including a unique access code for the patient. The server receives, from a client application via a secure link, a user access code and user identifying information. The server verifies that the user access code matches the unique access code and the user identifying information matches the first patient identifying information. The server requests, in response to the verifying, a new username and password via the client application. The server associates the new username and password with the new account, the online service, the first and second patient identifying information.

  • Publication number: 20210331046
    Abstract: An iron-type golf club head includes a body having a wall extending about an opening, a faceplate coupled to the body across the opening, and a fill material. The wall defines a first set of apertures and a second aperture, and includes an outer peripheral surface, a sole and a rear wall portion extending from the heel to the toe. The wall and the faceplate define a rearward-facing back cavity. The sole, the rear wall portion and the faceplate define a lower cavity that is continuous with the back cavity. The first set of apertures and the second aperture extend through the wall from the peripheral outer surface to, and are continuous with, the lower cavity. The first set of apertures and the second aperture extend about first and second planes, respectively. The fill material substantially fills the lower cavity and the first set of apertures and the second aperture.

  • Publication number: 20210244491
    Abstract: Disclosed is a surgical drape configured to selectively allow or block a patient's view of the surgical field, as is desired in Caesarean section operations. Generally, the drape includes a main sheet, a substantially transparent sheet attached to the main sheet proximal the patient's head, and a substantially opaque screen attached to the patient-facing side of the substantially transparent sheet. This substantially opaque screen occludes the patient's visual access through the substantially transparent sheet but may be at least partially removed to permit the patient viewing access through the substantially transparent sheet towards the area of the surgery, without compromising the sterility of the surgical field. Desirably, the drape is provided with an adhesive strip disposed on the sheet or screen to permit reconnection to thereby again occlude the patient's view through the sheet.

  • Patent number: 10912621
    Abstract: A stockinette (200), suitable for covering an appendage (1440) of a patient, includes one or more folds (206). The fold (206) can be in a length of material (205) disposed between an open end (204) and a closed end (203). Alternatively, the fold (880) can be in an optional cuff (860) formed by a section of material (661) near the open end (603). Folds can be present both in the length of material (205) and in the cuff (860) as well. The cuff (860) can be disposed atop the fold (206) in the length of material (205). The stockinette (200) enables one person to apply the stockinette (200) to an appendage (1440) with one continuous motion that expands the folds.

  • Publication number: 20190151040
    Abstract: A drape (600) suitable for covering non-planar surfaces of equipment (1201) is provided. The drape (600) facilitates quick and efficient deployment while ensuring that a sterile field established by a drape portion (601) is not compromised. The drape (600) can include a drape wrapping layer (209) wrapped about a drape portion (601) that is formed initially with two abutting elongated accordion fold stacks (604,605). Non-sterile personnel (801) can handle the drape wrapping layer (209) to position the drape (600) along surfaces of the equipment (1201) without touching the sterile drape portion (601). Sterile personnel can then expand the abutting elongated accordion fold stacks (604,605) to drape the surfaces of the equipment (1201).
