  • Patent number: 11003628
    Abstract: A variable driven, customizable data management system creates a descendent child module controllable by parameters set through action of a precedently operated architecture input module. Customizable child modules are expediently creatable to enable management of complex and disparate data sets per the requirements of particular end-users. Source files of varying file-types are determinable over network and data is extractable and pulled to populate a plurality of containers operative in the child module. Edits made to data displayed as part of the child module may be pushed over network to overwrite source files as amended. Complex data sets are thus collatable from disparate locations, over network, between partitions, even across platforms, whereby pulled data is rendered interactive for end-user control, despite local and root disunity, and displayed for interaction at a single instance.

  • Publication number: 20210085230
    Abstract: A syringe assembly includes (i) a syringe with a cylindrical body, luer tip at a first end, finger grip at a second end and a cannula extending from the luer tip into the cylindrical body, and (ii) a plunger unit having an adapter portion, receiving cavity, finger grip and piston. A channel extends the length of the adapter portion to receive the cannula in one end and a variety of connectors, valves and/or syringes in a second end. The end of the channel accessible in the receiving cavity mates with or engages any number of commercially available valves, connectors and/or syringes while the luer tip similarly connects to any number of valves, catheters, connectors, etc., depending on the task being undertaken with the syringe assembly.

  • Publication number: 20210006624
    Abstract: Broadly speaking, embodiments of the present techniques provide methods for activating functionality on a client device when the client device is determined by a sensor to be in a particular environment. Advantageously, the client device and sensor(s) do not communicate directly so there is no requirement for a trust relationship to be established therebetween, which may consume power, take time and may require user involvement. The functionality on the client device may instead be activated by a trusted server, and the trust relationship may be established when a user of the client device registers to use the system.

  • Publication number: 20200281528
    Abstract: A method for diagnosing a disease, disease state, or disease stage of a user is described herein. Goggles are providing having a radiation source, a radiation sensor, and a microcontroller. The goggle are assembled about a user's head. Optical data is collected from the user's eye, where the optical data includes at least two of the following: a) a wavefront of reflected radiation from the user's eye; b) a spectrum of reflected radiation from the user' eye; and c) one or more wavelengths of reflected to radiation from the user's eye. A statistical match between the user's optical data and a historical user's optical data is determined. A diagnoses of a disease, disease state, or disease stage of the user is determined based on a diagnosed disease, disease state, or disease stage of the historical user.

  • Patent number: 10694995
    Abstract: A diagnostic eye goggle system is described herein. The diagnostic eye goggle system includes goggles having a radiation source, a radiation sensor, optical elements, and a microcontroller for acquiring optical data from a user's eye including, but not limited to, wavefront data, spectral data, and frequency-shifted wavelength data. An external master database stores historical user data from previous users of the diagnostic eye goggle system. A transceiver disposed in the goggles provides a datalink between the acquired optical data and the external master database. A diagnostic software module cross-correlates the acquired optical data with the historical data to provide a diagnosis of a disease state of the user. The goggles further provide lens-correcting instructions or suggestions to a user or health care provider based on the acquired wavefront data.

  • Patent number: 9834815
    Abstract: The present teachings generally relate to methods and kits incorporating a discriminating positive control for determining whether a particular microorganism or group of microorganisms are present in a sample, for example but not limited to a food, environmental, agricultural, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, or water sample. According to certain methods, at least part of a starting material, for example but not limited to, a food, environmental, agricultural, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, or water sample can be combined with a culture medium and incubated under conditions suitable for microbial growth followed by extracting microorganism and added control nucleic acids for analysis.

  • Patent number: 8364365
    Abstract: The method for controlling a safety system (102-108) of a vehicle (10) determines a reference velocity from a first front wheel sensor (20A) and a second front wheel speed signal from a second front wheel sensor (20B). An axle speed sensor (20C) may be used to determine an axle speed signal. A first rear speed signal and a second rear speed signal are determined from the reference velocity, a slip effect and a yaw signal. The yaw signal may be determined from a yaw rate sensor (28). Safety system (102-108) may be controlled in response to the first rear wheel speed signal and the second rear wheel speed signal.

  • Patent number: 7676307
    Abstract: A control system for a vehicle (10) is described for use in conjunction with the safety system (44) of the vehicle (10). A tire sensor or plurality of tire sensors generates tire force signals. The tire force signals may include lateral tire forces, longitudinal (or torque) tire forces, and normal tire forces. Based upon the tire force signals, a safety system (44) may be activated. The tire force sensors may be used to monitor various conditions including but not limited to sensing a roll condition, wheel lift detection, a trip event, oversteering and understeering conditions, pitch angle, bank angle, roll angle, and the position of the center of gravity of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20090094271
    Abstract: A method and system for the management and display of information in a graphical user interface (GUI). Key data fields are configured, including a primary key data field and secondary key data fields, which are associated with the primary key data field. The data fields are configured using configuration variables and the data fields are populated with data field values. Information is displayed to a user in the GUI that includes secondary key data field values in a skewable display tree. Selection of a database record, identified by the value of the primary key data field, through the display tree generates a display of additional data field values that are associated with the selected database record, including text boxes for editing data field values by the user. Searching and reporting functions on the data field values under the primary key data field can also be provided.
