  • Patent number: 11818622
    Abstract: Systems and methods according to aspects of the invention verify requests for information over a network. Computing devices communicating over a network transmit numerous signals with various types of information including spatial information, temporal information, device-specific information, and transmission specific information. This information may be used to generate statistical records of valid request for information. Various combinations of these signals may be used to determine whether a request for information is a valid request based on the statistical records associated with the signals. Where a request for information has been verified, the system and method may provide the information. Where the request for information has not been verified, the system and method may deny the request for information. Thus the system and method may be used to prevent and block scraping and spamming attacks.

  • Publication number: 20230172482
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to the standardization of prestrain applied to a sensor of an external respiratory measurement device. The method may comprise sandwiching the sensor between two adhesive layers and stretching the sensor by a fixed amount in order to match the length of the device to the length of a support layer. The device may then be covered by the support layer in order to keep the sensor in a state of prestrain, such that the length of the device matches the length of the support layer. The device may then be applied to the surface by the lower adhesive layer, and the support layer may then be removed, thus leaving the sensor in a standardized and optimal state of prestrain.

  • Publication number: 20220245118
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to enhancement or refinement of estimated locations based upon user-specific information. Upon user authorization, geographical information is extracted from a number of user-related sources, including the web browser history, search history, maps history, address book, e-mail archives and calendar entries. Such information is used to build a spatial index of specific physical locations for a geocoded result set. From this, heat maps identifying particular locations from the user-related sources are created for different periods of time. The heat maps may be used to refine an initial location estimate of the user. This may be done by determining whether one or more positions in a given heat map provide a more accurate position of the user than the initial estimate. If so, a best position is selected. This can be used to provide enhanced driving directions to the user.

  • Publication number: 20210267554
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to the measurement of a baseline respiratory level in a patient so that changes in respiratory activity can be easily reported. The baseline measurement is collected by a sensor in the patient's chest and a sensor on the patient's abdomen, and is transmitted to a computing device. The computing device measures normal breathing for 60 seconds and uses the waveform collected over this period of time to generate a baseline RR, tidal volume, and minute ventilation. From this point, the patient's RR, tidal volume, and minute ventilation are recorded and compared to the baseline measurements, and if a change from the baseline measurement that exceeds a predetermined threshold is detected, the doctor is alerted that action must be taken for the patient's safety.
