  • Publication number: 20200066404
    Abstract: A method of calibrating a monitoring device to generate calibrated vital sign data using a calibration device includes positioning the monitoring device in a first position on a patient, generating vital sign data with a sensing assembly of the positioned monitoring device, and processing the vital sign data with the calibration device to determine if the vital sign data is calibrated vital sign data or uncalibrated vital sign data. The method also includes generating a calibrated data signal if the vital sign data is calibrated vital sign data, generating a reposition signal if the vital sign data is uncalibrated vital sign data, and repositioning the monitoring device on the patient until the calibrated data signal is generated.

  • Patent number: 10568759
    Abstract: Systems for treating a subject's tissue can include a thermally conductive cup, a tissue-receiving cavity, and a vacuum port. The vacuum port is in fluid communication with the tissue-receiving cavity to provide a vacuum for drawing the submental tissue, or other targeted tissue, into the tissue-receiving cavity. A thermal device can cool and/or heat the conductive cup such that the conductive cup non-invasively controls the temperature of subcutaneous lipid-rich cells in the tissue. A restraint apparatus can hold a the conductive cup in thermal contact with the target region.

  • Patent number: 10537022
    Abstract: A flexible electronic system includes a flexible electronic substrate having a first and second contact pads opposed to each other, one of the first and second contact pads is electrically coupled to a battery. A protective cover is disposed on the flexible electronic substrate. The flexible electronic system further includes a base support fixedly attached to the flexible electronic substrate, the base support having an adhesive surface opposed to the flexible electronic substrate, and a foil having a first portion removably coupled to at least a portion of the adhesive surface and a second portion, wherein the foil configures to permit a removal of the second portion disposed between the first and second contact pads and wherein the removal of the second portion activates the system.

  • Patent number: 10413803
    Abstract: A method of displaying a video sequence of a scene captured using a video capture device, the video sequence having a limited field of view of the scene. A plurality of objects positioned in the scene outside limits of the field of view of the captured video sequence is determined. A representation of at least one of the objects is generated, a characteristic of the generated representation being determined from an object impact measure defining, at least in part, a confidence that the at least one object will enter the field of view. The generated object representation is displayed together with, and proximate to, a display of the captured video sequence.

  • Publication number: 20190274553
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a blood pressure monitoring system includes activating a reference monitor to perform a reference measurement of the blood pressure of a user as part of a calibration process. A wearable sensing device is activated to detect a parameter of user that is correlatable to the user's blood pressure. A processor of the user interface device processes the at least one parameter detected by the wearable blood pressure sensing device with reference to the reference measurement to determine a correlation factor that correlates the at least one parameter detected by the wearable blood pressure sensing device to the blood pressure of the user. The reference measurement includes an inflation phase, a measurement phase and a deflation phase. The processor is configured to only use the at least one parameter detected by the wearable blood pressure sensing device during the measurement phase in determining the correlation factor.

  • Publication number: 20180310950
    Abstract: Systems for treating a subject's tissue can include a thermally conductive cup with vacuum features configured to facilitate removal of air located between the cup and the subject's skin. The vacuum features can extend along cup to provide airflow paths to a vacuum port. The applicator can cool and/or heat the retained tissue to affect targeted tissue. After the treat period, the vacuum can be reduced or stop and the applicator can be removed from the subject.

  • Publication number: 20170224050
    Abstract: An insert to be used with footwear is provided. In one implementation, the insert includes a structural member that has a first surface and a second surface opposite the first surface. The first surface is shaped to correspond with contours of a user foot. The second surface is adapted to rest on substantially planar surface. The insert includes a recessed cavity defining an opening from the first surface to the second surface of the structural member. The recessed cavity is shaped to stabilize a region of the user foot placed within the opening. An intermediate layer is attached to the structural member in a mating relationship with respect to the first surface. This foam layer is adapted to distribute a determined amount of foot pressure from the user foot with respect to the structural member.
