  • Publication number: 20160262796
    Abstract: An extended sole and heel care device with strengthened extended handles to be held in each hand and pulled back and forth in a see-saw motion across the sole or heel of the foot to be used for cleaning, removing dry or calloused skin, or to apply lotions and oils. Centered between the structured ends is a flexible tool holding area where different skin care tools can be placed. The strengthened extended handles allow the tool holding area to drape behind the rear heel at an angle that allows for ease in abrading or cleaning the heel. An abrasive strip can be placed in tool area for rougher skin treatments like callus removal on the sole of the foot, or a soft absorbent pad can be attached for easy lotion application at the rear of the heel.

  • Publication number: 20160019066
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer program product for executing divergent threads using a convergence barrier are disclosed. A first instruction in a program is executed by a plurality of threads, where the first instruction, when executed by a particular thread, indicates to a scheduler unit that the thread participates in a convergence barrier. A first path through the program is executed by a first divergent portion of the participating threads and a second path through the program is executed by a second divergent portion of the participating threads. The first divergent portion of the participating threads executes a second instruction in the program and transitions to a blocked state at the convergence barrier. The scheduler unit determines that all of the participating threads are synchronized at the convergence barrier and the convergence barrier is cleared.

  • Patent number: 9144294
    Abstract: An attachment system principally use on garment (10, 30) provides a number of aligned loops (15) on the garment and a number of aligned loops (24) on a load such as an equipment pack (17). The load also includes an elongate securing member that extends from the load with a flexible proximal portion (26) and a stiffened distal portion (27). The stiffened distal portion (27) can be very readily threaded through successive ensemble loops (15) and load loops (24) to pull the flexible proximal portion (26) through the loops (15, 24) to attach the load (17) to the garment (10, 30). The stiffened distal portion (27) is then fed back through the loops (15, 24) to provide a geometric lock that prevents the load (17, 18) detaching from the garment (10, 30). Various loads can be attached in this way.

  • Publication number: 20150073605
    Abstract: A handheld controller interface device that receives communications from one or more components of an HVAC system. The controller interface device is removably secured to an enclosure of the HVAC system. When not being engaged by a user, the controller user interface may be secured within the enclosure in a mounted position. When the HVAC system is being serviced, the controller user interface may be removed from the enclosure so as to be in an unmounted position. Further, when in the unmounted position, the controller interface device still at least receives communications from one or more components of the HVAC system, including, for example, a controller.

  • Publication number: 20140247334
    Abstract: A video monitoring system captures image frames of a patient in various positions. The captured image frames are analyzed by the system for changes in a patient's position or movement, frames in which the system detects one or both of patient movement and repositioning are retained. The system analyzes an area of interest within each image frame that corresponds to an area in the camera's view field with the patient. Sequential image frames are compared for motion, only frames without motion, where the patient is still, are analyzed.

  • Patent number: 8677106
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention sets forth a mechanism for managing thread divergence in a thread group executing a multithreaded processor. A unanimous branch instruction, when executed, causes all the active threads in the thread group to branch only when each thread in the thread group agrees to take the branch. In such a manner, thread divergence is eliminated. A branch-any instruction, when executed, causes all the active threads in the thread group to branch when at least one thread in the thread group agrees to take the branch.

  • Patent number: 8615541
    Abstract: The invention set forth herein describes a mechanism for efficiently performing extended precision operations on multi-word source operands. Corresponding data words of the source operands are processed together via each instruction of a cascading sequence of instructions. State information generated when each instruction is processed is stored in condition code flags. The state information is optionally used in the processing of subsequent instructions in the sequence and/or accumulated with previously set state information.

  • Patent number: 8490890
    Abstract: A bathing apparatus includes an in-line mixing unit and a hand operated injecting unit. The mixing unit is coupled between a water supply pipe and a water dispensing device, such as a showerhead and is in fluid communication with the hand operated injection unit. The injection unit, upon user demand, draws a controllable predetermined quantity of bathing fluid from a standard off the shelf purchased bottle of bathing fluid, such as a bottle of bath oil, and then ejects, upon user demand and in a hands free operation, the drawn bathing fluid, at a user selected flow rate. The ejected bathing fluid passes to the mixing unit which causes the ejected bathing fluid to be mixed within a stream of water being delivered to the water dispensing device.

  • Publication number: 20130108995
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to monitor a user body position and/or influence a user to change and improve body position, without causing the user to wake up. A personal audio output communicator is adapted to be positioned in close proximity to an ear of the user. A motion detector is adapted to attach to the user for generating a motion signal. A stimulus provider is adapted to receive the motion signal from the motion detector and to compare a motion signal value representative of the motion signal to a preset motion value. In response to the comparison, the stimulus provider transmits a user-selected stimulus and/or voice command stimulus to the personal audio output communicator.
