  • Publication number: 20190298605
    Abstract: A method for mitigating an involuntary muscle movement in a patient by applying external vibration in multiple locations distributed about a periphery of an upper arm or forearm of the patient for an applied vibration duration that is less than the efficacy duration. Applied vibration duration as a percentage of efficacy duration is ideally less than 80%. A wearable device for performing the method has a flexible base for removably affixing to a patient's upper arm or forearm, a plurality of vibration generators, a power source, and a connected microcontroller configured to control the vibration generated by the vibration generators in accordance with a pulse frequency. The microcontroller is configured to connect to a remote controller via a communications interface. The vibration generators have a nominal vibration frequency different from the pulse frequency.

  • Publication number: 20190277224
    Abstract: Rocket tank liquid level determination, and associated systems and methods. A representative system includes a computer-readable medium having instructions that, when executed, receive an image corresponding to a view of the liquid in the rocket tank, identify an edge between the liquid and a wall of the tank, and, based on at least one of a size, shape, location, or orientation of the edge, estimate a level of the liquid in the tank. In addition to or in lieu of determining the liquid level, the system can determine a characteristic of a sloshing motion of the liquid in the tank, and, based at least on the characteristic of the sloshing motion, direct operation of a forcing element that imparts a force to the rocket to at least partially counteract a force placed on the rocket by the sloshing motion of the liquid in the tank.
