  • Patent number: 10314750
    Abstract: A sliding arm mechanism for attaching to an arm of a wheelchair is provided herein. One concept of the present disclosure is directed to a sliding arm mechanism that includes a main portion having a top area, a bottom area, first and second opposing end areas, first and second opposing side areas and an inner cavity. The sliding arm mechanism also includes a slide rail, comprising a top side, a bottom side and an elongated aperture located between the top side and the bottom side, which is adapted to be housed within the inner cavity of the main portion. The bottom side of the slide rail is removably coupled to a top part of the arm of the wheelchair. The slide rail and the main portion are slidably coupled to allow the main portion to move laterally over the slide rail in a direction parallel to the top part of the arm of the wheelchair, thus allowing the main portion to move between a first position and a second position.

  • Patent number: 10262102
    Abstract: Genomic references are structured as a reference graph that represents diploid genotypes in organisms. A path through a series of connected nodes and edges represents a genetic sequence. Genetic variation within a diploid organism is represented by multiple paths through the reference graph. The graph may be transformed into a traversal graph in which a path represents a diploid genotype. Genetic analysis using the traversal graph allows an organism's diploid genotype to be elucidated, e.g., by mapping sequence reads to the reference graph and scoring paths in the traversal graph based on the mapping to determine the path through the traversal graph that best fits the sequence reads.

  • Publication number: 20180366157
    Abstract: A video storage apparatus is described which stores and provides access to a video sequence of images. The apparatus comprises an array of storage devices, each image in the sequence being stored on at least one of the storage devices in the array, or being distributed across the array of storage devices with each portion being independently reproducible. A driver is provided, the driver being operable to access the video sequence by reading images in time order from the array of storage devices, temporally adjacent ones of the images, or different portions of the same image, being read by the driver from different storage devices in the array. In this way, an array of independent drives can be used to store video and allow much faster access to the stored video than would be the case with a single drive, and in a way which is more robust to drive failure.
