  • Publication number: 20200384261
    Abstract: A medical device system for delivering a neuromodulation therapy includes a delivery tool for deploying an implantable medical device at a neuromodulation therapy site. The implantable medical device includes a housing, an electronic circuit within the housing, and an electrical lead comprising a lead body extending between a proximal end coupled to the housing and a distal end extending away from the housing and at least one electrode carried by the lead body. The delivery tool includes a first cavity for receiving the housing and a second cavity for receiving the lead. The first cavity and the second cavity are in direct communication for receiving and deploying the housing and the lead coupled to the housing concomitantly as a single unit.

  • Publication number: 20190260735
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided, in a communication device associated with a first computing device, for capturing security data exchanged between the first computing device and a second computing device. The mechanisms receive a data message from either the first computing device or the second computing device. The data message is part of an operation for establishing a secure communication connection between the first computing device and the second computing device. The mechanisms filter the received data message for security data passed in the received data message and mirror the security data to an analysis port of the communication device. Moreover, the mechanisms output, via the analysis port, the security data to a data collection and analysis system that analyzes the security data with regard to security requirement compliance.

  • Patent number: 9430092
    Abstract: An optical scanner is configured to scan multiple print portions of a body part such as a finger. The optical scanner identifies a first one of the print portions in an area of an optical surface. An event such as launching an application is generated based on identifying the first print portion in the area of the optical surface. In addition, various events can be generated based on different combinations of print portions in different areas of the optical surface. In a second embodiment, a property detector is configured to identify different properties of a sleeve in different areas of a surface. An event is generated based on the detection of a property of the sleeve in an area of the surface.

  • Patent number: 9092125
    Abstract: A simple exemplary embodiment can leverage the ability of the touchscreen or touchpad device to distinguish between a fingernail and a palm-side fingertip press as binary distinctions. This can be done via long nails or alternatively, by rotating a hand to invert the finger. The binary distinction can be used to perform different functions. For example, a fingertip press could be the functional equivalent of a left-click on a mouse, and a fingernail press could be the equivalent of a right-click. Another example using a simply binary distinction could be that a fingertip press while typing will result in lower case, and fingernail press while typing will result in upper case. Another example, using a binary distinction, would interpret a light touch for right-clicks or upper case characters and a heavy touch for left-clicks or lower case characters.

  • Patent number: 8760429
    Abstract: An optical scanner scans a first portion of a print of a body part such as a finger in a first area of an optical surface. The optical scanner detects a motion of the body part to a second area of the optical surface. This can be done in various ways. One way is for the optical scanner to detect a sliding motion of the body part to determine if most of the first portion of the print is in the second area. Another way is for the optical scanner to determine a rolling motion of the print based on a continuity of the print from the first area to the second area. A similar system and method is disclosed which detects a rolling motion of a body part by using a sleeve with multiple properties.

  • Publication number: 20110248946
    Abstract: Aspects are directed toward an active prosthetic that includes, for example, an LED, RF transponder, or comparable electrical, optical, and/or electromagnetic componentry that allows the characteristics of the prosthetic to be changed. These characteristics then can be correlated to different modes of operation when used with a corresponding input device. Other aspects are directed toward utilizing prosthetics with different shapes to affect different modes of behavior and input with an input device, such as a touchscreen or touchpad. Even further aspects are directed toward providing handicapped individuals with increased dexterity by providing a prosthetic that allows different modes of behavior when used with an associated input device.
