  • Publication number: 20220165390
    Abstract: Examples described herein generally relate to a system and methods for providing a digital therapeutic for treatment of psychological aspects of an oncological condition. The digital therapeutic may generate a user interface on a user device. The user interface includes a fictional health care provider avatar and plurality of fictional patient avatars. Each fictional patient avatar associated with a distinct patient archetype. The digital therapeutic may output a prompt from the fictional health care provider avatar. The digital therapeutic may output an avatar response to the prompt from at least one selected avatar of the plurality of fictional patient avatars based on the distinct patient archetype associated with the selected avatar. The digital therapeutic may receive, from the patient, a patient response to the prompt. The digital therapeutic may select a subsequent prompt or avatar response to output based on the patient response to the prompt.

  • Publication number: 20220165397
    Abstract: Examples described herein generally relate to a system and methods for registering a user with an online service. An application server receives, from a health care provider, first patient identifying information and second patient identifying information for a new account. The server transmits a message to the patient based on the second patient identifying information, the message including a unique access code for the patient. The server receives, from a client application via a secure link, a user access code and user identifying information. The server verifies that the user access code matches the unique access code and the user identifying information matches the first patient identifying information. The server requests, in response to the verifying, a new username and password via the client application. The server associates the new username and password with the new account, the online service, the first and second patient identifying information.

  • Patent number: 9532879
    Abstract: A modular knee prosthesis system includes a femoral component having a stem, a plurality of different sizes of sleeves mountable on the stem, and a plurality of different sizes of augments mountable on the femoral component. The system is modular, and provides the surgeon with the option of distally offsetting the joint line by selecting the size of sleeve that will provide the desired joint line. The different sizes of sleeves have different axial lengths but share a common geometry along a substantial part of their lengths so that the same bone cavity will accept multiple sizes of sleeves.

  • Patent number: 9295483
    Abstract: A patella drill guide includes a base portion rotatably mounted on a bone-gripping component. A trial portion with a contoured articulation surface is above the base portion. The base portion and trial portion have aligned drill guide bores. The base portion and trial portion can be rotated together on the bone-gripping component to optimize the positions of the drill guide bores with respect to the patella surface, thereby optimizing the locations of the mounting pegs of the patella implant component on the patella to optimize the orientation of the patella implant component. The base and the bone-gripping component may be unitary so that the entire assembly rotates on the patella about the central longitudinal axis of the bone-gripping component.

  • Patent number: 9096334
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for capping and sealing a vial with a cap assembly including a deformable annular seal, e.g., a ferrule, is disclosed. The apparatus comprises a base for holding the vial, a pressure applying platen, plural sealing rollers and associated electronic circuitry and motors. The platen is arranged to be moved relative to the base, whereupon it engages and applies a force to the cap assembly. The load cell measures the force applied and provides a signal indicative thereof to the electronic circuitry. The electronic circuitry determines when a desired amount of force has been applied to control the operation of the rollers, whereupon the rollers apply a force to the annular seal to permanently crimp the annular seal on the vial.

  • Patent number: 8998912
    Abstract: A patella drill guide includes a base with a flat patella bone-facing surface, a drill guide bore extending through the base, a cantilever spring member and a bone-gripping member. The cantilever spring member biases the bone-gripping member and the flat patella bone-facing surface toward each other. Flexing the cantilever spring member moves the bone-gripping member away from the flat patella bone-facing surface so that the drill guide can be placed on the patella. When the cantilever spring member is released, the patella is clamped between the bone-gripping member and the flat patella bone-facing surface. The drill guide may have sizing indicia and may be part of a kit including trial components to be mounted to the drill guide.
