  • Patent number: 10398908
    Abstract: A system and method for using a sonic wave to influence material in a target structure requires using a confined plasma antenna to generate an electromagnetic carrier wave, ?. The confined plasma antenna also pulses the carrier wave at a sonic frequency, f, to create a sonic wave. In detail, pulsing the carrier wave results in a sequential plurality of solitons which are separated from each other by a periodicity ?, wherein ?<<?. For the present invention, f is selected to resonate with a material (e.g. a cellular structure) in a target structure (e.g. a patient).

  • Patent number: 10076672
    Abstract: A methodology in accordance with the present invention is directed toward optimizing the operational parameters of a radiation unit which will be used in a protocol to influence a target tissue (cellular structure), in a predetermined manner. Specifically, digital root techniques are used for this purpose. To do this, the digital root is determined for a number that is characteristic of a cellular structure attribute that is to be influenced by radiation. This digital root is then expanded into the range of a selected operational parameter for the radiation unit. Thus, a number in the operational range of the radiation unit is selected to establish an appropriate radiation parameter for influencing the cellular structure.

  • Patent number: 10004661
    Abstract: A system and method for the present invention utilizes a generator, in combination with a radiation unit, to direct waveform energy towards a target tissue using a predetermined protocol directed by titration-like feedback. The effect of the waveform energy on cellular structures of the target tissue is periodically monitored, and the predetermined protocol is halted when the cellular structure has been transformed into a desired phenotype.

  • Patent number: 9877892
    Abstract: A system and method for directing vibrational oscillating sonic waves toward a target tissue in the body of a person, to thereby influence a phenotypic differentiation of the target tissue at a cellular level, requires the use of an epidermal or implantable patch. Mounted on the patch is a sonic generator for generating sonic energy that entrains cellular functions of the target tissue for a desired phenotypic response. Also included is a unit for titrating the target tissue to monitor for changes in an expression level of the target tissue resulting from phenotypic differentiation.

  • Publication number: 20170161798
    Abstract: Computer-based systems and methods are provided which combine subjective and objective evaluations of a specified product/service for use as a comprehensive assessment of the product/service. The subjective evaluation is made by polling the opinions of a selected plethora of competent commentators. These opinions are then tempered by personal profiles of the respective commentators to create subjectively informed comments. On the other hand, the objective valuation is based on available physical data that is pertinent to the product/service. When evaluated together, the subjective and objective evaluations combine to create weighted comments that can be presented in a suitable manner for public and personal review.

  • Publication number: 20170075414
    Abstract: A device for augmenting a user's environmental perception to enhance his/her situational awareness includes a visual display element which can be either implanted on an IntraOcular Lens (IOL), or mounted on extracorporeal eyewear. An operational mode for the device is selected from the group including: 1) direct, 2) camera, 3) sensor and 4) zoom. The selected mode is then configured with a format for presentation on the display element. Selection of the operational mode may be done manually, while appropriate changes in format to configure the operational mode can be accomplished under computer-control. For one embodiment of the device, all operational components are implantable.

  • Publication number: 20170017923
    Abstract: A system incorporates an infrastructural method for commercializing a market unit which requires refining the initial efforts of an external entity in a commercial venture by a process of elimination. In detail, the external entity conceives a plan for possible implementation into a work product and submits the plan to an internal entity. The internal entity may then select the plan after conception, and subsequently evaluate the work product after its implementation before further development of the market unit. Credits are appropriately issued to the internal entity for selecting the plans and for evaluating the work products. Credits are also issued to the external entity for selection of its plan for implementation and for a successful evaluation of the resultant work product for development as a market unit. Credits can then be used as value for exchange with any external entity participating in the system.

  • Publication number: 20160331988
    Abstract: A control system for delivering energy waveform radiation to influence in vivo tissue is described. For the system, the energy waveform radiation is generated by a radiation unit and is directed along a pathway to the tissue and a registration unit is provided to identify a start place relative to the in vivo tissue. Also, a monitor is provided to compare the start place with a base reference to measure an error signal between the start place and base reference. With this measured error signal, a controller operates the radiation unit using input from the monitor to effectively attain and maintain a zero error signal. More specifically, the controller can provide operational parameter inputs to the radiation unit for configuring the waveform radiation including a radiation frequency, f, and a volume intensity level, v, for the radiation and an exposure time interval, ti.

  • Publication number: 20160262974
    Abstract: A system and method for balancing the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) of a person to achieve a desired physiological response requires a computer for translating a measured physiological function into a fundamental tone, ftone. In particular, the fundamental tone, ftone, is based on an inflection between sympathetic and parasympathetic responses from the ANS of the person. Binaural frequencies (f1 and f2) are established to straddle the fundamental tone, ftone, of the person, and are differentiated by a preselected beat frequency, fbeat (i.e. a brain wave frequency). A headphone is then used for simultaneously transmitting a respective binaural frequency (f1 or f2) to a respective auditory canal of the person, to thereby use the beat frequency, fbeat, for achievement of the desired physiological response. Operationally, once it has been ascertained by the computer, the fundamental tone, ftone, can be retrieved from a backup service (i.e. the “cloud”).

  • Publication number: 20140257257
    Abstract: A system and its method for treating targeted tissue in the vitreous cavity of an eye include a laser unit for generating a laser beam and a detector for creating an image of the targeted tissue. The system also includes a computer which defines a focal spot path for emulsifying the targeted tissue. A comparator that is connected with the computer then controls the laser unit to move the focal spot of the laser beam. This focal spot movement is accomplished to treat the targeted tissue, while minimizing deviations of the focal spot from the defined focal spot path.
