  • Publication number: 20220126115
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for treating clinical or pre-clinical skin damage in a skin field of a subject, wherein the skin field has been allocated a skin cancerization field index (SCR) score of at least 1 as determined by a process comprising the steps of: (i) assessing the number of keratoses in the skin field; (ii) assessing the thickness of the thickest keratosis in the skin field; and (iii) assessing the proportion of the field affected by clinical or subclinical skin damage. Based on the assessments made in (i), (ii) and (iii) the subject is optionally treated by at least one of (a) freezing one or more lesions, (b) shaving, curetting or surgically removing one or more lesions, (c) applying a topical treatment for actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, and (d) radiation therapy.

  • Publication number: 20220083986
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing a user-targeted report are provided. One method includes receiving an audio signal at a device, encoding a request for the report targeted to the requesting user. A set of incomplete tasks is identified, where tasks have a task-due timestamp and a reported status that indicates whether the task has been associated with a previous report. A set of upcoming tasks is identified from the incomplete tasks. A set of overdue tasks is identified from the incomplete tasks. From upcoming/overdue tasks a set of to-be-reported tasks is generated, via filtering criteria applied to the reported status of each task included in the upcoming/overdue tasks. The report includes a reminder for at least a portion of the tasks included in the set of to-be-reported tasks.

  • Publication number: 20160009577
    Abstract: A water purification device which can process contaminated water, and upgrade it to a potable quality or other secondary useful purposes such as irrigation, shower or laundry and general water. This is achieved without the use of chemicals or membranes. The device consists of a geometrical configuration of riser and connecting tubes for contacting ozone and ultraviolet (UV) light with said contaminated water in order to provide an advance oxidation environment, resulting in disinfection, a reduction in biological activity, chemical oxygen demand, organic species and other water-borne contaminants such as fungi, molds algae, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, oils, fats, tastes and odours. The geometrical configuration of contacting the ozone, UV and water, combined with an ozone injection system that results in optimum disinfection of the water.

  • Patent number: 8219379
    Abstract: Software is tested for execution on data processing apparatus with plural processors that share access to a memory. The memory has a memory ordering type specifying an ordering freedom which allows memory access requests to be processed out of order from an original program order. A simulator for each processor executes a sequence of instructions in program order. An access buffer associated with one of the processor simulators receives and stores access requests issued by that simulator when executing access instructions within the sequences. A controller selects and applies an eviction policy to determine an order in which access requests are output from the access buffer to the memory so that the ordering freedom is exercised in a manner compliant with the memory ordering type but to a degree exceeding that expected within the data processing apparatus.

  • Patent number: 7762400
    Abstract: A packaging tray including an outer tray (1), having a base (4) and side walls (2) defining a packaging space and false bottom (10) of the tray defining a discrete exudate-collection compartment immediately above the base and reducing the packaging space by the size of the discrete compartment. The false bottom is peripherally connected to the walls and provided with an array of perforations (36) in a discrete minor central region (20) to allow exudate to pass through itself into the exudate-collection compartment. In addition, the tray includes means (28, 30) for gas transfer between the exudate-collection compartment and the packaging space, in addition to and separate from the perforations in the false bottom, and including means inhibiting flow exudate back into the packaging space.

  • Patent number: 7434167
    Abstract: A method and system providing a client with user interface information are described. An accessibility system for providing user interface information to a client. The accessibility system comprises an accessibility system core including user interface automation services and APIs. The user interface automation tools filter information based on whether the user interface information is interesting to the client. The accessibility system additionally comprises a client side interface including a logical tree for revealing user interface information that is interesting to the client and for hiding user interface information that is not interesting to the client. The accessibility system also comprises a server side interface for facilitating information transfer from a server side regardless of the server side technology.
