  • Publication number: 20200130917
    Abstract: An Ultrasound Transmission Gel Packet Having Internal Heat Source and Method of Use. The gel packet is sized for a single use, rather than for multiple applications. The gel packets are not pre-heated, but rather are quickly heatable on demand. The gel packets may incorporate a variety of optional internal heating methods, including chemical activation, mechanical agitation and electrical activation, among others. The gel packets are sealed and therefore have extended shelf lives, and further are disposable after use.

  • Patent number: 10621954
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for improving interactions with and between computers in content searching, generating, hosting and/or providing systems supported by or configured with personal computing devices, servers and/or platforms. The systems interact to identify and retrieve data within or across platforms, which can be used to improve the quality of data used in processing interactions between or among processors in such systems. The disclosed systems and methods provide systems and methods for automatically filtering a compressed media file for perceptual display of the media content in a modified, higher-resolution format. The disclosed systems and methods apply novel visual filtering techniques to a compressed media file that enable the display of the rendered media content to appear to be displayed as a modified, higher-resolution version of itself without actually modifying the compressed media file during rendering.

  • Patent number: 10543664
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for producing a molding made from blowing agent-containing foam comprising at least one fiber (F), wherein the at least one fiber (F) is partially introduced into the blowing agent-containing foam. The two ends of the respective fiber (F) that are not surrounded by the blowing agent-containing foam thus project from one side of the corresponding molding. The present invention also provides the molding as such. The present invention further provides a panel comprising at least one such molding, produced by the process according to the invention, and at least one further layer (S1). The present invention also provides for the production of the panels of the invention and for the use thereof, for example as a rotor blade in wind turbines.
