  • Publication number: 20190297985
    Abstract: Systems and methods of a safety helmet for protecting the human head against repetitive impacts, moderate impacts and severe impacts so as to significantly reduce the likelihood of both translational and rotational brain injury and concussions can be provided. The helmet can include an outer shell, an omnidirectional liner disposed within and coupled to the outer shell and configured to move relative to the outer shell, and a chinstrap coupled to the omnidirectional liner.

  • Publication number: 20190262070
    Abstract: Intra-cardiac voltage data display systems display a plurality of data sets derived at least from intra-cardiac voltage data sampled by an electrode. In some embodiments, at least some of the data sets are derived from a portion of the intra-cardiac voltage data that excludes an excludable portion of the intra-cardiac voltage data having a relationship with an occurrence of a particular cardiac event to facilitate identification of the existence of a transmural lesion in tissue adjacent the electrode. In some embodiments, the particular cardiac event is the occurrence of an R wave in the cardiac cycle, and the excludable portion is a V wave in the cardiac cycle.

  • Publication number: 20190269027
    Abstract: This is directed to connecting two or more elements using an intermediate element constructed from a material that changes between states. An electronic device can include one or more components constructed by connecting several elements. To provide a connection having a reduced or small size or cross-section and construct a component having high tolerances, a material can be provided in a first state in which it flows between the elements before changing to a second state in which it adheres to the elements and provides a structurally sound connection. For example, a plastic can be molded between the elements. As another example, a composite material can be brazed between the elements. In some cases, internal surfaces of the elements can include one or more features for enhancing a bond between the elements and the material providing the interface between the elements.

  • Publication number: 20190266662
    Abstract: A web site that presents a user interface that displays images of products to a user. The product images that are displayed are of products that are recently trending or popular as determined by data derived from one or more sources. Each product image is displayed without the price of the respective product and without text naming, describing or identifying the respective product. Therefore, the user interface is constructed to focus on the trending products themselves so that the user interface is clean and uncluttered, allowing customers to focus on the trending products for possible purchase.

  • Patent number: 10383473
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for preparing a brewed beverage includes positioning a capsule with a brewing ingredient at a lateral opening of a brewing chamber. Heated water is conveyed to into the brewing chamber to brew the beverage by filling the capsule with the heated water. An outlet valve on of the brewing chamber is opened for filling a vessel with the brewed beverage through a feed nozzle. The brewing chamber is moved together with the feed nozzle from a brewing and filling position, where the capsule is positioned at the brewing chamber and the feed nozzle is above a passage for filling the vessel, to a rinsing position where the capsule is removed from the brewing chamber and the nozzle is above a guide element for directing water for disposal. In the rinsing position, the brewing chamber is rinsed with rinse water which is disposed via the nozzle and the guide element.

  • Patent number: 10368936
    Abstract: A graphical path, which may illustrate a proposed transducer-activation path, may be defined in accordance with first user input, which places a first user input element in an activated state, motion-based user input, and second user input, which places the first user input element in a deactivated state. The graphical path may be displayed as including transducer graphical elements, between-transducer graphical elements, or both, and may be displayed among at least one graphical representation of intra-cardiac information. Activation of transducers corresponding to transducer graphical elements included in the graphical path may be initiated during or after completion of the definition of the graphical path. Such activation may include the transmission of energy sufficient for tissue ablation along an ablation path corresponding to the graphical path.

  • Publication number: 20190224990
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for preparing a decorative fired substrate such as ceramic, glass, brick, metal or metal enamel. The process includes a step of digitally applying a primer ink composition comprising a metal or metalloid ion component dissolved in a liquid matrix on selective locations of the substrate. The primer ink composition can be applied before or after the application of a color ink. By applying a primer ink composition, the color of the substrate is improved after the substrate is fired, and the manufacture cost is reduced compared with current industrial decorative ceramic tile processes.

  • Patent number: 10335467
    Abstract: A streamlined method for purifying alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) from an AAT-containing protein mixture, such as Coh fraction IV precipitate, is provided. In the method of the invention, contaminating proteins are destabilized by cleavage of disulfide bonds with a reducing reagent, such as dithiol, which does not affect AAT. The destabilized proteins are then preferentially adsorbed on a solid protein-adsorbing material, without the addition of a salt as a precipitante. Spearation of the solid absorbent from the solution leaves a purified AAT solution that is directly suitabale for chromatographic purification, without the need for extensive desalting as in prior art processes. A process incorporating this method, which provides pharmaceutical grade AAT in high yield on a commercial scale, is also described.

  • Publication number: 20190194419
    Abstract: A polymer composition that can be used to form a melt-extruded film is provided. The polymer composition may contain an olefinic polymer and a transition metal salt. By selectively controlling specific aspects of the polymer and the transition metal salt, as well as the relative concentration of each component, the present inventors have discovered that the resulting composition can exhibit a relatively fast oxidation rate, which has been found to improve the adhesion of the composition to a wide variety of substrates.
