  • Patent number: 12011072
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a carrying bag includes a carrying bag body formed by a security panel assembly comprising a cut-resistant fabric or mesh, with a strap channel having at least two spaced-apart reinforced channel openings; and a carrying strap comprising: first and second wire cables; a first flexible material having a first lateral region folded around the first wire cable to enclose the first wire cable and a second lateral region folded around the second wire cable to enclose the second wire cable; and a second flexible material arranged on or over a central region of the first flexible material. Representative embodiments may include a water-resistant pocket coupled to a protected seam and extending to an exterior of the carrying bag body; and a fastener to close the water-resistant pocket external to the carrying bag body.

  • Patent number: 11969214
    Abstract: Introduced here are retinal cameras having one or more optical components whose position can be modified so that the left and right eyes can be imaged during a single imaging operation. Collectively, the optical component(s) may be referred to as an “optical assembly.” An optical assembly can include the objective lens, lens tube, and other optical components such as mirror(s), light source(s), capturing medium(s), etc. An optical assembly of a retinal camera may be movable between a first position and a second position along an arcuate path. By moving the optical assembly between the first and second positions along the arcuate path, the retinal camera can align the lens tube with the left and right eyes of an individual while clearing her nose. Thus, the retinal camera may generate images of the left and right eyes during an imaging procedure without requiring that the individual move her head.

  • Publication number: 20240078116
    Abstract: A method for configuring and deploying execution environments for software applications includes receiving a bootstrap execution environment from a data store, the bootstrap execution environment including a software application, the software application including a manifest of dependencies. The method includes executing the bootstrap execution environment and determining whether an enhanced execution environment is available from the data store. When the enhanced execution environment is available from the data store, the method includes receiving the enhanced execution environment from the data store and enhancing the bootstrap execution environment based on the received enhanced execution environment. When the enhanced execution environment is not available from the data, the method includes enhancing the bootstrap execution environment based on the manifest of dependencies to create the enhanced execution environment and storing the enhanced execution environment in the data store.

  • Publication number: 20240032793
    Abstract: Introduced here are retinal cameras having optical stops whose size and/or position can be modified to increase the size of the space in which an eye can move while being imaged. In some embodiments, an optical stop is mechanically moved to recover retinal image quality as the subject shifts their eye. In some embodiments, an optical stop is digitally created using a pixelated liquid crystal display (LCD) layer having multiple pixels that are individually controllably. In some embodiments, multiple non-pixelated LCD layers are connected to one another to form a variable transmission stack, and each LCD layer within the variable transmission stack may be offset from the other LCD layers. In such embodiments, the optical stop can be moved by changing which LCD layer is active at a given point in time.

  • Publication number: 20230351148
    Abstract: An example method comprises projecting analysis data to a first embedding based on at least one metric, determining a first lowest cover resolution that identifies non-overlapping secondary coverings based on sets within one of the covers, identifying a branch point based on the non-overlapping secondary coverings, generating subsets from the branch point, for each subset from the branch point, determining a second lowest cover resolution that identifies non-overlapping secondary coverings to identify a new branch point and new subsets from that branch point of the first connected-component network, for each leaf of the connected-component network, identify embeddings of a feature space and generate a local object embedding space using the transposition of segmented features with related objects, adding coordinates of objects within each leaf of the local object embedding to a data array, projecting array data to a second embedding, determining a third lowest cover resolution of the second embedding that iden

  • Patent number: 11759106
    Abstract: In some embodiments, readily understandable information displays are provided to help an operator guide an eye of a subject into an eyebox of a retinal imaging system. In some embodiments, a three-dimensional position of the eye with respect to the retinal imaging system is determined, and an interface that includes a three-dimensional representation of the position of the eye with respect to the eyebox is generated. In some embodiments, the gaze direction may also be determined and presented in the interface, so that the operator can also prompt the subject to correct issues with incorrect gaze direction.

  • Publication number: 20220338733
    Abstract: A retinal camera system comprises an eyepiece lens disposed within a housing, a retinal image sensor, and a visual guidance indicator. The retinal image sensor is adapted to acquire a retinal image of an eye through the eyepiece lens. The visual guidance indicator is disposed in or on the housing peripherally about the eyepiece lens. The visual guidance indicator is positioned and oriented relative to the eyepiece lens to emit a visual cue along an optical path that does not pass through the eyepiece lens. The visual cue is adapted to facilitate alignment of the eye to the eyepiece lens.

  • Patent number: 10827924
    Abstract: A technique for retinal images includes configuring a dynamic illuminator to illuminate the retina with an illumination pattern. An image frame of the retina is captured while illuminated with the illumination pattern. The configuring and the capturing are iterated to sequentially reconfigure the dynamic illuminator to illuminate the retina with a plurality of different illumination patterns and to capture a plurality of image frames each illuminated with one of the different illumination patterns. The image frames are combined into a composite retinal image.
