  • Patent number: 10300294
    Abstract: It is an aspect of the present invention to provide a method for recording a response to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) utilizing a bi-phasic double pulse pair from a TMS coil device to stimulate a subject wherein the second pulse has a lower amplitude compared to the first pulse in the bi-phasic double pulse pair. Significant advantages are achieved using bi-phasic double pulse pairs, particularly where the second pulse in a pair has an intensity lower than the first. Obtaining measurements is simpler and more accurate as the number and intensity of stimulation can be reduced compared to standard single pulse stimulation.

  • Publication number: 20180177397
    Abstract: Systems and methods of wireless sensing of physiological data includes obtaining physiological data from a patient with a wireless sensor. A patient location device determines a location of the patient. A location of the wireless sensor is obtained. The physiological data from the wireless sensor is associated to the patient based upon a determined proximity of the location of the wireless sensor to the location of the patient.

  • Publication number: 20180147024
    Abstract: Systems and methods for wireless sensing include a wireless senor which includes a physiological sensor and an identification sensor. The physiological sensor obtains physiological data from a patient and the identification sensor detects a unique characteristic of the patient as identification data. The identification data is used to produce a unique identifier which is transmitted wirelessly from the wireless sensor along with the physiological data to associate the transmitted physiological data to the patient.

  • Patent number: 9042828
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and computer program product example embodiments enable optimized discovery between mobile devices. In example embodiments, a method comprises transmitting, by a wireless device, a periodic beacon message, the beacon message including an indication that the wireless device is currently unconnectable and indicating a next awake period and response opportunity for connecting the wireless device; entering, by the wireless device, a sleep state until the next awake period; awaking from the sleep state for transmitting the periodic beacon message and determining whether the awake period contains a response opportunity; and when determining that the awake period contains a response opportunity, remaining in an awake state for listening for responses to the periodic beacon message.

  • Patent number: 8116694
    Abstract: A system for configuring antenna systems for selecting directional communication signals corresponding to other apparatuses. Apparatuses having activities that require directional wireless communication may search for other apparatuses that can fulfill these requirements. This search may include, for example, the transmission of wireless messages requesting a set of communication beams usable for beam training (for example, one or more beam training sequences). Other apparatuses that are able to satisfy the requirements of the searching apparatus may respond to the request message by transmitting a message that comprises at least information usable for configuring beam training configuration in the apparatus.
